Since you've gone, well it
Seems like everything is wrong
And deep inside, I know that I've
Lost much more than pride
Well happiness is getting further away
Girl I miss more than words can say
I need a miracle now
So tell me

How can I change the world
'Cos I sure can't change your mind
Where's the miracle I need now
Got to get to you somehow
'Cos I can't change the world
I can't change the world
No I can't change the world

Losing you, well it's been the hardest
Thing to do
So I close my eyes and tell myself
That somehow I'll survive
Well you gave me heaven then you
Took it away
Girl I miss you more with each
Passing day
I need a miracle now
So tell me...

How can I change the world
'Cos I sure can't change your mind
Where's the miracle I need now
Got to get you somehow

And it's so sad you're leaving me
Just so you can find yourself
And it's so sad that you just can't see
I love you more than life itself

No I can't change the world

How can I change the world
'Cos I sure can't change your mind
Where's the miracle I need now
Got to get to you somehow
'Cos I can't change the world
Got to get you somehow
No I can't change the world
I can't change the world
No I can't change the world

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.

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/
