It's the song that just keeps playing on the radio
And you know I haven't seen you for a while
I lie awake at night
And I wonder how you are
And I wish that I could be you again

Is it luck or is it fate
That brings us back
Or is it just a common point of view
Time has put a spell on you
You never seem to change
And I wish that I could see you again

But I'll be here where the heart
When the dreams that we've been after
All come true
You will find me here where the heart is
I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you

It's the light that keeps shining day after day
When other loves have come and gone
I'll be here with open arms to take you in
And I wish that I could see you again

And in between
And when I need to see you again
All I have to do
Is close my eyes
Oh the picture's coming in my friend
I'll hold you again
But who knows when

But I'll be here where the heart
When the dreams that we've been after
All come true
You will find me here where the heart is
I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you

    This is such a beautifully sad song... She sings to an on-and-off lover she\'s in love with, but not only he doesn\'t know; he\'s in no position to acknowledge that. "You never seem to change" she sings bemoaning his playership. And all the while she, as much as him, take other partners. But, even in bed with anyone, she cannot forget him and that\'s why she says "And when I need to see you again, all I have to do is close my eyes. Oh the picture\'s coming in my friend."\nIt is really, really aching.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
