Looking good, stepping out, looking for romance
Crazy arms, crazy legs, save me the last dance
Hold me tight, make me warm, give me shelter
Treat me right, in from the storm, helter skelter
You know the way, the game is tough
Need some motivation, to help you get it up

Cause it's only, love for sale,
Heart of gold and hard as nails
I can't believe it's legal,
To send it through the mail
Only love for sale

Call me up, call me back, call me what you want to
Shoot your shot, shoot the moon, nothing that you can't do
All for me, one for all, shoulder to shoulder
Here and gone, sure like to ball, rock n' roller
You know the way, stuff goes around,
You need a half nelson, to help you get it down

Cause it's only, love for sale,
Heart of gold and hard as nails
I can't believe it's legal,
To send it through the mail
Only love for sale

Rip it up, rip it out, Shake your money maker
Feels so good, in and out, real earth shaker
Get up close, stroke your bones, get a grip babe
Take a trip, take me home, feel the earth shift babe
You know the way, so get it right
You don't need an airplane, to get you through the night

Cause it's only, love for sale,
Heart of gold and hard as nails
I can't believe it's legal,
To send it through the mail
Only love for sale

    This song is about prostitutes (official words of Lemmy when i saw them play at wembley arena) and i also think its partly about viagra too and maybe the whole sex trade

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
