I listen to my stereo
I play a song and I think about the girl
I'm sure she's really not in love
She's probably just another pretty fake

But she'll always be my favourite mistake
Try to write the perfect line
But everything I write is typical
I won't impress her with this song

He's probably over my and on the make
But she'll always be my favourite mistake
I'll write another letter and I'll sign it "Always True"
And I'll be dumb enough to write I still love you

So here's to what you're looking for
I'll get out of your way
And here's my favourite picture of my favourite mistake
I stayed in bed 'til three o'clock

Today I think I want to be alone
I'm sure she's not that sad at all
She's got a million other hearts to break
But she'll always be my favourite mistake

    everyone should hear their stuff from 'a real-life story of teenage rebellion'.. it's old, but good.

    Sometimes people don't say how they feel cause it hurts too much. Spilling their guts won't do any good or change anything. A form of self preservation kicks in and you can go into a sort of mental shutdown. Read between the lines. Some people say they care and really don't, others DO and dont' know how to get the message through.

    Love can be shown in so many different ways and it can vary from perosn to person. In my opinion, if you truly love someone, then set them free. As long as they're happy I'm happy. Not always the easy thing to do though... :o(

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.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

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.
