(Hold me, 'till the end)

Voiceless whispers, running through my head
Haunting Vespers, press from the dead

There are lights on the path is clear ahead
I was certain you'd be there 'till the end

Oh, oh, hold me 'till the end, oh, oh

Shine a light on, show the lighted path
Feel them rising, reaching from the path

Stars cascading, light beyond the clouds
Empty rivers, flowing empty now

Oh, oh, hold me 'till the end
Oh, oh, I'll take you to the end

Oh, oh, hold me 'till the end
Oh, oh, I'll take you to the end

Hold me 'till the end
Hold me 'till the end
I'll take you to the end

Oh, oh, hold me 'till the end

    Cracking tune, I never tire of it.

    It seems to have a dark theme to it, though. Seems to be about them dying or more likely the other person dying... how they want them to be there to hold them 'til death. That's what it is to me, anything.

    "Haunting Vespers Press from the dead"

    A vesper is a song/prayer celebrated in early evening at church when the daylight ends. There is a theme of light in this song .. probably related, I don't know.

    My Uncle is a good friend with Darren I got this song before it was released. I love it... I'm listening to it right now. One of the best sounding songs IMO.

    My Interpretation

    I think it's someone who is about to die and is contemplating "the path" ahead of them so to speak.

    Their lover has died before them and they are following with yearning. They do not appear to be afraid of death in the least, but regard in it a very mystical quality, which they describe. Or perhaps they are experiencing a genuine NDE. So the imagery is how their see death in their mind, or perhaps even with their own eyes.

    The "press from the dead" line gets me too. Are we sure those lyrics are official? I always thought it was "prayers from the dead".

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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."

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
