Holy Man, so lucky
Yet you, Holy Man have nothing
Oh and help them, Holy Man,
To break the locks off all their heads
Holy Man, just like me

And oh, you're not like me (you're not like me)
But you, oh, can help me to be

Oh hey, Holy Man, so lonely
Yet you, Holy Man, have nothing
Oh and help them, Holy Man,
To raise their hearts above their heads
Holy Man, just like me

And oh, you're not like me (you're not like me)
But you, oh, can help me to be
When, oh, it's much bigger,
Oh, than I understand
And I can walk on the water
If you hold my hand

Oh hey, Holy Man, so lucky
Yet you, Holy Man, have nothing
Oh and help them, Holy Man,
To raise their hearts above their heads
Holy Man, just like me

And oh, you're not like me (you're not like me)
But you, oh, can help me to be
When, oh, it's much bigger,
Oh, than I understand
And I walk on the water
If you hold my hand

Oh hey, yeah, much bigger
Oh, oh yeah
Oh, much bigger
'Cause I, I understand

Oh hey, Holy Man, oh
Oh hey, Holy Man, oh
Oh hey, Holy Man, oh
Oh, hey

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.

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/

Punchline

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.

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.
