All that you wanted to say
I'll never come here again
All that I wanted to say
All gone

Springtime is always in hand
Almost as if you were there
Making a hole under me again
Hold on

Cause I couldn't make up
A thing that you say, love
There's trouble in here
Hold on
Thing that I fear

Take all the love outta me
So I'd never see it again
Lost, where are we
On our plane
Ah, yes

Cause I couldn't make up
A thing that you say, love
There's trouble in here
Hold on
Thing that I fear

Cause I couldn't make up
A thing that you say, love
There's trouble in here
Hold on
A thing that I share
Hold on
There's trouble in here
Thing that I fear, yeah

    This song makes me think that he's in a relationship that he knows isn't going to last much longer, and that's a difficult thing to bring up.

    so has anyone else noticed that during the instrumental break, about 4:05 minutes into the song, that he is saying something really quietly in the background? i'm pretty sure theres really something there but i just can't understand it. if anyone knows what hes saying let me know because i'm really curious.

    ha ha, him talking has been bugging me too...I REALLY wish I knew what he is saying! At the very beginning he says something like "when the snow falls, you can actually hear the snowflake hitting the ground" but after that I can't tell what he is saying for the life of me and it has been bugging the crap out of me! ha ha, yes, somebody else help if you know!

    i think the song is more about how he understands that the relationship is rocky but hes trying to make it work (key words 'hold on'). as for the talking during the break you're right about the snowflake part but if you listen closely you'll hear the phrase "i touched the moon once" very distinctly. i think both these phrases are used to woo his lover and turn the relationship good again.

    also, at the very end, the last thing he says is 'sing some songs'

    in the beginning he says: "when the snow falls, you can actually hear the snow flakes hitting the ground, and we can catch the Northern Lights...." after a few seconds you can pick up "I touched the moon once" and then at the end hey says "so maybe we'll just drop our bags, sing some songs and take a walk"

    I looooveee this song. the instrumental build up is so climactic...and his voice is amazing. Whatever else he's muttering in the background just adds to the ambiance of the song.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

No Surprises
Radiohead
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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.
