U2
Song:ONE

This song talk about that the couple love is how the same to be inside the other one . But comes the disappointment!!
And one of them preached but not practiced, that love is a higher law and a temple and the other does not want to immersing in the pain ...

Enjoy!!

This song meanings that he feels lonely without his soul mate.
When he talks to his friends about her, he cries. Also his heart breaks every time he hears her name. Now she's with another man but he has to accept that he lost her.

BEATLES- Let it Be

Ozer OZTURK

Paul McCartney wrote this song. It was for his mother, Mary, who died when he was 14. Many people thought "Mother Mary" was a biblical reference when they heard it.

McCartney had a dream one night when he was paranoid and anxious. He saw his mom who had been dead for ten years or so; she came to him in his time of trouble, speaking words of wisdom. This brought him much peace when he needed it. It was this sweet dream that got him to begin writing the song.

John Lennon hated this song because of it's apparent Christian overtones.

The album had the largest initial sales in US record history up to that time: 3.7 million advance orders

Since Let It Be was The Beatles last album, it made an appropriate statement about leaving problems behind and moving on in life.

I really liked this song because it brought me back in time and reminded me how my dad used to tell me that everything was always going to be alright no matter what. I hope I can memorize this song and some day be able to sing it properly.

This song is about a boy who is in love with a girl, but he found a diary written by her, in wich she said that she is in love with someone else not he. That was a big surpirse for him, because she never show it. He has broken his heart, but he gave her his freedom.

This is my comment about my song El Diary by Bread.

I think that this song is very sad, because nobody wants to go through that, and less when is in love.
