Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside, each other's wounds
We all had caught, the same disease
We all sang, the songs of peace

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

So raise the candles high
'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the night

Oh, raise them higher again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside, each other's wounds
We all had caught, the same disease
We all sang, the songs of peace

Some came to sing
Some came to pray
Some came to keep
The dark away

Some came to sing
Some came to pray
Some came to keep
The dark away

So raise the candles high
'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the night

Oh raise them high again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown ...

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.
