Try to forget about
Living the good life
Free of positions
That make her feel vulnerable
She's loved and she's lost
She's bearing the cost
She seeks to find the answer for

Woke up today around
Six in the morning
Violently shaking
Remembering what she once saw
She bared it alone
Still she carried on
She seeks to find the answers for

The reason her life did not turn out
More like a movie
She's trying to forget it all

She tries to erase
She tries to replace
How it feels but I
Know she can never go home

I don't believe in anything
But I believe in you
I never trusted anyone
But somehow I trust you

And if I fall away
Someday you might find me
If I fall away

    gabe lives a town over from me- he used to be pretty good friends with my best friends brother. we always see him around which rocks cuz they rock. this song was actually on the radio the other day- i know a lot of people get scared of mainstream and all, but its the same music as it was before things got big- gotta love midtown.

    Off their April release "Living Well Is The Best Revenge"... not 100% sure of the lyrics, but it's pretty damn close.

    This song means a lot to me and I can fully relate to it. It's about a girl, obviously, who is wondering why her life wasn't more like a movie. Dur. She's tried to make it so and "erase" her past to make her life more movie-like but she can't forget it. But she can't ever go back to the way that it used to be. I can totally relate... why can't life be like a movie? When it says, "She's loved and she's lost," I can relate... i know that i'm loved. BUt i'm lost and i don't know where to go. That's at leaset what the song means to me.

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
