Royal Canadian blended
The spicy aroma had mended me
Matured for years and imported
Into my glass you poured it

And you're the only reason
That I remain unfrozen
Suppose it stands to reason
That you would turn on me

You're so solid
You're so solid
It burns inside of me
'Cause you're so solid
It burns inside of me

And Wild Turkey's been chosen
It's caramel nose can smell me
Arbourler/Jameson, I love you
The single malts came burning

And you're the only reason
That I remain unfrozen
Suppose it stands to reason
That you would turn on me

You're so solid
You're so solid
It burns inside of me
'Cause you're so solid
It burns inside of me

Royal Canadian blended
The spicy aroma had mended me

And you're the only reason
That I remain unfrozen
Suppose it stands to reason
That you would turn on me

You're so solid
You're so solid
It burns inside of me
'Cause you're so solid
It burns inside of me

    I think this song is about alcoholism, how for whatever reason his addiction has acted as something that has stopped him from committing suicide. "And you're the only reason, That I remain unfrozen" I think it can be asumed that the after effects of large alcohol consumption has not helped him at all, but he is still hooked to it - "Suppose it stands to reason That you would turn on me." I guess you can say that there is a split line as to what this line could be, "You're so solid." I think that when he says, 'You're so solid' he's talking about an empty bottle, his moment of joy of drinking has stopped, the bottle is empty, no liquid remains but the soild. But it could also mean that it's hard, like a hard obstalce to overcome.

    I love muse.

    I cant belive no ones said nething bout sober. U should all b ashamed!!!

    This is probs my fave Muse song cos it's the first 1 i eva heard. Methinks its about someone with a drinking problem and they're showing their love for the sweet stuff. Least that wot i think.

    its clearly abot matts hate of turkeys. his aunt bessie used to force him to eat turkey every xmas. so he covered it in alchole to cover the taste. the "Royal Canadian blended The spicy aroma had mended me" refers to his dad who was a mountie and used to bring back cheap whiskey for him from canada.

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
