I'm dead inside but still alive
My soul it bleeds internally
Thirsting for a sip of your smile
A year ago like yesterday
Lord you know how hard I prayed
To make you stay here for awhile

*Life was better with you here
I know it will take some time to fully heal
before we say Goodbye

Unwanted change is moving on
Still holding on to everything
Just to be your thoughts for awhile
A year ago like yesterday
Lord you know I'd give up anything
Just to have you here once again

Even when I lied you were mine

    I love this song. i heard it from The Crow: Stairway To Heaven and haven't stopped listening to it yet. Oh. and BTW after it says "Even when I lied you were mine" It should say "Even when you died, you were mine"

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
