i finally feel at ease
i'm on an eastern breeze
it blows me into shore

come back to kiss my dear
come back to face my fears
it can't be worse than war

unless you say you gave your heart away (gave your heart away)
unless you say i shouldn't have returned (shouldn't have returned)
and in that case... i'll go

every night i see a shooting star
and wonder if it's landing where you are
if you can see it then you can't be far
and if that's the way you do it
that's the way you find your love

now the air is cold and thin
i'm on my second wind
it blows me to your door

lean into the bell and press
you're in a brand new dress
i've never seen before

and then you say you gave your heart away (gave you heart away)
and then you say i shouldn't have returned (shouldn't have returned)
so i turn my face... and go

every time i take a look around
i find myself looking out
on a place that looks a lot more round
i find myself feeling down

every night i see a shooting star
and wonder if it's landing where you are
if you can see it then you can't be far
and if that's the way you do it
then that's the way you find your love

    Im suprised no one knows what this song is about... i think they still have the meaning to this song on their websight. Either way, its about a russian soldier who goes to war, and the only thing keeping him alive is returning to his love back at home. When he comes back though, his love had moved on and she tells him that he "shouldn't have returned" so he turns his head and walks away... its a really sad song with a strangely up-beat tune, i love it

    hmmm never heard the russian theme pertaining to this (though god knows ozma loves their russian themes ehehe) but i always thought rrp3 was before they got into that.. hmm something to think about... anywho this is a wonderful song.. but really really depressing in a way (though as mafekire said strangely up-beat)

    its the opposite to battlescars. i find it odd that this, the more depressing of the two, is the more upbeat one also. in battlescars, the guy comes home from the war, and his love is still there, she still kisses him everyday.

This is one of my favorite songs. https://fnfgo.io

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”

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

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.
