Goodnight

Well, it's after midnight and the skies are shining bright,
And a big fat moon is dancing on the sea, and I'm thinking oh my...
And that old man in the sky he's looking me right in the eye,
And he's wondering why, and he's saying "Little singer,
Why aren't you sleeping, why aren't you sleeping?"
Oh, the day is hanging heavy on my eyes, I guess the time,
Has come to say goodnight...

And may your dreams take you travelling all night long,
With an angel by your side when the wind blows strong,
Oh stay away from that city, that sad and lonely place,
I will lead you to the river, here's the door,
And the key is turning round,
Close the shutters, do not cry, there's a new moon in the sky,
Oh hold on to your love, until your time has come to say ... goodnight.

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.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
