She knows that the way
To get into her heart is through her head
I waited for her
A little bit each day
A little bit each day
A little bit each day
I waited for her

She knows that the time to be a little girl
Isn't around much longer for her
She only wants to play
She only wants to play
She only wants to play
But I waited for her
I waited for her
I waited for her

Her heart was a toy
She gave away at night
And needed a home
I gave that to her
Every single day
Every single day
Every single day
I waited for her
I waited for her
I waited for her

And she knows that the way
To get into her heart is through her head
I waited for her
A little bit each day
A little bit each day
A little bit each day
I waited for her
I waited for her
I waited for her

And I know that the way to bring her back around is to wait around here for her
There's nothing more to say
There's nothing more to say
There's nothing more to say
I waited for her
I waited for her
I waited for her
I waited for nothing

But I waited for her

    My Interpretation

    I can break it down vs by vs but the singer seems to talk about growing up with a girl that he cares about. He's standing still hoping she'll come around. He basically describes how she treated him like a friend (probably because that's where he fit in her life and she maybe never wanted that much from him). He wants her to like him and treats her the best he can and is her support when she's down but she never feels affection for him. Nice guy getting know where.

    Or they had something and he's hoping it'll revive itself and the passion and relationship will rekindle itself because he worked hard to show her that he adored her and could be faithful .

    Regardless,

    He knows what he could do to get her heart and describes that the ability to make a girl cry or to get in her head is how he can get her attracted to him and emotionally involved. The guy is delusional and is stuck on one person and finally realizes that he needs to move on in order to progress. He's crying for her in the end because he's finally letting that dream go and carrying on. This song is him stating that he's done. No more wasting his time.

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.

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/

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.
