I spread my wings
I tried to fly
I believe in myself
When there was nothing right
And I
I know I am dust
I know we are sand
But we give of ourselves
As best as we can
Why does it always rain
On Mondays
For me

Bodies in motion
Bodies at rest
Got to get inside you
Got to get lost
Jump into the water
Jump into your life
Diving in deep
To your ever changing light

I been lost
And I been found
I made my bed
In this sea of sound
And we have been so high
Been so low
Are you the one
That I need to know
Why does it always rain
On Mondays
For me

Bodies in motion
Bodies at rest
Got to get inside you
Got to get lost
Jump into the water
Jump into your life
Diving in deep
To your ever changing light
Into the deep of your ever changing light
Of your ever changing never changing light

Into your light
Into your light

We found love
And we found pain
And I know that you're sinking
'Cause I feel the same
Why does it always rain
On Mondays
For me

Bodies in motion
Bodies at rest
Got to get inside you
Got to get lost
Jump into the water
Jump into your life
Diving in deep
To your ever changing light

Bodies in motion
Bodies at rest
Got to get inside you
Got to get lost
Jump into the water
Jump into your life
Diving in deep
To your ever changing light

    DUDE. HOW CAN NOBODY HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT THIS SONG!!!! This is my second faverote bush song, the other being cold contagious. What the fuck!. anyway... i absoultly love this song with a passion. It's just so powerful. the way it takes you on a rollercoaster. Ups and downs. It rocks, then it makes you wanna cry. i think Its' just about the feelings he feels for a girl and everything she puts him through, physical and emotional. And despite everything he wants to always stay friends. Its creepy how i can realte. this song just touches me. Great song. Rocks

    This really is a great song. I loved the line 'Your child is on fire'. Don't know what it's supposed to mean.. but it's just a bold lyric!

    i love this song. it's one of my favorite bush tracks just b/c of the feeling of the song... sometimes it's so hard to just be friends with someone... b/c a purely platonic relationship btwn. a guy and a girl is so hard to achieve. and this song conveys that. beautiful.

    He is definately talking on many levels about his sexual relationship w/ a chick. " Hush child - lay your sweet lips on me This greed - bigger than you and me Will you come again " have u ever wanted someone that bad? u cannot control your desire (greed). "Tongue tied and a visceral third degree Feel warm - center of gravity" tongie-tied (french kissing or speechless from your desire) visceral is your vein system-when u get sexually excited your veins swell(down there-men & women) that is how men get a hard-on and "center of gravity" is her g-spot! "wash us all away-body never lies" you can't hide an orgasm. Your body will always give away how you feel. u can't hide your true physical desires and responses to another person. "Will you come again Will we stay friends " ok, he knows they have to be together cause they cannot deny what they feel, but he is worried it will screw everything else up. will they be friends still after they have each other or will it be awkward forever after?" There are times when I wish That I was you Thick skinned- cities you drive me through Better than me - you're a woman " he thinks somehow that he feels more pain than she does, that she can easily put their time together past her, possibly to be w/someone else without looking back or remembering him-thinks somehow, she is stronger (emotionally) b/c she is a woman. He must have had a mother that was there for him emotionally and/or that he saw as being "stonger" emotionally than others in his life. "Seven days and my system is free again We rise - lose it on oblivion Falling away - sorry for the way Your child is on fire Lick these my ruby lips Drop your protein pills " ok-this may be far-fetched, but somehow I think he is talking about a woman's cycle-during certain times the "protein pills"- sperm-is "lost on oblivion"-get shot "out there" to never become anything. Or "lick these my ruby lips" he is going down on her and she cums dropping her protein pills-anyway, in the end he says it is just better to "lose yourself" totally enjoy and give into the moment. The feeling you have after that...the kissing...etc. could never fully be explained even with "pretty words".

    This is one of the most sexual songs ever! I think High Way was closest on this one. Almost 90% of this song could be seen as an allusion to oral sex. I dunno, maybe I just have a dirty mind...but "will you come again"? ;-)

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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/

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.
Album art
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.
Album art
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.
