Here we are
Only been a couple of years, maybe longer
Yes, it's true
I'm no good at being the strong man, you're stronger
But I think, maybe you should take a good look at my feelings
Can't you see
I'm another one just like you, a human being

I don't want to have to sacrifice to have to get along (I don't want to sacrifice)
I don't ever want to be the one to say I'm wrong
I may hate you sometimes (I may hate you sometimes)
But I'll always love you

What did you say
It's so hard for me to remember what you meant
How did it happen
Was it preconcieved or a complete accident
I still recall
We were once happy together, smiling faces
Things have changed
And now you're only happy when I remember where my place is

I don't want to have to live up to your expectations (What do you expect?)
I don't ever want to be the one to end relations (I don't want to end)
I may hate you sometimes
But I'll always love you

Do you think you could treat me
Like somebody special?
I can't be everything to everybody
Could I at least be something to you?

Don't look so surprised
I'm a little smarter than every other weakling
Say no more
I know exactly what you're going to say without you speaking
A familiar phrase
I've heard it said often before, "please forgive me"
Don't be a fool
If I can't live with myself how could you live with me?

Now that I'm filled with emotion you're dispassionate
You only live for yourself while I live to regret
But don't ever think that I could easily forget
Because I'm damned if I do, and I'm damned if I don't
I said that I would but now I know that I won't
And the chance of being right is looking kind of remote

I may hate you sometimes (I may hate you sometimes)
I may hate you sometimes (I may hate you sometimes)
I may hate you sometimes (I may hate you sometimes)
But I'll always love you

I may hate you sometimes
But I'll always love you

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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"
