Weird friendless kid
You don't know where you live
No one knows a thing about you
No one ever did
Weird friendless kid
You might be weird but you're not stupid
We’ve all seen the pictures you drew
We know what’s in your head
Uninvitedchild
But you never seem to mind
Eating from your purple lunchbox
While we are talk about you
About you
It's alright to stay
Nobody gets away
Except you
Why you're like you are ?
Do you think you're a star
La la la la....
I sometimes think I'd like to speak to you
And find out who you are
Uninvited guest
You won't fitin withall the rest
Just a bubble in a perfect paintjob
Well we are talk about you
Talk about you
Talk about you
Just a bubble in a perfect paintjob
Brings everybody down
Yes you do
It's alright to stay
Nobody gets away
Except you
Why you're like you are ?
Do you think you're a star
La la la la....
Dipin’ fromyour purple lunchbox
It's alright you know
You can come as you are
La la la la....
And if it's like you say
You got a chance to move away
One bye, one, we'll knock on your door
Tell how we feel like
Or how we felt about you
Feel about you
Feel about you
Felt about you
Feel about you

    ever heard a song that seems like someone watched you for about two weeks and then wrote a song about you? It's really strange to hear this song because it sums up what it is to be a weird friendless kid in a way that is.....erie. Something that can only possibly be written if you know what it's like to walk to your own pace and wonder what other people think of you.

    It could be my own morbidness but I think the "weird friendless kid" ends up committing suicide in the end.

    "And if it's like you say You got a chance to move away One by one, we'll knock on your door Tell how we feel like - Or how we felt about you."

    The other kids going to the wake/funeral. Now that the kid's dead they feel bad for talking about him/her, they visit the family, all that.

    "No one knows a thing about you No one ever did."

    Meaning nobody knew anything about the kid until he/she died.

    "We've all seen the pictures you drew We know what's in your head."

    Maybe the loner drew dark pictures or wrote really depressing poems. Could be that these other kids found them, but didn't feel like it was a big deal. They continued talking and gossiping.

    "But you never seemed to mind Eating from your purple lunchbox While we all talk about you."

    In the end, it really isn't their fault, but they still probably feel guilty.

    "Just a bubble in a perfect paint job Brings everybody down Yes you do."

    I think this is the "weird friendless kid" talking themselves down. Their inner monologue.

    IDK. I twist a lot of songs into suicide, so it's probably not.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but 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,

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.
