    Never mind, I'll find someone like you
    I wish nothing but the best for you too
    Don't forget me, I beg
    I'll remember you said,
    "Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
    Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead"

    You know how the time flies
    Only yesterday was the time of our lives
    We were born and raised In a summer haze
    Bound by the surprise of our glory days

    This was the performance that completely changed the trajectory of her career and life forever. She completely blew up overnight and this song's popularity just flew through the stratosphere. I remember it so vividly, literally everyone at school/work was talking about this performance and singing the song. Then every talent show performer, every busker on the street, it just got bigger and bigger. Such a special moment in music history. Adele should feel so proud of this song!

    - One woman, a microphone and a piano and it’s absolutely incredible. 
    - Her voice is like rocks in a river, strong, fixed, eternal. And the piano is the river flowing gently over the rocks. Flawless.

    He left no time to regret
    Kept his dick wet with his same old safe bet
    Me and my head high
    And my tears dry, get on without my guy
    You went back to what you knew
    So far removed from all that we went through
    And I tread a troubled track
    My odds are stacked, I'll go back to black

    [Chorus]
    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred times
    You go back to her and I go back to
    I go back to us

    [Verse 2]
    I love you much, it's not enough
    You love blow and I love puff
    And life is like a pipe
    And I'm a tiny penny rollin' up the walls inside

    [Chorus]
    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred times
    You go back to her and I go back to
    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred times
    You go back to her and I go back to 

    Review comments: 
    - My mother loved this song, and she love'd Amy with all her heart, she cried many tears when she died. Today my mother died, and I'm coming back to this song crying many tears myself... I'm devastated and lost of words... 
    - No one will ever replace her, her voice is beautiful....

    Lyrics: 
    It's been seven hours and fifteen days
    Since you took your love away
    I go out every night and sleep all day
    Since you took your love away
    Since you been gone, I can do whatever I want
    I can see whomever I choose
    I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
    But nothing
    I said nothing can take away these blues

    'Cause nothing compares
    Nothing compares to you

    It's been so lonely without you here
    Like a bird without a song
    Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
    Tell me baby, where did I go wrong?
    I could put my arms around every boy I see
    But they'd only remind me of you
    I went to the doctor, guess what he told me
    Guess what he told me
    He said, "Girl you better try to have fun, no matter what you do"
    But he's a fool

    'Cause nothing compares,
    nothing compares to you

    All the flowers that you planted mama
    In the back yard
    All died when you went away
    I know that living with you baby was sometimes hard
    But I'm willing to give it another try

    Nothing compares
    Nothing compares to you
    Nothing compares
    Nothing compares to you
    Nothing compares
    Nothing compares to you

    Review comment:
    - Rest in peace Sinead
    - I saw her in concert with my wife , about 35 years ago.  We were both big fans. My wife passed away about 10 years ago. RIP Sinead and RIP my wife... 
    - The fact that she remains the only artist to refuse a Grammy award til date is honestly empowering. She stated that music was supposed to help people and not to draw attention to the artist. One thing’s for sure, her music sure did help me. Fly high sweet Sinead! Know that you have touched many souls here in Fiji

    [Verse 1]
    The world was on fire, and no one could save me but you
    It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
    I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
    And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

    [Chorus]
    No, I don't wanna fall in love (This world is only gonna break your heart)
    No, I don't wanna fall in love (This world is only gonna break your heart)
    With you (With you)
    (This world is only gonna break your heart)

    [Verse 2]
    What a wicked game to play
    To make me feel this way
    What a wicked thing to do
    To let me dream of you
    What a wicked thing to say
    You never felt this way
    What a wicked thing to do
    To make me dream of you

    [Chorus]
    And I don't wanna fall in love (This world is only gonna break your heart)

    With you

    Lyrics

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I get a little bit lonely
    And you're never coming round

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I get a little bit tired
    Of listening to the sound of my tears

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I get a little bit nervous
    That the best of all the years have gone by

