So Spring is in her belly,
It's sprouted in her soul,
And no one had to tell us,
We did just know.
And know life seems a little more, somehow,
And I looked at her like I always do and I see,

Just the thought of you changed us,
I remember exactly when,
But as soon as you say hello,
You say goodbye again,
And now she feels abandoned,
Forgotten and betrayed,
Well there ain't nothing I can do,
There's nothing I can say.

Don't go away so soon,
I'm hopin' to meet you,
When will our paths cross again?
I know we'll be the best of friends.

Thought I'd like to meet you,
See what you looked like,
I bet you look like your mother,
Boy, you'd be shining in the light,
But your not coming out to play,
Not tomorrow or tonight,
And now I hold her crying
Yes I hold her body tight.
Yes I hold her body tight.

And I say,
Don't go away so soon,
I'm hopin' to meet you,
When will our paths cross again?
I know we'll be the best of friends.
Don't go away so soon,
I'm hopin' to meet you
When will out paths cross again?
I know we'll be the best of friends.

Now its a month since your visit
And your memory lingers on,
Somehow feels like your around,
Even though I know your gone
And in these times when you feel so low
Ain't nothing you can do
But we're still thankful for your visit
'Cause we changed cause of you,
Yeah we changed cause of you.

    it is definitely about a miscarried first child. I don't believe John has been divorced & was released before Banjo was born. (Live Album Living) as released. So beautiful and sad. Listen to this live show, starting at the end of Betterman for the story. It will a story of Spring > Ocean > Peaches

    I think this is about John and his ex-partner. I think she miscarried their child, and in the song he is saying how hurt they are to lose him but so grateful for how it changed them

    Wow, I cried when I listened to this song. It's truly beautiful. I feel so sorry of anyone who has to go through that serious loss. It's amazing how he manages to describe that series of emotional changes that a person goes through. The happiness of knowing she's pregnant, to the sadness with the loss.

    I don't think he ever did divorce, but I never knew that his wife miscarried their first child, I just thought this song was about his daughter, Banjo. However, the miscarrying idea does make sense. Great song musically.

Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.

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."

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.
