Hang on for the ride
I think I feel a change of tide
Just stay for one night
One day you’re going to be my wife
You’ll never have to worry again
I’m going to be your man

Oh someday
When tall-boys turn into champagne
When bologna turns into steak
When I got gold instead of change
When I can give you everything you
Ever wanted instead of take oh someday

I wish you could depend on me
I want to have your mouth to feed
I want to put your mind at ease
No reason you'd ever leave
You and I can both be free
Well things ain't so cool right now
Well I promise it'll get better
Find anyway somehow that'll make you
Want to stay forever

Oh someday
When tall-boys turn into champagne
When bologna turns into steak
When I got gold instead of change
When I can give you everything you
Ever wanted instead of take oh someday
When I can give you everything you
Ever wanted instead of take oh someday

I wish you could depend on me
I want to have your mouth to feed
I want to put your mind at ease
No reason you'd ever leave
You and I can both be free
Well things ain't so cool right now
Well I promise it'll get better
Find anyway somehow that'll make you
Want to stay forever

Oh someday
When tall-boys turn into champagne
When bologna turns into steak
When I got gold instead of change
When I can give you everything you
Ever wanted instead of take oh
When I can give you everything you
Ever wanted instead of take oh someday

Hang on for the ride
I think I feel a change of tide
Just stay for one night
One day you’re going to be my wife

Oh someday
When tall-boys turn into champagne
When bologna turns into steak
When I got gold instead of change
When I can give you everything you
Ever wanted instead of take oh someday

    This is definitely the song from the point of view of a pusher communicating either directly or subliminally to a drug addict in rehab counting the days when they are free to go out.

    The dealer is saying someday, thing's'll get better.

    Isn't it amazing how bands talk about this stuff in code?

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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”

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/

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.
