Well the band comes on
And everyone starts screaming
And the first note is played
What a wonderful feeling
The party people they've been drinking
The party people they've been jumping
The party people they start skanking

Arms and legs everywhere
Pretty ladies in the pit, wanna stare
Punch someone in the face
They don't seem to care

It seems like a sunshine happy day
No trouble's gonna come my way
Yeah it's all cool but it's getting boring
So someone said a dirty word
And the people, they started fighting
Whenever I, whenever I need the strength to fight
I think of Foley

I've got spikes in my kidneys and fists in my back
Should get out of the way before my other eye turns black
Battered and bruised I'm on the stage
Big fat security guard heading my way
I'm screwed either way but all my life I've been proud
I'm gonna die in style, I'll go surfing the crowd

Blood and guts everywhere
I'm trapped in the pit, life's not fair
Punch someone in the face
Now they seem to care

I feel worse than a dog about to be castrated
Why do I get the feeling in a few days I'll be cremated?
I'm peeing my pants

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Just listening for the 784,654th time....and it's just perfect in every way. Just incredible. The only reason it was remade was to scoop up a boatload of money from a more modern and accepting audience. But it is a completely different song than the other one that sounds slapped together in a few takes without a thought for the meaning. This song captivates me still, after 50+ years. Takes me to the deep South and the poverty of some who lived thru truly hard times. And the powerful spirit of a poor young girl being abandoned to her future with only a red dress and her wits to keep her alive. She not only stayed alive, she turned her hard beginnings around, became self sufficient, successful and someone with respect for herself. She didn't let the naysayers and judgers stop her. She's the one sitting in the drivers seat at the end. So, not a song about a poor girl, but a song of hope and how you can rise up no matter how far down you started. There is a huge difference between a singer who simply belts out a song that is on a page in front of them, and someone who can convey an entire experience with their voice. Telling not just a story with words, but taking you inside it and making you feel like you are there, with their interpretation.

The Last Dance
Within Temptation
@Kahiara Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.
