You know I don't know what it is
But something about you is so irresistible

Don't you try and tell me that he's not my type
To hide what I feel inside
When he makes me weak with desire
I know that I'm supposed to make him wait
Let him think I like the chase But I can't stop fanning the fire
I Know I meant to say no

But he's irresistible
Up close and personal
Now inescapable
I can hardly breathe
More than just physical
Deeper than spiritual
His ways are powerful
And irresistible to me
(Yeah yeah, I can hardly breathe)

Don't you think I'm trying to tell my heart what's right
That I should really say goodnight
But I can't stop myself from falling
Maybe I'll tell him that I feel the same
That I don't want to play no game
'Cause when I feel his arms wrapped around me
I know I meant to say no
(I meant to say no)

But he's irresistible (irresistible)
Now inescapable
I can hardly breathe
(I can hardly breathe)
More than just physical
Deeper than spritual
His ways are powerful
Irresistible to me

Can't you see whenever he's close to me
I really find it hard to breathe
he's so irresistible
Baby you know it's more than just spiritual
His kisses are powerful

He's so irresistible
Up close and personal
Now inescapable
I can hardly breathe
(I can hardly breath)
More than just physical
Deeper than spiritual
His ways are powerful
Irresistible to me

He's irresistible
Up close and personal (irresistible to me)
I can hardly breathe
More than just physical
Deeper than spritual
His ways are powerful
Irresistible to me

    I LOVE this song. I use to listen to it like every day. I think mostly because I think it really hits close to home. Don't you think I'm trying to tell my heart what's right That I should really say goodnight But I just can't stop myself Maybe I'll tell him that I feel the same That I don't want to play no game When I feel his arms hooked around me I know I'm meant to say no (I meant to say no) .. I know exactly what she means. BWAHAHAHAHA

    I'm sure i'd heard this song before but it was only when I read the lyrics that it reminded me of something i wrote about my relationship with my ex. I would jump at a second's notice my heart beats faster just with the thought what does it mean that I miss him still what does it mean do i love him what does it mean that I know I would do it what does it mean that I know I would regret it a deeper yearning than physical a stronger need than emotional I miss the comfort I find only in him I miss the senseless sense we make what does it mean what does it mean that I'm not writing to you tell me reach out miss me love me still need me as much as I need you no one understands me the way you do no one can so easily make me cry, or make me stop crying what does this all mean what does it add up to excitement, yearning, comfort, tears what does it all add up to

    This song is about wanting to be intimate with someone but you know it's not the right time. It says a lot about Jessica. Because she obviously wants to be intimate with a guy but she vowed to be a virgin until marriage. Which I think shows she's has substance. Unlike Britney.

    There have been so many times, where I've thought of a guy, saying, "He's so irresistible" but I know I shouldn't do anything about it.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.

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.
