Oh my sweet give me one last chance
to show my love for you
just one last time
To fall asleep in your arms
we had come so far together
now we don't even speak to each other

my words aren't strong enough
to express my heart so I'm only left with
memories in my mind

these days seem so long without you
now the sun doesn't shine as bright
as it did when we were alone together

Do you remember the nights we spent together
just staring into the starry night
the pain hurts me like an open wound
please just tell me that you still love me

I know I made mistakes
and I am truly sorry
but I never thought
that you'd say good-bye
I want to tell you

these days seem so long without you
now the sun doesn't shine as bright
as it did when we were alone together

and I'll move on
my heart's broken
for my first love

I know deep inside my heart
there are words and those words are yours
I know deep inside my heart
there are words and those words are yours

    I love this song, and it's so true ... it explains the hurt that you feel when someone you're in love with breaks up with you and tells you its over and they dont feel the same way anymore ... I love SR's lyrics with a passion ... they are good good music ...

    i love the lyrics but i dont really like the guys voice, the melody of the song, or anything else musically. just last night the boy who just left me to go back to his ex-girlfriend came over and we sat in his parked car in the dark because he insisted this was "our song." i began to cry, trying not to let him know i was, but he knew, and we held each other while this song played.

    this is my favorite song by student rick yet i'm confused as to what it means... please just tell me that you still love me i know i made mistakes and i am truly sorry but i never thought that you’d say good-bye at one point it seems to me like he broke up with her and regrets doing so, then it seems that she broke his heart because she was the one who said goodbye... does anyone else feel the same way? but it doesnt really matter cause i like the song nonetheless.. and they were really good live when i saw them over the summer. :)

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.

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."

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,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.
