I'll tell you what I've done
I'll tell you what I'll do
Been driving all night
Just to get close to you

Baby babe, I'm moving so fast
You'd better come on
The moon is alright
The freeway's heading south

My heart is going boom
There's a strange taste in my mouth
Baby babe, I'm moving real fast
So try to hold on
Try to hold on

Sleeping in my car, I will undress you
Sleeping in my car, I will caress you
Staying in the backseat of my car, making out

So come out tonight
I'll take you for a ride
This steamy ol' wagon
The radio is getting wild
Baby babe, we're moving so fast
I try to hang on
Oh, I try to hang on

Sleeping in my car, I will undress you
Sleeping in my car, I will caress you
Staying in the backseat of my car making love, oh yeah
Sleeping in my car, I will possess you
Sleeping in my car, certainly bless you
Laying in the backseat of my car, making out

The night is so pretty and so young
The night is so pretty and so young
So very young

Sleeping in my car, I will undress you
Sleeping in my car, I will caress you
Staying in the backseat of my car making love, to you
Sleeping in my car, I will possess you
Sleeping in my car, certainly bless you
Laying in the backseat of my car, making out, making out

Sleeping in my car, I will undress you
Sleeping in my car
The night is so pretty and so young, yeah

    This is another great song by Roxette, one of my favourites. I love to sing along to this lol

    Yeah, i think this song is talking about some sort of antics in the car lol so the "strange taste in my mouth" may be what your thinking

    Soul Haemorrage, Sorry to disappoint you, but Marie Fredriksson is not a lesbian. She is married with children. Cheers.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
