Your mother wants to know,
If you're coming home,
For the three-day weekend,
She says "No big deal",
But is that how it feels?
Your phone voice is all pretend

She makes you feel so small,
Like you never moved out at all,
You feel so small,
But she doesn't mean it after all

Your mother wants to know,
Why you're acting as though,
She planned the whole life that you lead,
She wants so bad to be,
A mother perfectly,
But she's nothing like what you want to be

She makes you feel so small,
Like you never moved out at all,
You feel so small,
But she doesn't mean it after all

Your mother gets along,
But she misses Hong Kong,
You know, but never to what extent,
She makes Sunday's meal,
Into such a big deal,
But to you it's a total non-event

She makes you feel so small,
Like you never moved out at all,
You feel so small,
But she doesn't mean it after all

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
