If every day was the same
I would have died years ago
My calendar is marked
With blood red x's
For every twenty-four hours I've suffered through

Today has been cluttered with
Broken teeth and filthy stitches
And a conscience that won't shut up
I understand that your worst is beating the hell out of my best
But I can take it (I can take it)
The one thing that I'll never get
Is how you turned out like all the rest
But I can take it (I can take it)

It says a lot about the difference between me and you
But if you're all I've got
I'll have nothing left
After what I'm about to do
Let's begin this autumn drive
One jerk of the wheel,
We'll see how cold this November water really is

I understand that your worst is beating the hell out of my best
But I can take it (I can take it)
The one thing that I'll never get
Is how you turned out like all the rest
But I can take it (I can take it)

I'd like to kill somebody
Say it like you mean it
I'd like to kill somebody
Let's go for a ride Otis

I'll watch your blood run thin
Through infected wounds
And softened scars again
I'll watch your blood run thin
Through your infected wounds
And softened scars

It's my favorite kind of day
Filled with the things we fear
They'll find us where we sleep
And fuck us where we breathe
And not just fade away
Well I'd like you to fade away
I'd like you to fade away
The way I let you fade away

Today was my favorite kind of day (whoa whoa, whoa whoa)
Today was my favorite kind of day (whoa whoa, whoa whoa)
Today was my favorite kind of day (whoa whoa, whoa whoa)
Today was my favorite kind of day

    this is an amazing song, wrought with moving lyrics guaranteed to inspire a murder...or at least a fist fight, possibly with handicapped people

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”

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
