Taylor Swift ft. Gary Lightbody – The Last Time

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , , , at 2:34 pm by LynxLee

I’ve been through quite a roller coaster. A lot of day and a lot of night. The idea of almost leaving for a trip, but stopped by authorities telling you that you’re not eligible enough and can’t qualify.

What I almost hate the most is how you said one sentence and every word gets twisted and designed to make you (the one answering) to be confused and self doubting. I hate especially when I feel so badly that I’m innocent and that I’m just simply another fellow wanting to follow the rules, law and instructions properly.

I’ve always been the type to just let it go, I’ve always been the type to just let it pass – sometimes we need to sit afar and take the view from a distance to understand the simplest things. That there’s always flaw in most of the changes we choose and that we can do better.

Perhaps it’s the last time, perhaps it’s not – but this will be the last time I’m asking you this.

[Gary Lightbody:]
Found myself at your door,
Just like all those times before,
I’m not sure how I got there,
All roads they lead me here.

I imagine you are home,
In your room, all alone,
And you open your eyes into mine,
And everything feels better,

[Both:]
Right before your eyes,
I’m breaking, no past
No reasons why,
Just you and me.

This is the last time I’m asking you this,
Put my name at the top of your list,
This is the last time I’m asking you why,
You break my heart in the blink of an eye, eye, eye.

[Taylor Swift:]
You find yourself at my door,
Just like all those times before,
You wear your best apology,
But I was there to watch you leave,

And all the times I let you in,
Just for you to go again,
Disappear when you come back,
Everything is better.

[Both:]
Right before your eyes,
I’m aching, no past
Nowhere to hide,
Just you and me…

This is the last time I’m asking you this,
Put my name at the top of your list,
This is the last time I’m asking you why,
You break my heart in the blink of an eye, eye, eye…

[Taylor Swift:] This is the last time you tell me I’ve got it wrong,
[Gary Lightbody:] This is the last time I say it’s been you all along,
[Taylor Swift:] This is the last time I let you in my door,
[Gary Lightbody:] This is the last time, I won’t hurt you anymore.

Oh, oh, oh,

This is the last time I’m asking you this,
Put my name at the top of your list,
This is the last time I’m asking you why,
You break my heart in the blink of an eye.

This is the last time I’m asking you this (this is the last time I’m asking you this)
Put my name at the top of your list (put my name on the top of your list)
This is the last time I’m asking you why (this is the last time I’m asking you why)
You break my heart in the blink of an eye (You break my heart…)

[x4:]
This is the last time I’m asking you,
Last time I’m asking you,
Last time I’m asking you this…

Passenger – Let Her Go

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 1:30 pm by LynxLee

FAIL. I learn through failure as a child, and I think I still do as an adult. I never wanted to fail, I never wanted to give up – but I do it anyway. Eventually we learn that we learn most about ourselves and whatever it is we failed upon when we actually fail.

This track expresses the same sentiment that you would only know if you love her, when you let her go. You’ll know what matters to you after you lose it. Here’s an experiment, don’t “lose it” – imagine yourself losing whatever it is you want or have.

If you can imagine good enough, you would know right away what you want or need.

Let-Her-Go-PassengerOnly know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you’ll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you’ll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies

But you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you’ll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you’ll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies

But you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
‘Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast

Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
‘Cause you loved her too much
And you dived too deep

Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go (oh, oh, ooh, oh no)
And you let her go (oh, oh, ooh, oh no)
Will you let her go?

‘Cause you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go

‘Cause you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go
