We pack our bags again
so long farewell goodbye my love
and I'll see you then
the third week of July
I'll hold you in my arms all night
and kiss your lips

tell me why
why I cannot touch you...
so far away...
please don't cry...
we'll cross the bridge together
just meet me there...

I'm heading east back home
1000 miles
steal your heart
away from me
this time will come again
we'll pack our bags goodbye my love
I'll see you then

tell me why
why I cannot touch you...
so far away...
please don't cry...
We'll cross the bridge together
just meet me there...
just meet me there...

    ...the emotion contained in this song can not be described. The poise is exceedingly delicate. I'm astounded.

    This is by far my favorite Student Rick song. It's one of those songs were you drive around in your car while the sun's setting and you just drive and listen to it. Actually alot of student rick songs are like that for me.

    This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I love this song so much. I'm in a long distance relationship right now, and it's really hard, so this song means a lot to me. I think it's one of the best Student Rick songs.

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."

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.
