Lime-colored leaves are bending and blowing
In the springtime of life
Lime-colored leaves are blending and knowing
And I bet I'll survive
Survival is hardly the point

Oh, you're my kind of daydream
I'll foster ambitions
Break down inhibitions
'Til realizations take over
And wishes convert into kisses galore
And I'll dream no more

I'll be so in the moment
Putting your hand in mine (so in the moment)
Finding gold in the silver mine (so in the moment)
Not a thorn on the vine (so in the moment)
Of roses in the summertime

When the old times are fading fast
The pleasures will come at last
I'll take you for my own
And I won't let go

Lime-colored leaves still bending and blowing
With a walk in the park
Arm-and-arm with my true love
The roses have faded
Bad choice of remark
Complacency strikes at the heart

Now we're balancing upon the curb
Please don't say another word
Way down below
There's still sharks in the road
I want to jump in like Paul McCartney and Wings
"I feel like letting go"

I'll be so in the moment
Begging your forgiveness (so in the moment)
Then saying I couldn't care less (so in the moment)
My darling, don't get upset (so in the moment)
You know I'm only joking

It's a long way to yesterday
No matter what I do or say
It keeps getting further away

Well, now, all the things I meant to say
I think I'll say them anyway
The seasons, the fallen leaves
The curve of time and all it weaves
Now flood through my mind
I want to make you my wife
For the rest of my life

I am so in the moment
So in the moment
So in the moment
So in the moment

Wrestling with our love's demise, we're out of the mire (so in the moment)
Making up for lost time, floating dreams of desire (so in the moment)
Got our medications and the bus is for hire (so in the moment)
Say "I do" and say "I will," jump into the fire

Don't you let me down again

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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.

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.

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.
