When I'm awake at night, sometimes I picture you
And hear those words again you said, "I'm leaving"
I couldn't hold you down and not expect that you would drown
I'm a clown, but no one's laughing

Maybe you're from another planet, one I want to invade
It's all been said (it's all been said)
To me you're dead (to me you're dead)
And it's time you turn your page

I'm not sure what it was that led us down a dead-end road
Some of those signs can be quite deceiving
I knew your favorite things, didn't know that one of them was someone else
I'm done believing

Someday there will be understanding
Everyday is a tragedy
It's me you blame (it's me you blame)
But it's the shame (but it's the shame)
That you will always carrie, that wou will always carrie
That you will always carrie

    what a beautiful song! i think its about a broken relationship where the man has realised he pushed the girl away only he couldnt see it before. "i knew your favorite things/didnt know one of them was someone else" such a painful line were he realises everything has gone wrong. "to me your dead/and it time to turn your page" this is trying to move on as there is no point lingering. sad, but beautiful.

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,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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/

Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
