I dont dont dont believe i fell asleep talk's a waste of time
the roller coaster that I rode with her on valentines
and all i see i dont dont dont believe
and what you see is what you get with me
wasting all your time
going all the way, looking so helpless
everyday
daddy's little defect
all the same
keep your secret away from me
if you want to be mine
so dont dont dont make a sound your fathers around to play with your head
a gift wrapped guilt-trip kisses left you naked in your bed
and all i see i don't don't don't believe
and what you see is what you get with me
wasting all your time
wasting all your time
(chorus x 2)
letting go, letting go again, letting go
let 'em go, and you're left with nothing
let go it will be alright
doesn't matter cause its free to waste your life
I don't don't don't believe I fell asleep talks a waste of time
the roller coaster that I ride with her
wasting all your time
wasting all your time
(chorus x 3)

    "Defect" means a problem or blemish, and I think that he's talking about the girl he likes being her daddy's problem. Like a black sheep, ya know? Anyway, I absolutely love this song and the part that says "The roller coaster that I rode with her on Valentine's" is just awesome.

    This song (to put it bluntly) is about your girlfriend being a slut. Daddy's Little Defect...Daddy's Little Nightmare, you know.

    This song is SO awesome.

    It's definitely about being hated by your father, so you turn to sexual problem solvers. The verse "a gift wrapped guilt-trip kisses left you naked in your bed" is the GREATEST part o the song, becuase you can figure out what it's about.

    I thought this song was about this girl, and her father abuses her, I'd be guessing sexually as for it says "so dont dont dont make a sound your fathers around to play with your head a gift wrapped guilt-trip kisses left you naked in your bed" And the term "Daddy's little defect" ment.. Like her father had hurt her, broken her, hence the "defect". And when he says "keep your secret away from me if you want to be mine " He's saying "Don't tell me about your issues, unless you want to be mine" But I don't know, maybe I was wrong. :\

    i think its about him and a girl in a relationship. she has more issues than he thinks... he just wants to have fun w/ her but at home her daddy abuses her. and he doesn't wanna get involved so he says 'keep ur secrets away from me if u wanna be mine'.. he knows something creepy is goin down in her home 'everything i see i dont dont dont believe' but he doesn't wanna admit it so he reassures her 'what u see is what u get w/ me'... i dunno i'll leave it at that

    I got the same inpression as ColorMeComplex when I first heard this song, but I think everyone else has the right idea now that I think about it. This song makes me sad though everytime I hear it b/c I'm reminded of when I had to leave the Sugarcult concert early in the show (during this song), b/c my ride screwed me over. Lucky for me I got to talk to Marko before the show & he is one of the nicest people I've ever met. Can't wait to see them again 8.06.02!!

    I think this song is about a girl who's neglected by her father, and as a result she turns rebellious and turns into a little slut. To understand the true meaning of this song you need to pay close attention to the sexual innuendos. You figure it out.

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”

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.

Punchline
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.

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.
