Lock yourself behind an iron gate
To keep the intruders off your way
Sleep with a rifle in your bed
But still your screams keep you awake

'The madman's hiding in the night'
Searching for you
'The thieves are approaching your house'
Always out of sight
'The murderer's on the loose tonight'
Waiting for you
'Defend your piece of paradise'
Playtime's over

I can't tell the sun from the moon

All work and no play at all
Made Jack a dull little boy

Don't let the strangers know your name
Their smiling teeth have disappeared
Don't take the shortcut by the lake
Their eyes are following your way

'The madman's hiding in the night'
Storm is rising
'The thieves are approaching your house'
Shadows growing tall
'The murderer's on the loose tonight'
Hands are colder
'Defend your piece of paradise'
Playtime's over

I can't tell the sun from the moon

All work and no play at all
Made Jack a dull little boy

Here come a candle to light you to bed
Here come an angel to take you away

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.

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/

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
