I've got a girl in Saux St. Marie, she takes a bus every weekend just to come across the miles to me. She leaves her room in the shadow of the bridge to spend two days life blind in my dirty bed. Doesn't ask questions, never talks down about the things I do when she isn't around. Yeah, I just about live in the bars around town, I lose myself in the voice of the crowd. Each and every day I need static because I don't want to go home alone. I know a girl just outside of LaCrosse. She meets me in Milwaukee when the weather gets humid and hot. She leaves her husband and retarded baby girl just to walk for a while unencumbered in an easier world. No questions, never asks why. I walk the floor in the middle of the night and stare out the window of an ugly motel at the neon signs outside, think about the hell. I sell to make my static. I don't want to go home. I don't want to go home alone. Got a girl in Saux St. Marie, she takes a bus every weekend just to come across the miles to me. She leaves her room in the shadow of the bridge just to spend two days life blind in my dirty bed. Doesn't ask questions, never talks down about the life I lead when she isn't around. Yeah, I just about live in the bars around town. I lose myself in the voice of the crowd. I walk around stupid, blind and proud. Each and every day I need static. I don't want to go home alone. I don't want to go home.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.
