This can't be home, anymore [Repeat: x1]

If you, think I
Have not been missing
The way she breathes
You are mistaken, my friend
I've fallen down
So put your mouth on
My bloody knees

One night with me and
I've broken your trust
I'd hate to be the bond
You know is gonna bust
(know is gonna bust)
Hurting lungs breathing
Sighs of disgust

This can't be home, anymore [Repeat: x1]

Now cold concrete
Blank walls are staring
Into your lonely eyes
I duck behind them
And hope that you won't go
And ask for answers to
Why I made you cry

I never wanted us to fade out
Resting on a love that fell apart
Where are you?
I need you
You still have, still have my heart

I never wanted us to fade out (fade out)
Resting on a love that fell apart (torn apart)
Where are you?
I need you
You still have, still have my heart

One night with me and
I've broken your trust
I'd hate to be the bond
You know is gonna bust
(know is gonna bust)
Hurting lungs breathing
Sighs of disgust

This can't be home, anymore [Repeat: x1]

Open up my heart [Repeat: x3]

    This song is incredible. I love it- every aspect of it, the drums, the guitars, the vocals, the arrangement. It's perfect.

    This song is good, I am more partial to cigarette though, and rough draft. They are so good live. They play this song so well.

    Time Will Tell and Lesson Learned are also good, older Yellowcard. And For the Longest Time is funny because it's a Billy Joel cover.

Album art
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.
Album art
Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.
Album art
When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
