"Gasoline" as written by Ricardo Thomas, Earl T Stevens, D. Bernstein and Andrew Seidel....
Oh well, oh well
I guess you got it all worked out so far
You adjust your reason
Until you see the light from where you are

But you can never win
You can never lose
That's the worst part
You can only say that what you want
Is where you are

You beautiful girl
Won't you listen to me
Well I tried so hard to give you what you need
And it burned like gasoline

Hmm, oh no

Oh well, oh well
It never took a lot to make this hard
'Cause you were so off balance
And I knew all the words to set you off

But you can never win
You can never lose
That's the scorned heart
Then you throw your head back
And you laugh at where we are

You're a beautiful girl
So, won't you listen to me
Well I tried so hard to give you what you need
And it burned like gasoline
Won't you listen to me
Well I tried so hard to give you what you need
And it burned like gasoline, gasoline, oh,
Gasoline, gasoline, oh no no no

You're a beautiful girl
So won't you listen to me
Well I tried so hard to give you what you need
And it burned like gasoline
Won't you listen to me
Well I tried so hard to give you what you need
And it burned like gasoline
Hmm, oh no
Burned like gasoline, oh no
It burned like gasoline
Oh,

    General Commenti think this song is about living in the middle, so you can't win but you can't lose either. The girl he is singing to just rationalizes everything "You adjust your reason
    Until you see the light from where you are" so that she seems happy but really she's just complacent. He tried to help her find something better, but it was too fleeting, hence "it burned like gasoline"

    General CommentYou live in the middle of what you want and what you don't. And you feel like you are stuck there, so you lie and say that is where you want to be. You pretend you are happy, 'you see the light from where you are' you try and see the good parts where they aren't. And he wants to help her, but it pushes her away from him, so it burned like gasoline. He is trying to give her what she needs, but it does everything bad to him.
