Hey, yeah, yeah
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh yeah

It's over and done
But the heartache lives on inside
And who is the one you're clinging to
Instead of me tonight?

And where are you now
Now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow
Wherever you go, go
I'll cry me a river
That leads to your ocean
You'll never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotions taking me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in the song
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world to hold me tight
And don't you know there's nobody left in this world kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight

I'm there at your side
A part of all the things you are
But you got a part of someone else
You gotta go find your shining star

And where are you now
Now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow
Wherever you go
I'll cry me a river
That leads to your ocean
You'll never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotions taking me over (taking me over)
Caught up in sorrow, lost in the song (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world to hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to hold me tight
Nobody left in this world kiss goodnight
Nobody left in this world

And where are you now
Now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow
Wherever you, you go
I'll cry me a river
That leads to your ocean
You'll never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotions taking me over
I'm caught up in sorrow, lost in the song (don't you know I'm lost without you, baby)
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
Nobody left in this world to hold me tight (yeah, nobody, nobody to hold me)
Nobody left in this world kiss goodnight (nobody to kiss me, yeah)
Goodnight
Goodnight

    After a break up, or a general agreement which refers the relationship be over and done with.. she's saying that how that she needs, him.. he's not around. Once things get rough, he runs away. Although bad things have happened, she was always there for him.. always willing to work things through. And still now, even though there's no reason for him to still love him.. she does. She still loves him, and believes that no one will be able to replace him.. although she knows it'll never happen, she continues to hope that he might appreciate what he's lost and come back.. and at the same time, is still trying to cope and accept that it's really over.

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.
Album art
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”

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
