Ese día un día llegara
No sera pronto ni tarde
Cuando no queda cerilla ya
Es el dedo lo que arde

Lo que sube habrá de descender
Y aunque mientras la escalada
No es cuestión de mirarse a los pies
No se yo si esta cordada
Ha pensado en la bajada

Que si ese día la tortilla da la vuelta
Veréis que pocos nos quedamos en cubierta
El uno, el dos, el tres
Y para de contar
Que al escondite ingles
Se han puesto los demás
El uno, el dos, el tres
Y para de cantar
Porque a ninguno le interesa escuchar

Aunque en la foto aparentemos mas
Somos solo tres polillas
Que de tanto dar contra el cristal
Se han colado en la bombilla
Hasta que la luz de este quinque
Ya no sea lo que era
Y se encienda solo para que
Se la vea desde fuera
Como la de la nevera

Si de ese cuajo la tortilla da la vuelta
Veréis que pocos nos quedamos en cubierta
El uno, el dos, el tres
Y para de contar
Que al escondite ingles
Se han puesto los demás
El uno, el dos, el tres
Y para de cantar
Porque a ninguno le interesa escuchar
Y quizá volvamos al local
A cantar para nosotros
Lo de "hoy no me puedo levantar"
Y dejar que esa chorrada
Nos empane la mirada
Lagrimas de agua pasada
Despintando la fachada

    Siempre he pensado en esta canción como lo harto que estaban los miembros de Mecano para esta etapa, se siente el cansancio y un desgano terrible por su parte, lo cual se puede confirmar en la parte: Y quizá volvamos al local A cantar para nosotros Lo de "hoy no me puedo levantar" Y dejar que esa chorrada Nos empane la mirada Cansados de siempre hacer lo mismo y sin recibir el reconocimiento que se merecían.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.
