Schreckensturm in finstrer Nacht gräulich = wilde Jagt
Lebend im Tode, in ewigen Schlacht, (und den) Stahl am Blut gelabt.
Gehüllt in Häute von Wolf und Bär und grausges Kriegsgewand,
Geschwinde eilt voraus die Mär weithin durch das Land.

Bleicher Vollmond, Totenrunen, ein Krieger hängt in einem Baum,
Zauber bringt ihn wieder ins Leben (als) Bestie aus einem Schreckenstraum.
Wotans Heer heißt ihn willkommen, totenfahl und mitleidlos,
Nicht ein Feind soll widerstehen, wird geführt der letzte Stoß!

Dumpf beginnt der Grund zu beben, Hufschlag aus der Ferne naht,
Kriegerschritte, schwer und wuchtig, geben dazu grimmen Takt.
Wolfesklauen, Bärentazten, vorwärtseilend auf der Jagd,
Weiße Fänge blitzen kalt und röten sich, bevor es tagt.

Und der Stahl sing klar und hell seine Weis vom Schlachtentod,
Von dem Kriege immerdar und vom Grund, der färbt sich rot.
Oskorei auf wilder Jagd, Wotans Heer, stürmt übers Land,
Unaufhaltsam, unverzagt = Der Stahl harrt auch in meiner Hand!

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."

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.

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Trouble Breathing
Alkaline Trio
While the obvious connections with suicide or alcoholism could be drawn easily, more subtly this song could be about someone who views the world through a negative lens constantly and how as much as the writer tries to show the beauty in the world, this person refuses to see it. It's one or another between the rope and the bottle. There is no good option for this person. They can't see it. Skiba sings it in a kind of exasperated way like He's tired of hearing this negative view constantly and just allowing that person to continue feeling the way they feel knowing he can't do anything about it. You can hear it when he says maybe you're a vampire.
