You, you would always see the signs
The echoes in my head they rhyme
I feel we never went at all
Tomorrow is another day
I don't know when I'll feel anymore
Feeling all these things before
And all that I would do

You, you would always see the signs
The echoes in my head they rhyme
I felt they never went home at all
Tomorrow is another day, that we need
I don't know where I'll be searching for, the things I've seen
And I'm feeling all these things before, I go through
All that I would do, I do for you, oh

Round about, a quarter past
We rustle up all inside
Of everyone, and everything
That didn't owe us too well
And in our hearts
The matter is, they know the reason too well
I heard the rain, it never came
When we, oh oh oh

And I'd better get in control
Of this heavy vehicle
Or else I'll go and then I'll go and explode
To the place that I adore
Seen places on the shore
Where you've been and where no sun is a sin
Been packing all night long
To get ready for some fun
And you go, and you go evermore
I hate feeling in control
I want someone else's role
But I'm here and I'll do anything

Together this is a heart attack
Im gonna get off in a sec
But for now, I'm having way too much fun
To the place that I adore
Seen places on the shore
Where did you go?
And where did you go everyone?
Been packing all night long
To get ready for some fun
And you go, and you go evermore
I hate feeling in control
I want someone else's role
But I'm here and I'll do anything

    My Interpretation

    It sounds like he loves her, and she knows. But he doesn't do anything about it. It just sounds nastalgic, like he's looking back on what could have happened or the opportunities that he never did anything about it.

    My Interpretation

    I think he's meeting with the one he loves and he just can't gather his thoughts and is feeling dumb and so good that it's nostalgic.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
