Takin' it easy
Wasting my time everywhere I go
Then you try to please me
Telling me things I already know
Well, think I'm going on a vacation
Slippin' on my shoes
Do I need an explanation,
One that I can use?
But I know - That it shows - Here I go

Skatin', Ohhh
Goin' skatin', over the water
I'm skatin', through my heart,
Through my heart I go

Now I can't deny it
Givin' is such an easy task
You just got to try it
'stead of wondering what you're gonna ask, yeah
Outside my window it's freezin'
And the day is new
Tell myself that I believe in
What I know ain't true
Yes I do know - That it shows - Here I go

Skatin', Ohhh
Goin' skatin', over the water
I'm skatin', through my heart,
Through my heart I go

What good does it do for me to say
You're going nowhere?
On the lake the ice will pave your way
Leave it all behind just to get there

Skatin', Ohhh
Goin' skatin', over the water
I'm skatin', through my heart,
Through my heart I go

Skatin', Ohhh
Goin' skatin', over the water
I'm skatin'

Skatin', Ohhh
Goin' skatin', over the water
I'm skatin', through my heart,
Through my heart I go
(repeat)

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.

Magical
Ed Sheeran

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
