I'm wandering the town all light off
Don't know where I'm leaving for
The muddy rain start to fall on me
And I'm walking down to subway

I can't see all around me
Get me out of here
Talk to me if someone is in this darkness

I'm out of my head
Out of my mind
Tell me where I'm what's going on,oh please

Something is hiding me off
Is this the wall of my heart

I have been lost so many things I've got
For long time I've been searching for my way

I carry on, carry on...

I'm spiting to their ugly heart
To this so stood world

Every day I forbear to fall the tears
don't wanna be down

Every night hurt is so deep in my heart
Is this my life
Oh! show me please

The wall close to me
It's so painful. Stop it!
Is there someone to help me
Please get me out here
Oh! get me out!

Dead or alive, No place to run
Get it settled once and for all
Dead or alive, Can't live in the past
Only one way to live.

Give my heart finishing blow
If I could only turn my back
Let me do screaming high
Squeeze the throes of death from me

It comes here the blame I'd done before
Fall on me as if it grow in my brain
The ugly side of myself tears me up
At this time I can't go back

Give my heart finish blow
If I couldn't run from the past
Let me do screaming high
Disclose feeling inside of me

Dead or alive, Can't live in the past
Only one way to live

Give my heart finishing blow
If I could only turn my back
Let me do screaming high
Squeeze the throes of death from me

The fight is over
The mad rain had gone past over me
Blood is flowing down
Tear is flowing down
Now I'm alive and I'm walking to the town again

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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,

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.
