Ooh gipsy
She knows the meaning of life
Knows what the future will hold
Secrets inside the eyes of a gipsy

Stories that play with your mind
Reasons with no explanation
Things that you find
Through the eyes of a gipsy

Seems that she knows
Everything shows
Plays with your soul
She is taking control

She knows the meaning of life
Knows what the future is holding
Secrets inside the eyes of a gipsy

Maybe a gipsy will do what she says
Maybe a gipsy with serious ways
And see what you're feeling by reaching inside
Your secret emotions
Controlling your mind

Seems that she knows
Everything shows
Plays with your soul
She is taking control

Stories that play with your mind
Reasons with no explanation
Things that you find through the eyes of a gipsy

Seems that she knows
Everything shows
Plays with your soul
She is taking control

Maybe a gipsy will do what she says
Maybe a gipsy with serious ways
And see what you're feeling by reaching inside
Your secret emotions
Controlling your mind

    This would have to be my least favorite Wright song, by a mile. The lyrics would probably be a lot better but the music ruins it. Blaaa

    Nah, the lyrics are bad, too. If I had written them, I would have thrown them away without even trying to improve them.

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.
