I'll always have that weak spot
And you'll always hit me there,
And I know, I know,
I know you'll use it against me...

Why do you wanna ruin what I got?
'Cause you've never done anything...

So let's trip over that speedbump
Just so that we can say we did it.
I know we'll quit then...

Why do you wanna ruin what I got?
'Cause you've never done anything...

Stop the bus!

    Fan conjours up images of thousands of screaming girls at a boy band concert. Please never use the word fan in conjunction with punk music.

    this song's about a friend that knew you better than anyone else. while other people were in different seats in the bus of life, this friend sat by you all the time. he knew what would hurt you the most, your weak spot, and when you fight, he uses that knowledge against you. you can't understand why he's fighting with you, maybe becuz he's jealous? so you tell him to say your friendship's over just so it can be heard and then there'll be no more fighting. you want to stop the bus and get off.

    I think this song is about a girl that he used to go out with or something and he still has feelings for her but they broke up but when he is finally getting over her and getting with other chicks he see's her and she starts flirting or something and it brings all those feelings back and messed up his other relationships. When he says stop the bus i think he just means like I wanna get off of you....get over you and lets be done

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.
