If I had a tattoo
I would get one of you
Or at least of a generic womans body
Draw your head on with a texta
If I had a tattoo
I would get one of your name
Or at least I'd get the alphabet
And circle all the letters that I needed
You know I wanna stay with you forever
(ooooo, ooooo)
Spend eternity with you
Theres nothin that our love won't last us through....
But a tattoo
Just seems so permenant.....
If I had a tattoo
I would get one of you
Or at least of a generic womans body
Draw your head on with a texta
If I had a tattoo
I would get one of your name
Or at least I'd get the alphabet
And circle all the letters that I needed
You know I wanna stay with you forever
(ooooo, ooooo)
Spend eternity with you
Theres nothin that our love won't last us through....
But a tattoo
Just seems so permenant.....
So I got a tattoo
From a temporary tattoo parlour
The tatto it stayed on
But the parlours gone

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.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
