Here she comes again with another boyfriend,
Introduces me and says,this is the sweetest guy I've ever known.
Couldn't say a word I never say a word,
She wraps her arms around my neck.
You are the sweetest guy I've ever known.
And I say again this is the last time.

There she goes again,she says I'm her best friend.
We're better off this way she says.
You're still the sweetest guy I've ever known.
The smell stays on my shirt I can't say a word
And swallow this lump inside my neck.
You are the sweetest girl I've ever known.
And I say again this is the last time.

When you left before I didn't care too much,
Cause I just wished you'd go away (go away yeah)
And I see you now and it's just too much.
It takes my breath away. Just like a sucker punch.

Here she comes again with another boyfriend,
Introduces me and says,this is the sweetest guy I've ever known.
Couldn't say a word I never say a word,
She wraps her arms around my neck.
You are the sweetest guy I've ever known.
And I say again and I said before and I say once more this is the last time.

When you left before I didn't care too much,
Cause I just wished you'd go away (go away yeah)
And I see you now and it's just too much.
It takes my breath away. Just like a sucker punch.

Just like a suckerpunch
Just like a suckerpunch
Just like a suckerpunch
Get up get up

    I'm pretty sure it's about him getting strait up played all the time by the same girl, and he always pretended not to like her

    i have a couple of guy friends who always say this is like their theme song. it's about a guy who is stuck forever as the "sweet guy friend." the girl he likes always has some new bf, and he likes her but she won't hook up with him because she says they're better as friends. girls always use that excuse.

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”

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

American Town
Ed Sheeran

Album art
Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
