Gotta get me some
Gotta get me instant gratification.
Gimme new kicks,
Won't you show me new tricks
Without the ramifications.

Give it a try, don't be shy.
Well you know you might like it.
Never been to keen a timekeeper
But I'm a pure new pleasure seeker.

All the way from Venus.
Invading from Mars.
Don't let that come between us.
It's written in the stars.

Save me from fading afraid.
The tears of a fool on parade.
Quietly turn into stone.
Make me flesh and bone.

Well come on, oh.
You know that you want it now
Well come on, yeah.
You know that you want it and how.

Stimulation in body and cell.
For the good and misguided.
Desperation I'm under your spell.
Misunderstood and derided.

Speculation they kiss and they tell.
Misjudged and misquoted.
Fell into the abyss
I must have wanted this.

Another myth exploded.
Take a weight off your mind.
Trust the voice of experience.
I'll tell you little white lies.
Viva indifference.

Stoke up the fire
I'm all you require.
They won't set you alight.
Come and live your desire.

Come make me whole.
Body and soul, come make me whole
Yeah.

Well come on, oh, oh.
You know that you want it now.
Well come on, oh.
You know that you want it and how.
Well come yeah
You know that you want it now.
Well come yeah
You know that you want it now.

Gimme new kicks
I wanna go deeper
Never been to keen a timekeeper
Show me new tricks
You can get me on the beeper
I'm a pure new pleasure seeker.

Gimme new kicks
I wanna go deeper
Never been to keen a timekeeper
Show me new tricks
You can get me on the beeper
I'm a pure new pleasure seeker.

Be crime against passion
Not to itch that itch
Oh don't ask how it happened
This is it
All we have ever wanted
All we will ever need
Nothing can take his plan
It's written all over your face
Yeah
You know that you want it now
Come on
Oh ah you know that you want it how.
Come on
Yeah you know that you want it now.
Come on
Oh ah you know that you want it how.

Gimme new kicks
I wanna go deeper
Never been to keen a timekeeper
Show me new tricks
You can get me on the beeper
I'm a pure new pleasure seeker.

Come make me whole
Body and soul

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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”

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.
