My life is so complete
Everything is straightened out
I feel the touch of God
I feel a sense of doubt

But there's something about
The straight and narrow

My life is so complete
Everything is straightened out
I feel the touch of God
I feel a sense of doubt

But there's something about

This is the big one
Get out the Christ-kill
We need no one
We need no one

Deep in your twisted mind
You're helping all mankind
Redeem the world
Redeem the world

But there's something about

Jessica
We're smashing ultraviolet
Dimming the nerves
As we sit beneath a sunset

Jessica
Ultraviolet
Dead summer, a rotting corpse is in the sunlight

My life is so complete
Everything is straightened out
I feel the touch of God
I feel a sense of doubt

But there's something about
Please get me out
But there's something about

Don't fool yourself.
They ate shit, covered in shit, eatin' their own crap.
They were seein' things, parking their fuckin' cars up near the mountain.
They bathed in shit, undercover 'n' shit, they'd blow crap up and put secret things in it.

    The title is self explanatory, the man is not content.

    I always thought the lyric was "There's something about the here and now." I always thought it was about having two sexual/romantic options and choosing the most appealing at the moment, instant gratification over building a future.

    That said, "get off the cross dear, we need the wood." is my favorite, of many great MOLG lyrics.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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/

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
