sirens wake me up
wake me up
with a cry
things we do
for attention...
just a little
reminder dear
i am still alive

so confused
i almost threw
it all away
for you
you took me higher
and you dropped
me lower
than i've ever been
before

if i have a heart attack
at 23
i'm loving you too much
if i have a heart attack
at 23
wave bye-bye
you'll miss me
you'll miss me baby
if i have a heart attack
at 23

all my friends
we waste so
much love
on our men
why can't i
be forgiving
while he been out
a-messin'
with his argentine baby

if i have a heart attack
at 23
i'm loving you too much
if i have a heart attack
at 23
wave bye-bye
you'll miss me
you'll miss me baby
if i have a heart attack
at 23

i must be dreaming
we were together
in a
land of scarlet ribbon
that tied you to me darlin'

roll roll roll roll on
but you know i'm never
satisfied
with all the good things
in my life
i thought i needed you
to be strong
i'll still miss you
when i'm gone

if i have a heart attack
at 23
i'm loving you too much
if i have a heart attack
at 23
wave bye-bye
you'll miss me
you'll miss me baby
if i have a heart attack
at 23

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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Magical
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.

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.
