Bye June
I'm going to the moon
It better be by June
'Cause I'm going to the moon
So June
You'd better make it soon
I hope you make it June
'Cause I'm going to the moon
Bye June
Bye June
I'm going to the moon
I hope you make it soon
'Cause I'm waiting on this moon
Bye June
I hope you make it too
I'm wishing you're there too
I hope you make it June
Bye bye June

    I feel this song is a ballad of hope and yearning for a goal. Perhaps leaving for a distant place or new home. Going to the moon is maybe a metaphor for a dark, mysterious destination. The main lyric and title suggests that you're leaving behind someone, something.

    To me this song is a kind of suicide note to a former lover. "I hope you make it soon" symbolises that they'll be together again in death. "I'm wishing you're there too" gives me Romeo & Juliet-vibes - what he really wanted was for her to die with him (or probably right before he leaves this world).

    Does this song only have an acoustic version?

    I'm thinking this song relates to the story that Billy wrote "Glass and the Machines of God".

    this song always reminds me of my aunt june who died somewhat recently. it makes me somewhat sad and then somewhat happy at the same time.

    the lyrics oddly fit.

    "Remember the good ole 1980's? When things were so uncomplicated? I wish I could go back there again And everything could be the same

    I've got a ticket to the moon I'll be leaving here any day soon Yeah, I've got a ticket to the moon But I'd rather see the sunrise in your eyes"

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.

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”

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.

“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
