Tell me tell me is life just a playground
Think you're the real deal honey
And someone'll always look after you

But wake up baby
You're so totally deluded
You'll end up old and lonely
If you don't get a bullet in your head

Good luck good luck
Good luck in your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares honey
When you're resting your head

Good luck good luck
Good luck in your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares honey
When you're resting your head

You sold me sold me
You sold me down the river now
Hope you're feeling happy now
Now you'll always have a sneer in your smile

But wake up baby
You're so totally deluded
You'll end up old and lonely
If you don't get a bullet in your head

Good luck good luck
Good luck in your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares honey
When you're resting your head

Good luck good luck
Good luck in your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares honey
When you're resting your head

And I'm glad so glad that I'm done with you
No more crying crying leaving me so black and blue
You backed me up against the wall but I stand tall
Don't give a damn no more

Oh baby bye bye
No more lies
No more lies
No more lies
Without you

Good good luck
In your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares when your resting your head
Good good luck
In your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares

Good luck good luck
Good luck in your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares honey
When you're resting your head

Good luck good luck
Good luck in your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares honey
When you're resting your head

Good luck good luck
Good luck in your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares honey
When you're resting your head

Good good luck
In your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares when your resting your head
Good good luck
In your new bed
Enjoy your nightmares

    can i jsut say im sick of you people giving your opinions on the songs, this site is poretty much called songmeanings.net not tellusyouropinion.com.... so fuck off and if your you too dumb to be able to interpret songs then fuck off and join some kiddy teen music fan forum where you can all talk about dancing to songs and how 'kiss ass' they are...

    this song is about a woman who gets constantly beaten up by her man "leaving me so black and blue" after constatnly telling the man that he would end up 'old and lonely' (if he doesnt get shot before then) the woman gets her revenge when her abusive ex goes to jail and she exclaims "good luck in your new bed, enjoy your nightmares!"

    bittersweet...

    This is a modern masterpiece and my favourite song (hence the username). It is shockingly underrated and should have been HUGE! The song is an anthemic 21st century ‘I Will Survive’, which everyone who hears loves; just not enough people have heard it!

    The song tells the story of a woman (Lisa Kekaula, of the BellRays, who also features on the Jaxx single ‘U Don’t Know Me’) whose boyfriend/husband has been cheating on her and lying to her ‘no more lies!’ He is ‘so totally deluded’ as he thinks he can get away with cheating. It would also appear he is perhaps a criminal of some sort, an idea suggested by the line, ‘you’ll end up old and lonely’, [a reference to his cheating ways], ‘if you don’t get a bullet in your head’. This idea is perhaps linked to the hint that he has been beating Kekaula ‘No more crying, crying leaving me so black and blue’.

    This criminal theme is expanded on in the excellent video which casts Kekaula as a prison officer who, whilst driving to work sees her other half (photos seen in the video suggest they are married) everywhere. Once she gets to work, he is among a group of new prisoners who gets of a bus. At the climax of the song, she completely ignores him as she guides him through the prison to his cell, once there he sits with his head in his hands.

    It is such a shame so few other people have commented on it, as it is Basement Jaxx’s best song by a long way. In addition, just to point out, it has not been confirmed that story is either true, or about Kekaula herself.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

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/

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.
