Ruby Tuesday Lyrics
Yesterday don’t matter if it’s gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows
She comes and goes
Goodbye, ruby tuesday

When you change with every...

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...
Keith Richards wrote it.
I think it was about Jagger and the way he felt about life at the time and he just projected that into a song about a girl. That would be consistent with the interviews and public statements he used to make at that time in his life.
Also listen to "Sittin' on a Fence".

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.

This song is about a girl, and she had a dream where she slept with Jagger. Then she ends up meeting him, and they sleep together, and she realizes that he's not all she wants in life." don't catch your dreams before they drift away" and Jagger ended up liking this girl, but she ended up leaving because she wanted more in life. So Jagger is singing this song because she's gone, and he'll never see her again because he barely knew her. " she would never say were she came from" and yet he felt as if there could have been more than just sex between them
