Theres nothing else
That beats the feeling when I love again
When I mean to roll the dice again
Oh yeah
Uh huh
I love myself
When I am in to play the cards again
They're loosing faces
The dont understand
Oh no
Uh huh
Cuz this lucky ladies on my way
Just pass threw makes me wanna say
Hey (hey) Hey (hey)
You know what I need baby
Hey (hey) Hey (hey)
You know what I need baby
Hey (hey) Hey (hey)
You know what I need baby
You've got what I need
I show myself
The cards all line up
They look after me
This beach takes me where I want to be
Oh yeah
Uh huh
Another glass
I drink it down
Oh yeah I'm back again
This lucky lipstick kissed the dice again
Oh yeah
Uh huh
Cuz this lucky ladies on my way
Just pass threw makes me wanna say
Hey (hey) Hey (hey)
You know what I need baby
Hey (hey) Hey (hey)

    This is a really good song by the Travoltas. I think it's about getting into a new relationship where everything is peach keen. Oh and I screwed up the lyrics its : These lucky lips kissed the dice again (Sorry)! My favorite lines :

    Theres nothing else/ That beats the feeling when I love again

    Travoltas rock my world

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.

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.

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.
