Making your way in the world today,
takes everything you got.
Taking a break from all your worries,
sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?

All those nights when you got no lights.
The check is in the mail.
And your little angel
hung the cat up by it's tail.
And your third fiance didn't show.
Sometime you want to go...

Where everybody knows your name.
And they're always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
the troubles are all the same.
You wanna be where everybody knows your name.

You roll aout of bed, Mr. Coffee's dead,
the morning's looking bright,
(the mornings looking bright).
And your shrink ran off to Europe,
and didn't even right.
And your husband wants to be a girl.
Be glad there's one place in the world...

Where everybody knows your name.
And they're aways glad you came.
You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same.
You wanna go where everybody knows your name.

Where everybody knows your name.] (X3)
(where everybody knows your name)](X3)

    I like this song a lot because I go to a small town school where literally, everybody knows your name. It's pretty awesome, and I'm going to try and convince my class to make this our class song!

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
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.

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.

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
