she just left me, oh
and there’s no one here that I
want to change her for
and I was good for her
still she says she don’t know
who she adores

where did we go wrong
was it somewhere along this trip to Miami
where did we go wrong
was it somewhere along this trip to Miami

well I don’t agree
that you’re better off without
Sir Raymond not me
'cause we were good for you
still you say you don’t know
with whom you should be

where did we go wrong
was it somewhere along this trip to Miami
where did we go wrong
was it somewhere along this trip to Miami

why should I bother
I don’t need no other to be on myself
why should I bother
I don’t need no other, no no

so where did we go wrong
was it somewhere along this trip to Miami
where did we go wrong
was it somewhere along this trip to Miami

    Song Meaning

    The song is about a guy who spends too much time on his hobby (music) and therefore doesn't pay enough attention to his girlfriend. She tries to make him notice her, but he's to wrapped up by his guitar... . Eventually she leaves him, and he wonders where the relationship went wrong, without realising that he was the cause.

    Ok this belgium rockband just..rocks and this song from them is the first i heared. It reminds me now at a friend of me in miami, FL, however it got nothing to do with him. Except the place then. However, Joost Sweegers is a great artist - lyricwriter - singer - musician

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/

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.
