We were sitting in the harbor
With our sights out on the land
There was something someone or other
That we couldn't quite understand
About the driving wheel
Want to know how it feels
To be taking time out turn it all about
We're taking hold, the drivin' wheel

And there were miles of time
Drowned in the wine
We were talkin' 'bout better days
It was years ago when we felt the goal
Was anchored to the changing ways
Anchored to the changing ways

There ain't nothin' here
Only the fear of
What is right and what is real
Satisfaction smile came on board
For a while
We're taking hold, take hold the drivin' wheel

We were sitting in the harbor
Had our sights on the land
All the men at the wheel moving on
With the plan
We were reaching together for
The same end
Sun shiny weather comin' 'round
The bend
comin' round the bend

There ain't nothin' here
Only the fear of
What is right and what is real
Satisfaction smile came on board
For a while
Take hold the drivin' wheel
Take hold, take hold, take hold of the drivin' wheel
I want to know, want to know, I want to know just how it feels
Take hold take hold take hold of the drivin' wheel
Take hold take hold take hold of the drivin' wheel
Take hold take hold take hold of the drivin' wheel
Take hold take hold take hold of the drivin' wheel
(repeat)

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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/

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.

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.
