My father on the gangway
Running for luck,
Sing a song, one measure,
This thing.
They don’t like you, why run around?
All I love is falling too.
Ever since the groovy today
He will never leave too loud too.
All alone, don’t freeze,
Don’t turn the light on, leave me alone.
All alone, don’t freeze,
Don’t turn the light on, leave me alone.

Every thirst ever
Makes you really frown.
Stress all, one measure,
This thing.
They don’t like you, what I love,
All I love is wasn’t you.
Ever since the groovy today,
Heaven’s in the sunshine today.
If you really want me, if you really need me,
Don’t turn the light on, leave me alone.
If you really want me, if you really need me,
Don’t turn the light on, leave me alone.

They don’t like you, what I love,
All I love’s isn’t you.
Ever since the groovy today,
Heaven is shining you see.
If you really want me, if you really need me,
Don’t turn the light on, leave me alone.
If you really want me, if you really need me,
Don’t turn the light on, leave me alone,
Alone.

    Cracking track.. to me it says..

    Sometimes i need a drink. Things can look slightly better in the dark sometimes, if you know what i mean.. kind of, ignorance is bliss, so don't dig. *The less said, the better.

    That is, if you "you really want me". :)

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/

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.
