Today is just like all the others
I'm not alright I've cried my last tears
I'm bleeding out my pain as you scream at me (Just why?)

You've got me waiting by myself
I never wanted more than this
What will it take to get the truth
I'm on my knees

Another page of I'm sorry's
Addressed to me
Another story for the collection
Of memories folded neatly

You've got me waiting by myself
I never wanted more than this
What will it take to get the truth
I'm on my knees

You've got me waiting by myself
I never wanted more than this
What will it take to get the truth
I'm on my knees

[Repeat: x4]
And I will never make the same mistake...

You've got me waiting by myself
I never wanted more than this
What will it take to get the truth
I'm on my knees

You've got me waiting by myself
I never wanted more than this
What will it take to get the truth
I'm on my knees

    First off..Finch is a great band.

    2nd i think the lyrics are about a guy who does alot for a girl and gets treated like dirt but still is there waiting for her. ANd he wanst the truth..and he wants to move on. "Another page of im sorrys adressed to me" means taht she is saying sorry again.."i will never make teh same mistake" meaning he will move on...

    Finch Owns. Im glad they went to MCA records like a smart band. Along with Midtown....But i think they could have picked a better music video then "letters to you" i think Three Simple Words" would be their best pick.

    i think this song is about him during the process of killing himself. like he just took a buncha pills and is waiting for them to kick in.

    i think the lyrics are self explanatory that way... -kid emo

    To me, the lyrics explain a guy in a relationship who goes through alot.. cries, waits.. for a girl who does nothing but apologize for all of her lying. He has been through relationships like this before and all he asked for her to do was tell the truth, but she fails to do that. He becomes tired of the monotonous feelings of pain and countless let downs and decides to move on, let go.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.
