Noticed the way you cut and move kind of reminds me
Of back in the day caught in my room running from myself
Digging for lights inside the hole of my heartache
Lost in the way I shouldn't go, waiting for someone else to

Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me the way out of this
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me the way out of this hole
Show me the way out of this

Startled to wake up in the cold of denial
Scratching to gain back some control of this twisted dream
I hid from the light inside the home of my darkness
The voice through the door said, "I alone hold the key to your peace"

Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me the way out of this
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me the way out of this
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me the way out of this hole
Show me the way out of this hole
Show me the way out of this hole

Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me the way out of this
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me the way out of this
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me the way out of this hole
Show me the way out of this hole
Show me the way out of this hole
Show me the way out of this

    Well to me this song sounds like Joshua is saying that he has met someone who he thought was like him in a way. And that person has reminded him of his past life. And he's saying that he sees the that person is just kind of going through life "cutting and moving". And is saying that the only way for them to get out out of this "hole" is for them to find Jesus. Don't beat me up if this interpritation is wrong!

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

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”
