It was nothing like that in my day
Here in my town
We didn't get things all our way.
Till we were full-grown
Now they go into pubs.
And you're gonna get mugged
In my town
So you read about it every day
In the headlines
How they take and take and drive away.
Sex and late nights
And it's gotta be wrong.
Because they're so young

They're only bits of kids.
They're only bits of kids
It's always bits of kids today

She makes the breakfast, one of eight
All in one room
Each uncle's call keeps them up late.
Yes, in this town
And he won't go home 'cause he'll just be alone till night time

They're only bits of kids.

They're only bits of kids
It's always bits of kids today
Broken cities, 'n' broken homes.
Bits of kids who don't grow whole
Broken cities, 'n' broken hearts.
Bits of people who fall apart

And it seems there's nothing anyway
Not here in this town
Everything is only yesterday.
And on the way down
And we're gonna be wrong.
So we gotta be strong
In our town

We're bits of kids.
We're only bits of kids
It's only bits of kids today
Bits of kids.
We're always
Here in my town

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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."

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.

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.