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
    And then I see the look in your eyes

    (Turn around, bright eyes)
    Every now and then I fall apart
    (Turn around, bright eyes)
    Every now and then
    I fall apart

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I get a little bit restless
    And I dream of something wild

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I get a little bit helpless
    And I'm lying like a child in your arms

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I get a little bit angry
    And I know I've got to get out and cry

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I get a little bit terrified
    But then I see the look in your eyes

    (Turn around, bright eyes)
    Every now and then
    I fall apart
    Turn around, bright eyes
    Every now and then
    I fall apart

    And I need you now tonight
    And I need you more than ever
    And if you only hold me tight
    We'll be holding on forever
    And we'll only be making it right
    'Cause we'll never be wrong

    Together we can take it to the end of the line
    Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time)

    I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
    We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

    I really need you tonight
    Forever's gonna start tonight
    (Forever's gonna start tonight)

    Once upon a time I was falling in love
    But now I'm only falling apart
    There's nothing I can do
    A total eclipse of the heart

    Once upon a time there was light in my life
    But now there's only love in the dark
    Nothing I can say
    A total eclipse of the heart

    (Turn around, bright eyes)
    (Turn around, bright eyes)

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I know you'll never be the boy
    You always wanted to be

    (Turn around)
    But every now and then
    I know you'll always be the only boy
    Who wanted me the way that I am

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I know there's no one in the universe
    As magical and wondrous as you

    (Turn around)
    Every now and then
    I know there's nothing any better
    There's nothing that I just wouldn't do

    (Turn around, bright eyes)
    Every now and then I fall apart
    (Turn around, bright eyes)
    Every now and then I fall apart

    And I need you now tonight
    And I need you more than ever
    And if you only hold me tight
    We'll be holding on forever
    And we'll only be making it right
    'Cause we'll never be wrong

    Together we can take it to the end of the line
    Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time)

    I don't know what to do
    I'm always in the dark
    Living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

    I really need you tonight
    Forever's gonna start tonight
    (Forever's gonna start tonight)

    Once upon a time I was falling in love
    But now I'm only falling apart
    There's nothing I can do
    A total eclipse of the heart

    Once upon a time there was light in my life
    But now there's only love in the dark
    Nothing I can say
    A total eclipse of the heart

    A total eclipse of the heart
    A total eclipse of the heart

    (Turn around, bright eyes)
    (Turn around, bright eyes)
    (Turn around)

    [Verse 1]
    When you were here before
    Couldn't look you in the eye
    You're just like an angel
    Your skin makes me cry
    You float like a feather
    In a beautiful world

    [Pre-Chorus]
    I wish I was special
    You're so fuckin' special

    [Chorus]
    But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo

    I don't belong here

    [Verse 2]
    I don't care if it hurts
    I wanna have control
    I want a perfect body
    I want a perfect soul
    I want you to notice
    When I'm not around

    Review comment: 
    - Some songs will never die in the hearts of those who heard them. This is one of them 
    - This song is a masterpiece. So honest, authentic, really captures the emotions of feeling like a social misfit. 
    - This is not a song, this is masterpiece 
    - This song truly is a masterpiece. Self- loathing, love for your person, depression. Thank you Radiohead. 
    - The lyrics in the song are probably some of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. I'm not a radio head fan. But this is a top tier song that can never be paralleled.

    Lyrics:
    Un-break my heart
    Say you'll love me again
    Undo this hurt you caused
    When you walked out the door
    And walked out of my life
    Un-cry these tears
    I cried so many nights
    Un-break my heart
    My heart 

    Review comment: 
    - The song is 20 years old yet still more beautiful & genuine than ever. 
    - I remember being a child and hearing my mom blast this song full volume on the sound system. Only now as a adult I understand she was remembering the times she had with my dad. What an amazing but heartbreaking song 
    - I was a 7 year old girl who lost her brother to suicide and when it got dark, i turned on my cassette player and duck into my pillow, literally cried myself to sleep. Night after night. This song changed my life. I didn’t know how to out my emotions till this song crossed my path and this song learned me at a very young age that your soul can heal or break just by listening to the right song. That even when people around u have no clue what you are going through, music will fill up that void, even if it is with sadness
    - This song will never get old 2023 and I'm still loving this song

