She is a cool operator, mysterious woman
Just like, just like a mobster
A detective undercover

The first time I saw her, it was the summer time(the summer time now)
And on the surface she looked so fine, fine, fine
She was askin to see who I was, said a nah, nah, nah
I wondered what her motives were

She asked me if I was a reggae star (a reggae star now)
If I could show her around the world (around the world)
But we play music just to share our love girl, said a nah, nah, nah
I can not resist this shy-eyed girl because

Repeat Chorus

I saw her walking on the beach in Waimea
She robbed my braddahs from their speech
She's wearin diamonds and shes flashing pearls
She's puttin me right out of reach

Some guy pulls up inside a fancy car, a fancy car now
She partys with him though the night
But deep inside I know she checks for me cuz she feels deeply
But I know it can not be, because

Repeat Chorus

The world is changing, yes this means you, since you were a kid
It fills your head with many dreams, thats the life you live
Uptown girl, steppin high in your high fashion
I know you try, can't be no queen Never Girl!!

Repeat Chorus

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.

@[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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

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.
