Used to think we'd get to where we've been
Now we stand here just rememberin'
Times I wake up we knew where we've been
Now we sit here rememberin'

Used to think we could do anything
Now I sit here just remembering
Sometimes we thought we knew everything
Now I sit here

I don't think you ever thought about how much I really care
You just live/or/float though your life with your head up in the air
Don't you bother trying to run away
It's all bound to catch up with you some day
If you think you'll never go it's time to go away


See if we can turn this around, maybe some other way
(Turn this around)
Take this to a higher ground, maybe some other day
(Turn this around)
Maybe you're afraid to see, baby you're enough for me
(Turn this around)
Maybe you're afraid to try, you always sit there asking why

What's the warning all is fair
Do you think it might end some day
Look around you're not smilin'
All I see are just tears a cryin'



Crawl through the dark to look into the light
You can't hide from your shadow so take a look at it right
Don't you bother tryin' to run away if you can't stand through
the rain
You can't find any fun if you can't get through the pain

If you really noticed how much I really care
You just floated through your life-head up in the air
You won't have any fun
If you make me feel the pain
You can't be happy playing in the sun if you ______ fear the rain

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.

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."

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
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
