I'm walking down an empty road, and I don't know,
where it's leading to,
my heart is beating faster and I'm searching,
for the truth,
gravity keeps pulling me and time is standing still,
golden rays are shining,
on you...

The sun is shining down on me, now i feel you,
the rain is falling over me, and i feel only you..
The sun is shining down on me (the sun is shining down on me)
now i feel you (now i feel you)
the rain is falling over me (the rain is falling over me)
and i feel only you.. (and i feel only you..)

spinning round i feel the heat, rising up,
deep inside of me,
look around and soon you'll feel the very air,
that i breathe,
your mind and soul is all around,
I sense you are so near,
now golden rays are shining
on me,

The sun is shining down on me (the sun is shining down on me)
now i feel you (now i feel you)
the rain is falling over me (the rain is falling over me)
and i feel only you.. (and i feel only you..)
The sun is shining down on me (the sun is shining down on me)
now i feel you (now i feel you)
the rain is falling over me (the rain is falling over me)
and i feel only you.. (and i feel only you..)

(repeat)

    Song seems pretty ambigious. Draws an incredible emotion though, somewhere between nostalgia and euphoria

    To me this song is about dreams and how you should follow them and your heart.

    1. I'm walking down an empty road, and I don't know where it's leading means he doesn't know where his life is leaving.

    2. my heart is beating faster and I'm searching, for the truth, means he is searching where he should go the truth for him.

    3. gravity keeps pulling me and time is standing still, golden rays are shining, means the time is standing still and he is bored with his life and is just blah but golden rays are shining on you...which means his heart is feeling like going his direction of his all-time dream, or maybe it is another dream that he feels was not as good in the past but feels it is would be better than his old dream.

    4. The sun is shining down on me, now i feel you, the rain is falling over me, and i feel only you.. which means his dream is shining down on him and he feels he should go that direction, the rain which symbolizes a bunch of emotions which leads him to it. His heart feels the rode he is going to is right.

    5. The sun is shining down on me (the sun is shining down on me) now i feel you (now i feel you) same thing as I said above.

    6. the rain is falling over me (the rain is falling over me) and i feel only you.. (and i feel only you..) and same as above.

    7. spinning round i feel the heat, rising up, deep inside of me, meaning he is nervous.

    8. look around and soon you'll feel the very air, that i breathe, meaning he takes a deep breath because he is confident.

    7. your mind and soul is all around, I sense you are so near, because he senses the dream is so near his mind is having happy thoughts a lot and his soul feels bliss a lot.

    8. I sense you are so near, now golden rays are shining on me, meaning the dream is so near so happiness is shining on him and feels just joy for the future.

    and then there are there is the sun chorus again.

    So basically I think this song is about going for your dreams no matter what anybody thinks and also to follow your heart through the obstacles and pain.

    Enjoy life and let this song build you up when you feel you can not complete your dreams.

    Cheers, ;D:(_);D;

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.

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.
Album art
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.
