Yo, yo
Yo, this song, yo (yo, yo, yo)
This song is for all the women out there (yo, yo, yo, yo, yo)
That have been lied to by their men
And I know y'all been lied to
Over and over again, this is for y'all
Yo, maybe you didn't break the way you shoulda broke, yo
But I break, know what I'm saying, so
This is how it goes, yo
Psss, damn
Yo

Last year, Valentine's Day
You would spoil me and say
"Babe, I love you, love you, babe, I swear" (yo, he's lying)
Held you when you were sick, even
The whole time I think to myself, "This isn't fair"

What is this I see (no)
You don't come home to me (oh, no)
When you don't come home to me (man)
Can't deal, can't bear

You keep tellin' me lies
But to your surprise
Look, I found her red coat
And you're caught out there

I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
Ah
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
Ah
I hate you so much right now

So sick of your games, I'll set your truck to flames
And watch it blow up, blow up, tell me (hahaha)
How you gonna see it now
So far from sincere (I love you)
Fabrications in my ear
Drive me so far up the wall
I come slidin' down

What is this I see (I don't believe this)
You don't come home to me
When you don't come home to me
I can't deal, can't bear (I won't)

You keep tellin' me lies
But to your surprise
Look, I hope you're happy
Since you're caught out there (yeah, you've been caught)

Yo, yo (yo, come on)
Yo, yo, yo
Yo, yo (come on)
Yo, yo, yo

I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
Ah
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
Ah
I hate you so much right now

(She's so)
Raunchy, so vulgar, not me, why the hell her?
Look, she dresses (look at her)
A mess, what do you see? (I don't know)
It's not all about cash (hell, no)
Not how much you flash
How I dress is a reflection of me

What is this I see
You don't come home to me (uh-uh)
When you don't come home to me
Can't deal, can't bear (told you I won't)

You keep tellin' me lies
But to your surprise
Look, I got somethin' for y'all
Since you're caught out there

I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
Ah
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
Ah
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
Ah
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
I hate you so much right now
Ah
I hate you so much right now

Yo, yo
Yo, yo, yo
Yo, yo
Yo, yo, yo

    I love the shot gun sound near the end when she says "I got somethin' for y'all"! This is a proper man-bashing song. Love it, love it, love it!

    I love this song and Kelis. Homegirl is talented, unique, and very creative. Hopefully we will meet someday and be able to exchange ideas. This song is really hot and I can feel her anger as she sings. I love the video too.

Album art
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.
Album art
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”
Album art
Magical
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.
Album art
Punchline
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.
Album art
Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