    I am not the only traveler
    Who has not repaid his debt
    I've been searching for a trail to follow again
    Take me back to the night we met

    And then I can tell myself
    What the hell I'm supposed to do
    And then I can tell myself
    Not to ride along with you

    I had all and then most of you
    Some and now none of you
    Take me back to the night we met
    I don't know what I'm supposed to do
    Haunted by the ghost of you
    Oh, take me back to the night we met

    When the night was full of terrors
    And your eyes were filled with tears
    When you had not touched me yet
    Oh, take me back to the night we met

    I had all and then most of you
    Some and now none of you
    Take me back to the night we met
    I don't know what I'm supposed to do
    Haunted by the ghost of you
    Take me back to the night we met

    Review comment: 
    - I'm leaving this comment so that whenever someone like it i will come here back and listen to this master piece again
    - "Not friends, not enemies, just strangers with memories." 
    - It’s so crazy how music can make you feel so much emotions . 
    - 2 months before the end of 2023 and I still have tears in my eyes when I listen to this song 
    - Just two months ago, my fiance and i are singing along to this song on Spotify together as we drove late at night on our way to church while he drives. Two months later, I listen to this song alone as I drive late at night mourning over his passing, on ny way to the cemetery where his grave is.

    Lyrics

    I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to save me
    This all or nothing really got a way of driving me crazy

    I need somebody to heal
    somebody to know
    somebody to have
    somebody to hold
    It’s easy to say
    but it’s never the same
    I guess I kinda liked the way you numbed all the pain

    Now the day bleeds, into nightfall
    and you’re not here, to get me through it all
    I let my guard down and then you pulled the rug
    I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved

    I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to turn to
    This all or nothing way of loving got me sleeping without you
    Now I need somebody to know
    somebody to heal
    somebody to have
    just to know how it feels
    It’s easy to say
    but it’s never the same
    I guess I kinda liked the way you helped me escape

    Now the day bleeds, into nightfall
    and you’re not here, to get me through it all
    I let my guard down and then you pulled the rug
    I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved

    And I tend to close my eyes when it hurts sometimes
    I fall into your arms
    I'll be safe in your sound til I come back around

    For now the day bleeds, into nightfall
    and you’re not here, to get me through it all
    I let my guard down and then you pulled the rug
    I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved

    But now the day bleeds, into nightfall
    and you’re not here, to get me through it all
    I let my guard down and then you pulled the rug
    I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved

    I let my guard down and then you pulled the rug
    I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved

    Review comment: 
    - This brings me back to the hospital with my wife fighting for her life. "Now you're not here to get me through it all" that hits so close to home. I have struggled with depression the majority of my life and she is the light that got me to stability. Without her I don't think I would be able to keep going. Love the ones you have like they won't be here tomorrow because one day they won't. 
    Producers: how many people do you want to make cry? Lewis: yes 
    - This sounds too pure to be made in 2019 
    - I'm working really hard to stay alive after a cancer diagnosis. This song gets right inside of my heart 
    - I lost my daughter last Christmas, she was only 28... this resonates with me on so many levels, makes me sing along with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face... thanks Lewis you really are a superstar !

