Girls and boys

He only knew her for a little while
But he had grown accustomed to her style
She had the cutest ass he'd ever seen
He did to, they were meant to be
They loved to kiss on the steps of versailles
It looked like rain, mama, birds do fly
I love you baby, I love you so much
Maybe we can stay in touch
Meet me in another world, space and joy
Vous êtes très belle, mama, girls and boys

He gave her all the love that anyone can
But she was promised to another man
He tried so hard not to go insane
Birds do fly, looks like rain
I love you baby, I love you so much
Maybe we can stay in touch
Meet me in another world, space and joy
Vous êtes très belle, mama, girls and boys

Life is precious baby, love is so rare
I can take the breakup if you say that you care
He had to run away, his pride was to strong
It started raining, baby, the birds were gone
(I love you baby, I love you so much)
Maybe (maybe we can stay in touch)
Meet me in another world (meet me in another world, space and joy)
Vous êtes très belle (vous êtes très belle, mama)
Girls and boys (girls and boys)

(I love you baby, I love you so much)
I want you, babe
Maybe we can stay in touch)
Maybe we can play today
(Meet me in another world, space and joy)
Vous êtes très belle (vous êtes très belle, mama)
Girls and boys (girls and boys)

Vous étiez de l'autre côté de la salle
Vous dansiez si fort
Je sentais votre parfum
Votre sourire me dit que nous devrions nous parler
Sur la piste de danse, baby
Fais cet appel pour moi, oh, oui, baby
Sexe et repos, baby, résistez pas
Je sais, c'est vrai que vous aimerez ça
Baby, ah, oh
Je vous enlacerai avec mes jambes, baby
Pendant des heures je vais vous étonner, baby
Fleur dans votre bain, amour dans vos draps
Faire l'amour, faire l'amour
Nous nous rencontrerons, bon, bon?

I love you baby, I love you so much
Maybe we can stay in touch
Meet me in another world, space and joy,
Vous êtes très belle, mama, girls and boys

(I love you baby)
I want you baby (I love you so much)
I want you so much (maybe we can stay in touch)
Maybe, maybe we can stay in touch
(meet me in another world, space and joy)
Another world, space (vous êtes très belle)
Lips, face (mama, girls and boys)

Happiness in it's uncut form
Is the feeling that I get, you're warm, warm
Happy's what I get when we do what we do
Happiness, mama, is being with you
Good lord

Meet me somewhere after dawn
Lord uh
I love you baby, I love you so much
Maybe we can stay in touch
I love you baby, I love you so much

Vous êtes with it, stay in touch
(Maybe we can stay in touch) so like I saw you from across the room, and
(Maybe we can stay in touch) honey, you danced so hard I smelled your perfume
(Maybe we can stay in touch) and the look on your lips said that a,
(Maybe we can stay in touch) we could talk some more on this dance floor baby
Hear the words I'm saying feel the sex I'm laying (I love you baby, I love you so much)
Naughty's what I want to be with you tonight (maybe we can stay in touch)
Tonight
(Meet me in another world, space and joy)
Vous êtes très belle, mama, girls and boys
Vous êtes très belle, mama, girls and boys
Vous êtes très belle, mama, girls and boys
Vous êtes très belle, mama, girls and boys
Girls and boys

    The courting dance of two people with pure attraction, but alas, it was not meant to be.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
