Oh, oh
Oh, here I go again
Falling in love all over
Oh, the cycle never ends
You just pray you don't get burned

Oh, this fire inside of me
Don't nobody realize
Oh, what you are to me
But baby you got to learn

I'm making you a coat of pink cashmere
You got to know how I feel about you
How I always want you near

I'm making you a coat of pink cashmere
I'm counting every minute of every hour
'Til you are here

Girl, can you understand
I never used to go dancing
I, I was the kind of man who rather stay at home
Now, when I think about
H-how much I miss you
I want to jump for joy
And thank hIm I'm not alone (i am not alone)

Oh, I'm making you a coat of pink cashmere
You got to know how I feel about you baby
How I always want you near

I'm making you a coat of pink cashmere
I'm gonna count every minute of every hour
Until you are here ('til you are here)

Oh oh (oh oh oh)
Hey, hey
Here I go again
Falling in love all over
Oh, the cycle never ends (cycle never endin')
You pray you don't get burnt, awh

I'm making you a coat (I'm making you a coat of pink cashmere)
Cashmere, baby, cashmere (you got to know how I feel about you)
You got to know (how I always want you near)
Yeah baby, baby, baby, baby (I'm making you a coat of pink cashmere)

How I feel about you
How I feel about you

(I'm counting every minute of every hour, 'til you are here)

When I get my arms around you baby (yeah)
So many things I'm gonna do (pink cashmere)

I'm gonna hug you (you got to know how I feel about you)
I'm gonna kiss you (how I always want you near)
Like your, like your guru (I'm making you a coat of pink cashmere)

I want to tell you a bedtime story baby
I you never heard before (I'm counting every minute of every hour, every hour)
I said one you never heard before (how I feel about you)

About a girl (coat of pink cashmere)
About a boy
And all their joy
All the things they show each other (coat of pink cashmere)

How to stay in love
How to stay so happy
Baby girl (coat of pink cashmere)
So many things
So many things
I'm gonna do

Can't you come to me? (Coat of pink cashmere)
Can't you get to me?
I'm gonna make gonna I'm gonna gonna gonna 'onna
I'm gonna make a little pretty pink coat of cashmere

'Cause you've got to know
How I feel about you babe
How I feel about you babe
I'm gonna make a little pretty coat
I'm gonna count every second, every minute
Each and every hour of every day

'Til you come on back
Come on back
To your little man

Gonna make you a coat of cashmere baby

    I think this is one of my favourite songs of all time. It feels like fairytail.

    A beautiful song. The orchestral strings just add to the fairytale (I agree with cervante!) feeling. The idea of being thankful for having someone to miss -- a neat twist on the usual "woe is me". Just a superb song overall.

    It's very interesting to hear Prince write from this perspective. It reminds me of "When you Were Mine". The longing in this song isn't as desperate as it's depicted usually in songs.

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.
