It's a sign of the times girl
Sad songs on the radio
It's a sign of the times girl
As the leaves begin to go
But all these signs now
Showing on my face
Proving me wrong taking its place

And I pray to god
That there's more that we can do yeah
And I pray to God
That there's more we can show
More than we can do yeah.

Isn't it a wonder as a new baby cries
And isn't it a wonder with the sweetness in my eyes
Isn't it a wonder, on the crossroads of my life
Isn't it a wonder, isn't it a wonder to me?

Oh oh, yeah oh

It's the way of the world when
Wrong takes hold of right
It's the way of the world
In which we've all lost sight
But isn't this world too simple to be true
Holding on to memories of you.

And I pray to god
That there's more that we can do, yeah
And I pray to God
That there's more we can show
More than we can do, yeah.

Isn't it a wonder, as a newborn baby cries
And isn't it a wonder with the sweetness in my eyes
Isn't it a wonder, at the crossroads of my life
Isn't it a wonder, isn't it a wonder

That I can see a change in me
But I won't go back 'cause that's behind me
And after all strong words are spoken
My heart will never be, never be, never be

Isn't it a wonder, as a new born baby cries
And isn't it a wonder with the sweetness in my eyes
Isn't it a wonder, at the crossroads of my life
Isn't it a wonder, isn't it a wonder

That I can see a change in me
But I won't go back, 'cause that's behind me
And after all strong words are spoken
My heart will never be, never be, never be.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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"
