I'm glad to see you my friend you look
real good let us journey now to the
stars and we can fly through space
and make huge robots and we will
give them places to live, we'll
visit other planets and make new
friends we'll hold hands and they'll
teach us a game it's fun to learn
the game and we all play, well
we like to taste all of their
strange foods

we navigate and we create
big robots, to help us out when
we land we make new friends
and they're impressed with our
robots, we like fun, games are fun
fun is good, robots are good, we
live on earth, but out in space
we like to live on our spaceship

exploring the universe...
we now must leave our new friends,
but don't be sad, we'll come back here
to see them again, and just maybe next
time we'll teach them a fun game, I
bet that they will learn it so fast
we give them hugs and smile, let's
wave goodbye! it's fun to see their
different parts, they're shaped a little
different than us, but hey, we love them
just the same cause they're swell

we navigate, and we create big robots
to help us out, when we land we meet
new friends, and they're impressed with
our robots, we like fun, games are fun,
fun is good, robots are good, we live on
Earth, but out in space, we like to live
on our spaceship

we are from earth, exploring the universe!

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.

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.

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
“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.

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.
