NOW MORE THAN EVER YOU REALIZE

SO WHEN YOU SENSE A CHANGE
NOTHING FEELS THE SAME
ALL YOUR DREAMS ARE STRANGE,
LOVE COMES WALKIN' IN
SOME KIND OF ALIEN
WAITS FOR THE OPENING
THEN SIMPLY PULLS A STRING

ANOTHER WORLD, SOME OTHER TIME
YOU LAY YOUR SANITY ON THE LINE
FAMILIAR FACES FAMILIAR SIGHTS
REACH BACK REMEMBER WITH ALL
YOUR MIGHT
OHH THERE SHE STANDS IN A
SILKEN GOWN
SILVER LIGHTS SHINING DOWN

SO WHEN YOU SENSE A CHANGE
NOTHING FEELS THE SAME
ALL YOUR DREAMS ARE STRANGE,
LOVE COMES WALKIN' IN
SOME KIND OF ALIEN
WAITS FOR THE OPENING
THEN SIMPLY PULLS A STRING, LOVE
COMES WALKIN' IN

SOLO

SLEEP AND DREAM IS ALL I CRAVE
I TRAVEL FAR ACROSS THE MILKY WAY
TO MY MASTER I BECOME A SLAVE
TEL WE MEET AGAIN SOME OTHER DAY
WHERE SILENCE SPEAKS AS LOUD
AS WAR
AND THE EARTH RETURNS TO WHAT IT
WAS BEFORE

SO WHEN YOU SENSE A CHANGE
NOTHING FEELS THE SAME
ALL YOUR DREAMS ARE STRANGE,
LOVE COMES WALKIN' IN
SOME KIND OF ALIEN
WAITS FOR THE OPENING
THEN SIMPLY PULLS A STRING, LOVE
COMES WALKIN' IN

    Sounds like when your soul leaves the body upon death, what happens.Thats my take on it. I kept hearing this song every day 2 years after its release after a relative died, seemed almost like a communication, and it made sense.

    This song rocks \m/ another AWESOME ballad from the amazing Van Halen. Sammy Hagar really sings this well.

    Van Hagar is better the Van Roth.

    It's "Love Walks In" not "Love comes walking in." Even if it's from the Hagar Era, still a good song.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
