Laugh at what you did today
It's all been done before
Lift your hands into the clouds
You're even in the score
The swimming pool's without a drain
You look at how the water stays
You think again you think the same
Your steps become a fall
She said on the phone
That there was nothing to do
Like a kid in the store
With her fingers glued
She said her passion was splashed with sin
It's a final shame, shame, shame
If I die now before I get old
Let the people remember that I was told
To stick with things that made them proud
It's a final shame shame shame

Last chance you're there
As you lose your motivation
And all you've got to do is let it go
It's your last phase and every little way
To find you
But all you've got to do is let it go

Take the time to feel the pain
It's all been done before
Put your head into the game
You're even in the score
Let your secrets out to try
The crash you feel when you deny
The lasting thought is all you hear
Your eagerness survives

She said on the phone
That there was nothing to do
Like a kid in the store
With her fingers glued
She said her passion was splashed with sin
It's a final shame, shame, shame
If I die now
Before I get old
Let the people remember that I was told
To stick with things that made them proud
It's a final shame, shame, shame

Last chance you're there
As you lose your motivation
And all you've got to do is let it go
It's your last phase and every little way
To find you
But all you've got to do is let it go
Last phase and every little way
To find you
And all you've got to do is let it show

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.
Album art
American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. 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.
