nothing ever goes your way
outcast with fear in your eyes, with fear in your eyes
bring your knife to the drive-in and meet your destiny

and the sky turns black
angels are fighting for your soul
the sin is so overcoming, so tempting
nothing ever goes yoru way
and the girls laugh, the hate grows
you seclude yourself to darkness

but i'll still pray

i'll still pray for love to find your eyes burning with shame
and to end the bitternness that shakes your body

please let me love you one lie too many
now one lie is gone
you're falling, please let me love you

it never fails

how the lies taunt you
and how the bitterness shakes your body
closing your eyes so you cannot see His grace
everything's drawing near, and it rushes into hate
you've waited too long for it to disappear, to die again
let Him love you
don't wait for the evening sleep to end
hold His hand

    actually this song is about one of joshs friends that he watched fall deeper into a hole of substance abuse. This song is more of a prayer for him. the singing part that isnt in there says "and ill be there whenever you might need me. you might not know, but still my heart is beating. i drive my car, the radio is playing and soon you'll know" That part was actually written by joel but it says that although he might not agree with the other persons actions, he is still going to offer prayer and support.

    what are the singing parts so far this is what i hear:

    and i'll be here whenever you might need me i may not know (hang on one more day) everything, but we'll (nothing lasts forever) drive this car with the radio playing and soon you'll see

    and i need your words and i need you in my ears and time stands still

    and i'll drive you home and i'll try to hold your hand and time stands still

    i'm sure some of that is wrong, but that is what i hear. why is it not in the lyrics?

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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/

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

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.
