In this place, saw her face
He was more than happier
Made for Him, it's a sin
That she was not faithful

She couldn't be
Foolishly more unfaithful if she tried
He did not care
Wanted her
Despite lies and wandering eyes

He deserves the very best
But He loves her nonetheless

She's forgotten her first love
(Maybe one day she'll return)
He's forgotten that she ever went away
And broke His heart

Lavished on silver, gold, anything she needed
Wasted thoughts, broken hearts
Love was not acknowledged

Well, He deserves the very best
But He loves her nonetheless

She's forgotten her first love
(Maybe one day she'll return)
He's forgotten that she ever went away
And broke His heart

God only knows
That He's shown her more love than she deserves
There'll come a time when she'll find
That He's not there to give her love
And He'll be gone away from her forever

Oh, yeah

She's forgotten her first love
(Maybe one day she'll return)
He's forgotten that she ever went away
And broke His heart

She's forgotten her first love, love
He's forgotten that she ever went away
And broke His heart

    This song is about a story in the Old Testament book of Hosea. Gomer was Hosea's wife. She had been a prostitute and God told Hosea to go take Gomer as his wife, so Hosea was obedient and did that. After a while, Gomer left him and went back to being a prostitute. God told Hosea to go get his wife and tell her that she was to live with him. He went and bought her and she came to live with him then.
    I think this is a very good picture of what Jesus did for us. Our sin is just as ugly and disgusting as that of this prostitute when compared with God's righteousness. nevertheless, God sent Jesus to save us. And we killed Him. Yet he continues to love us, even when we turn away from him and go right back to committing the very sins that He died for. He still loves us anyway and comes back for us and tells us that we aren't to sin anymore, but are to follow Him.

    Good explanation Mabes. The story is found in Hosea 1-3. This is definately Third Day's best song. The solo at the end is awesome.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
