Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go

Oh, she found all the numbers I had in my car
Oh, she called all the ones I had marked with a star
Oh, I'm racing over to plead my case
Oh, saw it was me and slammed the door in my face
Fellas, tell me why how come we always doing wrong, doing wrong?
How come we can't keep it home, keep it home?
How come it always ends like this even though we know that

It ain't worth telling a lie
It ain't worth seein' ya cry
It ain't worth that's why I'm right here, begging you please don't go 'cause
It ain't worth killin' a home
It ain't worth being alone
It ain't worth that's why I'm right here, begging you please don't go, baby

Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go

Oh, I jeopardized everything I love
Oh, what the hell could I have been thinking of?
Oh, oh, oh, I should've left you right when I had the chance
Yeah, now you out there looking for a better man
Tell me why how come we always doing wrong, how come?
How come we can't keep it home? I don't know, I don't know
How come it always ends like this even thought we know that

It ain't worth telling a lie
It ain't worth seein' ya cry
It ain't worth that's why I'm right here, begging you please don't go 'cause
It ain't worth killin' a home
It ain't worth being alone
It ain't worth that's why I'm right here, begging you please don't go, baby

Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go

Oh, I didn't think it would get this bad
Never thought of losing you (now my heart is beating fast)
I'm trying to figure out in my mind what to do, find the words to say
Remember when you said that you'll never leave me?
I'm steady knocking on the door, but you don't hear me
I can't let this happen right now
Don't take your love
I know I'm in shock; it a doggone shame
How come we always doing wrong, how come?
How come we can't keep it home, how come?
How come it always ends like this even thought we know that

It ain't worth telling a lie
It ain't worth seein' ya cry
It ain't worth that's why I'm right here, begging you please don't go 'cause
It ain't worth killin' a home
It ain't worth being alone
It ain't worth that's why I'm right here, begging you please don't go, baby

Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go
Please don't go

    I think this is one of those good/sad songs. It's about him feeling bad for going behind his lady's back and feeling guilty for getting caught. Very typical....still a sweet song. I love the way he sings the chorus!

    I can relate to this song 100%. I screwed my ex-gf over twice for reasons I'm not even sure of. In "Where I Wanna Be", Donell Jones says he is full of lust and I guess that's my only excuse. I love my girlfriend and I don't know why I did the things I did. I'm just hoping she gives me that one and final chance to show her how important and special she is to me.

    This song hits home.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
