Prove.
Oh yea.

Kneelin' on my pillow God, kneelin' on my pillow..
I will see there..
I will be there..

You and me, my glowing team.
We will pasture.
I will capture.

You and me, my glowing team.
23 rolls just can't be wrong.
I got a box full of nails and notes.

Why can't I glow?
Prove it in a box.
How you livin' now?
Glow.

It's got the best of me.
I will sever... I will be there..
You and me, my glowing team.

(speaking)

I, I see the fucking manger.
On her desk she left a warning.
And I said, "Will I ever see all that's coming through for me?"
And will I ever break the mountains on the bridge?

Twenty three.
Watch me.
And I..
Why can't I glow?

Best of this filled with blocks.
How you livin' now?

Glow.

I will see there.. I will be there..
You and me... my glowing team.

    Where can I hear this song? I've got two copies of the other version, but this is foreign to me... Maybe I'm an idiot? Lemme know

    This is a tight ass song. One of GlassJAw's best unreleased song. Correction:

    "Someone's trudging closer, in the flow of what is well. As it hurts the heart I'm more convinced and you can bet I'm scared as hell. "

    Should be:

    "Summer's trudging closer, And the flow of white as well, It's the heart of nuclear winter, And you can bet I'm scared as hell."

    Gotta love the guitar riff in this song.

    yeh. the one that probably everyone else is listening to is the "unreleased version" or that's what i've heard. it's a bit.. angrier? for the lack of better word. as in they say "on her FLESH she left a warning" rather than "on her DESK".. yeh. i still haven't heard this version of it. whatever. this is me when i probably don't even know what i'm talking about. yeh. who knows?

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.

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.

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.
Album art
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.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
