"Let's Start A Band" as written by and Amy Elizabeth Macdonald....
Put a ribbon round my neck and call me a libertine
I will sing you songs of dreams I used to dream
I will sail away on seas of silver and gold
Until I reach my home
Give me a guitar and I'll be your troubadour
Your strolling minstrel 12th century door to door
I don't know anymore, if that feeling is past will it last
Oh, how can you be sure?

And how do I know if you're feeling the same as me?
And how do I know if that's the only place you want to be?

Give me a stage and I'll be your rock and roll queen
Your 20th century cover of a magazine
Rolling Stones here I come, watch out everyone, I'm singing
I'm singing my song
Give me a festival and I'll be your Glastonbury star
The lights are shining everyone knows who you are
Singing songs about dreams about hopes about schemes
Oh, they just came true

And how do I know if you're feeling the same as me?
And how do I know if that's the only place you want to be?
And how do I know if you're feeling the same as me?
And how do I know if that's the only place you want to be?

And if you want it too, then there's nothing left to do
Let's start a band
Let's start a band
Let's start a band
Let's start a band

And if you want it too, then there's nothing left to do.

    My InterpretationFace value meaning: Starting a Band

    'Deeper meaning': Sharing a partnership with someone you care about, whether it be in a band, a friendship, a relationship, or marriage. It is about sharing an intense bond with another and the anxieties that go along with. It is about giving up the self for the sake of the whole that could be.


    That ultimately you just got to go for it the more you think the more you doubt and question:
    "And how do I know if you're feeling the same as me?
    And how do I know if that's the only place you want to be?"

    "And if you want it too, then there's nothing left to do, Let's start a band"

    The last lines can make me cry sometimes, I don't know why, its not a particularly amazing song.
