ten ten ninety seven
rock springs wyoming hotel
as far as i can tell
i just don't miss you anymore
yawn and the tears tear
streams down the sink
you know what i think?
i can never yawn again

come on so long move on

one two and three
i can see exactly
just where you ruined me
nineteen i said i hated you
but kissed you on twenty-two
and music together
i meant it for a moment
twenty-two and through and through

come on so long move on

i'll keep you here
right next to me
and i promise to wait
if you say you're still coming.

    My Interpretation

    This song is pretty much general. Sometimes when I feel down about some broken relationship I feel like it's about some childhood love. He loves a girl he grew up with, and although they dated sometime in the past, it didnt last longer and he stills feel something about her. And he says he keeps a diary cuz he remember everything up till now.

    When I'm ok, I just feel like he's talking about drugs. He did some drug, and quit but still have some just in case. So he uses, feels bad and curse it, but always come back to kiss it again, and think it will always be this way.

    I relate to this song a lot. I feel like this song is about a girl that he once had a relationship with in the past. They broke it off but hung around with each other again a few years later. They still have feelings for each other and he's waiting for her to commit to being his again, but there's a sense of doubt on whether or not she'll come back.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

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.