    Lyrics:
    [Verse 1]
    All I can ever be to you is the darkness that we knew
    And this regret I've got accustomed to
    Once it was so right, when we were at our height
    Waiting for you in the hotel at night
    I knew I hadn't met my match
    But every moment we could snatch
    I don't know why I got so attached
    It's my responsibility
    And you don't owe nothing to me
    But to walk away, I have no capacity

    [Chorus]
    He walks away, the sun goes down
    He takes the day, but I'm grown (I'm grown)
    And in your way, in this blue shade
    My tears dry on their own

    [Verse 2]
    I don't understand, why do I stress the man?
    When there's so many bigger things at hand
    We could've never had it all
    We had to hit a wall
    So this is inevitable withdrawal
    Even if I stop wanting you and perspective pushes through
    I'll be some next man's other woman soon
    I cannot play myself again
    I should just be my own best friend
    Not fuck myself in the head with stupid men

    [Chorus]
    He walks away, the sun goes down
    He takes the day, but I'm grown (I'm grown)
    And in your way, in this blue shade
    My tears dry on their own

    [Bridge]
    So we are history
    Your shadow covers me
    The sky above ablaze

    [Chorus]
    He walks away, the sun goes down
    He takes the day, but I'm grown
    And in your way, in this blue shade
    My tears dry on their own

    [Verse 3]
    I wish I could say no regrets
    And no emotional debts
    'Cause as we kiss goodbye, the sun sets
    So we are history, the shadow covers me
    The sky above ablaze that only lovers see

    [Chorus]
    He walks away, the sun goes down
    He takes the day, but I'm grown (I'm grown)
    And in your way, my blue shade
    My tears dry on their own
    Woah, he walks away, the sun goes down
    He takes the day, but I am grown
    And in your way, my deep shade
    My tears dry on their own, woah

    [Outro]
    He walks away, the sun goes down
    He takes the day, but I'm grown
    And in your way, my deep shade
    My tears dry

    Review comment: 
    - I watched the documentary "Amy" for the second time tonight. I'm primarily a rocker, so when she was at her height she was barely on my radar. I was aware of "Rehab" and her bad reputation in the press, but that was it. And like so many, I gave her music a chance only after she died. Immediately I could tell this was something special and I bought "Back to Black". I couldn't believe this was the same person comedians and journalists were painting as some dirty, good for nothing junkie. The sophistication, sensitivity and pain, not to mention her melodic gifts, immediately overwhelmed me. It's easy to romanticize someone after they're gone. Amy wasn't perfect and made some bad decisions, but she was also so authentic and gifted. You get the feeling that she was willing to die for her music. It sounds strange to say this, but I went into a deep depression after absorbing the album. There was a sense of loss, as if I had known her personally. And I did in a way, through the music. She was no longer some disheveled media caricature to me, but a real person with an open and wounded heart. I was going through my own problems with addiction and relationships at the time so the music especially spoke to me. So much so that I can hardly bear to listen to the full record now because it provokes a real sense of grief. I love her almost like I love an ex girlfriend. Maybe more, because she bared it all without holding back. There's no game playing when I hear a song like "Wake up Alone", which is a real heartbreaker. There's no shame in dying, nor failure. Not even dying young. The shame would be if she died broken hearted, and I fear that maybe she did. After Blake and her media crucifixion she seemed broken. And that's just so sad because she was so beautiful and so full of raw, true emotion. She deserved better than a brief, unhappy life. I hope at the end, sitting there watching her videos one last time and having a drink before finally going to sleep, that it dawned on her how much she really accomplished and had to be proud of. Now the tears are ours to cry. 
    - amy's eyeliner will always be iconic. 
    - This is, in my opinion, the best song Amy Winehouse ever released. I am so sad that she is no longer with us. 
    - Amy was so ahead of her time. Timeless actually! 
    - I don’t think Amy realized just how brilliant she was. If only she loved her talent enough to know it was something that needed to stay on this earth. She’s irreplaceable. 

