Can I call you sometime?
Talk it out on the phone
We don't have to be lovers
We could be less alone

It's a rough, rocky road
And it's going to get steep
I just wanted your soft tone
To allow me to sleep

And I sometimes confuse you
For god or angel
You're just a person
And I'm sometimes confused
I got glory in my mind
A soft summer unwinds

I just want you to know
All your problems are mine
I will breathe them like fire smoke
I will make us divine

Underneath your thin skin
We are prophets on hold
Elemental disciples
Waiting for our time to unfold

And I sometimes confuse you
For god or angel
You're just a person
And I'm sometimes confused
I got glory in my mind
A soft summer unwinds

And I dreamt about you breathing
We're all in thrall to the past
I dreamt about you leaving
Living in the same house
You kiss awkward, lips dried and closed
He was the first one you cared for
It lasted for years

And I close my eyes, to see you again
And I close my eyes, to see you again

And I sometimes confuse you
For god or angel
You're just a person
And I'm sometimes confused
I got glory in my mind
A soft summer unwinds

And I sometimes confuse you
For god or angel, you're just a person
And I'm sometimes confused
I got

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”

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.
