Stop searching, sliding alone
I know you’re breathing on your own
Star patterns, burned in your side
With ice melting, you’ll break in tonight

No way, there’s no way!
You’ll ever see what slipped through your fingers
No chance, there’s no chance!
I guess I'm tired, making up your mind for you
So tired of making it seem real for you
So tired, wishing I could change for you

You could be the perfect imposter
Try to pass it off real
You can take yourself anywhere you like
But you’ll always be there
You can’t escape what you carry in yourself
Try hard, but it's just a show
Every time you conspire to fool yourself
You’ll live but will you have a smile

Oh no!
You’re in the light again
Too late!
You’re not ready for yourself
Alright!
You're on the stage again
Too bad
Your mask isn’t fully cured

Oh no!
You’re in the light again
Too late!
You’re not ready for yourself
Alright!
You're on the stage again
Too bad
Your mask isn’t fully cured

Oh no!
(I’m not too sure but you know I want you, I know...)
You’re in the light again
Too late!
(I need to find my sanity for more ...)
You’re not ready for yourself
Alright!
(I’m not too sure but you know I want you, I know...)
You're on the stage again
Too bad
(I need to find ...)
Your mask isn’t fully cured

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

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.
