Some friends you lose
Some friends you win
Time will heal the pain
I would give up everything
To hold you once again

Sorry doesn't make it right
And tears are not enough
I can't take these lonely nights
And shadows from this love

We are daytime friends
And night-time fools
Oh nobody takes the place of you
Oh a woman is a man's best friend
Oh in this world, baby

We are daytime friends
And night-time fools
Oh baby, breakin' up is hard to do
I have golden days
And restless lonely nights
With you, darlin' (baby)

Oh heaven knows where heaven is
How does this love survive
Try a little tenderness
To keep this love alive

Nights begin to drive me down
It's waiting in my heart
Oh love it makes the world go round
But we're so far apart

We are daytime friends
And night-time fools
Oh nobody takes the place of you
Oh a woman is a man's best friend
Oh in this world, baby

We are daytime friends
And night-time fools
Oh baby, breakin' up is hard to do
I have golden days
And restless lonely nights
With you, darlin' (baby)

I'm missin' your sweet tender kiss
I'm missin' you tonight, babe
All I want's your sweet caress
There's nothing left to hide, baby

We are daytime friends
And night-time fools
Oh baby, breakin' up is hard to do
I have golden days
And restless lonely nights
With you, darlin' (baby)

We are daytime friends
And night-time fools
Oh nobody takes the place of you
Oh a woman is a man's best friend
Oh in this world, baby

We are daytime friends
And night-time fools
Oh baby, breakin' up is hard to do
I have golden days
And restless lonely nights
With you, darlin' (baby)

He certainly did earn that reputation.

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
