You say you want some fun
You're not the only one
Not the only one

And you say you want to run
You're not the only one
Not the only one

You will never get over me
I'll never got under you
Whenever our voices speak
It's never our minds that meet

You say you want some
You're not the only one
Not the only one

And you, you say you've come undone
You're not the only one
Not the only one

You will never get over me
I'll never got under you
Whenever our voices speak
It's never our minds that meet

You'll never get over me

    My Interpretation

    This sounds quite like a couple that is polarized and about to separate ("Whenever our voices speak, it's never our minds that meet"). The repetitions of Morten's voice calling, "You'll never get over me", whilst Lauren Savoy sings, "I will get over you", almost sound like the guy (Morten's part) is trying to convince the girl to stay, whilst she defiantly proclaims that she can get over him. If anything, it's a song about a relationship that is breaking down, but one partner does not want the other to break it off.

    General Comment

    An ego struggle between two members of a couple about to split." Whenever our voices speak, it’s never our minds that meet") is possibly one of the best phrases in a song that reflects the misunderstanding of a couple who tries but has no options or tools to get it. Aha has always been able to reflect very well in his lyrics all the gray situations present in any love story. I love this sad song.

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.

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.

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.

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.
