Well, she's got me over deep waters
She's got me out on a limb
She's sawed it out from under me
And I ain't even learned to swim.

I keep a-scrathing at the muddy bank
But all I do is slide
I keep a-begging of her to love me
But just to be denied.

Well, somerbodies gonna get wet
Somebodies gonna drown
It looks to me like if this will be
My third time down.

Well she wanted me to take her boatin'
She just wants to paddle around
And her I am twenty miles from shore
And she throwed my paddler down

She pulled my cork from the boat
And here I'm a-sinking fast
If someone won't come rescue me
I don't know how long I'll last.

'Cause, somerbodies gonna get wet
Somebodies gonna drown
It looks to me like this will be
My third time down.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, she wanted me to take her a-wadin'
She just wants to wet her feet
But here I am up to my neck
In the middle of the famous old creek.

I keep a-scrathing at the muddy bank
But all I do is slide
I keep a-begging for her to love me
But just to be denied.

So, somerbodies gonna get wet
Somebodies gonna drown
It looks to me like if this will be
My third time down...

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”

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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.
