We've been walking through the same situation
We've been walking down the lonely road
Trying to find the words so I can tell ya
All my feelings that just won't let go

And I don't know how
And I don't know why
But I can't stop now
Till I make you mine

Can you imagine you and me
Falling in love so tenderly
Can you imagine girl that we are one
(That we are one)
'Cause every moment that goes by
I find another reason why
That you and I should be lost in love
(should be lost)
Can you imagine girl

Every night girl as I lay here dreamin'
I imagine that your here with me
I have to wonder do you share this feelin'
Have you ever thought how it would be
If you have a doubt
(If you have a doubt)
Then I'll make it right
(Then I'll make it right)
'Cause I can't stop now
Till I make you mine


Oh no
I've been waiting for this perfect moment
I've been waiting now so long
So very long
'Cause I gotta make you see (oh yeah)
That I need you here with me (with me)
In my arms is where you belong

    He likes a girl and dreams a lot about her but he is not sure if she is into him. But he believes they should be together because he can show her love.

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.

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”

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,

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.
