My friends could say
that this was fun
while sickly I'm staring out a window
I can see this other than chasing
something that I
always wanted you to know
all of this will have to end someday
the time will come when nobody's leaving
shut your eyes with me
again and again
and think about just what you believe in

I think I understand these thoughts
(I'm thinking everything's a feeling)
Lay in bed all day just to be with you
talk all night while staring at a ceiling
came up with this off of a notion
still can't sleep cause of all the stupid motion
want you with me
so you can see this
say it again and know that I mean it

I won't give up on you
You know that's what I'm sayin'
Tell me you know its true
Thank you for always stayin'
Please say you're near
not far but near
When I'm away
Be back one day

My friends still say
that this is fun
and I sit here staring out a window
I can say now
this is worth the call
in the morning
to tell you something you should know
Don't need a break when its all done
Doing something that I always dreamed of
I can say for sure that everything
when your screaming out....to up above

I won't give up on you
You know that's what I'm sayin'
Tell me you know its true
Thank you for always stayin'
I won't give up on you
(I won't give up)
Please say you're always stayin'

Thanx For Stayin' song meanings

    he fell in love with her although everyone thought it was only fun. Even thought he never said how he felt towards her, she still waited around to hear it and he was thankful that she stayed for him to say it.

    I love this song. It reminds me of one of my best friends, who's come back whenever I shut them out of my life intentionally & has always been there when I need it.

    this song is about how this guy really likes this girl, and he knows that she likes him, but its hard for him to express his feelings.. so hes just happy that she still liked him when he finally told her

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"

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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."

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.
