ÚLtimamente ando algo perdido
Me han vencido viejos fantasmas
Nuevas rutinas
Y en cada esquina acecha un ratero
Para robarme las alhajas, los recuerdos
Las felicidades
De un tiempo a esta parte
Llego siempre tarde
A todas mis citas
Y la vida me parece una fiesta
A la que nadie
Se ha molestado en invitarme
De un tiempo a esta parte
Me cuesta tanto, tanto, tanto no amarte
Últimamente ando desconcertado

Así que ponte a salvo
Porque en este estado ando como loco
Y me enamoro de mujeres comprometidas
Llenas de abrazos, llenas de mentiras
De un tiempo a esta parte
A mi amor propio algo le falta
Lo has dejado unos puntos
Por debajo del de Kafka
Y la vida me parece una fiesta
A la que nadie
Se ha molestado en invitarme
De un tiempo a esta parte
Me cuesta tanto, tanto, tanto
Me cuesta tanto no amarte
Últimamente planeo una huida

Para rehacer mi vida
Probablemente en Marte
Seguro que allí no hay nadie
Empeñado en aconsejarme
Ismael qué te pasa
No estudias, no trabajas
Y qué vamos a hacerle
Si es que últimamente ando algo perdido
Si te necesito
Si de un tiempo a esta parte
Me cuesta tanto, tanto, tanto
Me cuesta tanto no amarte
Han de venir tiempos mejores
Cometeré más errores
Daré menos explicaciones
Y haré nuevas canciones
En las que te cuente como, últimamente
Son tan frecuentes tristes amaneceres
Ahogando mis finales
Repetidos, cansados, miserables
Llenos de soledades
Si de un tiempo a esta parte
Me cuesta tanto, tanto, tanto
Me cuesta tanto no amarte

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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
