America – Don't Cross The River Lyrics 3 years ago
I never understood the meaning until I ran across this link
Here is what's listed there...
The lyrics are Peek's advice to a lost and lonely girl who loves life in the fast lane but feels emptiness within. He tells her, "Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide," meaning that if she is going to live life for her own fleshly reasons, she will likely be unhappy and do not expect otherwise. He invites her to accept Jesus by reminding her that "If you want, you can ride my train and soon forget the reason that you're leaving" - leaving the old life behind, and that "You'll lose yourself but then some time, maybe even save yourself some grievin'" - you'll leave certain pleasures behind but soon forget about them and save yourself many heartaches and hours of loneliness.
Great song!!

Teddy Pendergrass – The Whole Town's Laughing at Me Lyrics 3 years ago
In modern-day language, this guy had the girl, knew that she liked him, but for whatever reason, he did not treat her like someone he was serious about. He probably decided to go "ghost" on her at some point, meaning losing contact with her because he thought that since she was a good girl, she would be waiting when he decided to return. Meanwhile, when she does not hear from him over the course of a couple of weeks, she goes through some self-esteem issues wondering why he left her. Was there something wrong with her? What did she do that made him lose interest? The guy--realizing at some point, that he had something very special after his quest for finding something better doesn't yield any results--contacts the girl out of nowhere. She entertains him for a bit, but he never apologizes for the pain she went through, probably because he doesn't understand the depths of her pain. Everything seems fine for a day or two, but she no longer trusts him as he goes ghost and there are pockets of time where he can't be found. So, realizing she doesn't want this type of unstable love, she decides to let him go. Now, he is going crazy because he thought that he was God's gift to her, but in truth, it was the other way around.
