solitaire, such a fateful game
she turns her cards and writes her name on the napkin
mow she turns another card
she dreams about the house and romance
he promised but won't deliver

she waits alone
with dried out hopes
and dormant phone
she waits for years
and fantasies melt
new ones appear
but they won't help

and again she catches him
eye pulls away with light too dim
she calls his name and runs around
but he was faster
all alone in a bad part of town

she waits again
with dried out hopes
and things made for him
a little ride, a little fun was all
he held her tight, got tired and then let go

the strain on her heart
she believed a lying blackheart
painted with promises
then he left her on the floor
with only the mirror to curse
"should've known better"
but how she cried...

    It;s abour a relationship gome bad. He;s never there for her, nibidy is. She;s very lonely. Cinstanly hoping things will get better "some day" bvut they never do. She just keeps waiting for something to happen but he doesnt even act like he cares about her. And she seems to blame herself.

    I love Toad as a band, and I need to hear more of their songs. However, I'm not understanding this motif of violent anti-male subject matter in a number of their songs. It almost seems as if they hold the stereotypical societal belief that a majority of men are trash and have no social redeeming value; and that women are Christocentric, omniscient, perfect souls who are simply at the mercy of men, and are held back in every way because of it.

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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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/

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.
