A hole that big
I'd never seen before
In the tummy of a good ol' boy
Who always wanted more.
Then just yesterday
I saw him satisfied.
It seems he'd met the hole fixin' man,
Much to his surprise.

But are you for real?
Mr. Hole Fixin' Man,
You fixed my friend can you fix me?
Hey Mr. Hole Fixin' Man,
I'm as broken as a boy can be,
So how 'bout fixin' me?

And all the charms
That never were enough
It seems the hole was always
Twice as big no matter what it was,
But to see him now
Is almost to believe
That maybe Mr. Hole Fixin' Man
Might have what I need.

But are you for real?
Mr. Hole Fixin' Man,
You fixed my friend can you fix me?
Hey Mr. Hole Fixin' Man,
I'm as broken as a boy can be,
So how 'bout fixin' me.

Mr. Hole Fixin' Man,
He says you died on Calvary.
Hey Mr. Hole Fixin' Man,
If you've got proof I will believe,
So how 'bout fixin' me.

Won't you please,
won't you please.
Start by fixin' me,
Start by fixin' me.

    the lyrics to this pretty much say what the songs about this guy's friend got saved and started a relationship with Jesus and his friend is seeing how much he's changed for the better and wants proof that could God do that for him too and God's so awesome He always can!

    i love this song, its beautifully written, i love the line"he says you died on calvary, if you've got proof i will believe" cause many people are like that and they dont wanna take the leap of faith without knowing what is in store of the future

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.

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”

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
