We've got so much work to do. You were running from the world and I brought it back to you. And as your day turns into night, can you reach what's in your sight? For sore eyes to see, lies could never be the truth you wanted in your life, the pain of wanting to realize a path well-traveled to help you unravel a life you never knew.

Here's to your understanding of a better world than ours, and since you're never landing, I hope your situation never sours.

And to all you drama queens--so you can keep your conscience clean, bury your sorrows with your sighs. I don't want to hear you cry for all the good it does to keep our pity where it was. You're not my universe, you're my curse.

Here's to my understanding of a better world than ours, and since I'm never landing, I hope this situation never sours. And I've got nothing left to lose. I will be your hangman, you can be my noose.

You breathe me in as your lungs fill with air. And as I look inside you, I see that nothing's there. And as this dream dies, I have only one regret--all the words unspoken that left me in your debt.

Here's to my understanding of a better world than ours, and since I'm never landing, I hope this situation never sours. And I've got nothing left to lose. I will be your hangman, you can be my noose.

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.

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/

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.
