I sit here patiently, I'm waiting for another pose
Looking straight at the camera, but she doesn't know what it's for
But she smiles anyway
She starts to lose her trust and her wandering eyes look straight ahead
She's staring back into mine but she hasn't noticed yet
She looks in the corner, she stops
She sees a man in back slowly approaching, but she's not scared
It's one more, she's lost so many now
She's losing track, she's lost track again this time is for good
The future is in this line and I'm sorry if you've forgotten
I guess it's gonna be another night all alone
Practice your line again and again
"Is there anything I can do for you now?"
The director is angry again, he sits in his chair
I look at him, he's staring back at me
He sees the point but he's not pleased
Kid, you're not here to love, you're here to act
Don't be concerned, you're just here
Talk and be ready, you better memorize that line
Or ask her to leave with you now
'Cause the future is in this line and I'm sorry if you've forgotten
I guess it's gonna be another night all alone
Practice your line again and again
"Is there anything I can do for you now?"
And I know it's been hard, you've listened with your sympathy
All the complaints of what I didn't have are gone
And the summer hasn't passed
We'll stay up late on weeknights and we will rest again at school
And we will be fine
Yeah, we will be fine

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"

Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
