She's the top, she's got the world on a string
She makes me boogie, makes me do anything, yeah, yeah
Hey now, touch the sky
You've got a certain kind of look in your eyes

Well, she's a miracle, she's all that I need
Like the water and the air that I breathe, yeah, yeah
Hey now, reach the sky
There's a certain kind of look in your smile

And I know what love can do
Yes, I know what hearts can do

The big love is taking the wheel
The big love goes head over heels
The big lust, bring it into the small world
The bigger, the better

Big love, waiting to catch the big one
Head over heels, the big one
Bring it into the small world
I'm building the big, big love
I'm building the big, big love

It's kinda strange, a bit mysterious
I gotta take it oh so so serious
Hey now, touch the sky
You've got a certain kind of look in your eyes

It used to be so hard so lonely at night
Well, she's my baby and I'm feeling alright
Hey now, move the sky
There's a certain kind of look in that smile

When I'm making love with her
When I'm making love to her, yeah

The big love is taking the wheel
The big love goes head over heels
The big lust, bring it into the small world
The bigger, the better

Big love, waiting to catch the big one
Head over heels, the big one
Bring it into the small world
I'm building the big, big love, yeah
I'm building the big, big love

It has to be a big thing
It's bringing me to my knees
Has to be a big thing, big thing
You know what I'm saying

The big love is taking the wheel
The big love goes head over heels
The big lust, bring it into the small world
The bigger, the better

Big love, waiting to catch the big one
Head over heels, the big one
Bring it into the small world
I'm building the big, big love
You know, I'm building the big, big love

Big love, building the big love
Big love, big love, big love
Big love, big love, big love

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.

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.
