Everybody says you're a lot like me
But I don't know if I feel the same way
You're not a jailer, but I'm not free
I still hang on every word that you say

I don't know what's you and what is me
We're points along a line, but I don't see a boundary
We are all punched out from the same old cast
And we are all vessels, and we contain the past

So I stick around for the spring, you see
But then summer comes, I go free-ranging
You can still be you, I can try to be me
Is it me or just the world that's changing?

My money's on you, I have no doubt
Of all the things we worship, we are the most devout
When we kneel at the altar of ourselves
But today I would give my ragged self away

When you gonna call me?
When you gonna want me?
I'm waiting like a coiled spring
For the telephone to ring
Far away, you call me

I've got a song to sing, I've got words I can borrow
It really doesn't matter if it's raining tomorrow
I've got a song to sing, I've got pain, I've got sorrow
It really doesn't matter what I say, do you follow?

I've got a song to sing, I've got words I can borrow
It really doesn't matter if it's raining tomorrow (really doesn't matter, really doesn't matter, no)
I've got a song to sing, I've got pain, I've got sorrow
It really doesn't matter what I say, do you follow?

When you gonna call me?
When you gonna want me?
I'm waiting like a coiled spring
For the telephone to ring
When you gonna call me?
When you gonna want me?
I'm waiting like a coiled spring
For the telephone to ring

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
