I fall in she sees me and smiles
Then she starts to hate herself again
She screams something under her breath
That I wouldn't know if she said it out loud

She turns over to start a conversation
With a man that no one else can see
She dreams of loving me sometimes
And it makes me see what we've been missing

It's like I never knew anyone so strong before
She Brings the man outa me
And she makes me see that they don't matter

I believe
We see her playin' with another
She runs around you and then
It's like the sun goes down and she crawls away again

She wears white pants a Miami sweater
Says that She loves the O's
So Uncle Dean will come by

Her smile is like sunshine
Her tears hurt like leather
She runs the show she lets me know
Says it's all about being the only
It's like someone said you could have one good thing in your life
She couldn't be your type
I didn't plan for your smile, but you make me laugh when you stand dreamin'

I believe, we see her layin with another
She runs around you and then
It's like the sun goes down and she crawls away again

Where were you yesterday
Now that my heart is wild and free
And my lips have room to wander
How can I say your needing me now
When I've got a plan
I know you don't understand why my heart is sorry know

I believe
We see her laying with another
She runs around you and then
it's like the sun goes down and she crawls
I believe
We see her waiting with another
She runs around you and then
it's like the sun goes down and she crawls away again

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.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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,

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.
