While the sun is bright

It's about Keith Richard's first girlfriend Linda Keith. who was a model, and was addicted to drugs, and the song is about how she never knew what she wanted...

Its a love song about a man who suspects that his girlfriend is a prostitute who is hooked on drugs (no one knows, she comes and goes) she never tells him that she is a hooker who uses dope everyday and has slept with hundreds of jons. So he is deeply head over heels in love with her.
This song is about how unconditionally he loved a woman
(probably a groupie).
This woman (he probably didn't know her name>> Who could hang name on you?) was constantly moving and changing her mind but he would always love her.
It's also about not wasting time, and not giving up dreams.

This song's about regretting losing someone you loved but could never keep because they were constantly seeking some new thing to fill their lives, a new experience, place, feeling or love. It's basically about accepting that you were in love but it could never last.
