The not so pretty princess was the clown of the class.
She made funny faces so the kids would let her pass.

There was danger of dying at every turn.
¡°don't get caught crying¡± was all that she learned.

And the not so pretty princess was the queen inside her room
And the world was in her closet while she dressed for her groom.

There were angels above her and furs on the floor.
Nobody loved her outside of the door.

And she's so pretty cause she will never be...
She's so pretty to me, to me, to me.
It doesn't matter what everybody sees.

She's so pretty to me.
She's so, so pretty.
She's so, so pretty.

The not so pretty princess met a doctor with a knife.
And he said there was a lot of ways that he could change her life.

And with the nose of a reindeer, the skin of a plum.
But now she'll be lovely, forever look dumb.

And she's so pretty cause she will never be...
She's so pretty to me, to me, to me.
I try to tell her but she just won't believe.

She's so pretty to me.
She's so, so pretty.
She's so...

If she could only see angels above her and fears on the floor.
And she needs to discover she wants more and more and more.

The not so pretty princess was the clown of the class.
She made funny faces when they wouldn't let her pass.

There was danger of dying at every turn.
¡°don't get caught crying¡± was all that she learned.

And she's so pretty cause she will never be...
She's so pretty to me, to me, to me.
It doesn't matter what everybody sees.

She's so lovely when she comes to me.

And she's so pretty cause she will never be...
She's so pretty to me, to me, to me.
I try to tell her but she just won't believe.

She's so pretty to me.
She's so lovely.
She's so pretty to me.
She's so lovely.

The not so pretty princess she will never be...
The not so pretty princess.

So pretty. she's so...
The not so pretty princess, she's so pretty to me.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
