I feel nervous and I don't know why, but all I had to do is try
Something kept me away from you as another year went by
Every chance I got to see you, I'd drop all I had to do,
Told you I'd be a faithful child. But I got no reply from you

Everytime I'd help you up, you'd knock me down,
Well what's it like now that I'm not around?

Little girl don't need another friend, my patience has reached its end
Told you from the start
You owned my heart
But when he said goodbye
So did I

I'd think about you every day, even though you didn't feel the same way
Thought that I could have your love got down on my knees to pray.
You played with emotions, I even let you have my heart,
But when you said this could not be you tore my life apart.
Well he left you broke and all alone, don't come around cause I'm not home.

I never though of you that way, until you turned all my days gray
I never thought of you that way until you went away that day.

He went and left you high and dry, all the lonely tears you cry
Could not make me go back to you and when you know the reasons why.
You said you learned your lesson, you said you know you were wrong,
If love is blind well now I see that here is where I belong,
He left you broke and all alone, don't come around cause I'm not home.

    he was always there for the girl, he always liked her until he realised she was just keeping him there for something to fall back on. this is basically him saying "fuck off"

    I Agree, This song is about him being such a nice guy and always being there for her when she was down, then he realizes that she was just keeping him there for a failsafe, then say fuck you, i don't need that.

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.

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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
