Once upon a time there was a girl so young and sad
An holy prayer blessed her sleep before she went to bed
Her body was immaculate, her hair was solid gold
Pretend she's still a virgin for
A Virgin rather old
But no one could imagine how the girl would need a man
She dreamed about a man all night
So sadly, so sadly

Take him in my heart
It's a long way to start
With a man who (oh, oh, oh) doesn't exist for you
Take him in my heart
It's a long way to start
If you don't (oh, oh, oh) know where's your way to go

One morning she was feeling bad and didn't go to school
She went to town to find a man who fucks her attitude
Moving hard and (?) She was walking down the street
Suddenly she saw a man, the man she dreamed to meet
Hello guy, you're looking good, don't you think it's alright
Too lonely now, I need a man
So badly, so badly

Take him in my heart
It's a long way to start
With a man who (oh, oh, oh) doesn't exist for you
Take him in my heart
It's a long way to start
If you don't (oh, oh, oh) know where's your way to go

The man look in her eyes and took her kindly by the hand
I want to help you, babe, but I can't understand
Why don't you leave your castle
And try to live your life
Without holy prayers you will do it always right
You think you are the greatest and the whole world is yours
Forever you will feel so good
So happy, so happy

Take him in my heart
It's a long way to start
With a man who (oh, oh, oh) doesn't exist for you
Take him in my heart
It's a long way to start
If you don't (oh, oh, oh) know where's your way to go

Take him in my heart
It's a long way to start
With a man who (oh, oh, oh) doesn't exist for you (ah)
Take him in my heart
It's a long way to start
If you don't (oh, oh, oh) know where's your way to
Go!

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.

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.

“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.

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.
