Lord Huron – The Night We Met Lyrics 1 year ago
When I first heard, and re-listened to, this song from “13 Reasons Why”, I was focused on the loss felt by the characters in the show, and internalizing my own grief over my fathers recent death.

I interpreted this song as missing someone after they are gone. Wanting to go back to the day you first met them in order to relive that moment, and all the moments after with them.

“And then I can tell myself
Not to ride along with you”
I must admit I have contemplated suicide so that I can see him again - these lyrics loosely ‘tell me’ not to.

“When the night was full of terrors
And your eyes were filled with tears
When you had not touched me yet”
This could reflect my birth, right before my dad first held me.

The rest is just not knowing what do to with him gone.

Reading the other comments and talking about the song with others, it’s clear that it’s originally about someone who never wanted to get together with a now ex.
