I want you now, tomorrow won't do
There's a yearning inside and it's showing through
Reach out your hands and accept my love
We've waited for too long, enough is enough
I want you now

My heart is aching, my body is burning
My hands are shaking, my head is turning
You understand it's so easy to choose
We've got time to kill, we've got nothing to lose
I want you now

And I don't mean to sound like one of the boys
That's not what I'm trying to do
I don't want to be like one of the boys
I just want you now

'Cause I've got a love, a love that won't wait
A love that is growing and it's getting late
Do you know what it means to be left this way?
When everyone's gone, the feelings they stay
I want you now

и социально-психологические проблемы гонки вооружений
В докладах рассматривается эволюция ядерных арсеналов

    this is my favourite DM song. everything out of david's mouth is sexy."

    Martin sings this song; Dave doesn't sing at all... Well, unless you count the groaning, which you can hear loudly in the foreground at the very beginning, as well as in the background throughout the entire song.

    Wow, I mean, I've been in lust for a girl before, but this is off the charts! Haha. Great song by a great band. Martin Gore is a master, and of a dying breed of shy gentlemen that you just don't see around any more. This song is special because it puts the carnal act of sexual lust out in the open, and then proves this is a very normal very human desire. I like how he IS serious about it. Everyone in rock/pop has to make everything about sex oh so taboo, when in fact its a completely natural thing. I think too often men don't know how to handle bursts of sex drive. Martin L. Gore is great because he won't beat around the bush, but he will be tender about it.

    I agree anything comming out of Dave's mouth is sexy. There is no voice on earth that even remotely resembles his.

    Yes, Martin sings the song. And the groaning you hear at the beginning is the sound you get from accordion when no key is pushed down. So it's purely synthetic.

    God, this song is sexy. Martin's voice is perfect on this one. Look at the words closely though. This song goes beyond him telling his girl how much he wants her.

    It's an ultimatum.He's basically saying that if she doesn't give in, he's going to find someone else to have sex with, because the urge is too strong for him to deny.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Dreamwalker
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.
Album art
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
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.
Album art
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.
