1, 2, 3, 4. It was too loud to hear what you were thinking.
And somehow I knew I would be sleeping alone tonight,
But I figured that's alright.
Could you still walk home with me?

I don't want to be wondering.
You couldn't keep me here.
It's you or two months on the road.
Just two months waiting by the phone.

She grew wings and I grew wheels.
And now the dust covers my heels.
You couldn't keep me here.
It's you or two months on the road.

Just two months waiting by the phone.
She grew wings and I grew wheels.
And now the dust covers my heels.
I sent your letter next day air.

No-dozed a lot and sat and stared.
I couldn't make it fifty pages in that book.
I'll pull into town when the saddest sun sets down.
And I'll see you at the show.

I hope you'll go.
You'll be there just waiting for me.
Just waiting for me.
I'll pull into town when the saddest sun sets down.

And I'll see you at the show.

    not really.. but, a lot of them have to do with girls. anyway, it's obvious as hell what this song is about. i think the title has something to do with those cheap novelty gifts you can buy at tourist traps.. even though they seem pretty useless, they still hold a kind of sentimental value, depending on who you give it to.

    I found this video of them playing the song acoustic: photozou.jp/photo/show/143376/6134660

    I listened to the part that isn't in the lyric sheet and it sounds like this:

    i knew i could the night we drove your car through hollywood i knew all the nights and all the words would make me think of her

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,

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/

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

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.
