Answers the question before it's asked
You can see Johnny but he's not here
Nobody saw Johnny disappear
Mother says his mama's too easy

Letting him come and go as he pleases
Walls and windows won't do it
Lock the door
Johnny goes right through it

It's so hard to get his attention
When he's out there in another dimension
Johnny I want to follow you outside
I want to feel that high

It's so hard to get his attention
When he's out there in another dimension
Johnny, I want to follow you outside
I want to feel that high

Johnny, you, I can pretend with
You're only one I can really bend with
Take me 'cross the river Styx
Fill my eyes with fire tricks

Anything you got up your sleeve
Anything you tell me, Johnny, I'll believe
It's so hard to get your attention
When you're out there in another dimension

Johnny, I want to follow you outside
I want to feel that high

    Johnny Moon is a stoner whom the singer is intrigued with. she just wants to hang out, and get high with him and maybe she has a little crush on him too but who knows

    I think that's about a paranoid girl that have a deep friendship with a smart ghost/imaginary friend,or a girl in love with a problematic guy

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.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.
Album art
When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
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.
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.
