In a world of despair, our lives will end. Some without warning, while others die by design. Under watchful eyes, we tread on evil ground, with jaded eyes around us each step is scrutinized. [in the pouring rain, we speed this car, i try so hard, wish i was more prepared for this time, you shouldn't have passed before me] In this life we lead, a choice will be made. Where we go from here, when our time is done. At the gates of heaven, angels stare at you. May they lead you home to where you;ll live in peace? You take without warning. [i'll shut myself up and black out the windows] As we sit and wait. [its best to consider me dead as well] Breath in take a life. [i'm hoping in time i'll get over] Breath out, cleanse your soul. [i might be fine when i get older... no way] You took her life. I gave you mine, to ease the pain of my soul, to show you how much shes meant to me. I will fight for our lives and take them to our graves. In a world of despair, our lives will end. Some with out warning, while others die by design. Under watchful eyes we tread on evil ground, with jaded eyes around us, each step is scrutinized. I will defy you. The evil from above. Open my mind. Let you in. I will not forgive the sins you made. You took her life from me.

    This Is such an amazing song. To me Its about how fragile life is and how it can end at any moment. He lost someone close to him and is grieving over it. "You took her life. I gave you mine, to ease the pain of my soul, to show you how much shes meant to me" to me thats about suicide. This is just such an awesome song by a great band.

    This song almost brought me to friggin' tears when I realized what the lyrics were about. I don't know if this was a true experience but if it isn't whoever wrote this song was really good at describing some one else's feelings.

    The Becky thinks From Autumn To Ashes is the best at writing songs, and preforming. They are on the Warped Tour this year.

    They actually sound absolutely nothing like Thursday. If I was forced to compare them to a band, I'd say they are basically Red Roses For A Blue Lady if they were soaking in a jar of emo for a week. Not that that's really a bad thing. Just don't expect easy listening based on the lyrics alone.

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.

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"

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
