If you hear me, baby, blink!
Do you even have the capability left to think?
There seems to be a missing link
Everybody's had a chance to see how far I can sink

As I try to call you back
As I try to call you back from the brink
If you hear me, baby, blink!

You're just so uptight
I don't suppose you have the energy to put up a fight
You just might implode before I get a chance at cracking the code
Take a good look around
Milk and honey's getting thin on the ground
If you hear me then make a sound

If you hear me, baby, blink!
As I try to call you back
As I try to call you back from the brink

If you hear me, baby, blink!
As I try to call you back
As I try to call you back from the brink

There will be no recompense when I'm screaming in the face of your silence
Still I draw a blank
Can't go down any further than I've already sank
If you're not there at all
Someone tell me why I'm talking to the wall
Do you hear me call?

If you continue to ignore these reasonable demands
I'll be drawing up a new plan
The future is in your hands
Isn't it a crying shame your little game of hide and seek
Became so tiresome to me sometime last week?
The future is bleak

If you hear me, baby, blink!
As I try to call you back
As I try to call you back from the brink
If you hear me, baby, blink!
As I try to call you back

The lights are off
I know you're home
I burn your letters begging me to leave you alone
Keep your privacy
Your inner thoughts mean nothing to me
If you are waiting for me to take on my fair share of the blame
Honey your efforts are in vain
If you hear me call my name

If you hear me, baby, blink!
(If you hear me call your name)
As I try to call you back
As I try to call you back from the brink [repeat]

If you hear me, baby, blink!
As I try to call you back
As I try to call you back from the brink

Anybody, is there anybody in there?
Is there anybody, anybody in there?
Anybody, is there anybody in there?
Is there anybody?

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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.

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/

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.
