this is where those movies make their money
it doesn't hurt, it's more like being thirsty
in lonely airport waves, and drugged-up, dimlit raves
this is where those movies make their money

this is where the wisdom hits the airwaves
this is where yastrzemski makes the big play
in our cars and in our homes, with everything on loan
this is where the wisdom hits the airwaves

it's time for a bit of in-the-bed disco
it's time for a bit of in-the-bed disco

Christiane, bitte ein kuss
Christiane, bitte ein kuss
Christiane

you are so much chaos
so love your chaos
doin' it is wrestling underwater
you are so much chaos
so love your chaos now

it's time for a bit of in-the-bed disco
it's time for a bit of in-the-bed disco

Christiane, bitte ein kuss
Christiane, bitte ein kuss
Christiane, do you wanna
Christiane, bitte ein kuss

her hips
her hips are like seashells
and i can hear the ocean when i listen

her hips
her hips are like seashells
and i can hear the ocean when i listen

her hips
her hips are like seashells
and i can hear the ocean when i

Christiane, bitte ein kuss
Christiane, bitte ein kuss
Christiane, do you wanna
Christiane, bitte ein kuss

    do the lines 'her hips / her hips are like seashells / and i can hear the ocean when i listen' have any sexual connotations? or am i just a sick kid ;D ... i dunno, it could be metaphorical.. like the sound of the ocean is calming, so he rests his head in her lap and is calmed... or it could be a much more sexual connotation. what does everyone else think?

    I saw Jonah in concert two days ago and he said that this song is about oral sex. He said that usually guys talk/sing about getting but he thinks giving is just as cool. If you have a chance to see him live, GO FOR IT. He is amazing. How many songwriters do you know that are so tackful and beautiful about such a sensitive topic?

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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”

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.
