I am flying.
Dreams are dying
I never wanted anything you said to ever be this way
I really do appreciate the time you spent with me that day
I'll take you out on a Saturday
But will it feel the same?
We'll drive around Dream out loud
Think of yesterday

(Chorus)
We'll talk for hours
I'll buy you flowers
You'll be my company
We'll get in my car
We'll drive out real far
I'll be your company

I am flying.
Dreams are dying
I never wanted anything you said to ever be this way
I really do appreciate the time you spent with me that day

(Chorus)

I had a dream that I was in school
I learned about all the things you
Thought would make me cool
From politics and fashion too
Nothing was too good to learn for you

I am flying.
Dreams are dying
I never wanted anything you said to ever be this way
I really do appreciate the time you spent with me that day
I'll take you out on a Saturday
But will it feel the same?
We'll drive around Dream out loud
Think of yesterday

(Chorus)

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”

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/
