Welcome to the years 2000 minus 25, oh say can you smell her for the smoke
God's still up there laughin', so she's gotta be alive
Who says he can't take a dirty joke

Power isn't power does and power slips away, it's so easy to abuse
Who'd've thought them Arabs would've brought the USA just to give it to the Jews
Singing crime still don't pay just like it used to
And you know this time slips away 'til you die

Well I don't give a damn when I choose to, no it don't hurt so bad when you're high
Oh say, does the future of the homesick and the brave even matter anymore
There ain't no more reason for them boys to run away than there was to fight before
Would you tell me why the hell we'd try
To win back in a war what we lost in the last

Might just ain't as righteous as it used to be, before when your army's out of gas
Singing crime still don't pay...
Singing crime still don't pay...

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/

Punchline

Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

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.
