If he gave all his time well he made you his faith well
It wouldn't make you happy like the look on his face
As you pulled out the hour glass and emptied his
Dreams like sand explained how his time meant
Nothing and to listen to your demands and all the work
He's put in on you if you only knew sit down with him
Tonight and try to make it right so the story didn't say
Monday 'til Tuesday and Wednesday feels like go away
Day he abandoned ship that's what it took to prove
The man overboard meant something to you and now
You have to find a shoulder to cry on and tell your
Friends how it was all his fault it's never yours and
Now you feel you're growing older you're dead wrong
And you can't spend a single day away from him if
She gave all her time she gave up her friends well it
Wouldn't make you happy just to see her bend 'cause
You feel you're the victim and she is so guilty what an
Easy sentence he's the judge and jury and all those
Nights he didn't spend with you if you only knew how
Do you feel inside it's just not right well should I go
Away I'll think about you everyday and please don't
Roll your eyes I'll ask you one last time well should we
Stay the same it would still be Monday

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”

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.

Punchline

He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
