Souviens-toi, c'était un jeudi
Souviens-toi, on avait suivi
Le chemin des amoureux
C'était il était une fois nous deux
Souviens-toi, c'était le grand jour
Le grand pas vers le grand amour
C'était encore mieux que ça
C'était nous deux, il était une fois

Un motel sur la route du port
Un soir banal
Deux clients, un veilleur qui s'endort
Sur son journal
Il nous tend à chacun une clé
Nous dit "bonsoir"
Le matin, on avait réservé des chambres à part
On n'ose pas montrer qu'on s'aime
À dix-huit ans à peine

Souviens-toi, c'était un jeudi
Souviens-toi, on avait suivi
Le chemin des amoureux
C'était il était une fois nous deux
Souviens-toi, c'était le grand jour
Le grand pas vers le grand amour
C'était encore mieux que ça
C'était nous deux, il était une fois

On a pris le quatorze au hasard
Un peu gênés
Puis ta robe a glissé dans le noir
On s'est aimés
Quand plus tard le garçon est venu nous apporter
Deux cafés, d'un sourire entendu
Tu t'es cachée
Il n'a pas vu que tu pleurais
L'enfance qui s'en allait

Souviens-toi, c'était un jeudi
Souviens-toi, on avait suivi
Le chemin des amoureux
C'était il était une fois nous deux
Souviens-toi, c'était le grand jour
Le grand pas vers le grand amour
C'était encore mieux que ça
C'était nous deux, il était une fois

Souviens-toi (souviens-toi) souviens-toi (souviens-toi)
Le chemin des amoureux
C'était il était une fois nous deux

Souviens-toi (souviens-toi) souviens-toi (souviens-toi)
C'était encore mieux que ça
C'était nous deux, il était une fois

Souviens-toi (souviens-toi) souviens-toi (souviens-toi)
Souviens-toi (ooh) il était une fois nous deux (souviens-toi)

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”

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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.
