You know your favourite old pair of shoes
The ones with the hole in the toe you won’t lose
Your favourite record that’s all scratched and used
But still you love to play when your feeling blue

That faded rose that’s all dried out
Those Bukowski poems we couldn’t live without
Your high school picture when you had wild hair
That stormy day on the beach that got us here

Oh, you better believe there’s just one thing you need
Can’t you see ...

It’s just me baby
It’s just me baby
If there’s just one thing that you should keep
In your book of dreams
It’s just me baby

Just like a shadow 10 feet tall
Standing right behind you should you fall
I’ll be the one to hold you up to walk
When this wicked world makes us want to crawl
And if your waves should ever break at sea
I’ll be there waiting, I’m that sandy beach
I’m the same old dog, scratching those same fleas
I’ll be by your side, you can count on me

It’s just me baby
It’s just me baby
If there’s just one thing that you should keep
In your book of dreams
It’s just me baby
It’s just me baby
What’s it gonna take to make you see
What’s it gonna take ‘til you believe in me

Oh, how my smile fades and my heart just breaks
Every time you go away

It’s just me baby
It’s just me baby
If there’s just one thing that you should keep
In your book of dreams
It’s just me baby
It’s just me baby
What’s it gonna take to make you see
What’s it gonna take ‘til you believe in me

And if someday some new memory comes along
Looking shiny new, feeling really strong
You can tell him that I’ll tell him
He can just move on
I’m a fighter - I’ve been fighting for you all night long
It’s just me baby

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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/

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.
