Gotta get airborne before it's too late
This entire song is about the pilots of the Spitfires used in WW2. This specific sentence is because these planes were finished just in time to withstand the attack of the German Stuka's - bombers that were very fast AND they could dive in a very sharp angle to the earth to drop their bombs very precisely, the missing marges had an average of one meter (= about 3 feet) Read more →

Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me, for centuries
Just one mist

Is all it will take
We'll go down in history
Remember me for centuries
Hey, hey, hey
Remember me for centuries

There are many legends that are made, but only some stay through history forever. They say "We'll go down in history, remember me for centuries" meaning, that they wont be forgotten and people centuries from no
w will still look back at themselves and their music. "Some legends are told. Some turn to dust or to gold" by that, the band means that people will turn into "dust" and never be remembered, or turn to "gold" and never leave the memory of thousands, or even millions of people in the future.

Cher Lloyd – Human

You know I'm just human, human, human after all
It's pretty self- explanatory, she has been pretending to be perfect but in the end she really is only a human and nothing more and she can't always be perfect for the person she is singing to.

Cher Lloyd has a
few songs based around this theme and has it tattooed on her arm. Read more →

Meaning
Don't by Ed Sheeran was confirmed to be written about Ellie Goulding. Ed and Taylor are very good friends and neither of them wrote these songs about the other. This song specifically isn't written about any one person. Although she does reference an ex ("my ex man", "heartbreaker", "faker") the song is a lot bigger than that. It's mostly a refutation of all the hate she gets in the tabloids. She specifically sites many common criticisms (namely that she's unintelligent, she gets around, and she can't dance) and goes on to brush them off. The whole premise of the music video is her making fun of her poor dancing. This song is just a tasteful way of brushing off the hate she is constantly hounded with and making fun of herself. This song is a lot bigger than just a man. It's refreshing to see a celebrity poking fun at themselves and not letting the hate get to them. Good for her! Read more →
Marcia Hines – Shining

Meaning added by claude100
I'm 72 next month. In 1986 my wife went away. And that song was my answer. I was holding on it. We came back together after some time. In 2013 again we've separated. Today I'm crying while listening that song. Here at Bundaberg -Queensland, on Friday the 19 of Sept: Marcia Hines should have made an apparition at the Hinkler Mall (Bundaberg 4670). She didn't came. Today on Saturday I am still chocked. Had 2 cardiac problems, under medication. My heart hurt. The magic of music, the words remind me of 1986 and of now. I'm hurting = That song is an avalanche of emotion falling on me. Bye Claude. Read more →
Iggy Azalea – Fancy

Who that, who that, I-G-G-Y
That do that, do that, I-G-G-Y
Who that, who that, I-G-G-Y
How about the simple, she is IGGY Azalea, and is just giving a reminder of her name in her song. It might be repeated for emphasis. In the official MV, she is shown in multiple places, as she is saying those last lines, and it might be an emphasis of her earlier idea that as she becomes more famous, she will travel a lot.

Not to overstep my own authority, but it seems she's considering a tour.

Tove Lo – Habits

Explanation added by Mixce
"
Staying in my play pretend
Where the fun, it got no end
Ooh
Can't go home alone again
Need someone to numb the pain
The “play pretend” is the world she inhabits while high. By characterizing her high(s) in a child-like manner (“play[ing] pretend”, the “playgrounds” mentioned in verse 2, and endless “fun” are stereotypical juvenile desires), the narrator subliminally conveys a realization of the immaturity of her actions.
When she says Can't go home again shes saying she can't go home, although she is having fun, she still misses the guy she is talking about in the song and someone needs to numb her pain.

Here we are, don't turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town
No matter how hard it gets, no matter how many losses you suffer, the bad plays that occur, the mistakes that are made, you shouldn't turn away.

It is through those failures that you become better.
