No more waiting on them
As you rise inside new rooms
It's official you've gone
You can live for no one else
Man the guilt must be huge
As there's no gain in failure
You succeed at being mine
Yeah, old friend, see you there
I will be proud from afar
I can paint a picture
In a moment
Of memories
And there aren't many left
I am extradited, uninvited
It's just another saturday.

Take a step to freedom
You and her against this cruel world
Take a breath of shelter and exhale
Trust and allegiance
Liberate yourself from hell
It's just another saturday
Just another saturday.

    good question adrenalinegrl. i like the name though, May 16 is the birthday actually. This was my first lagwagon song, obviously the title caught my eye.

    BUT, What does this song mean ?

    I think it's about breaking out and becoming your own person. i guess this is to someone who's lived off of someone else or in his shadow. what does everyone else think?

    i'd like to think that a most all good punk bands come up with great titles to songs. From just the title you can tell what a song is about, well you can make an inference at least.

    i think it's pretty obivious that sic n twisted knows just nothing about this kind of music.

    Totally awesome song. To me it sorta sounds like either moving away from your parents, or getting kicked out. The entire song talks about the struggles with your parents.
    "No more waiting on them(Parents)...as you rise inside new rooms(New home)" Well, thats what it sounds like to me. The last part helps...."I am extradited, uninvited" Its a totally awesome song and i'm probably just over-analyzing.

    I'm most likley way off, but just listen... A teenage boy has gotten a girl pregnant and the parents have kicked them out and shunned them (you and her loathing this cruel world) and now they have no where to live... It's just another Saturday beceause I guess this happens alot in todays society.

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”

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/

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America.
