(I hoped it would be)
I want love to make me happy
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to make me cry
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be a promise
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to make me die

I want love to be a river
I want love to be the wind
I want love to be forever
I want love to be a sin

(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be an arrow
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be the heart
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be a painting
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be the art

I want love to be a building
I want love to be a bridge
I want love to be a castle
I want love to be the edge

(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be a window
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be the sea
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be real
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be a train

I want love to be the magic
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be a spell
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be heaven
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be hell

I want love to be the circus
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be the fair
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be the devil
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be the dare

I want love to make me tender
I want love to make me wild
I want love to be a teacher
I want love to be a child

I want love to be a cadalliac
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be a ship
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be a journey
(I hoped it would be)
I want love to be a trip

I want love
I want love
I want love

Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, some kind of love
(I hoped it would be)
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, some kind of love
(I hoped it would be)

Love,
Yeah
L.o.v.e
Love isn't everything I hoped it would be
No,no

(I hoped it would be)
(I hoped it would be)
(I hoped it would be)
(I hoped it would be)

Everything I hoped it would be
I wish
I wish
I wish it would be
Everything I want it to be

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Dreamwalker
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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Punchline
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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
