Is this not an inquisition baby
You're not the first I've told
That I'm gonna wake up lonely someday
And I'm gonna wake up old
It took me higher and higher and higher
But then that was a while ago
And I've got a restless feeling baby
So I think it's best you know
Oh I could've done the righteous thing
But we're all gonna die someday
I'm not gonna look you in the eye
And tell you it's all okay
And I've got a restless feeling baby
So I think it's best you know
Oh I could've done the righteous thing
But we're all gonna die someday
I'm not gonna look you in the eye
And tell you it's all okay

Runaway
It's okay
Runaway
It's okay

Now I got a new position
And it's difficult to address
There ain't no easy way of saying
But I'm getting it off my chest
It took me higher and higher and higher
So I'm sorry to be so low
But I've got a restless feeling baby
That I think it's best to go
Oh I could've done the righteous thing
But we're all gonna die someday
And maybe I lack discretion darling
But I don't know what to say

Runaway
It's okay
Runaway
It's okay

Oh I could've broke your heart I guess
But, what else could I have done?
But I'm looking after number 1 now
Maybe I've got to,
Maybe I've got to,
Maybe I've got to learn

Runaway
It's okay
Runaway
It's okay
Runaway
It's okay
Runaway
It's okay

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.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
