Well I knew a dealer, Dan, and he'd say
"Don't worry 'bout me -
I'm never gonna fit the plan
And I'll never work for free"
And then he spent some time in a State Penitentiary
I believe he made ten cents an hour
And I knew a girl in college
Sweet as the summer sun
Never worried 'bout books and knowledge
She was having too much fun
And I hear these days she's living at home with a three year old son
Reading up on women taking power
The trees grow high
and the leaves they grow green
And me oh my all the things that I have seen
Don't be surprised little bro
When the world turns out mean
Life is what happens In Between
Well I know a man, old man, about ninety five
He could hardly see nor stand
But he was goddamn glad to be alive
And he said, "Hey son go and taste of life!
Get in your car and drive."
And that's exactly what I do
But out here on the road
You know a man leads a simple life
Don't carry no heavy loads
Ad he don't get time for the lady or a wife
But sometimes the stars aren't fallin'
Oh no they don't shine so bright
And that's when I wish I was home with you
The trees they grow high
And the leaves they grow green
And me oh my all the things that I have seen
Don't be surprised little bro
When the world turns out mean
Life is what happens In Between
Well you remember our dad, remember what he said?
He said, "This here's a family,
Gonna be together 'til we're dead"
Ten years and two homes ago
It ain't quite what turned out to be
And I still hear those words
They ring and ring and ring inside of me
The trees grow high
And the leaves they grow green
And me oh my all the things that I have seen
Don't be surprised little bro
When the world turns out mean
Life is what happens In Between
Life is what happens In Between

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.
