Purple-brown sky lit streetlight
Walking home, there ain't a trace of moonlight
You hold out your hand and everything is so easy
And I think that's the part that scares me

Do you feel the same?
I've been searching within
Looking for the point where you end
And the place where I begin
It's taking so long now, babe

Well, we bathe in the living room lamplight
Casting shadows on the walls
That have heard these sighs before
I don't know if it's over

I guess the years just made us older
And I can't imagine life without you
How I built my world around you
We've been together so long now, babe

I'm seeing spirals, I'm moving with you again
I'm seeing spirals, I'm moving with you again
I'm seeing spirals, I'm moving with you again

Heavy ever-circling dawn light
We've been talking so long
That we've lost just who we are
Like we're looking for answers

Come on and make my heart a dancer
I wanna hear not another word spoken
Let's get lost inside this moment
And I won't take no for an answer now

I'm seeing spirals, I'm moving with you again
I'm seeing spirals, I'm moving with you again
I'm seeing spirals, I'm moving with you again

    Such a sweet song about two people who have been together for the longest time, but are still in love with each other like the day they first met

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.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
