So now you want to change sides, you say the lesson's been learned,
I can tell by your voice, baby just got burned.
I can see in your eyes, I can read it so well,
You're a master in disguise but it ain't hard to tell.

Anyone that's been through it before knows that look,
I can read your mind like a story book,
And there's no happy ending to this life.

Cause I can see the heartbreak in your eyes,
I can feel the pain that you cry, deep inside of those heartbreak eyes.
I hear you cry through the night, callin' over and over again.

The voices came and took advantage, now you don't wanna play,
When the word got around he gave your secrets away.
Now it's too late to cry you know the damage is done,
Dry your tears say goodbye you know he wasn't the one.

All your life you been livin' out of love,
Now you've folded your cards when push came to shove.
You're just another number, just a victim of love's lies.

I can see the heartbreak in your eyes,
I can feel the pain that you cry, deep inside of those heartbreak eyes.
You hear me cay through the night, callin' over and over again.

Over and over again, you hear me cry through the night,
Callin' over and over...

I can see the heartbreak in your eyes,
I can feel the pain that you cry, deep inside of your heartbreak eyes.
You hear them cry through the night, callin' over and over, those heartbreak eyes.
I can feel the pain that you hide deep inside, deep inside of those heartbreak eyes.
You hear the cries through the night, callin' over and over those heartbreak eyes.
I can feel the hurt inside, your heartbreak eyes,
I can hear the cries at night, over and over again.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

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.
