Constantly girl you're on my mind
Girl, I think about you all of the time
And even though words are hard to say
Girl I miss you, never thought I'd feel this way

If you keep on taking
My heart you'll be breaking
So why do you do this to me?
You know how I'm feeling
It's you I believe in
Baby can't you see that I need you?

You know that it's true
Every time I see your face I miss you lady
You know that it's you
I wanna let you know you're driving me crazy
I'd do anything to help you to see
I don't think you understand what you're doing to me
You know that it's true
Every now and then I wanna call you lately
You know that it's you
I send a prayer that you'll come back to me lady
Oh yeah
Life ain't anything alone, can't you see?
You're an angel in my eyes
Everyday, you're closer to me

Nobody's there when I call your name
And nights are cold girl without your flame
Nights are cold girl without your flame
But if I could girl I'd make you see
(I'd make you see, yeah)
That I'm sorry, that I need you here with me

If you keep on taking
My heart you'll be breaking
So why do you do this to me?
You know how I'm feeling
It's you I believe in
Baby can't you see that I need you?

You know that it's true
Every time I see your face I miss you lady
You know that it's you
I wanna let you know you're driving me crazy
I'd do anything to help you to see
I don't think you understand what you're doing to me
You know that it's true
Every now and then I wanna call you lately
You know that it's you
I send a prayer that you'll come back to me lady
Oh yeah
Life ain't anything alone, can't you see?
You're an angel in my eyes
Everyday, you're closer to me

Everyday reminisce about the past
Of a love that we thought would last
How we used to be when it was you and me
How did it all disappear so fast
There are days that I can't forget
There are things that I now regret
I was there for you when you were there for me
And I was thinkin' we were set
Every night when I'm laying in my bed
I hear your voice going round in my head
Think of all the things I could have done and
All those things I could have said
I really will make it up to you
I know now what I've got to do
It took time but now I've realised how much I'm missing you

If you keep on taking
My heart you'll be breaking
So why do you do this to me?
You know how I'm feeling
It's you I believe in
Baby can't you see that I need you?

You know that it's true
Every time I see your face I miss you lady
You know that it's you
I wanna let you know you're driving me crazy
I'd do anything to help you to see
I don't think you understand what you're doing to me
You know that it's true
Every now and then I wanna call you lately
You know that it's you
I send a prayer that you'll come back to me lady
Oh yeah
Life ain't anything alone, can't you see?
You're an angel in my eyes
Everyday, you're closer to me

You know that it's true
Every time I see your face I miss you lady
You know that it's you
I wanna let you know you're driving me crazy
I'd do anything to help you to see
I don't think you understand what you're doing to me
You know that it's true
Every now and then I wanna call you lately
You know that it's you
I send a prayer that you'll come back to me lady
Oh yeah
Life ain't anything alone, can't you see?
You're an angel in my eyes
Everyday, you're closer to me

    I remember pretty clearly watching this video on tv on 2001 while studying late at night. It's pretty nice and touching for a 'boy band', at least it's how I remember feeling back then. It brings me nice memories of my friends' and I special bound...Funny how this was one of the lasts' Five songs and it's probably one of the saddest, about a relationship that is ending unavoidably. Makes me cry every time I hear it, remembering those happy and young years that won't ever come back and how we drifted apart, like the lyrics say, how I would do anything to make it different...

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”

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
