What'll it take to make you break and give in to the pressure we create? Because losing is what we do, but we would rather lose with you, and misery is what you'll be when we spread our fallacy. Carry me in a vessel of lies, and when you're shipwrecked, I won't be surprised.

It's all I can do to make a fool out of you and show the world who you are: all alone and subpar. Bitter and all out of sync, this is what I think. Now we both know the truth, the world is talking about you.

I'm sorry to rain on your parade--but you haven't quite got it made, and with every mistake you make, why do you think that you can fake a life of misery? I will be the one to sell you out.

It's all I can do to make a fool out of you and show the world who you are: all alone and subpar. Bitter and all out of sync, this is what I think. Now we both know the truth, the world is talking about you.

And we both know that you haven't got the time to turn around and do something with your life. Now it's too late to try. Why not roll over and die? Put this jealousy to an end.

What'll it take to make you see? You've lost your immortality. The world has turned its back on you. You've lost your friends, it's nothing new. And when there's nothing left to do, will you realize that you're through? There's no time to make amends. You've got nothing to defend.

It's all I can do to make a fool out of you and show the world who you are: all alone and subpar. Bitter and all out of sync, this is what I think. Now we both know the truth, the world is talking about you.

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.
