A few words spoken quietly mean so much when said just right
Those words can also break a heart when two begin to fight
A love so strong is now nothing; his life begins to fall apart
She loves him so dearly but her mind is demanding a new start

He tries to be understanding about the life she is now requiring
She wants her independence, wants herself to be deciding
For her future that in reflection can’t be a glossy picture
The family ties, emotions rise, he ends his love resistance

Hopelessly he strives on, making advances to the world
Trying hard to forget what once stood as one, and what shall remain untold

He drifts away, life’s in a daze, the mental pain he can’t erase
She meant so very much to him, his life, his world, his everything
He questions what remains in life, whether or not it’s worth living
It seems she was always taking and he was forever giving

Alone he sits in his quiet room wondering where it all went wrong
Looking for the pieces to the puzzle, remembering all her favorite songs

The nightclub scene she now enjoys seems to be so mistimed
To him, he has already been there; he has used all the chat up lines
Laying in his bed awake, staring at the clock
Feeling lonely, lost and ill, and praying all this will stop

The boys cluster around his naïve love as they move in for the thrill
He cries himself to sleep, concerned that maniacs will kill
For less than she would ever give, he must try to forget
The years they spent when love was strong that finally made him write this song

So if you ever think that life is just not worth living
If you doubt that you have anything left at all, worthy of truly giving
When life’s not making any sense and you're filled with anger and resent
Remember love can conquer all, it is the start of state hates final fall

If people laugh because their mind is drifting, they’re acting out the part
Of not holding any feelings or having any heart
Just smile in their face and then walk away for they will realise one day
As life moves on and they grow old they will realise they have been living the way they’re told

That their life has been a sacrifice to Government’s systematic lies
That true friendship is inseparable and emotions if used responsibly
Will light the spark for all to see the start of our mass unity
Human natures winning answer, a true reflection of what is you and me

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."

Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

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.
