Sold my best shirt at the second hand. Called a friend from the road?said he understands. Sold most everything you left here with me; whatever I can't carry, I?ll just leave. Had a dream about the end last night. Dreamt of that place where we said good-bye. Snow on a bridge in the cold moonlight ? you asked which way I was headin?; and I told you, and you walked to the other side. But, how long did you stay warm with all of those letters of mine that you burned? And, tomorrow won't be as cold as today. When the sun comes up, I?ll be gone ? gone to Santa Fe. Strange now that you're gone, I think I know you well. Oh, if I could meet you for the first time right now. I know all the things you always needed to hear. I guess Fate?s always just. she's just not always fair. But, how long did you stay warm with all of those letters of mine that you burned? And, tomorrow won't be as cold as today. When the sun comes up, I?ll be gone ? gone to Santa Fe. The thing I can't shake and I can't stand?you were only an hour in the ages of my hands. Always thought we deserved some more time somehow. Now, the hour is as lonely as the days are long. And, I'm gone to Santa Fe.

@[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.

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,

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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
