I want to feel that white hot fire
Burnin' in my chest
I need long cool wet kisses
Who'd want to settle for less
I don't know where it's gonna come from
But there's gotta be more than this
I don't know what path I'll find it on
The only thing I'm sure of is

I'm gonna keep followin' a feelin'
I want to take that crazy fall
I'm going down each road that calls me
Join the dance, take the chance, risk it all
I've had what I've had
Been there, done that, now I want more
I'm gonna keep followin' a feelin'
Til I find what I'm looking for

Yeah
Sometimes you gotta lose yourself
Before you find the truth
Sometimes you gotta let go of your dreams
Before they come back to you
There's a healin' in forgiveness
Real power in a touch
Sometimes you gotta hit rock bottom
Before you know which way is up

I'm gonna keep followin' a feelin'
I want to take that crazy fall
I'm going down each road that calls me
Join the dance, take the chance, risk it all
I've had what I've had
Been there done that now I want more
I'm gonna keep followin' a feelin'
Til I find what I'm looking for

Yesterday's behind me
And when tomorrow finds me

I'm gonna be followin' a feelin'
I'm gonna take that crazy fall
I'm going down each road that calls me
Join the dance take the chance risk it all
I've had what I've had
Been there done that now I want more
I'm gonna keep followin' a feelin'
Til I find what I'm looking for

I'm gonna take that crazy fall
I'm going down each road that calls me
Join the dance take the chance risk it all
I've had what I've had
Been there done that now I want more
I'm gonna keep followin a feelin
Till I find what I'm looking for

Followin' a feelin'
Gonna take that crazy fall
Yeah
Followin' a feelin'
Terrified
What I'm looking for
Followin' a feelin'

    I know she said she wrote this song about leaving her record company and everything . . . but I think it works on so many other levels as well. It can relate to friendships, relationships, jobs, just everyday life. I really like the sound of this--she is going to keep going no matter how scared she is, because she wants to experience something real.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
