You keep calling me on the telephone
You say you're all alone
Well that's real sad

And you keep leavin'
Notes stuck on my door
Guess you're hungry for some more
Girl that's too bad

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
I ain't that lonely yet

Once there was this spider in my bed
I got caught up in her web
Of love and lies

She spun her chains around my heart and soul
Never to let go
Oh but I survived

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
I ain't that lonely yet

There's nothing left that you can do
To try and bring me 'round
'Cause everything you do
Just brings me down

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
I ain't that lonely yet

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
No I ain't that lonely yet

'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet
After what you put me through
No I ain't that lonely yet
'Cause I ain't that lonely yet
No I ain't that lonely yet

    a brilliant song, one of my all time favourites. As for the meaning, its pretty self-explanatory, a woman hurts him and now wants him to take her back. I think its a little bit deeper than that; he is really tempted and the whole song is him talking to himself, telling himself that she is bad for him and he needs to forget about her. Very well written and beautifully sung.

    I totally agree. The more you listen to this song, the more you realize he keeps telling himself that he doesn't want to take her back when he really does. One of my favorites

    This song recently hit home and actually made me laugh. Girlfriend ended things I still wanted to make things work she said there was no way possible. "We need to date other people to see if this is what we want" 2 weeks after we broke up she was all over some guy and I decided that night I needed to move on. It has been 3 months since we broke up I have been dating other girls and just sent me some messages wondering how I could move on so quick and how it hurts and was my "replacing" her a way of getting back at her?I told her that it was her actions that put me where I am now. So "You keep calling me on the telephone" and "guess your hungry for some more well thats too bad" is perfect for my situation.

    I always thought this song was somewhat autobiographical for Yoakam as it was release after his relationship with Sharon Stone had ended. She had said afterward that was "as boring as dirt". He got the last word.

    I think Yoakam is pretty clear about what’s on his mind here. For me, the song carries such a time and place feeling…college…spring break 1993 a dismal foggy morning driving back to campus on US 331 before my brethren so I could finish a key class project on time. The feelings of independence and loneliness colliding…

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.
