And so I can't ignore, my heart is bruised and sore
My sanctuary has been raked, been raked
My soul is coloured red, from all the love I bled
My crucifixion is complete, complete
Now I need a substitute for

The love that you gave
Now I just can't be saved
And there is no salvation for me, yeah
My sin was to touch
But I wanted it too much
Now I know that I've fallen from grace, yeah

No matter how I try, I just can't justify
My absolution is denied, denied
And so I'm left to burn, my body craves and yearns
The beast inside me is alive, alive
Now I need a substitute for...

The love that you gave
Now I just can't be saved
And there is no salvation for me, yeah
My sin was to touch
But I wanted it too much
Now I know that I've fallen from grace, yeah

    I think it's about regretting having sex with a particular person.

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
