Hey baby hey baby hey baby
Slow down hold up (I want you to be mine)
Hey baby hey baby hey baby
Slow down hold up (I want you to be mine)
We can hook up
We can hook up
We can get married
This is my gift to you
My love is true
We can get married

Who’d have thought my babe was on an island of her own
Had me smiling on the phone same page different time zones
God’s a real character painting caricatures of christ
And his love for the church enduring the pain 'cause it hurts
When I saw you I went bezerk insane goin looney and cartooney
So sue me you was a vision of beauty truly
Thinking of all the charm to inflect upon my behalf
Forgive me don’t mean to stare but your hair is down to your calf
Tell me about yourself your culture is polynesian
I love when the breeds be mixin our blueprint is in ephesians
Instantaneously cultures collided decided we’d ride it
Spent time in prayer separately so we wouldn’t have to hide it
Fictitious image brought to life reflection of love
Carefully inspected with gloves so fragile my darling was
And I ain't need miss cleo to re-assure me that I got her
Scored big like the opening week of harry potter

In the beginning I hesitated debated within my soul
Wrestling with my feelings of knowing if you was sent
Enduring the distance alone being content
Longing your presence believing that we was meant
Submitted my intent I was truly convinced
You're the women in my life I couldn’t breathe without
And I wrote this so you wouldn’t have any doubt
Or misunderstanding of what my love is really about
Cause from here on out baby its all about us
And from here on out I want to build on trust
Cause the union we got ain't no comparing any other
I'm askin you to be more than a baby's mother
My help mate soul tie my right hand
Beginning and end and better half of life
To be my lady my lover my best friend and wife hey

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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.

Amazing
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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
