I never cared much for this world
(I just want to be someone like you)
But I never said I wouldn't reach deep down to blow them all away

I can feel it
But I don't know where my life's supposed to go
I can see it
But I'm covered by the fear of the unknown
I could hear it
But my head's too sick to listen on my own
Want to do it my way

I never had much of my own
(I just want to feel the sun like you)
But I never said I wouldn't spread these wings to rise and fly away

I can feel it
But I don't know where my life's supposed to go
I can see it
But I'm covered by the fear of the unknown
I could hear it
But my head's too sick to listen on my own
Want to do it my way

Will I be here for you?
Of course I will
Just remember when you're by yourself...
I've faced trying times, and I've seen pain
I've been through many different walks of life
And just because I haven't seen them all
Doesn't really matter 'cause I'm floating

I can feel it
But I don't know where my life's supposed to go
I can see it
But I'm covered by the fear of the unknown
I could hear it
But my head's too sick to listen on my own
Want to do it my way

    I think it's actually (this will sound so morbid of me) about suicide. I mean, he talks about someone being alone, and a few other things, and so that's just my thoughts.

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.

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/

Punchline
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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
