A seed become a flower, a cocoon becomes a butterfly winter becomes spring
time, and love becomes a child the clouds become the rain the sad becomes the
pain inside cryin' becomes a game, yeah, yeah, and smoke becomes the flame, Im
a father to my son, yeah, Im a son to my father you cannot dismiss I'm living
proof of metamorphosis

Times are changin' minds are re-arrangin it doesn't matter if your black
Buddhist or asian we all possess the power, concrete like a tower so delicate
seed becomes a flower!
Times are changin' minds are re-arrangin it doesn't matter if your black
Buddhist or asian we all possess the power, concrete like a tower so delicate
seed becomes a flower!

A boy becomes a man, a song becomes a memory of a time in your life, a river
becomes an ocean, and life becomes undone. Feelings become emotion, a marriage
becomes a devotion for the rest of your life, the boredom becomes the same, and
guilt turns into pain..Im a father to my son, yeah, I'm a son to my father you
cannot dismiss I'm living proof of metamorphosis

Times are changin' minds are re-arrangin it doesn't matter if your black
Buddhist or asian we all possess the power, concrete like a tower so delicate
seed becomes a flower!
Times are changin' minds are re-arrangin it doesn't matter if your black
Buddhist or asian we all possess the power, concrete like a tower so delicate
seed becomes a flower!

Im a father to my son, yeah, Im a son to my father you cannot dismiss I'm
living proof of metamorphosis

Times are changin' minds are re-arrangin it doesn't matter if your black
Buddhist or asian we all possess the power, concrete like a tower so delicate
seed becomes a flower!
Times are changin' minds are re-arrangin it doesn't matter if your black
Buddhist or asian we all possess the power, concrete like a tower so delicate
seed becomes a flower!

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
