Now we've been friends girl for quite a while
I've never been the kind for beggin' and pleadin'
But I can tell by your hazy smile
All of his lies you've been finding are heavy on your mind

He broke your heart and he took your pride
Will you ever love again?
Though you try you don't believe it
Come over here, talk to me a while
Girl if you tried you would find that

Someone like me, simple and free
I could change your mind
I'll love you in places he couldn't find
Girl don't you see for the chance I've been waiting
For you to let me
Love the hurt away (that's all I want to do)
Love the hurt away

If you ever did, girl you need me now
You don't need the complications of running to a stranger
So I'm coming over and I'll stay a while
Taking my time till I find that sparkle in your smile
Like a father's shoulder or a mother's arms
Girl I've always been the one
For strength and understanding
The rain will stop the clouds will be gone
Girl if you tried you would find that
You're someone like me, simple and free
We're two of a kind
I'll love you in ways no one has ever tried
Girl don't you see for the chance I've been waiting
For you to let me

Love the hurt away
Love the hurt away (for so many
years I been waiting for this night baby)
Love the hurt away, love the hurt away
I been there for you and you for me
Better friends we'll never find
Nobody really knows you (knows you, knows you)
No baby not the way I do (you know it's true oooh)
We could miss an opportunity for what we've both been trying to find
And girl it's time I told you (told you told you)
That all I ever really really wanted
All I ever really wanted was to hold you
Love the hurt away

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.

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,

Magical
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.

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.
