Hmm, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby

You don't have to tell me you've gone to found someone new
'Cause I can feel his presence, whenever I'm a kissing you
How can you ask me to try, try and understand
Well, just put yourself in my place
Go on, just see if you can

I'm a begging you (Don't, don't you let him)
Baby, please (Don't let him, don't let him take your love from me)
I'm begging you, baby (Don't, don't you let him)
Oh no (Don't let him, don't let him take your love from me)

So what if he whispers how much he loves you in your ear
But pay no mind 'cause I love you much more my dear, huh
My love are like mountains
That's how strong it is for you
If you ever walk away in to his arms
Which will surely break my heart in two

I'm begging you (Don't, don't you let him)
Oh no (Don't let him, don't let him take your love from me)
Baby, baby, I'm begging (Don't, don't you let him)
No, no, no, no (Don't let him, don't let him take your love from me)
Oh, I couldn't stand it, baby

If you leave me for him you would truly be unfair
Now, just ask yourself, whenever you needed me, wasn't I always there
Now, I'm begging you, baby, baby, down on my bended knees
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, please stay here with me

Baby, please (Don't, don't you let him)
Oh no (Don't let him, don't let him take your love from me)
Baby, baby, please (Don't, don't you let him)
I couldn't stand it (Don't let him, don't let him take your love from me)
I ain't too proud to beg (Don't, don't you let him)

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.

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,

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.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
