Stuck on you
Got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can't lose
Guess I'm on my way
I needed a friend
And the way I feel now, I guess I'll be with you 'til the end
Guess I'm on my way
Mighty glad you stayed

Stuck on you
I been a fool too long, I guess it's time for me to come on home
Guess I'm on my way, whoa, oh
So hard to see
That a woman like you could wait around for a man like me
Guess I'm on my way
I'm mighty glad you stayed, oh (mighty glad you stayed)
(Mighty, mighty) Mighty glad

Oh, I'm leaving on that midnight train tomorrow
And I know just where I'm going now
I've packed up my troubles and I've thrown them all away
Oh yeah
'Cause this time, little darling
I'm coming home to stay

I'm stuck on you (stuck on yo)
I've got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can't lose (I've got a feeling)
Guess I'm on my way, oh yeah
I needed a friend
And the way I feel now, I guess I'll be with you 'til the end
Guess I'm on my way
I'm mighty glad you stayed (mighty glad you stayed, mighty)
I'm mighty glad you stayed
Mighty glad you stayed

Mighty glad you came around Darius

    I love Lionel Richie I'm surprised how few people have commented on his songs. They're so beautiful. I guess they're pretty obvious and don't require that much Interpretations or deciphering, but...

    Oh well. I love Lionel Richie

    Stunning poetry. This song is about a person who runs from their feelings- love. Their tired of running- guess I'm stuck on you, guess I'm on my way.

    What's with me and the 80s? Apparently I love cheese, I do I do. Seriously this is a great gosh darn song. It's just heartfelt and sweet. This person was a real jerk and realizes how much they actually love someone and feels lucky they waited for them.

    My Interpretation

    This song is about coming home to an old flame, who is still waiting for him at where they used to live. She has been pining or waiting for him all this time, while he left and has been with other women. He is coming back to her to settle down with her.

    I don't really think its as much about losing somebody as it is about finding them... without meaning to. This is like my parents song, goosebumps everytime... Lionel Richie is great

    In 1968, a group of pledges to the Alpha Pi Alpha fraternity at Tuskegee University were hazed. With little to no training experience, they were entered into this talent contest where they had to play music and sing impromptu. The initiated brothers watched them intently knowing they would fail. The group not only won the contest hands down, but went on to produce several platinum albums and win several Grammy\'s. This group later became known as the Commodores.\n\nBut there\'s more to the story. The lead singer of the Commodores constantly feuded with the band because they wanted to play up-tempo music that was funky and snappy, and he wanted to sing slow, romantic ballads. The feud would eventually lead to him splitting from the band and going solo. That lead singer\'s name was Lionel Richie. And you all know what he did.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
