Release me from this struggle to be free
Won't you take my hand
Lead me to the promised land of your love
Step outside of this superficial life
Put your pretty lips on mine
Kiss me one more time and I'm gone

Who really cares?
Who really knows?
About these agents of despair
And their thrown together prose

Release me from this struggle to be free
I'll break my plans
To be in the gentle hands of your love
When you're by my side in these superficial times
Put your little hand in mine
Kiss me one more time and I'm gone

Who really cares?
Who really knows?
About these agents of despair
And their thrown together prose
Let them have his head
He's harmless you know
Watch him let you down
And leave you hanging on a rope
Hanging on a rope... hanging on a rope

I won't be fooled by your devious ways
Your ingenuine fears and your ingenuine pain
I look a wreck but somehow you look fine
You come to me
And ask me to ease our troubled mind
I won't be fooled again.....

I won't be fooled by your devious ways
I look a wreck but somehow you look fine.....

    Is it just me, or are there a few references to songs by "The Who"? E.g. "I won't be fooled again" sounds a spin on the line "We won't be fooled again".

    Bloody fantastic song! My second favourite song on the album, but "I don't Remember" is my number one :D

Jesse with the long hair....

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
