yesterday seems faraway and i can see it true
i don't believe you're leaving me with nothing on the tube
operating slowly as the air is growing thin
wake me up each morning don't forget to plug me in
have you seen me lately i'm as happy as a loon
wait until your ship comes in and pasteurise your crew

and i don't believe in a life that i can't feel
and i don't believe in a life that i can't feel
constellations overhead shine lightly down on you
their influences unrelated to your present mood
and i can see you're on your own although your heart is true
so come in 'cos your card is up your time is overdue

i don't believe in a life that i can't feel
and i don't believe in a life that i can't feel

i've made up my mind the fire is lit
i had to buy my bed i'd better lie on it
but what does it matter i'm lost in space
i'm just another loser in the human race
you're forcing my hand to make it plain
i'm not very happy and i cannot explain
well i can feel better by looking the part
i have to find a way to stay true to my heart

i love my girl and she loves me
i won't find another who can sail my sea
she's in my head and on my mind
i'm off my rocker with a girl so fine

well here's the hour and where will it end
i can't buy a t shirt to impress all my friends
i'm trying my hardest i'm trying to fit in
i'll make a new start i don't know where to begin
i'll make a new start i don't know where to begin
i'll make a new start i don't know where to begin
i'll make a new start i don't know where to begin
i'll make a new start i don't know where to begin
i'll make a new start i don't know where to begin
i'll make a new start i don't know where to begin
i'll make a new start i don't know where to begin
i'll make a new start i don't know where to begin

    starts on a downer but has a refreshingly optimistic ending

    probably the best supergrass song ever

    THIS IS WHAT I READ ON MTV.COM ON THIS SONG

    Faraway\"\" grinds the meat of self-doubt with a pensive melody in an ominous, tom-tom pounding frenzy that mirrors, both lyrically and melodically, Supertramp\'s \"\"Logical Song.\"\"

Magical

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
