Thought I'd take a trip down to the old world
'cause I heard a lot of things about the North American girls
I was looking for a lady
someone to have my baby

So I got me on a 747 Pan-American plane
I sat me down next to your all-American dame
Said I'm going up north
she said it's a pity
Then she told about the gold
down in Mexico City

Oh she said "Lordy Lordy
watch the blue smoke flying
every morning and every night
to get you out of your head
Oh man oh Lordy Lordy it's a natural high
when you're living down south
and it's going right out of your head

Got off the plane went to the customs
and they gave me a list
Do you carry a gun take drugs or are you Communist
They said my papers were in order
I wasn't staying long no sir
I'm going south across the border


Took the first southbound
across the Rio and down
Found a little place in the small Mexico town
Just me and my lady
now she's having my baby

chorus x2

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.
