It hurts me when you cry
When you feel the love is gone
Don't give up on us
When you got so much to believe in
And I beg you please stay
Strangers in the night
A flame that never dies
In a world of lonely faces
You need someone to survive
A heart like yours
Should never live alone

[Chorus:]
Let me be your bodyguard
I can be useful to you
We can just get excited
Stop before we go too far
Let me be your bodyguard
Living in my protection
We can just get ignited
Lost inside
It's only you and me

There's things you shouldn't do
You lose your self control
Should the eyes of a perfect stranger
Take you down to a new sensation
Just turn back to me
Don't wait till its gone
Don't go where you don't belong
In this world of pain and sorrow
Every wish is your command
A heart like yours
Should always find a home

I know the signs and I'm telling you
You're living on borrowed time
But a heart needs love
Like a flower needs rain
Like I'm making you mine

Let me be your bodyguard
I can be useful to you
We can just get excited
Stop before we go too far, my love, my life
Let me be your bodyguard
Living in my protection
We can just get ignited
What we had never known all our lives
I pray its not too late
I would die by your side my love
I'm the life that you save
In this world of pain and sorrow
Every wish is your command
A heart like yours should never live alone

I used to dream of a special one
And now I feel it coming true
But I could'nt let go, I'm a jealous guy
What you're putting me through
I'm begging you

Let me be your bodyguard
I can be useful to you
We can just get excited
Stop before we go too far my love, my life
Let me be your bodyguard
Living in my protection
We can just get ignited
Stop before we go too far

Stop before we go too far my love, my life
Stop before we go too far my love, my life

Let me be your bodyguard
I can be useful to you
We can just get excited
Stop before we go too far my love, my life
Let me be your bodyguard
Living in my protection
We can just get ignited
Stop before we go too far, my love, my life

Let me be your bodyguard
I can be useful to you
We can just get excited
Stop before we go too far

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.

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”

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.

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.