    Tears Dry on Their Own   Amy Winehouse (British)

    Lyrics:
    If I had to live my life without you near me
    The days would all be empty
    The nights would seem so long
    With you I see forever, oh, so clearly
    I might have been in love before
    But it never felt this strong

    Our dreams are young and we both know
    They'll take us where we want to go
    Hold me now, touch me now
    I don't want to live without you

    Nothing's gonna change my love for you
    You oughta know by now how much I love you
    One thing you can be sure of
    I'll never ask for more than your love

    Nothing's gonna change my love for you
    You oughta know by now how much I love you
    The world may change my whole life through
    But nothing's gonna change my love for you

    If the road ahead is not so easy
    Our love will lead the way for us
    Like a guiding star
    I'll be there for you if you should need me
    You don't have to change a thing
    I love you just the way you are

    So come with me and share the view
    I'll help you see forever too
    Hold me now, touch me now

    Lyrics

    I know I can't take one more step towards you
    'Cause all that's waiting is regret
    Don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore
    You lost the love I loved the most

    I learned to live half alive
    Now you want me one more time

    Who do you think you are?
    Runnin' 'round leaving scars
    Collecting your jar of hearts
    Tearing love apart

    You're gonna catch a cold
    From the ice inside your soul
    So don't come back for me
    Who do you think you are?

    I hear you're asking all around
    If I am anywhere to be found
    But I have grown too strong
    To ever fall back in your arms

    I've learned to live half alive
    Now you want me one more time

    Who do you think you are?
    Runnin' 'round leaving scars
    Collecting your jar of hearts
    Tearing love apart

    You're gonna catch a cold
    From the ice inside your soul
    So don't come back for me
    Who do you think you are?

    It took so long just to feel alright
    Remember how to put back the light in my eyes
    I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed
    'Cause you broke all your promises
    And now you're back
    You don't get to get me back

    Who do you think you are?
    Runnin' 'round leaving scars
    Collecting your jar of hearts
    Tearing love apart

    You're gonna catch a cold
    From the ice inside your soul
    So don't come back for me
    Don't come back at all

    Who do you think you are?
    Runnin' 'round leaving scars
    Collecting your jar of hearts
    Tearing love apart

    You're gonna catch a cold
    From the ice inside your soul
    Don't come back for me
    Don't come back at all

    Who do you think you are?
    Who do you think you are?
    Who do you think you are?

    Lyrics: 

    Closed off from love, I didn't need the pain
    Once or twice was enough and it was all in vain
    Time starts to pass, before you know it, you're frozen, ooh
    But something happened for the very first time with you
    My heart melts into the ground, found something true
    And everyone's looking 'round, thinking I'm going crazy, oh

    But I don't care what they say
    I'm in love with you
    They try to pull me away, but they don't know the truth
    My heart's crippled by the vein that I keep on closing
    You cut me open and I

    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
    I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
    You cut me open
    Oh yeah

    Trying hard not to hear, but they talk so loud
    Their piercing sounds fill my ears, try to fill me with doubt
    Yet I know that their goal is to keep me from falling, hey, oh
    But nothing's greater than the rush that comes with your embrace
    And in this world of loneliness, I see your face
    Yet everyone around me thinks that I'm going crazy
    Maybe, maybe

    But I don't care what they say
    I'm in love with you
    They try to pull me away, but they don't know the truth
    My heart's crippled by the vein that I keep on closing
    You cut me open and I

    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
    I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
    You cut me open

    And it's draining all of me
    Though they find it hard to believe
    I'll be wearing these scars for everyone to see

    I don't care what they say
    I'm in love with you
    They try to pull me away, but they don't know the truth
    My heart's crippled by the vein that I keep on closing
    Oh, you cut me open and I

    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
    I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
    Oh, you cut me open and I

    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
    I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
    I keep
    Oh, you cut me open and I
    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love

    Lyrics:

    Did I disappoint you or let you down?
    Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
    'Cause I saw the end, before we'd begun
    Yes, I saw you were blind and I knew I had won

    So I took what's mine by eternal right
    Took your soul out into the night
    It may be over but it won't stop there
    I am here for you if you'd only care

    You touched my heart, you touched my soul
    Changed my life and all my goals
    And love is blind, and that I knew when
    My heart was blinded by you

    I've kissed your lips and held your head
    Shared your dreams and shared your bed
    I know you well, I know your smell
    I've been addicted to you

