No clock beside my bed, don't try to wake me
No phone upon my wall, who's going to call?
No knock upon my door, no news to shake me
Nights like the one before, I can't take no more

Beaujolais goes straight to my head
Beaujolais puts me to shame and I don't know
Why I'm in this place or how I came
Beaujolais and I go crazy, Beaujolais, I can't explain
But it helps me to forget the past and ease the pain

One race that I can't win with an alter ego
One chance to sink or swim, what am I to do?
One tail that I can't shake, wherever I go, he go
One circuit I can't break, it's a catch twenty two

Beaujolais goes straight to my head
Beaujolais, the one to blame and I don't know
Why I'm in this place or how I came
Beaujolais will be my ruin, Beaujolais, I can't complain
'Cause it helps me to forget the past and ease the pain

Beaujolais, Beaujolais, Beaujolais goes straight to my head
Beaujolais puts me to shame and I don't know
Why I'm in this place or how I came
Beaujolais and I go crazy, Beaujolais, I can't explain
But it helps me to forget the past and ease the pain

Beaujolais goes straight to my head
Beaujolais, the one to blame and I don't know
Why I'm in this place or how I came
Beaujolais will be my ruin, Beaujolais, I can't complain
'Cause it helps me to forget the past and ease the pain

Beaujolais, Beaujolais, Beaujolais
Beaujolais, Beaujolais, Beaujolais
Beaujolais, Beaujolais, Beaujolais
Beaujolais, Beaujolais, Beaujolais

    Just a thought, but could this be semi-representative of those celebrities that are recognized by character only rather than by their real personality?

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.
