I was born by the river
So I know where the river runs dry
I couldn't last forever

Accused just for living
But I know that the living was right
I couldn't last forever
Look at me making movies
Making living like I've never lived before

And the people wanting out of the river
Like a poor boy really should

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What you do for me I'll do for you, Yeah

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What is blue for me, is blue for you

There's a man who I know
You know he's got a fist full of dirty dollars
And I know they won't last forever
Does he really know what people are saying
Always feeling sure what he is there saying
But the other's disappear he was alone

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What you do for me I'll do for you

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What is blue for me, is blue for you

I go back to the river
Cause I know where the river runs dry
I couldn't last forever
Take the night making movies
Like a villain never ever seen the night of day
Don't you know that I can't last forever

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What you do for me I'll do for you

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What is blue for me, is blue for you

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What is blue for me, is kind of blue for you, Yeah

Hello I'm going down
You know I don't want to wear no pretty crown
Help people I'm going down

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
