Hey, where have you gone?
You used to be the one
That we looked up to
Seemed like nothing could break you down
How high was your price?
Was it worth it?
Nothing in life is a sure bet anyway, you're gone
Guess you weren't here from the start
In the end
Its all a question of heart

Hey, where have you gone?
You used to be the one
That we looked up to
Seemed like nothing could break you down
How high was the price?
And was it worth it?
Nothing in life is a sure bet anyway, you're gone
I guess you were here from the start
In the end
Its all a question of heart

Hey, where did it go?
Everything we fought for
And everything it meant,
Maybe we were just naive
But I still believe
There are only a few things
That really belong to make who I am
Who I was
Who I want to be
Who I want to be

Hey, where have I gone?
I used to be the one
Looking for a hero
In some far off place
Blindly ever forward
Never knowing all along
The truth was right here in my own song

    This song is the reason I like the 'Souls. It's a great anti-depressant song.

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”

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
