I'm not tryna hate.
You should of known better.
Better then to let him even get that close.
(Close enough to break your heart)
I tried to be there you made it so hard. Oh.
Should of listen from the jump.
Instead you tried to stunt.
I'm the one you want shawty gotta front.

You know you're the only one for me.
Why you settle for whatever when we're pose to be.
Tears running down your face.
They fall in the sea
Why you settle for whatever when we're pose to be.

I can see the tear drops.
Falling on your face now.
Why you settle for whatever when we're pose to be.
He never really loved you, I came to take his place now.
(oh)
Why you settle for whatever when we're pose to be together.

She hit me on the phone
I can hear the pain.
Baby it's a shame
He still playing games.
I tried to calm her down.
But she kept on tellin me that somethings going wrong.
You should of never ever let him get your love.
I swear you gave him something he didn't deserve.
I said you should of listen but you can't explain.
Why you going through the same on thing
You know!

You know you're the only one for me.
Why you settle for whatever when we're pose to be.
Tears running down your face.
They form the sea?
Why you settle for whatever when we're pose to be.

I can see the tear drops.
Falling on your face now.
Why you settle for whatever when we're pose to be.
He never really loved you, I came to take his place now.
(oh)
Why you settle for whatever when we're pose to be together.

Baby girl look at me.
I'm so sick and tired of wiping tears from your cheek.
You say you want to be with me.
But you still with him so it makes me think. (Yeah)
Bout the things that you said.
All the phone calls, and the e-mails that I read.
The lonely nights in your bed.
Are you telling me the truth or are you messing with my head?
So now you want to be with me or should I go now.
I really wanna roll with you so how.
Are you gonna handle this.
You said he treat you wrong, but you love my kiss.
It's time you tell me whats on your mind.
Praying to god that you ain't that blind.
Real love is so hard to find.
Do You want to shine? it's mine

I can see the tear drops.
Falling on your face now.
He never really loved you, I came to take his place now.
I know you want to be with me
It's not that late yeah
Call me up when you're done

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

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.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

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"
