The spring is in the streets again and too many seasons gone by
We move to cruise and stare at ourselves
Hoping to find
Someone half-blind
Somebody who
Will make us knew
To hold in the night
Guard us from fright
Change all thats gone for the new

While in our very city there lives a Unicorn of old
The Queen that holds the Unicorn
Will be reborn
His mighty horn
Falls on that day
Storms pass away
Night turns to day
The whole world is gay
Angels descend from the sky

The trucks are cold and barren again and the numbers have all turned to jade
I search for a way to tear out my eyes
So I won't see
The dying tree
Fall to its knees
and as it must
with fragments of lust
Return to dust
Then we are gone in the night

While in our very city there lives a real live Unicorn
the Queen who captures the Unicorn
is virgin again
just touching its hand
wisdom is hers
focus from blurs
possessing the key
brings life to the tree
and makes it grow taller again

the Sanctuary's crowded again
the poisons are all passed around
Each star walks in, we turned to the door
Our eyes leave our head
the zombies are dead
just walking around
held to the ground
our feet our bound
obeying each sound
waiting to meet god knows who

While in our very city there lives a Unicorn of Old
The Queen who holds the Unicorn
Will be reborn
His mighty horn
Falls on that day
Storms pass away
Night turns to day
The whole world is gay
Angels descend from the sky

    I believe that the first verse is about love, about lost love and the shearch for a new by 'someone half-blind' Peter seems to refer to how love can blind us from seeing flaws in one another.. and by 'change all thats gone for the new' he means that we're leaving our past behind and moving forward with the search for another love. .

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.

Me and Johnny
Matt Paxton
Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."
