Don't think you got me girl,
Don't think you can tame me and change me,
Don't think that it's all because of you,
Just because I don't run around,
Just because we're forever together,
Don't you think of a four letter word to use

So what if I just don't want anybody else but you,
So what if you're all that I ever really want to do,
I know what you're thinkin' but that doesn't make it true

Believe me baby!

I'm not in love,
No not at all,
What makes you think,
You made me fall,
I slip but no I'm not in love

What if I just can't sleep at night,
I see your face in the starry skies,
So high above,
But, girl I'm not in love

Don't think you got it made,
Don't think it's to easy to keep me,
Never know it could all just fade away

So what if I just don't want anybody else but you,
So what if you're all I really want to do,
I know what you're thinkin' but that doesn't make it true

Believe me baby!

I'm not in love,
No not at all,
What makes you think,
You made me fall, I slip but no I'm not in love

What if I just can't sleep at night,
I see your face in the starry skies,
So high above,
But, girl I'm not in love

So if my heart just skips a beat,
What if I lose a little sleep

Believe me

I'm not in love,
No not at all,
What makes you think,
You made me fall, I slip but no I'm not in love

What if I just can't sleep at night,
I see your face in the starry skies,
The way you feel,
It makes it right,
I'm not in love

I'm not in love,
No not at all,
What makes you think,
You made me fall, I slip but no I'm not in love

What if I just can't sleep at night,
I see your face in the starry skies,
The way you feel,
It makes it right,
I'm not in love

    really good song -- my fave off their US release -- about a guy not willing to admit he's either in love or falling in love with this girl. He says that, sure, he thinks about her all the time and spends all his time with her, but he's in denial about loving her.

    Yep, denial, denial. ;) I know exactly how this feels, the way the song describes it.. that's how it was for every guy I ever liked, until the guy that made me feel like denial was pointless. I couldn't lie to myself anymore.

    Anyway, I think this song is funny.. hehe. He's like 'Nah.. I'm not in love. So what if I can't sleep, see your face in the night sky, I only want to be with you, etc. Doesn't mean anything.' Suuure. ;) Yep, I know this feeling all too well.

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.

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”

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
