I think I could love
You people
I think I could love
Some of you people

If you weren't so afraid
Of what you dont know
Sometimes you're so afraid
Of what you don't know
But you say that that's not so

Can you see your children
Looking to the sea
I have watched all your children
Looking to the sea

If you just would understand
But you won't know
You never understand
And so you won't know
But you'll say that that's not so
And you'll say that that's not so

It's so frightening to see you burn
It's so beautiful to watch you cry
And now I'm going to fly
And you won't know
And now I'm going to fly
And you won't know
Still you'll say that that's not so

I think I can love
You people
Sometimes I think I could love
Some of you people
If you weren't so afraid

    I have no clue...It could be about people in France, hence the Lay Playa part...

    It's a great song though

    La Playa means "the beach" in Spanish, yes.

    As for what this song means, my explanation might be completely off, but I'm going to run with it. To me, it sounds like it's being sung from the viewpoint of someone non-human or someone otherwise not part of the "normal". And even though he doesn't fully understand how everyone else operate, he observes them, and wants to join them. To me, it's almost like a Frankenstein's monster kind of idea. He's lonely, and has an innocent sort of wisdom, but people are afraid of him or what he has to say.

    Boy Hits Car owns my soul, period. They're so underrated.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
