I saw a smile on her face reminds me
of the sun filled days that we’d waste
away
Dreamin’ of a world of love in
harmony
Well my dream’s comin’ true and I
wish you were here so you could see all
the smilin’ faces I’m smilin’ at you
Look how far we’ve come since the
spring roses fallin’ to the ground it don’t
mean a thing cuz true love flies free as a
dove
I keep hopin’ that the end will never
come...
I’ll keep on waitin’ right here for you
did we get further away or a little bit
closer still wastin’ away but my dream’s
not over there are so many steps left to
trace to see the smile on her face...
Such a pretty smile pretty smile pretty
smile
Why don’t you come just a little bit
closer you just seem so far away I try so
hard to keep on movin’ on but I’m
getting caught up thinking about the time
we shared just wastin’ away it seemed
like they’d never end...
Keep on movin’ on keep on dreamin’
It’ll come right back to you right back to
you
I saw a smile on her face reminds me
of the sun filled days that we’d waste
away dreamin’ of a world of love in
harmony...
My dreams come true I wish you
were here so I could see the forty
shades of green gleamin’ in your eyes
Now the summer is gone and it won’t
be long before I’m right back in the
middle torn between what I’m missin’
now and a sweet memory of yesterday...
A sweet memory of a sweet little
child I’d do anything for you
My sweet valentine

He certainly did earn that reputation.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
