You and I we're two of a kind
I hate to say it but you'll never relate
What makes you tick
It makes me smile.
You said that I should get away from it all
And bury my head in the sand if I want to
I think you
Should thank me now.

You were lying wide awake in the garden
Trying to get over your stardom
And I could never see you depart us
And you're my baby
You're just another girl
Just another girl

I never mind the way I had to see ya
My working on a day show never explains
Why I see you
And I feel your pain.
I love to wear my work inside of my head
I can't complain but you should never react
The way you did
I feel your time.

You were lying wide awake in the garden
Trying to get over your stardom
And I could never see you depart us
And you're my baby
And you were lying wide awake in the garden
Trying to get over your stardom
And I could never see you depart us
And you're my baby,
You're just another girl
You're just another girl
You're just another girl

    To me the song isn't contradicting at all, because after all, isn't your baby, just another girl to someone? Wasn't she that to you at some point? I think it's just about this girl he saw for a while whom maybe he apparentaly fell for in a way, though I don't know how in love he really has to be. The song is meaningful to me in that it takes it all down to square one, he's got this memory of watching her sunbathing in the garden and it's passionate for him, but at the same time, now she's just another girl. Everything he mentions is in past tense which leads me to believe it's not really meant to be a romantic song, though the music does facilitate that. It's a great, gorgeous song however you interpret it, just my own way of looking at it.

    The beautiful thing about Pete Yorns songs are that he doesn't talk about perfect love, but he speaks of faulty love with endearment. I guess sometimes the faults are what attract us to people, even if they are what inevitably seperate us. I can't wait for his new CD to come out!

    Good song. It's depressing in some ways. I like to listen to it and everytime it rises to many levels.

    This is so amazing his voice and the tune alone make it beautiful, but then the lyrics are absolutely captivating. The first line is the greatest. "You and I, we’re two of a kind, I hate to say it but you’ll never relate, what makes you tick? It makes me smile." It's so like my entire life.

    This was the first Pete Yorn I had heard and I immediately fell in love with it. I love the almost magical feel of the "You were lying wide awake in the garden trying to get over your stardom..," line.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
Album art
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.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
Album art
Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
