Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh

All the things you said to me today
Changed my perspective in every way
These things count to mean so much to me
Into my faith you and your baby

It's out there, it's out there
It's out there, if you want me I'll be here
It's out there, it's out there
It's out there, if you want me I'll be here

I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
And there's no other place that I'd lay down my face
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you

It's out there, it's out there
It's out there, if you want me I'll be here
It's out there, it's out there
It's out there, if you want me I'll be here

I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
And there's no other place that I'd lay down my face
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you

Dreaming my dreams with you
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
And there's no other place that I'd lay down my face
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you

Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh

    In this song it sounds like the guy is getting ready to leave her. She's trying a little to act like she's strong by saying you can go and leave me, but i'm probably still going to be in the same place loving you. She's dreaming about them and in her mind what she wanted the realationship to be. It's comes off as a love song, but i think this song is a little sad. The whole cd is basically about breaking up and feeling empty.

    One of the greatest waltzes ever written. Its is the surrender that comes through in the melancholy music... the floating, detached way in which one gives themselves completely to the other.

    she's basically saying that their love is "out there" and that she'll always be there for him. it's clearly a love song... and one of the best ones ever! <3

    this song means that she is so in love with this person that she wants to be there for this person at all times and she wants to lay with him and sleep and dream with him.

    dolores wrote this song at christmas time for her husband don, so it's pretty safe to say that it's about how much she loves him, and how all the dreams she might have had about her future husband have come true, and now she is living them out with him. it's her way of saying that she's happy with him. however, it can be perceived as a sad song, more because of the melody than of the lyrics because the melody is quite melancholic. but the lyrics can be interpreted as sad as well (even though i know they're not, i still do - due to the memories the song holds for me) if you think about it, the lines "it's out there, if you want me, i'll be there" could be someone saying that even though this other person doesn't want them right now, they'll still be there if they ever change their mind. also "i'll be dreaming my dreams with you" seems to imply that that's all they'll be doing with them - they won't be living with eachother, the only way they can be together is in this person's dreams. because of this you could easily think, or feel that the song is about losing someone, but not feeling bad feelings for them, more wishing them on their way or letting them know that you accept it and that you'll always be there. that's certainly what i think, and i think it's a beautiful song. a beautiful album really.

    i agree with ya enero. No need to argue is definitely one of the best albums I've ever heard. In fact...if it weren't for McLachlan's fumbling towards ecstacy, this one could be No 1. This song in particular is so beautiful.

    i think this song is about someone leaving you, and how you'll remember them in your dreams

    I'm not religious at all, but the line "Into my faith, you and your baby" makes me think of Mary and Jesus. I wonder if it's not a love song but a song to Mary, saying that she believes that God is "out there".

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.
Album art
Blue
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.