    Goodbye my lover
    Goodbye my friend
    You have been the one
    You have been the one for me

    Goodbye my lover
    Goodbye my friend
    You have been the one
    You have been the one for me

    I am a dreamer and when I wake
    You can't break my spirit, it's my dreams you take
    And as you move on, remember me
    Remember us and all we used to be

    I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile
    I've watched you sleeping for a while
    I'd be the father of your child
    I'd spend a lifetime with you

    I know your fears and you know mine
    We've had our doubts but now we're fine
    And I love you, I swear that's true
    I cannot live without you

    Goodbye my lover
    Goodbye my friend
    You have been the one
    You have been the one for me

    Goodbye my lover
    Goodbye my friend
    You have been the one
    You have been the one for me

    And I still hold your hand in mine
    In mine when I'm asleep
    And I will bear my soul in time
    When I'm kneeling at your feet

    Goodbye my lover
    Goodbye my friend
    You have been the one
    You have been the one for me

    Goodbye my lover
    Goodbye my friend
    You have been the one
    You have been the one for me

    I'm so hollow baby
    I'm so hollow
    I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow
    I'm so hollow baby
    I'm so hollow
    I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow

    Lyrics:

    [Verse 1]
    If you, if you could return
    Don't let it burn
    Don't let it fade
    I'm sure I might be rude
    But it's just your attitude
    It's tearing me apart
    It's ruining everything
    And I swore, I swore I would be true
    And honey, so did you
    So why were you holding her hand?
    Is that the way we stand?
    Were you lying all the time?
    Was it just a game to you?

    [Chorus]
    But I'm in so deep
    You know I'm such a fool for you
    You've got me wrapped around your finger
    Do you have to let it linger?
    Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it linger?

    [Verse 2]
    Oh, I thought the world of you
    I thought nothing could go wrong
    But I was wrong, I was wrong
    If you, if you could get by
    Trying not to lie
    Things wouldn't be so confused
    And I wouldn't feel so used
    But you always really knew
    I just want to be with you

     

    [Chorus]
    And I'm in so deep
    You know I'm such a fool for you
    You've got me wrapped around your finger
    Do you have to let it linger?
    Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it linger?

    [Instrumental Break]

    [Chorus]
    And I'm in so deep
    You know I'm such a fool for you
    You've got me wrapped around your finger
    Do you have to let it linger?
    Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it linger?
    You know I'm such a fool for you
    You've got me wrapped around your finger
    Do you have to let it linger?
    Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it linger?        

    Review comment:  (The Cranberries - Zombie (Official Music Video))
    "We are so delighted with the news that Zombie has reached 1 Billion views on YouTube!  We are sure Dolores has a big, proud smile on her face too. Thank you so much to all our fans around the world for supporting us over so many years. Hopefully you are all safe and well in this bizarre time and managing to find some hope and positivity in our music."  - Fergal Lawler 
    Help us get Zombie to a billion views! Achieving this milestone will make "Zombie" the first ever music video by an Irish band to reach one billion views on YouTube, taking its place in a select group of iconic rock music videos released before 2003 to hit that mark, including Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Guns N' Roses' "November Rain." 
    - One of the best anti-war songs of all time. Appreciated not only in Britain and Ireland but the world over. RIP Dolores. 
    - To this day, it still gives me chills. 
    - This is one of the legendary songs which will never die 
    - She may be gone, but her music will live on forever.

