I got a girl who lives with me
I got a girl, she smells so sweetly
I got a girl, she loves her dog
I got a girl, I love her dog too
I got a girl who stares in the mirror
I got a girl who blames it on her period
I got a girl, she is so right
I got a girl, she's my guiding light

Well I know what I need
And I feel we're going higher and higher
Well I know what I need
And I feel we're going higher and higher

I got a girl who loves good soul
I got a girl who dances to disco
I got a girl who wears cool shoes
I got a girl who wears them in the nude

I got a girl who speaks her mind
I got a girl, she'll argue anytime
I got a girl, she is so small
I got a girl, she'll knock down any wall

Well I know what I need
And I feel we're going higher and higher
Well I know what I need
And I feel we're going higher and higher

Get a load of this
She's always bitching at me when I'm feeling down
Asking questions with her little frown
I can't take much much more of this
I'm out, I'm out, I'm out, I'm out, I'm
Get a load of this
She's always bitching at me when I'm feeling down
Asking questions with her little frown
I can't take much much more of this
I'm out, out, out, out, out, out, out, out

I got a girl I love to kiss
I got a girl I never want to miss
I got a girl who's my best friend
I got a girl that won't even hold my hand

I got a girl that makes me laugh
I got a girl, I'll make her laugh too
I got a girl, she has girlfriends
I got a girl, I like her girlfriends

Well I know what I need
And I feel we're going higher and higher
Well I know what I need
And I feel we're going higher and higher

Well I know what I need (I need)
And I feel we're going higher and higher
Well I know what I need
And I feel we're going higher and higher

I got a girl
I got a girl
I got a girl
And she's got a guy

    i think when he says 'and shes got a guy' he means himself. its all one girl, a girl he loves who's like all girls, complicated and sometimes lame but loveable.

    My Interpretation

    I haven't listened to this song in years! I used to always just think it was sort of comical, especially the last line. But as I write this, the way I'm perceiving the lyrics, are of course associated with recent events that have happened in my life. So I figure I'll write this as a first person post, where I and the singer are one person. Hope my thoughts are relevant:

    VERSE 1: I got a girl who lives with me-- in the beginning lines of this song I'm indicating the near beginnings or middle of a relationship. Me and this girl are living together. It's perfect. She smells so sweetly. She's my guiding light. I know what it is. It's good.

    I need this. And I can just see this relationship taking off. Higher and higher. It's beautiful.

    VERSE 2: This is a sort of "second stage of the relationship". Things are going great for us it seems. We get a long for the most part. She's got some sick kicks, and she gets naked in those kicks. Nice! BUT there are some issues cropping up. Arguments, anytime/all the time. She's not afraid to speak up about any little issue. And most of all so often our arguments lead to her crossing the line or knocking down emotional walls that shouldn't be crossed.

    Well I know we're going higher and higher. But not in the same way as before. Now I'm feeling anxious about the relationship. The kind of floating feeling you get just before falling in a dream. It's scary.

    BRIDGE:

    Simple. This is the breakup. She's bitching out, I'm feeling down. She's asking questions, becoming untrusting, and in turn I feel even more anxious. I cant do this anymore. I'm out.

    VERSE 3:

    I'm regretting it. I should have stuck it out. We had a great connection so we're trying the whole "friends thing". We talk like we're best friends. Share everything. I'm realizing I love to kiss this girl. I never want to miss this girl, but now she won't even hold my hand.

    We still talk, laugh, but she's moving on, she's got her girlfriends, some of them are pretty hott too. But I can't go there. I won't go there.

    I need what we had. But, well, I know I can't have it with her. And now I feel us growing higher, or further and further apart.

    I got a girl, she's not "mine", but still a girl I'm stuck on. Ya I got a girl I can't get over. But I've watched this all fall apart, I've let her move on, and now... She's got a [new] guy.

    The beauty of any art form is the different perceptions that different people can bring to the table. This is what I believe the song meant, it's what it means to me. But it struck me as familiar on so many levels I cant help but think it's right.

    I love this song as well.

    But I don't think that he is singing about his girlfriend. Maybe a girl who is like his best friend or is. Nice twist, huh.

    I had a girl like that once.

    "I got a girl i love to kiss" Not obviously. I suppose it could be about a friend, but I think it is his girlfriend. It's a cheeky song, so it could be that she is cheating, or that his is refereing to himself.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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,

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
