Caught you in a ring of fire
All surround me, such a blaze
Got you in a ring of fire
Lift me as you say my name

Who you gonna get to bring you water
When your well runs dry?
What you gonna tell your little daughter?
Is the reason that her daddy makes her cry

Caught you in a ring of fire
Happy days are all ablaze
Happy days in a ring of fire
Lift me as you, say my name

Who you gonna get to bring you water
As your well runs dry?
What you gonna tell your little daughter?
Is the reason that daddy makes her cry

Sayin' Jesus never died at crucifixion
So, Mother Mary never suffered so much pain
Masqueraders paintin' pictures, flip the scriptures
Don't even know His name

I, I say, say it again, happy days are here
And bells, just don't stop ringin' in the rain
Happy days are all ablaze
All ablaze, all ablaze

I, I say the same again, happy days are here
And bells just don't stop ringin' in the rain
Happy days are all ablaze
All ablaze, all ablaze

Caught you in a ring of fire
Caught you in a ring of fire

    Also for the video Ian Brown is holding a picture of The Stone Roses which he burns. I think he's implying that in his opinion the Roses ain't gonna be reforming

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.

Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
