Desperation
Takes to the streets
From out of the back of the house
And into the streets

And you never know who you might meet
If he only plants one little seed
And he's got
Just what you need

I had a dream
I knew how to fly
Out of the prison
Straight out of time

Now I stay awake night after night
I stay awake night after night

Black box
Hey you traveler go
Can't stop
Careful into that dark night
Black box
Hey you traveler go

Invitation
Takes to the streets
Opportunity knocks
And it's him that we seek

So fleeting you know he will run
He's so fleeting you know he will run

I stared right at the flame until I went blind
No expense too small to better my life
Paid for in cash
Delivered by hand
Paid for in cash
Delivered by hand

Black box
Hey you traveler go
Can't stop
Careful into that dark night
Black box
Hey you traveler go

He's got all of the tricks of the trade
He's got all of the tricks of the trade

Thought I heard gunshots from out of the blue
I wasn't sure, so I turned to you
And you'd packed up and left me that day
[...] a note, you'd just run away

I dragged myself up to the hill
I thought you were dead,
So I burned a candle and
Prayed that it couldn't be true
I prayed that it couldn't be true

Black box
Hey you traveler go
Can't stop
Careful into that dark night
Black box
Hey you traveler go

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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”

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
