Here I go on another trip
Another meal I skip
Cos I'm lookin for something

It's something that I may never find
But I've got lots of time
And it's never for nothing

Cos one thing I won't do is lay down and die
Cos I'm not a quitter

Some things I've gotta figure out for myself
And you just can't tell me
And maybe some distant rainy day
I'll look back and I'll feel so silly
But til then I'll keep on pushin on
Until one day I'll break through
Become the man that I knew I'd be
And I will owe it all to you

Sometimes all that it's gotta take
Is to make mistakes
And my lesson is branded
But through my trials I will find my way
And I'll never say that my lesson was handed

Although you tried your best
To lend me a hand
This is still my lesson

Some things I've gotta figure out for myself
And you just can't tell me
And maybe some distant rainy day
I'll look back and I'll feel so silly
But til then I'll keep on pushin on
Until one day I'll break through
Become the man that I knew I'd be
And I will owe it all to you

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
