What I tell is a different story,
What I have, I take, then give it all away,
So if you'd like to come this way,
Then help me climb the walls that stand before me.

I want to know,
If this is just a game,
Can anybody play,
Can everybody win,
Can you believe it,

I may be lost, I may be blind,
I may be cursing most of the time
But it?s half the fun,
And in this world we spin and shout
We want it all we want it now,
They said ?oh shut your mouth
You don't know what you talk about?.

I want to know,
If this is just a game,
Can anybody play,
Can everybody win.

Another show another scene,
The city sleeps below you sing a lullaby,
Another show another scene and,
I can't imagine the world without me,
I can't imagine the world without me,
I can't imagine the world without me, hey,
I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll, la la la la.

I'm on a roll la la la la,
I'm on a roll la la la la,
I'm on a roll la la la la,
Me me me me me me me me me,
Me me me me me me me me.

    However terrible life can be sometimes, it's still more fun than not being alive. Although the "me, me, me" refrain and the EGO balloon in the video may signal an ironic inversion of that.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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”

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.

Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
