Gave all the vampires back to God that day
No one got raped here, but the pain's still inside
I'll never love you, but I've got words to say
No one betrayed here, but the memories lie

I said don't go away
Turned off the lights
And then you said please don't follow me
And you cared

You stole my passion
Burned my everything
They're all the same here
Locked up change deep inside
I'll never love you, but I've got words to say
You killed the feeling, but the pain's still alive

You kept your feelings hidden
Like a psycho, burned it all
Down take me with you
Won't you let me go

I said don't go away
Turned off the lights
And then you said please don't follow me
And you cared

Well I'm so sick
We're just so sick
So sick of man

    this song is so passionate and beautiful. you can feel his pain in every word, the way he expresses so much through lyrics and music makes me feel so alive. the cd is entitled "13 ways to bleed on stage" and this fits so well b/c he pours his heart out in your face with every song.

    i have no idea what the hell this song is about but it is so beautiful, i agree with SOADgirl... except it makes me feel sad and wanting to cry, not exactly alive, it's beautiful nonetheless.

    "Sick Of Man is about a dad who leaves his child one night while the kid is sleeping."

    i've read the official meaning (what coldinhere posted) but i have no idea, other than that, what it could mean. 13wtbos is a totally rocking cd. it's the only cd that i will play my guitar along to. this song, along with "no one", is deffinately my favorite song on the cd to play. for sure.

    "Gave all the vampires back to God that day": all the "vampires" are the waste-of-organic-material people leaving him (his father).

    You don't know how hard this song can hit you until you've lived through it. Every word makes sense to me, he left and it tears a part of your insides out.

    My personal fav on "13 ways...". Obviously about leaving someone or being left. Most likely a spouse or significant other. Still, there is a possiblity it was a child being left by a parent, but a failed relationship rings true more often than not.

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/

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.
