Were you honest when you said
"I could never leave your bed"
Wake me up and let me know you're alive
And will you fall in love again
Is the scent slowly spreading
I've been answering machines all night
And are the doctors dancing in
While the ambulances sing
Another boy without a sharper knife
The moment, that's where I
Kill the conversation

Wrap this up
With a knife that loves to feel
How do you know how deep to go before it's real
Take me home
Can I even complicate your breathing
I guess I'm just your average boy
This is me

With a knife in the back
And a grip on the grass
It's cold and I don't want to be here
I guess I'm never comfortable or situational
Are we losing or beginning
To try a new life without you
The moment, that's where I
Kill the conversation
Wrap this up

With a lie that I'm enjoying every minute with myself
And she could make hell feel just like home
So I'm never leaving her alone
But if your lightning lips aren't mine
Then I don't know the awkward stranger to my right
But she's crying
I only need one hand to drive
When you're with me
You are my getaway
Oh no

And don't you ever feel alone
And don't you wish you were home
Cut the lust tonight
Alright, alright tell me why my
Little Mona Lisa told a lie

Do you want me
Do you want to let me know that you're OK
A diamond gold ring
Customized to cut your circulation
But I couldn't let you go
No, I never let you go my dear
So keep talking cause I love to hear your voice
Your voice again

    this song, to me, is saying that he still loves this girl, but she doesnt feel the same way, "...Can i even complicate your breathing? I guess im just your average boy.." When people love eachother they take one another's breath away, and he doesnt do that for her, so he is not special, and is just "your average boy"

    I think it's about a relationship going wrong, and the girl leaves him. He doesn't even know who she is anymore, after all whats happened. He tries to kill himself by cutting; 'How do you know how deep to go before it's real?" The beginning is pretty self explanatory. The whole song is about the bittersweet feelings he has for this girl, how he will still lover her no matter what happens and what she does.

    simply amazing. first time i heard them, was this song. & i'm hooked. i kind of think its about a guy in love with this girl, &he's put his heart on the line to be with her.. & she screwed him over. he never really meant anything to her.. but he's still in love with her.

    idk. but thats what i think..

    well i think this song is about a boy and a girl, who were obviously inlove at a time, but something happened, they broke up, and later, the boy realizes he still loves this girl, but than he finds out, the relationship doesn't mean anything to her anymore, and he's doubting if it really meant anything to her in the first place. but thats my opinion:]

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
