Sail is everybody was still sleeping
Imagine me the only one alive
not a single sound in town
Not a living soul around
It's so lonely on a Sunday afternoon

Last night found me filled with joy and laughter
Talking just joking until dawn
In this dusky lumina light
I keep clinging to last night
I'm so lonely on a Sunday afternoon

Friends, so I am told, never leave you in the cold
Now friends to me, it's just another word
On my own, did not pay my telephone

Kill my time by looking at the ceiling
Seeing faded pictures passing by
Like a puzzle that confuses me
They amaze me and amuse me
Still I'm lonely on a Sunday afternoon

Not a single sound sound in town
Not a living soul around
It's so lonely on a Sunday afternoon

Friends, so I am told, never leave you in the cold
Now friends to me, it's just another word
On my own, did not pay my telephone

Kill my time by looking at the ceiling
Seeing faded pictures passing by
Like a puzzle that confuses me
They amaze me and amuse me
Still I'm lonely in a Sunday afternoon

This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

The Last Dance
Within Temptation
@Kahiara Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
