She's like the starts and the moon
And the sun smiling down upon the ocean
She doesn't know what she's doing
She's a river running over emotion
But she's got no horn to blow
She's got no boat to row
Oh, which way will she go?
She is nothing but perfection
And wisely she makes me pay for it
She can live without my affection
And my heart, she has nothing to say for it
She just collects her due
She'll go lie down when she's through
Oh, what will she do?
She is a highway through the desert
Stretching into infinity lined by telephone wires
She is the storm at the top at the top of the mountain
And she has no mercy on fools and liars
And sometimes she just runs around
She's lost in the middle of town
Oh, when will she go down?
Oh no, which way will she go?
Oh no, which way will she go?
She don't answer when I call
She goes on building her wall, and standing so tall
Oh, how hard will she fall?
She is a tiger in a cage
And she tears apart all of the meat you throw her
She has trouble acting her age
And she laughs at all the pictures you show her
Her fire don't burn slow
There's things she'd rather not know
Oh, which way will she go?

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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”

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.

“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 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.
