Five o'clock in the morning
You ain't home
Can't help thinking that's strange
Yeah, yeah
Baby I just want you to know
I won't go through it again
Yeah, yeah
Those clouds are closing in

Baby love
And I will not accept this as a part of my life (baby love)
I will not live in fear of what may be (baby love)
And the lessons I have learned
I would rather be alone than watch you
Spinning that wheel for me

You've got a thing about danger
Ain't you getting what you want from me
Ain't you getting what you want from me
You've got a thing about strangers
Baby that's what we used to be (baby that's what we used to be)
You've got a thing about danger baby
I guess the hungry just can't see
One of these days you're gonna bring some home to me

Six o'clock in the morning you ain't phoned
I can't help thinking that's strange (yeah, yeah)
It seems that everybody takes their chances these days
Oh yeah, we're standing in the rain

Baby love
And I will not accept this as a part of my life (baby love)
I will not live in fear of what may be (baby love, oh oh oh)
And the lessons that I learned
I would rather be alone than watch you spinning
Spinning that wheel for me

You've got a thing about danger
Ain't you getting what you want from me (baby don't you love that trash)
You've got a thing about strangers
Baby that's what we used to be (I know you're always chasing that ass)
You've got a thing about danger baby (like it's going out of fashion baby)
I guess the hungry just can't see (just can't see)
One of these days you gonna bring some home to me

Baby love
How can you love me?
When you are playin' with my life? (Save me love)
You say, give me time and I'll do better, I swear (baby love)
Give me time and I'll lead you back to despair

You've got a thing about danger
Ain't you getting what you want from me? (And I don't wanna go back there)
You've got a thing about strangers
Baby that's what we used to be? (I don't wanna go back there)
You've got a thing about danger baby
I guess the hungry just can't see (never going back to that, that's a fact, baby)
One of these days you're gonna bring some home to me
To me
To me

Spinning the wheel
Spinning the wheel
Spinning the wheel
Spinning the wheel

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
