I never thought I'd live to see the day
I never thought I'd give it all away
But as long as I'm close you'll be here
And as long as I'm far I know you'll live
But it all comes crashing down in
The face of maturity

Nothing hides her feelings quite like eye shadow
And all she wears is pink
You think maybe if I asked her
She'd move in with me?
I think maybe she would do that

I never thought I'd live to see the day
I never thought I'd give it all away
But as long as I'm close you'll be here
And as long as I'm far I know you'll live
But it all comes crashing down in
The face of maturity

Nothing hides her feelings quite like eye shadow
And all she wears is pink
You think maybe if I asked her
She'd move in with me?
I think maybe she would do that

Nothing hides her feelings quite like eye shadow
And all she wears is pink
You think maybe if I asked her
She'd move in with me?
I think maybe she would do that

And I know this is the last you'll hear from me
And I know this is the last you'll hear from me
I leave you with my love and responsibility
Please don't destroy what I have made
Leave it as if I would have stayed
And I know this is the last you'll hear from me

    Dude this song is awesome....The guitar is incredible and the violin uh...whats the word...'interludes' lol? Whaeva..thats awesome. "Nothing hides her feelings quite like eyeshadow..and all she wears is pink.." Oye..exactly. I wish my love would ask me to move in with him lol. Oh well...I guess still being in HS prevents that somewhat. This is a great song...IF ANYONE FINDS OUT ABOUT THEM GOING ON TOUR OR SOMETHING...post it...ah somewhere. PEACE OUT

    i really dont like this song. im not trying to be like those assholes who go and post how they hate a band, cuz i can appreciate this stuff. i just think that it's way too simple and sounds like any other band in the same genre. there is just no complexity or depth, lyrically or musically. everyone should listen to third eye blind, grade and thursday.

    "Nothing hides her feelings quite like eyeshadow"... I really like this song, because while it may seem somewhat "simple" (as the last commenter put it), it expresses quite a lot using only some "simple" words, catchy acoustic guitar, a violin, and some nice rythm. This girl that he talks of covers herself up with makeup and pink clothes to paint an image of herself to everyone else. All he wants to do is be with her. Great song.

    I actually think Keepsake sort of stands out in this album (The End of Sound) in terms of any other pop-punk, rock or whatever band. They have poppy lyrics, with great vocals and simple guitarwork, its really quite great. I just wish Shane would've screamed more on this album. Such a shame they broke up.

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
