Make up on your shoulder
Silence in the air
Tonight those telltale signs are everywhere
As you lay beside her talking in your dreams
The game is up and laughter turns to tears

Every time you phone her with a dumb excuse
She starts to think that she's outgrown her use
You'll be home by midnight working late it seems
The penny drops and laughter turns to tears

Do you think she's crazy?
Don't you think she knows?
Do you think she's taken in?
Don't you think it shows?

When laughter turns to tears
Laughter turns to tears

You can send her roses
Say she's looking great
You can talk of love but it may be too late
You may think she's joking as her laughter teems
But with tears and laughter turns to screams

Do you think she's crazy?
Don't you think she knows?
Do you think she's taken in?
Don't you think it shows?

Now it won't be easy
Finding words to say
How you really feel inside
You take the game away

When laughter turns to tears
Laughter turns to tears

One day it's gonna shake you up
Take you by surprise
Someday it's gonna wake you up
Tears in your eyes

When laughter turns to tears
Laughter turns to tears
When laughter turns to tears
Laughter turns to tears

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

Blue
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.

Punchline
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.
