This is such a brilliant song, and it's how I came to love taylor swift, I heard this and then went and listened to more. I think it's powerful because of the mentions of romeo and juliet, because of that being the 'greatest' and most well known love story around. I've heard it criticised for that same reason though because romeo and juliet didn't have a happy ending - they both died - but I think it was clever to use them, sort of showing that if you try hard enough you can be romeo and juliet (i. E madly in love but with people who matter to you being directly against it) and still make it work out for the best.

I think that made me love this song is that it's different, most tragic love songs say 'i hope you're not feeling this way' sort of thing because they don't want the person who their hurting for to be hurting whereas this one says the opposite. This one does want them feeling the hurt because if they're hurting and regretting and hating being apart maybe they could get back together. I love how it has an element of hope but the main focus is that it's unlikely.

This song's beautiful and explains so perfectly the coming-home feeling when you've been away. I'm not from manchester but I feel like if the word mancunian was changed to my city then nothing else would have to be changed. Because this is exactly how it is, and it doesn't necessarily have to be a city itself, it could be just finding home, and safety after trouble. I love that about take that especially because there's always different interpretations.

I love this song because of the debates it causes on it's meaning. 'i love you' is the obvious and the one that everything thinks the 'eight letters, three words, one meaning' is saying, and I agree because it probably was written with that in mind. But I love that it could also mean 'i am sorry' which also fits the 8 letters, 3 words, 1 meaning. And the other lyrics of the song. Either way - or both ways - the song is amazingly powerful and beautiful mixed perfectly with being sad.

I love this song so much, the repetition is so powerful, it reinforces the message of the song so well. I love how the song is so simple and so repititious in saying that the ex/friend (because I think it can be about a relationship or a friendship) says one thing at one time and another at another. But then it gets reallly emotive with "I wish that i could trust you once again/I wish that I could count you as a friend/Hit me with the truth, come on it's me/I need some honesty". Those four lines are so powerful it makes the song so much more pwoerful.

This song is so powerful and so relatable I think. Although that could be because I've been in the situation literally, with the picture in a box of important things. It's so simple but so powerfully done. It's simple about giving the appearance that you've moved on, but really hidden, in a secret place where no one knows about, he's still there because you can't let him go. It's also about when you look at the photo and all the memories and happiness and pain come back because of that. So powerful, so sad.

This is such a beautiful song, it's so powerful and as the people below me said the questions are timeless. As is the message. I think the fact that the song is made up with a load of questions with no truth answer is what makes it so powerful because it's so thought provoking, it makes people stop and have to think about the answer. The fact that he only says 'the answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind' shows that no answer has yet been found but it is out there somewhere. It's a brilliantly effective way to highlight the injustices in the world.

I agree that this song is about depression. I thought that the first time I heard it, before I knew Skillet are a Christian band. And now I do know it, I still wouldn't give it a Christian reading because I don't think it has one. I can see why other people think it does, I just disagree. It's such an emotive and powerful song, however you read it. A friend of mine and I were discussing this song the other day and how we think it's like he's screaming silently. Like when you reach the level of darkness and desperation that you can't actually ask for help or for someoen to listen to you but in your head you're still screaming for those things.

I really think this song is quite harsh. Don't get me wrong, I love the song, I really do, it's so catchy and I sing along to it loads. And I can udnerstand why she would want to be telling her ex that she's completely over him and moved on, but the reason I think it'#s quite harsh it that it's quite insulting to her new boyfriend, 'you just like my ex but nicer\'.

I know there's a high chance that when Nickelback wrote this they meant 'far away' to be literal, but I always took it to mean that they were metaphorically far away. Like they were actually near by but they were out of reach. I was listening to this song once and subconsciously started to sing along at 'i love you, I loved you all along' and it was that made me realise that I wasn't confused about my ex I knew exactly how I felt. It all went wrong again but I'm not letting him ruin any songs for me. This is still a beautiful song. I think 'I'm give it all, I'd give for us, give anything but I won't give up' are really powerful, beautiful emotive lyrics: D

For me this is a song about a change in life. Maybe leaving high school and going to university or college or something. And I think the lyrics back that up. It's such a beautiful song because it shows how great it's been and has hope for the future but I think there's a level of fear in it 'i said remember this feeling' like she's worried they'll forget what they had when they grow apart. 'And you take a moment/Promise me this:/That you'll stand by me forever/But if God forbid fate should step in/And force us into a goodbye/If you have children someday/When they point to the pictures/Please tell them my name' That is one of the music heartbreaking verses I've ever heard. It reminds me of so many of my friends, one in particular is at uni a year before me and we've grown apart so much since she moved and I wish I could say that to her.

This song's really sad I think. It's so emotive and relatable. It's about the end of a relationship but not falling out of love. Whether or not she ended the relationship is debatable, because either way this song works. I reckon though that it's that she ended it because she knows he's never going to be good for her but she's still in love and while she'll never get back with him she doesn't know how to get over him. She msises him. Man I can relate to this damn brilliant song.

It's so beautiful, I never thought about the actual meaning of it before, but now I have I appreciate the song so much more. It's so sweet. It's about loving someone so much that they mean the whole world to you. I also thing it's about the person not loving you back because of 'my skies are turning black'. It makes me think of Romeo and Juliet 'It is the east and Juliet is the sun' like their skies are turning black because their sun - the person they love - doesn't want them. I think the whole running theme of the end of the world is showing how important the relationship/person was/is to them because their world is ending without them. It's so bloody sweet.

This song is so perfect about the ending of a relationship, it gets the perfect mix of pain/upset with anger. The writer/singer is obviously cut up about it but also angry at the ex and seemingly with good reason. 'i never wish for anyone to feel the way I do' is so powerful for me, there's often no words for emotion but something like that says it so well.

How powerful is the beginning of this song? It's amazing, the soft, sad tune they sing to it fits the beautiful lyrics so perfectly. 'The truth turned out to be a lie' That is so amazing, and it can fit so many situations. And I think that goes for this song as a whole, there's so many ways to take it. 'This is the end but baby don't you cry' there's something heartbreaking about that I think. Beautiful, haunting and heartbreaking. I love the way trhis song starts off soft and gentle and steadily gets to the chorus whcih si so much louder. It gives me the feeling that it's a really important message whcih needs the car and attention of the softer bit but if so important to them that they want to scream about it.

This is such an obvious call out to haters, but I think it goes beyond Mcfly haters to life in general. 'we all look the same in the dark' I always took to be saying that it is stupid and ignorant to treat anyone different to anyone else because of hwo they look or whatever because we'er all the same when it comes down to it. The title and main part of the course I think, which is in agreement to most people commenting here, is saying that they're just another band on the radio, it's not fair to judge them because of it. I know it's totally unrelated but 'To all of the liars who dream and conspire agaisnt the admired we hope you drop dead' always makes me thing of the git who killed John Lennon. Bringing it back to the actual song and related stuff, I think it shows how much of a vicious circle hate is. You hate people, people hate you, you hate them, they hate you, and it just keeps going round. The first line I love so much, 'Life isn't fair for the people who care' it shows how messed up society is. Getting someone is rarely about being a caring good person. Good, caring people are often the ones let down and used. 'la temptation or music sensations/There's great expectations' I think the temptation/sensation internal rhyme is showing that there's so many ways to go in life, and one doesn't have to override the other. There's the temptation of an exstravagent la lifestyle, and there's music sensations and they're very different - stereotypically - but however you live 'there's great expectations\'.
