In love and lonely
In love and lonely

I'm not with you, my baby
Just to see you cry
I'm in love with you
Not the tears in your eyes

I can't remember
The last time you smiled
Oh, I know how it feels
I know what it's like

To be
In love and lonely
In love and lonely

Don't know what to do, my baby
It's not alright
This can't be the end
The time to say goodbye

No, I won't walk away that easy
After all this time
Oh, you know how it feels
You know what it's like

To be
In love and lonely
In love and lonely

Oh, you know how it feels
You know what it's like
You know how it is
But you just can't stop crying

In love and lonely
In love and lonely

In love and lonely
In love and lonely

    I can so relate to this song. Clearly it means you are lonely because you can't be with this person you love and because you can't be with them breaking it off is the only answer. But really if you love someone so much you would do anything to keep it together.

    yeah so sad.. tear

    I've loved HIM for quite some time, not as long as others, but a good while. Ever since the day I first heard them, I've listened to them at least once a day. They've grown and evolved, and now, sound insanely different from when they started. I've been attached to Dark Light since it came out, and upon discovering this old song (on the internet) recently, have fallen in love with it. I don't have a personal connection to it, linking it to something in my past that it reminds me of, but when I first heard this song, it brought tears, stinging my eyes. I love what HIM has become, they're amazing, but I miss the way they used to be, so much.

    i love this song. HIM is myfavorite band, && has been for about a year now. this is one of my favorites by them. i can completely relate to the lyrics in this song.

    "No I won't walk away that easy After all this time Oh you know how it feels You know what it's like"

    Valos saying how he doesnt want to walk away from her because he knows that then it will be over. maybe he hurt her before to because he says "you know how it feels, you know what its like" im not sure, but that`s what i think.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
