We danced on the ceiling
We danced on the wall
It gave me the feeling
That I wasn't there at all
We danced on the moonlight
We danced on the stars
Too early a day late
Came after the miles

[Chorus]
Ooh, I don't want to let it end
I don't want to say goodbye
I don't want to let the only thing we ever had expire
Won't you take me through the night
To that far and distant light
Won't you take me back to paradise again

You took me to heaven
You took me from hell
We danced on the ceiling
Together we fell

[Chorus]

We danced on the ceiling
we danced on the wall
It gave me the feeling
That I wasn't there at all
You took me from heaven
Oh, you took me from hell
We danced on the ceiling
Together we fell

[Chorus]

'Cause we danced on the ceiling
And we danced on the wall
It gave me the feeling

Ooh, I don't want to let it end
I don't want to say goodbye
I don't want to let the only thing we ever had expire

Ooh, I don't want to let it end
I don't want to say goodbye
I don't want to let the only thing we ever had expire

Ooh, I don't want to let it end
I don't want to say goodbye
I don't want to let the only thing we ever had expire

Ooh, I don't want to let it end
I don't want to say goodbye
I don't want to let the only thing we ever had expire

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.

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.

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/

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
