I hate the way you look at me
A hidden truth you cannot see
We love each other
We need each other
Can't reach each other
Somethings in the way
I knew when I first saw you that you were the one
I knew that when you left me, everything was done

I can't
Get outta this nightmare, it consumes me
I can't
Understand what you say, your words just confuse me
I'll try
To find a way to make this work
I'll try
To make you forget me, I'm just a jerk

I know you care about me
But there's someone else
And I hope we both agree
I'm a disappointment to myself
Hiding in my shell
No way to break through
Living out this hell
Your going through this too
Then I find you and I come to realize
That we weren't meant to be
I can tell by the look in your eyes
These thoughts run through my brain
I'm left out in the rain
And I can feel the pain
It's driving me insane

I can't
Get outta this nightmare, it consumes me
I can't
Understand what you say, your words just confuse me
I'll try
To find a way to make this work
I'll try
To make you forget me, I'm just a jerk

I can't
Forget you, I need you to be near
You can't
Forget me, thats my greatest fear
I'll try
To cope with, what I'm going through
I'll try
As best as I can to give my life to you

Why won't these rain clouds just disappear
Dry out my eyes, let me see clear
I just want to be with you
I just want to be with you
I just want to be with you
But it seems as if we're through

    i really especially like the 1st verse, and i like the chorus as well.

    "I know you care about me But there's someone else And I hope we both agree I'm a disappointment to myself"

    has a really nice ring to it.

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.

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.

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."
