That's alright
That's Ok
I'll keep holding on today
'Cause I'm waiting for the starlight in your eyes

No more faith
No more hope
All that I can do is grope
For a shred of loving care from my girl

The pain you felt has burdened you
You can't feel loved
I'm glad that I have been with you
But thats not enough

In your arms I would be
Overjoyed as any boy
Holding on to what he loves
Oh so much

Feel your touch every night
When I dreamed to be alright
There you are in front of me
With your smile

The pain you felt has burdened you
You can't feel loved
I'm glad that I have been with you
But thats not enough
Whoa, thats not enough

The pain you felt has burdened you
You can't feel loved
I'm glad that I have been with you
But thats not enough
Whoa, thats not enough

In your arms I would be
Overjoyed as any boy
Holding on to what he loves
Oh so much

Holding on to what he loves
Oh so much

Holding on to what he loves
Oh so much

    This is a great weezer song. A shame they didn't put it on Green Album... To me it's about loving someone whose afraid to love you back because of the pain that he/she has felt from past loves.

    i know Rivers said that all the songs from the green album era are all emotionless, but some of thing are really quite moving, for me anyways. this one relates to a relationship i'm pretty much in, and songs like 'i do', 'always' and 'o girlfriend' are some of the prettiest songs weezer have done. just because their not personal doesn't make them emotionless. great song. anyways, that's what i think...

    I know the feeling of not being able to love someone back who loves you, so it's sad to hear the other side and their relentless devotion.

    Yeah it does have really close similar parts to O Girlfriend. Could this have been written before O Girlfriend, and O Girlfriend formed somehow out of this?

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”

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
