If the sorrow takes you by surprise
For what was lost inside our eyes
You were more, so much more, than only beautiful

And if the morning wakes you much too soon
Cuz the night had swallowed you in full moon
You were more, so much more than simply wonderful

And when emotion gets you in a spin
Rushing round, girl, let it in
This is more, so much more, than what you bargained for

These are my words to you from someone else
These are the thoughts I could not find the words to write
These are expressions I thought I could finally find
Could figure it out, could figure you out

Sitting out up here till dawn
Just wondering why there's nothing more than this
You're so much more than you want from the world

And for us, you wonder what could be
You're doubting what you mean to me
Well you're more, so much more than just my Sunday girl

These are my words to you from someone else
These are the thoughts I could not find the words to write
These are expressions I thought I could finally find
Could figure it out
I couldn't figure you out
This is my heart on the line so give it a chance
To explain all the reasons it's wanting to dance
Cuz the love that I now see inside of your eyes
Could figure it out, figure you out

    It's beautiful... I wish (as sad as this sounds)... that you'd write something like this about me Guess I can only dream about how I wish you felt about me x

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.

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/

Magical
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.

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.
