Hey lonely girl, what are you looking for
You lost your thrill, and you can't hide it
Knew it from the start
Your world could fall apart
Didn't wanna know,
So love just came and went the other way
Like the times we had before
You don't want them anymore

And think of the times we had before
Now my worlds turned upside down
Having the love to give and no-one seems to care

I won't give you up
I'll never give you up
Even when it hurts inside, baby
I won't give you up
I'll never live it down
Come back and stay

Hey lonely girl, yeah, come be in my picture, alone
Be my dark and heavy skies
Be my love and be my life

And think of the times we had before
Now my worlds turned upside down
Having the love to give and no-one seems to care

I won't give you up
I'll never give you up
Even when it hurts inside, baby
I won't give you up
I'll never live it down
Come back and stay

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And think of the times we had before
(now my world's turned upside down)

Now my worlds turned upside down
Having the love to give and no-one seems to care
Now, now, now

I won't give you up
I'll never give you up
Even when it hurts inside, baby
I won't give you up
I'll never live it down
Come back and stay

I won't give you up
I'll never give you up
Even when it hurts inside, baby
I won't give you up
I'll never live it down
Come back and stay
Yeah

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.
