Just down the road, some sixty miles away
There's smoke in the sky, she's going down in flames

Please wait for me, please wait for me
Time will fly like a cannonball, my darlin' you will see

Take all of my love and let it keep you warm
I shall return when we settle the score

Please wait for me
Oh I've waited so long, time has yet to prove who was right,
who was wrong
I have to justify all of my fears, down a broken road of tears
I love you, remember I need you, please wait for me

Just down the road, some sixty miles away
There's smoke in the sky, oh, she's going down in flames

Please, please wait for me, please wait for me
I'm goin' down the on stair, oh, but a heart with my head low
Please wait for me, my darlin' wait for me, please...

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.

Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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

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.
