So many tears I'm shaking out.
Squeezing them out, and bend it
The way things work together
If I write this letter, you can bend it
Please, hope. Can I give hope
The sky won't fall just look.

If I write this letter,
You can send it back to me.
If you can't dance If you can't live,
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.

Knocked me on the head
And sent me spinning.
It was a blast
I can't remember the last time.

Stand between two poles
And hold your arms up.
I'll kick me over your head
And stock down.
Carry him, carry him.
Carry him and pray.

If I mail this letter
You can send it back to me.
Just look, I love you.
I love you.
I love you.

It isn't fair
(No, it isn't fair)
Hope you can hold your head up.

I can pray if you meet my gaze.
I can laugh if you bring me home
And dry me off.

It isn't fair
(No, it isn't fair)
Hope you can hold your head up.

Count your cans
And hold them up
And count them all.

A piece of ground where I can lay my head.
Where I can lay a piece of my heart.
I don't remember, I don't remember,
If I saw God there or not.

Give me home, give me all,
Give me what I want
I want a place at the door.

I surrender, I surrender,
My place, my goods, my day.

No Surprises
Radiohead
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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

Amazing
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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
