Disillusioned, self-confusion
Trying to make it through another day
What's it all for, when does it end
There must be another way

Woven webs of intricacy
A life of nothing new
No one here to understand
Pressure's crushing you

Sixes and sevens
Disorder battles control
Sixes and sevens
Crises overflow

Aggravation deep frustration
I know what I want to do
Motivation is a problem
When it's driven out of you

Emotion, commotion's
Filling up the brain
Direction's null and void
Another drink dilutes the pain

Sixes and sevens
Disorder battles control
Sixes and sevens
Crises overflow

Sinking fast
Will it last
At sixes and sevens

Pulling through from yesterday
Another day is done
Determination
Self confidence has won

Woven webs of intricacy
Life is full of stress
That can only hinder
New desire to progress

Sixes and sevens
Disorder battles control
Sixes and sevens
Crises overflow

Sinking fast
Will it last
At sixes and sevens

    one...WTF!? no comments on this song!? WHERE ARE YOU PEOPLE!? and two, i'm sure one of the choruses changes from sixes and sevens disorder battles control sixes and sevens crises overflow

    to something about disorder losing control...I haven't heard the song in a few days so i'm not 100% sure but i'm about 70% sure

    And Xenimme you're almost right. In the last chorus it's something like:

    sixes and sevens disorder's lost control sixes and sevens crises down the hole

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/

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
