I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday, I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love
Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Oh, Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday, I'm in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate

I don't care if Monday's black
Tuesday, Wednesday, heart attack
Thursday, never looking back
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday you can hold your head
Tuesday, Wednesday, stay in bed
Or Thursday watch the walls instead
It's Friday, I'm in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate

Dressed up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throw out your frown
And just smile at the sound
Sleek as a shriek, spinning 'round and 'round
Always take a big bite
It's such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It's Friday, I'm in love

I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday, I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love
Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday, break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday, I'm in love

(Oh)
Do-do, do-do, do-do, do
Do-do, do-do, do-do, do
(Oh, oh, whoa, whoa)

    It's about being in love at this exact moment, and nothing else matters. Who cares if the rest of my week, or month, or life, is awful because I'm happy and in love right now.

    Oral sex? Come on... it's the Cure. They're much more romantic than that, I think.

    The last stanza sounds like it's describing a night at an amusement park or something. "Dressed up to the eyes," shows that she's... well... dressed up. That probably means that they're out. "To see your shoes and your spirits rise." Shoes rising. That could mean that she's jumping. Or it could be an amusement park ride. "And just smiling at the sound." Sound, eh? Amusement parks do tend to be noisy. "And as sleek as a shriek." Shriek. Getting the point? "Spinning round and round." This one's pretty obvious. "Always take a big bite." Cotton candy. Yum.

    I like to interpret this in the same way that rockorager did, where it's a relationship where most of the time, it doesn't appear to be all that great on the surface, but every now and then, there's a happy time, represented by "Friday" in this song, when he can really appreciate how much he loves her.

    What I think about when I hear this song is something like this:

    You have a crush on a girl (or a boy) and you can't wait to see them again. But you are always working on weekdays and you don't have the nerves to call them after work. So you are just waiting for Friday so you can get drunk and brave enough to go talk to her, and hopefully get closer than just talking.

    It's probably not what Robert Smith had in mind but it's how I connect it.

    I disagree intoodeep. I think what is going on is he is being hurt by a girl quite a bit "throughout the week"...not so much literally but more in a sense that even though it is the majority of the time, when it comes down to it...he loves her. He is saying that whatever they went throught he puts behind him cause "it's Friday and I'm in love!"

    come on guys...robert smith is a lyrical genius, there is definately a much deeper meaning to this song that no one will ever understand. thats the beauty about the cure, there is so much thought into every song...i feel like it is about a girl (Friday) and the other days of the week are just random other names of girls all of whom don't mean anything to him because he is so deeply lost in this one girl...

    In an interview, Robert Smith himself said that this song was an out and out love song... but I think the lyrics should explain this themselves. Who got the idea that it was about a drug addiction?

    This song came out when i was in II standard so like alot of the songs of the last 80's & early 90's, i have childhood attachments to it. This is such a super fun song, i dont care if it's about sex or drugs, i love it!! It's one of the most fun videos to watch! Fully grown men running around, acting all silly as if they're having the best food fight of their lives!! Priceless!! I have to admit though, this is the only Cure song i know.hehe.

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Blue
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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

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.
