A second, a minute, and hour, a day goes by.
I'm hopin' just to be by your side.
I'm turnin' the handle
It won't open.
Don't make me wait, cause right now I need your smile.

Knock Knock
When life had locked me out, I turned to you
So open the door.
You're all I need right now its true.
Nothin' works like you.

Little louder [Repeat: x3]
Knockin'
Little louder [Repeat: x2]

A warm bath, a good laugh, an old song that you know by heart.
I've tried it but they all leave me cold.
So now I'm here waiting to see you,
My remedy for all that's been hurting me.

Knock Knock
When life had locked me out, I turned to you
So open the door.
You're all I need right now its true.
Nothin' works like you.

You seem to know the way
To turn my frown upside down
You always know what to say
To make me feel like everything?s ok.

Little louder [Repeat: x3]
Knockin' [Repeat: x3]
Little louder [Repeat: x2]

Knock Knock
When life had locked me out, I turned to you
So open the door.
You're all I need right now its true.
Nothin' works like you.

Knock Knock
When life had locked me out, I turned to you
So open the door.
You're all I need right now its true.
Nothin' works like you.

Little louder [Repeat: x3]
Knockin'
Nothin' works like you, oh oh
Little louder [Repeat: x3]
Knockin'

Knock Knock
When life had locked me out, I turned to you
So open the door.
You're all I need right now its true.
Nothin' works like you.

    Oh, just beautiful. Love Lenka, such beautiful songs to sing, really my style! Seems to be about a boyfriend, or even just a friend, who can cheer her up and she needs to be with. A great cure to life, just like my friends!

    this song is so nice, the rhythm, beats and lyrics as well. yeah it's for someone who can cheer you up and comforts you so much in times of trouble, but most of it, it can also be to GOD...

    "When life has Locked Me Out I turn to you And you open the door 'Cause you're what I need right now it's true... Nothing works like you"

    ..coz everything works in Him.

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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/

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.
