We break, break
We break, break
We break, break
We're breaking down

We break, break
We break, break
We break, break
We're breaking down

It's getting later baby, and I'm getting curious
Nobody's looking at us, I feel delirious
'Cause the beat penetrates my body
Shaking inside my bones
And you're pushing all my buttons, taking me out of my zone, yeah

The way that you stare, starts a fire in me
Come up to my room my sexy little thing
And let's play a game, I won't be a tease
I'll show you the boom, my sexy little thing

I wish you would push up on me
I wish you would push up on me
I wish you would light me up and say you want me push up on me

I wish you would push up on me
I wish you would push up on me
I wish you would light me up and say you want me push up on me

I know many guys just like you, extremely confident
Got so much flavour with you, like you're the perfect man
You wanna make me chase you, like it's a compliment
But let's get right down to it
I can be the girl that'll break you down

The way that you stare, starts a fire in me
Come up to my room you sexy little thing
And let's play a game, I won't be a tease
I'll show you the boom, my sexy little thing

I wish you would push up on me
I wish you would push up on me
I wish you would light me up and say you want me push up on me

I wish you would push up on me
I wish you would push up on me
I wish you would light me up and say you want me push up on me

We break, break
We break, break
We break, break
We're breaking down

We break, break
We break, break
We break, break
We're breaking down

I wanna see how you move it
Show me, show me how you do it
You really got me on it, I must confess (I must confess)
Baby there ain't nothing to it
Baby who you think you're fooling?
You wanna come and get me outta my dress, (Outta my dress)
Oh

The way that you stare, starts a fire in me (The way you stare at me)
Come up to my room, my sexy little thing (Sexy little thing)
And let's play a game (Yeah), I won't be a tease (No baby)
I'll show you the boom, my sexy little thing (Oh oh oh)

I wish you would push up on me (I wish you would)
I wish you would push up on me (I wish you would)
I wish you would light me up (Light me up)
And say you want me push up on me (And say you want me)

I wish you would push up on me (I wish you would)
I wish you would push up on me (Oh oh)
I wish you would light me up
And say you want me push up one me (Light me up)

We break, break
We break, break
We break, break
We're breaking down

We break, break
We break, break
We break, break
We're breaking down

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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.

Punchline
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.
