Too much of a good thing
Has really burnt me out
I'm sick of satisfaction
And living in a drought

Just be yourself
Anyway that you want to
Just be yourself
Anyway that you can
Just be yourself
Anyway that you want to, baby
Just be yourself
Anyway that you can

The center of attention
Is living on the edge
The thirty of second floor
I'm standing on a ledge

Got to get this straight
'cause we're running too late

Just be yourself
Anyway that you want to, baby
Just be yourself
Anyway that you can
Just be yourself
Anyway that you want to baby
Just be yourself
Anyway that you can

Just be yourself
Anyway that you want to, baby
Just be yourself
Anyway that you can
Just be yourself
Anyway that you want to, baby
Just be yourself
Anyway that you can
Just be yourself
Anyway that you want to
Just be yourself
Anyway that you can
Just be yourself
Anyway that you want to, baby
Just be yourself
Anyway that you can
Just be yourself
Anyway, baby
Just be yourself
Anyway that you can

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

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.

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.
