Sky fell down and pulled us in
Stole away my oxygen
And left me standin' breathless there with you
The ocean wrapped around the sun
The smell of June - the taste of your tongue
Was all I'd ever need

I - well I want to be clear
Well I needed you here
And I'm waiting you out
But you - you don't have a clue
And I'd drive right through
To find you anywhere

(Pre-Chorus)
Sky fell down and pulled us in
Stole away my oxygen
And left me standin' breathless there with you
The ocean wrapped around the sun
The smell of June - the taste of your tongue
Was all I'd ever need

(Chorus)
But you - you keep on waiting
For the sun to come around
And you - you keep on waiting
For something better - better off to come around

You - well you wanted more time
So I gave you more time
Oh but I am the sun that waits to come around

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Oh but you were a restless soul
Where's the next best thing
While I waited for you
All my life waited for you to come around
Come around

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Come around - come around
You're better off to come around
Come around - come around

    Here's Ken Block's description he gives at his concerts:

    "This song is actually inspired... We were talking about some friends of ours who met and had a big night... They watched the sun go down on the West coast of Florida, and throughout the evening the meandered their way back to the East coast and watched the sun rise. We talked about what that night meant to them, and that kind of started the idea of "Chasing Daylight" is what it did for us... I think, after having said all that, it's really just a song about having sex on the beach."

    What? ONE comment? This is a song about being the moment for me, taking in every incentive from the surrounding and just loving life. By far one of the best feel-good song on the face of the earth.

    He's waiting for her to settle down with him. The "June" comment refersto him wanting to marry her, waiting for an answer. eventually she'll need to come around and realize he's the one.

    I think this song depicts the memory of a first kiss. Something you'd remember everything about- the sky, the weather, everything.

    Summer relationship where she isn't as into it as he is. She might be afraid to let herself fall in love and have that connection to someone.

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.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[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.

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.
