There's something that I wanna keep
Inside my heart where feelings are soul deep
Things could get worse day after day,
I know my dreams would never fade away.

I know you've got soul but you're wasting your time
Looking for our goal you don't need to find
So please change your style and start living for a while
Everything is already there in your heart.

Yeah yeah yeah

It's there when you are asleep
When you heart beats you can hear it soul deep.

Things could get worse day after day
I know my dreams would never fade away

I know you've got soul
But you're wasting your time
Looking for our goal
You don't need to find
No need to find
So please change your style
And start thinking for a while
Everything is already there in your heart.

Yeah

I only want you to try something new
I only want you to believe in you
That's what you have to do.
Trust me, it's true.

That's what you have to do.
La la la la la la la
That's what you have to do.

There's something that I wanna keep
Inside my heart where feelings are soul deep.

I know you've got soul
But you're wasting your time

Soul deep, something I wanna keep.

    It's like he's telling someone that he/she is looking for themselfs in all the wrong superficial places, when everything is right there in their heart and soul.

    i think the speaker is drawing strength from the fact that this person has 'soul', saying that they are 'wasting their time' but at the same time it's what the speaker wants to keep 'inside my heart where feelings are soul deep'.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.

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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
