Bon Iver – Perth
Editors choice
Meaning added by joy_jech
This song is very nautical. I think that the imagery of "tearing up across your face" is analogous for a dusty photograph but that is only a metaphor for a person who is stuck in a moment in time, not moving. "Boring" (not pouring). I'm guessing "Perth" is the name of a boat that has not moved for sometime perhaps due to the stagnancy of the boats caretaker and being emotionally stuck. "Move dust through the light to find your name" brings up the image of a person dusting off the stagnant ship to reveal the name written there. "Not a place" - not "Perth" the place. Boats are always personified so if she was sitting there a long time, she was "not yet awake". But she is "still alive". "Gotta know been led aloft" aloft is a nautical term to mean, in the rigging , on the masts. "So I'm riddling all your stories" - all the stagnancy & repetitive nature of the heart & mind. All the excuses to let the boat and the life stay in a sleeping state. "I know what it is, it's boring, wire it up"! It's like saying let go of all that in your head (the stories we keep telling ourselves) that is keeping you stuck & live! Restore the ship of your heart. Wire up the mast! "Your breaking your ground" - it's a nautical term to mean pulling up anchor & therefore, setting sail. Read more →

Machines replace our minds for systematic profit plans
This line pretty much means that computers are taking the jobs of workers for plans of great power and profit. It means the jobs of people are going away because of the creation of computers in the modern day and age.
The song is meaning that her life was so hard on her and she didn't pay attention and the road cause she was thinking about her life of how hard it has been and when the car was sliding on the ice she didn't want her life to end this way and her baby's lie to not end this way so she baud her head and prayed to stop the car and it stop and she was happy that her baby and her was save and she said or now on tonight Jesus take the wheel take the wheel take it from my hand cause I can't do this all my own I am letting go so give us one more chance and save us from this road I am on and from that day she had faith to god.

Ed Sheeran – Grade 8

Explanation added by rahhathaway
You're strumming on my heart strings like you were a grade 8 but I never felt this way
Ed is talking about a girl who he is obviously has feelings for. "You're strumming on my heart strings" means that she was flirting with him, or messing with his heart's feelings for her. "Like you were a Grade 8" doesn't mean like she was in eighth grade, which is commonly thought. When ed says "Like you were a Grade 8" he is explaining that she is a very talented musician. In the UK (where Ed is from), music exam grades are given using a scale of 1-8, 8 being the absolute best. Ed is saying that she "was a grade 8", therefore, she was a terrific musician. Read more →
