My God it's good to see you
My God it's good to see you
My God it's good to see you

Another day another dollar
Another day another dollar
Another kill for the corporate collar
Why I wake and why I bother

I run second to no-one and no-one to me
I run second to no-one and no-one to me
I can't see it to be it to be it to be
I can't be what the world can't be to me
I wake up and the world just steps on me

My God it's good to see you
My God it's good to see you
My God it's good to see you

Another day another dollar
Another page another chapter
Ain't I one to kill the laughter

Whatever matters if it matters it matters
Whatever matters if it matters it matters to me
Whatever matters it should matter and matter to all

The bigger we build the bigger the faster we fall
And if it happens to one it happens to all
Remember me when the world comes to take you

The more I look the more I learn
The more I learn the more I can discern
The more I look the more I want to know
The more I know the more I want to grow
The more I feel the more I want to see
The more I see the more I want to be
The more I look the more I realise

I see this world is facing her demise
Money God
Money God
Money God
Rise and shine

I wake up it's enough I wake at all
Hate to have to say it but some don't wake at all
Money money the hand that plays us all
The new day and these eyes never fail me
I run second to no-one and no-one to me
I can't see it to be it to be it to be
I can't be what the world can't be to me
I wake up and the world just steps on me

My God it's good to see you
My God it's good to see you
My God it's good to see you
Another day another dollar

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.

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”

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.
