She's there like the heat, she dances like the fireflies
I'm torn like the wind, there's magic in her eyes...
I'm a slave to her love, I'm fooled by her disgui-ise
That mistress of mi-ine, that mistress of mine

She turns like the tide and takes me where I've never been
There's peace at her side, she's a lady and a gypsy quee-een
I'm caught by her spell, sometimes I wish I'd never see-een
That mistress of mi-ine, that mistress of mine

So I say to myself, it's no good being left in the co-old
It's no fun to be out on a she-e-elf
And so sad to be lonely when your old
But I'll never give in, I accept the way that she lives
But could I ever start agai-ai-ain
If I cease to share the love that she gives
That mistress of mi-ine
Dah-da-da-dah, dah-da-dah
Dah-da-dah, dah-da-dah, dah-da-dah
Dah-da-da-dah

She's there like the heat, she dances like the fireflies
I'm torn like the wind, there's magic in her eyes...
I'm a slave to her love, I'm fooled by her disgui-ise
That mistress of mi-ine, that mistress of mine

So I say to myself, it's no good being left in the co-old
It's no fun to be out on the she-e-e-elf
And so said to be lonely when your old
But I'll never give in, I accepted the way that she lives
But could I ever start agai-ai-ain
If I cease to share the love that she gives
That mistress of mi-ine
Oh-oh-oh, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahh
She's a mistress, mistress of mi-i-i-ine
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahh
She's a mistress, mistress of mi-i-i-i-ine
She's a mistress, that mistress of mi-i-i-i-i-ine...
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahh

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.

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/

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
