    love I get so lost, sometimes days pass

    and this emptiness fills my heart when I want to run away I drive off in my car but whichever way I go I come back to the place you are all my instincts, they return and the grand facade, so soon will burn without a noise, without my pride I reach out from the inside in your...

    Not like the stupid things I hear others play

    in school, it's all so generic and inappropriate. I'm not attacking all of modern music, some small portion of it is actually meaningful. But I really prefer songs that don't go out of their way to showcase that talent is being replaced with attractive people who really can't...

    Does anyone know what the song "Riptide" is

    actually about? It sounds like random words put together in a song to me. And everyone wonders why I hate pop music.

    Actually, I have always appreciated songs with

    great lyrics, but I'm also one of those people who can listen to a song and feel a connection to it but then hear the lyrics and either think: "This doesn't make sense!" or "What the hell am I listening to?!" Weird, right? Not much actually. I have learned that people who...

    meaning. Maybe that kind of song can reach far more people.

    So many songs are written on a production line,

    aimed at nothing more than selling units... And then again, an average song can be made great by a great singer - if you don't believe me, try to find Paul Dempsey's version of "Wrecking Ball"

    Glory Of Love-Peter Cetera

      It may sound crazy, but when I hear this song, i think about one man, Jesus Christ. He has been the only man that has never hurt me, disappointed me or made me cry. Eros is fine, but Agape, the God kind of love, is the ultimate love. Greater love has no man than to give his...

    This Song Speaks to Me Especially Now

    This song says to me that although you are in a hole right now there is something more out there for you if you just keep walking further.  Many times I wouldn't go further if I didn't believe that in my heart. This is a song by Switchfoot called, "Meant to Live."...
