And here we go again,
We've taken it to the end,
With every waking moment,
We face this silent torment

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

Darkness is all I want to see
I could never put in to words
What it is you mean to me

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you
Love you, love you, love you

The candle is burning low
At the window to my soul
The reaper is at my door now
He's come to take me home

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

I, I'd sacrifice

    this, like the majority of their songs, is a love song.

    I think it's about how him and the person he's in love with have reached the end of their relationship. They've torn eachother to shreds and there's nothing left of either of them to give anymore. So, now he's at a point of wanting to end his life. Not in a selfish way though, he means to sacrifice himself to his lover as a final token of his love for her.

    honestly, most of their songs are so overly dramatic they seem cheesy, but despite that, I really like this one, and I think it is one of their deeper ones.

    Love. He loves someone. He loves them to the end. And possibly they dont love him. But would show his love by killing himself, just to make them happy.

    Song Meaning

    The song, as Sean has stated in interviews, is about a relationship that has no future- it's not about abuse or anything else overtly negative. Just a relationship that will never happen, though the feelings are there.

    And AKitty0543, you clearly have very little exposure to LAM's music if you think they are all love songs. Jesus, why do people like you comment when you know nothing about the subject?

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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,

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/

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.
