Can you understand me
Baby don't you hand me a line
Although it doesn't matter
You and me got plenty of time

There's nobody in the future
So baby let me hand you my love
Oh, there's no step for you to dance to
So slip your hand inside of my glove

Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me

I don't want no damage
But how am I gonna manage with you
You hold the percentage
But I'm the fool payin' the dues

I'm just around the corner
If you got a minute to spare
I'll be waitin' for ya'
If you ever want to be there

Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me

Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me

    I'll bite.

    Lyrics aren't that good, but the music is.

    The music is beautiful and the lyrics are so sweet and romantic. Now what is the deal with the MEMBERS? They married and divorced each other. W:OW

    This isn't an interpretation, but a story about where this song takes me.

    I was 10 when Hold Me was released as a single in the US. So the literal meaning was completely lost on me at the time. But in the summer of 1982 my family was on a road trip cross-country from Virginia to Colorado. And EVERY radio station from Richmond to Denver had "Hold Me" in heavy rotation. So I heard the song about a hundred times in the four-day drive out and subsequent four-day drive home a week later.

    Therefore, the imagery my brain calls up from the archives every time I hear this song is the scenery along I-64 and I-70, and the four of us crammed into the cab of a blue and silver 1979 GMC Sierra pickup.

    I was watching an old episode of "Knight Rider" the other night and I noticed they slipped this song into the show... performed by a cover artist no less!

    Oh gosh I love this song! I remember the video...i thought the horse was cool when i was younger. Never really understood the video, but the song is pretty self-explanitory.

    Ha ha, nobody hears the snap of the whip and the yelp in each chorus? Adds an extra dimension to their relationship.

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.

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/

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
