You're still the same girl you always were
You're still the same girl you always were

A few more nights on the street that's all
A few more holes in your arm
A few more years with me, that's all

You're still the same girl

With the same sweet smile that you always had
And the same blue eyes like the sun
And the same clear voice that I always

You're still the same girl
That I love

    A devastatingly sparse and haunting song told from the perspective of a pimp, who sadly attempts to convince one of his prostitutes, now a junkie, that she hasn’t changed, that she’s still the happy sweet girl she was before she met him. He promises her “just a few more nights on a street” then “a few more years”, bleakly suggesting there is no way out. Besides death.

    I noticed that on the version available on Rhapsody, they cut out "holes" and "arm" in the second line of the second verse.

Holiday
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.

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.
