You know I started to grow
since you've been away
Lately, it's scarier not knowing
What's become of you
Are you proud of me now, I can't tell
I'm not as fearless as you

Still I pretend that you're still standing by
To show me wrong from right
Never got a chance to say goodbye

Take this gift from me
hold it deep in mind
forever
and never let this go
Take this gift from me
hold it deep in mind
forever
and never let this go

I used to think you were crazy
When you were hooked to the screen
But now they tell me that you're in a better place
But where did you go?
(But where did you go?)
And I swear sometimes you're watching over me
Still I'd give the world
for the chance
just to see your face again

Still I pretend that you're still standing by
To show me wrong from right
Never got a chance to say goodbye

Take this gift from me
hold it deep in mind
forever
and never let this go
Take this gift from me
hold it deep in mind
forever
and never let this go

Now, there's nothing left but time
Know that I'm following you
Eva's always on my mind
And it makes me wonder
(Makes me wonder)
What happened to you?
You know it makes me wonder

Still I pretend that you're still standing by
To show Me wrong from right
Never got a chance to say goodbye

Take this gift from me
hold it deep in mind
forever
and never let this go
Take this giftt from me
hold it deep in mind
forever
and never let this go
Take this gift from me
hold it deep in mind
forever
and never let this go
Take this gift from me
hold it deep in mind
forever
and never let this go
And never let this go...
away..

    This seems to be about losing someone very close. Like one's mother, or something.

    This song reminds me of someone I lost recently. "I'm not as fearless as you." Line gets to me. But this

    Now they tell me that you're in a better place, but where did you go? And I swear sometimes you're watching over me, still I'd give the world for the chance just to see your face again.

    is the best part of the song. Because regardless of what a person endured on earth, you still wish they were beside you.

    Or maybe that's just me.

    This song is about Eva, one of the band member's mothers. She died and the band was really close to her.

    A friend of mine... he disappears every so often it seems... I worry about him. He's like my guardian angel... And it feels so... empty... when he's not around... =9_9=

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.

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/

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.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
