Ich sah Dich vorüber gehen,
und bevor ich etwas sagen konnte,
wurdest Du vor meinen Augen,
vom Lastwagen überfahren.
Das hat bestimmt sehr weh getan.

Ich schick Dir einen Blumenstrauß
Du liegst im Krankenhaus.

Ich lieg' am Strand,
mit einem eiskalten Getränk in meiner Hand.
Ich hab 'ne Sonnenbrille auf, weil ich sie brauch'.
Die Sonne scheint mir auf den Bauch.
So geht's doch auch!

Ich sah Dich zur Arbeit gehen.
Dreißig Jahre warst du Deiner Arbeit treu,
jetzt haben Sie Dir gekündigt,
fristlos nach all dieser Zeit.
So viel zum Thema Dankbarkeit.

Du hattest gleich 'nen Herzinfarkt.
Und jetzt liegst Du im Sarg.

Ich lieg' am Strand (lieg' am Strand),
mit einem eiskalten Getränk in meiner Hand (in der Hand).
Ich hab 'ne Sonnenbrille auf, weil ich sie brauch'.
Die Sonne scheint mir auf den Bauch.
So geht's doch auch!

Nur ein Nagel im Knie,
nur ein Lachen verloren,
nur ein LKW-Unfall.
Ach, das Leben ist kurz,
und man muß es genießen.
Es ist viel zu schnell vorbei.

Ich lieg' am Strand (lalala lieg' am Strand).
Da wird man immer so ein bisschen arrogant (das ist ja interessant).
Doch mit dem Meer ist es wie mit der Arbeit:
Ja, es ist genug für alle da!

Ich lieg' am Strand (lieg' am Strand),
mit einem eiskalten Getränk in meiner Hand (in der Hand).
Ich hab 'ne Sonnenbrille auf, weil ich sie brauch'.
Die Sonne scheint mir auf den Bauch.
So geht's doch auch!

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”

@[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.

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.

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/
