You left me there alone
When you hung up the phone
You made me feel so blind
But my eyes opened this time
All happened that night
With feelings I just can't fight
Killed me through and through
And I know it killed you too

Don't know what I'll do
Don't know how I'll be
Something that I had
Has been taken out of me
Don't know what I'll do
Don't know how I'll be
Something that I had
Has been taken out of me

No
Can't wait for you
Won't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Shouldn't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Won't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Shouldn't wait for you

Now I'm standing near
For that call that won't be here
You've done this all before
Still I come back for more
Knowing what you've done
My senses have gone numb
This time you'll see
What you really meant to me, yeah

Don't know what I'll do
Don't know how I'll be
Something that I had
Has been taken out of me
Don't know what I'll do
Don't know how I'll be
Something that I had
Has been taken out of me

No
Can't wait for you
Won't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Shouldn't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Won't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Shouldn't wait for you

Now I'm standing near
For that call that won't be here
You've done this all before
Still I come back for more
Knowing what you've done
My senses have gone numb
This time you'll see
What you really meant to me, yeah

Really meant to me, yeah...
Really meant to me, yeah...
Really meant to me, yeah...

No
Can't wait for you
Won't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Shouldn't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Won't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Shouldn't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Won't wait for you
Can't wait for you
Shouldn't wait for you

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
