I've got no home in this world
Just gravity
Luck and time

I've got no hope in this world
Just you
And you are not mine

Stateless
Faithless
Stateless

There are no colors in your eyes
There's no sunshine in your skies
There's no race, only the prize
There is no tomorrow, only tonight

Stateless
It's the difference

You can cover the world with your thumb
Still so big, so bright, so beautiful

Faithless
Stateless

Push down on me
Push down on me
Push your weight down
Your weight down on me
Your weight (down on me)
When your weight falls down on me
Be the heavy hand
The mortal sand
Be the weight, heart, down on me

Stateless
Faithless
Hey bliss

    If you havent listened to the Million Dollar Hotel soundtrack you are missing out on some great U2 songs. As for what this song means i am kind of lost. To me i can pick up on some religious undertones but other than that im not sure.

    This is a great song! We sometimes have the feeling that we don't belong anywhere, that we can't find our place in this world... "I've got no home in this world". The correct lyric is "You can cover a world with your thoughts", meaning you can still dream... even though nobody understands you.
    I don't know... maybe i'm wrong. I just love this song!

    This song shows every indication of being about a man who is obssessed with an emotionally vacant woman. He can neither enjoy nor release her from his thoughts because of her beauty and in part because her illusiveless is a turn-on.

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
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.
