Don't worry, come closer.
Don't cry.
Ahh don't cry.
Ahh don't cry.
Ahh

Get moving or I'll kick your ass(background)

Ba-da ba-da ba ba-da,
Ba-da ba da

Ooohh I watch you comb your hair in different light.
You change the chair and seem to think that's alright.
I understand,
You need a change.
When you make that change,
Don't look to see
I'm alright.

Now that I look at you in different light

Change the chair
A violet unicorn to me that's alright

I understand,
You need a change

The world will elevate you. The world will elevate you.
And when you make that change the world will elevate you

And if I told you then that I could cry,
Would you take my tears and wash the sun rise?
A man afraid has no shame

So when you take those tears don't look to see I'm alright
Look to see I'm alright

When you take those tears don't look to see I'm alright
Look to see I'm alright

How can I tell you?
How can I explain?

I I
I want your love, I need a change

In me.

Ba-da ba-da ba, ba-da
Ba-da ba da

Why should they come?
They were supposed to die back there.
But I didn't, for the second time.
Don't worry they'll come,
They know.
Do what?
That I'm not like anyone else?

Suddenly,
You and I will wait
In your dreams.

Suddenly,
You and I will wait
In your dreams
Tonight night
We'll finally change
You and I will wait
And maybe time will tell

All over
All over
All over
All over
All over

You and I will need a
You and I

You and I will need a
You and I

You and I will need a better place.
To start all over again

Oh babe,
Maybe tomorrow
Maybe tomorrow

Will be their brighter day?
Be their brighter day-heyday-hey

All over
All over
All over
We'll finally change
With a lesson
With a lesson
Oh and oh no.

Why do they do that?
Hahahaha
Why do you want to do that? no-one else ever has.

Because no one else ever has.

You've got no fear of communists when they're finished(?)
They have only killed him for questioning.
Don't be too fond of Christians.
Never

Come out.
No, I want in.
I'll speak to her, leave her.

I've got to go to the hospital.
The guy has taken me in.
Give it to me
Please let me quit
Oh go on
Just don't leave me here.

Ah whether he thinks this might be helpful.
Can you go back when he was evaluated?
Charlie was evaluated in July
His heart valve was causing him a problem.
I know, that's why I don't understand it
Well, if one of them thinks that it says symbiosis

Loving Chile there's,
Always something new
Always something new
Always something new
Always something
Always something

Darling yeah there's something
Always something always something

Soaking wet

Yeah

    A song about people going in different directions in their lives. Meanwhile, cherishing what they've had, exictedly looking ahead to the unknown future, with a promise of never forgetting the experiences shared...

    P.S. One of my favorite songs of all time...

    Really beautiful song about relationships, laid back and melancholic at the same time. The film samples give it a dream-like feel - it always makes me sleepy.

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.

Dreamwalker
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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
