Well, I’ve never had the chance to shake a money maker
It’s all Greek to me
I never seem to do the right thing
So it might bring me the mustard seed
I’ve even tried to change my looks
I bought all the books
But it’s always the same in the end
Those women just chew me up
Then they spit me out
Then they chew me up again
But I’ve found an angel
She’s got the cure
All that I’ve been praying for

I’ve got a pleasure appointment
Cashing in the chips and I’m going to
A pleasure appointment with you

Now I usually put some gin
Where my hope had been
But this time ain’t the same
Because we both got the infection
And the ancient connection
Is running through our veins
Ain’t nothing like that kindred feeling
That’s so appealing
When you’re all alone
I’m never gonna take those steps
‘cause she’s my Juliet
she’s all my own
I got an angel
And she’s got the cure
All that I’ve been praying for

I got a pleasure appointment
I’m cashing in the chips
And I’m going to
A pleasure appointment with you

Now it’s just about her time to surface
And serve my purpose
I hate the in between
It’s so good to just be sitting here
In the whack job chair
Reading whack job magazine
I’ll just keep coming up with problems
And if she thinks that she can solve them
I’ll just come up with some more
As long as they can keep me here
In the whack job chair
With the one that I adore
I’ve found an angel
And she’s got the cure
All that I’ve been praying for

I’ve got a pleasure appointment
Cashing in the chips
And I’m going to
A pleasure appointment with you

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.

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.
