And maybe it's the games we play
And I don't know who's right
Slowly breaks me down, and
Oh, I need you round, baby
Never say too much, and never cry, I'm down

And maybe I could be more than down
If you hold me down
And maybe I could be
If you hold me down, I could make it out

Say call me, 'cause I'm in need of some company, yeah
And call me, when you're feeling oh, so lonely
And call me, 'cause you know that my love is carefree, yeah
Call me, call me

Maybe it's the games we play
And I don't know who's right
It slowly breaks me down, the more I need you round, baby
I never say too much, I never cry out loud

And maybe I could be more than down
If you hold me down
And maybe I could be
If you hold me down
I could make it out

Say call me, 'cause I'm in need of some company, yeah
And call me, now when you're feeling oh, so lonely
And call me, 'cause you know that my love is carefree, yeah
Call me, call me

Whenever you're down, whenever you're near
Whenever you call me
I'll always be here, I'll always be around
No need to be sorry
I needed you then, I needed you now
So baby, I'm sorry
I'll always be here, I'll always be 'round
No need to be sorry
No need to be sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry
No need to be sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry
No need to be sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry
No need to be sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry

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.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
