I'm doin' this for all my ladies
I know you you thinkin'
"Yo, it sounds like a lullaby," right?
But this is for you
Get into it

I got your legs spread all over the bed
Hands clenched in the sheets
Hair wild as hell I know
The only thin' on your mind is sexin' me
Girl, I can feel your temperature risin'
You should feel my nature too
Come on you it's gonna be a bumpy ride
Girl, lets do what we came to do

Girl, when we make love all night
When we make good love all night
When we make love all night
We really make love
Girl, when we make love all night
When we make good love all night
When we make love all night
We really make love (come to daddy, baby)

On the balcony grippin' the rails
Slowly I'm pullin' you near
Sayin', "Shh, babe, don't make to much noise
There's a lot of people that live around here"
Emotions runnin' high
My hands planted on your thighs
You feel me goin' up and down
And round and round and round

Girl, when we make love all night (your sexy body)
When we make good love all night
When we make love all night (all over you)
We really make love (you over me, my body)
Girl, when we make love all night (baby)
When we make good love all night (when I touch you)
When we make love all night
We really make love (we're makin' sweet, sweet love)

In your driveway in the back seat
Windows tinted its gettin' deep
Fog all over the glass
I don't know how long I can last
With you moanin' crazy
Girl, keep on callin' me
I'll take you to ecstasy
And when I'm done, you'll be fast asleep

Girl, when we make love all night (when we makin' good love, oh, oh)
When we make good love all night
When we make love all night (lovin', ooh, baby)
We really make love
Girl, when we make love all night (ooh yeah)
When we make good love all night (keep me mind all night)
When we make love all night (I can hear you baby)
We really make love (everybody)

If it's the house, at the mall, in the jeep, babe
In the tub in the pool or the beach, babe (don't matter to me)
Get your grove on (get your grove on)
Get your grove on (if you, if you gotta lady get you groove on)
If it's the house, at the mall, in the jeep, babe (touch her body)
In the tub in the pool or the beach, babe (get inside her mind)
Get your grove on (if you can)
Get your grove on (baby, do it to me)

Girl, when we make love all night
I mean we make good love all night (you got me goin')
When we make love all night (just thinkin' about your body)
We really make love (oh-oh, yeah)
Girl, when we make love all night (my family sees it)
When we make good love all night (always fought for you)
When we make love all night ('cause you're inside of my mind)
We really make love (and I love the way you feel)

Girl, I love it when we're on the floor
Girl, I love it when we're on the couch
Yes, I love it when we're in the kitchen
Girl, I love it when I'm down town
Yes, I love it when you go down
Girl, I love it when your all around
Yes, I love it
I love you, baby

When we makin' good love
When we makin' good love

    I think it means that The "guy" wants to make love not just have sex he wants it to mean something.

    He loves the girl and wants to be intimate with her, not just have sex with her.

    yeah... I'd have to agree w/ everyone else's opinions. This WAS me and my ex-boyfriends song back when this song came out. But now we're over. Still was a good relationship song to have.

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.
Album art
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.
Album art
No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.
Album art
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.
Album art
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.
