I like it when we roll over and over
And talk to ourselves
It's not like something
I wish that I could have,
I won't forget it,
To talk in circles like we do.
And with your half-hearted laugh,
I'm forgetting the things I should say.
like when I said I needed help,
When I said I miss you.
I miss you, I miss you

Tell me why I look at you the way I do.
Like the way I see your eyes in mine,
Bringing out my softest smiles
And all the words you say to me
Are ringing in my head
And it makes me feel this way,
You always make me feel this way.

My bed is cold on the side where you're missing,
It keeps me awake.
I'm making memories of you sleeping
And how much I need them.
To talk in circles like we do.

Tell me why I look at you the way I do.
Like the way I see your eyes in mine,
Bringing out my softest smiles
And all the words you say to me
Are ringing in my head
And it makes me feel this way,
You always make me feel this way.

I'm already so sorry,
I'll wait for things to change more.

This pain will bury me.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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/
