I want you back again
Yeah

Your ain't too short
You ain't that tall but you're heading for a fall
You ain't too young to look that old
You're worth your weight in gold

Come back Suzanne, come back Suzianna now
Baby, baby, please come back
Come back Sue, come back Suzianna
Can't you leave the man? I want you back again

You're such a heart breaker, such a heart breaker
And you got a lot of gold
Folk town living make me sing
And move my back against the wall

Come back Suzanne, come back Suzianna now
Baby, baby, please come back
Come back Sue, come back Suzianna
Can't you leave the man?

'Cause the kitchen needs cleaning and the dishes in the sink
The clothes need washing and the washer's broken down
The lawn needs cutting and the gardener's quit in
And the cats having kittens and the dog's gone

Please come back Suzanne, come back Suzanne
Come back Suzanne, can't you leave the man?
Come back Suzanne, come back Suzianna now
Baby, baby, please come back

Come back Sue, come back Suzianna now
What am I gonna do?
I can't stand it, I can't stand it
I can't stand it, I can't stand it

The gold fish are dying and the bowls gone green
I've got rings around the toilet, been laughing on the phone
The sheets need changing and the bed's begun to squeak
The parrot's stopped talking and it's only been a week

Come back Suzanne, come back Suzanne
Come back Suzanne, can't you leave the man?
Come back Suzanne, come back Suzianna now
Baby, baby, please come back

Come back Sue, come back Suzianna
What am I gonna do?
Come back Suzanne, come back Suzianna now
Baby, baby, please come back

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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."
