Six days went by
trying to forget her face
It was you and I
we were too young for these games
and all the pictures that I kept
and all the things I should have said
it was you and i
but mostly me
lost in you
and i cant find myself again
lost in you
and i cant find myself again
six weeks went by
still pretending that i'm fine
it was you and i
holding back what's on our minds
all the things I should have said
all the letters left unsent
it was you and I
but mostly me
(chorus)
six months went by
I almost forgot your face
until they played that song tonight
the one we used to hate
(chorus x 2)

    I think this song is about a guy in love with a girl, and although it takes two to make a relationship work... it was mostly him.

    "It was you and I... but mostly me" (love that line)

    Anyone else find it interesting that the numbers he repeats are 6? Repeats it 3 times... 666, also the number of the devil/hell. >:-~

    THIS SONG KICKS your butt. This is about how hard it is to get over a break up with somebody that really meant a lot. I think we all can totally relate to having thought about something from the past and wishing it was still there.

    Its also about regret... and wondering if things could have been different if you had done or said something you meant to

    I agree with gen-g. We all have something we have lost that was so precious and important to us. Wishing it was still there, and wondring if you could have done anything to keep it, or fix it.

    i love this song, and i can totally relate to it... a break up that you can't get over, and part of you doesn't want to. you wonder if things were done differently what could have come out of it...

    i think it's about a guy who was totally in love with a girl but something went wrong and he regrets losing her. i think it's a very meaningful love song in a cheasy way

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.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.
