Standing here next to this hole that I am digging for myself,
I wonder how I'm supposed to act. I swear that I've been here before.

I know history repeats itself, but this is getting out of hand.
I'm to the point where I don't think that I can take this anymore.

Pale moon dances;
Sideways glances;
My head's full of questions. No answer without her.
I guess I'll never know.

Standing here I ask myself; just what is best? What should I do?
I know that I should walk away but I just can't give up on you.

As hard as I may try to let it go or just try to forget,
You have this way of giving me hope to see things I hadn't yet.

Cold wind's blowing;
Rumors growing.
Look's like I'm the suspect of romance.
Still no chance, as if I ever would...

When everything is said and done;
When all my hope begins to fade;
It's the sour taste left in my mouth,
It tastes like raspberry lemonade.

Quietly watching the way your eyes glow in this candlelight,
I've never seen you look so beautiful as how you do tonight.

Held by you, I'm captivated; I am lost inside your eyes.
The overwhelming feel of loneliness comes, but it's no surprise.

Stars are shining;
No defining emotions I'm feeling.
The drive home: I'm alone. Nothing but empty dreams.

Techno Ted
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives."

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
