Are you ready maybe
Are you willing to run
Are you ready to let yourself drown
Are you holding your breath
Are you ready or not

Are you ready maybe
Do you long to confess
Do you feel that you're already numb
Are you sure of yourself
Would you lie if you're not

You tire me out
Don't wanna let that happen
A secret scream so loud
Why did you let that happen

Ooh, ooh so put your arms around me
You let me believe that you are someone else
Ooh, ooh cause only time can take you
So let me believe
That I am someone else

Maybe, are you ready to break
Do you think that I push you too far
Would you open yourself
Are you reckless or not

You tire me out
Don't wanna let that happen
A secret scream so loud
Why did you let that happen

Ooh, ooh so put your arms around me
You let me believe that you are someone else
Ooh, ooh cause only time can take you
So let me believe
That I am someone else
That I am someone else

Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na

Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na

Sha na na na na

Ooh, ooh so put your arms around me
Ooh, ooh so put your arms around me

Make me believe
Take me take me
Somewhere
Somewhere
Let me believe
Cause only time can take you
So stop

    Make me believe you're someone else, make me believe you love me. Make me believe that you're worth the hassle. Time will tell.

    This is one of the few Texas songs that I like, but I absolutely love it.

    I heard it recently for the first time in a long while, and properly listened to the lyrics.

    It spoke to me because if I could write down a certain situation I am in, this is what it would read like.

    I have an ex who has a few commitment and relationship issues. I know as well as he does that we are both in love, but he can't handle it.

    I want to help him handle it. At the moment he is scared and panics as soon as he feels anything remotely like an emotion, (not his fault) so if I could sing this to him I would.

    Too bad this isn't more well known. Beautiful, and sad, but so beautiful.

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.

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,

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

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.
