4 amTerry turns he just cannot sleep from the
ceaseless noise out inthe streetIt's too hot, and
it's too late, there's nothing he can do butwaitTerry says I'm going nowhere fastNobody hears
there's no-one thereJulie wakes to find herself
aloneWhich comes as no surprise, no surprise, no surprise,
to be onher ownIt's four in the morningWhy don't you call me?I'm sorry I hurt youI still want you backIt's four in the morningJulie wakes to find herself aloneWhich comes as no
surprise, no surprise, no surprise, to be onher ownIt's four in the morningWhy don't you call
me?I'm sorry I hurt youI still want you backIt's four in the morningWhy don't you
call me?I'm sorry I hurt youI still want you
backIt's four in the morningWaiting
I'm so tired of waitingIt's four in the
morningWhy don't you call me?I'm sorry I
hurt youI still want you backI know what
you're thinkingYou're alone nowI'm
sorry I hurt youI still want you backIt's
four in the morningWhy don't you call me?I'm sorry I hurt youI still want you back

    I can't help noticing the names of the protagonists, which are the same as in Waterloo Sunset.

    A simple tale this, works pretty well.

    My Interpretation

    I believe the song is meant to be a continuation of the characters from Waterloo Sunset.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.
