You never close your eyes any more when I kiss your lips
And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You're tryin' hard not to show it (baby)
But baby, baby I know it

You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Whoa, that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Now its gone, gone, gone whoa

Now there's no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you
And girl, you're starting to criticize little things I do
It makes me just feel like crying (baby)
'Cause baby, something beautiful's dyin'

You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Whoa, that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Now its gone, gone, gone, whoa

Baby baby, I'd get down on my knees for you
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah
We had a love, a love, a love you don't find every day
So don't, don't, don't, don't, let it slip away
Baby, baby, baby, baby, I beg you please, please, please, please
I need your love, need your love, I need your love, I need your love
Yeah, bring it on back, oh bring it on back, bring it on back, oh bring it on back

Bring back that lovin' feelin', whoa that lovin' feelin'
Bring back that lovin' feelin'
'Cause it's gone, gone, gone
And I can't go on, whoa

Bring back that lovin' feelin', whoa that lovin' feelin'
Bring back that lovin' feelin'
'Cause it's

    This song is just phenomenal. Yes, it's old. Yes it's slow. And yes, it is a bit, well, girly. But that doesn't stop us! Since watching Top Gun, my mates and i have a long tradition of having a few drinks, putting on the Top Gun Soundtrack and this song gets a wokout. Look out Karaoke!

    Just a short interpretation. This thought just came across my mind... that maybe by leaving out the line 'bring back that loving feeling' audience would have still gotten the idea of getting or bringing smthg back, somehow. Even though they've been just told otherwise by the song name. Smthg they might have recently lost.

    From the opening line this song sets the tone for what is to come. About a man who believes the girl he loves no longer loves him.

    Now there's no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you. And now your're starting to criticize little things I do. It makes me just feel like crying, (baby). 'Cause baby, something in you is dying.

    That is so sad!

    If you didn't know it you would think this is two black guys singing.

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.

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.

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