    Lyrics:
    It's undeniable
    That we should be together
    It's unbelievable
    How I used to say, that I'd fall never
    The basis is need to know
    If you don't know just how I feel
    Then let me show you now that I'm, for real
    If all things in time, time will reveal
    (Yeah, yeah)

    One, you're like a dream come true
    Two, just wanna be with you
    Three, girl, It's plain to see
    That you're the only one for me, and

    Four, repeat steps one through three
    Five, make you fall in love with me
    If ever I believe my work is done
    Then I'll start back at one
    (Yeah, yeah)

    It's so incredible
    The way things work themselves out
    And all emotional
    Once you know what it's all about (hey)

    And undesirable
    For us to be apart
    Never would've made it very far
    'Cause you know, you've got the keys to my heart, 'cause

    One, you're like a dream come true
    Two, just wanna be with you
    Three, girl, It's plain to see
    That you're the only one for me, and

    Four, repeat steps one through three
    Five, make you fall in love with me
    If ever I believe my work is done
    Then I'll start back at one

    Say farewell to the dark of night
    I see the comin' of the sun
    I feel like a little child, whose life has just begun
    You came and breathed new life
    Into this lonely heart of mine
    You threw out the lifeline
    Just in the nick of time

    One, you're like a dream come true
    Two, just wanna be with you
    Three, girl, It's plain to see
    That you're the only one for me, and

    Four, repeat steps one through three
    Five, make you fall in love with me
    If ever I believe my work is done
    Then I'll start back at one

    Review comment:
    - This is a message for future generations, don't let music like this die 
    - Does anyone else get chills when someone hits a high note perfectly? 
    - Even as a child these lyrics resonated so deeply with me. Now I'm 25, a sloppy romantic and deeply in love with the 90s in a world that doesn't seem to cherish romance. 
    - O romantismo em pessoa, sem palavras, só sei sentir... Quem mais ouvindo esse OURO em 2022???

    Lyrics:

    You promised the world and I fell for it
    I put you first and you adored it
    Set fires to my forest
    And you let it burn
    Sang off-key in my chorus
    'Cause it wasn't yours

    I saw the signs and I ignored it
    Rose-colored glasses all distorted
    Set fire to my purpose
    And I let it burn
    You got off on the hurtin'
    When it wasn't yours, yeah

    We'd always go into it blindly
    I needed to lose you to find me
    This dancing was killing me softly
    I needed to hate you to love me, yeah

    To love, love, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, yeah
    I needed to lose you to love me, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, yeah
    I needed to lose you to love me

    I gave my all and they all know it
    Then you tore me down and now it's showing
    In two months, you replaced us
    Like it was easy
    Made me think I deserved it
    In the thick of healing, yeah

    We'd always go into it blindly
    I needed to lose you to find me
    This dancing was killing me softly
    I needed to hate you to love me, yeah

    To love, love, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, yeah
    I needed to lose you to love me, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, yeah
    I needed to lose you to love me

    You promised the world and I fell for it
    I put you first and you adored it
    Set fires to my forest
    And you let it burn
    Sang off-key in my chorus

    To love, love, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, yeah
    I needed to hate you to love me, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, yeah
    I needed to lose you to love me

    To love, love, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, yeah

    And now the chapter is closed and done
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, love, yeah
    To love, yeah
    And now it's goodbye, it's goodbye for us

    Review comment:
    Selena gomez This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album. I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.
    I love her because she's not afraid of showing her emotions. 
    - She’s not overrated she’s extremely talented and been in this industry for so long killing it. She deserves her recognition 
    - This is not a song..this is once in a lifetime masterpiece that’s filled with emotions that everyone can relate with. 
    - I Can relate to this song so much. My ex-husband replaced me for a much younger model, after almost 30 years of marriage. Left and divorced me while I was battling cancer. Now, 4 years later, after 3 years of therapy I’ve learned to truly love myself. AND…I’m cancer free, now!! Fingers crossed I will stay that way! I’m 55, and I don’t know if I will ever fall in love again, and that makes me sad…but, I will be ok. But, this song is just beautiful and I cry every time I hear it. 
    - “I think it’s important to realize you can miss something, but not want it back.” 
    - I think this song is not just about heartbreak from an ex. It's more than that. It's like, a farewell song to your past self, and I think that's beautiful. 

These songs cover a range of genres and time periods, expressing the emotions and complexities of unrequited love through powerful lyrics and evocative melodies. On behalf of the Top10enter editorial board, we wish readers to have relaxing moments with suitable melodies, thanks all
