Little darlin', don't you cry,
You know I'll try to be there with you by and by
When everything is going wrong now don't you cry.
I'm wishin'.

Little darlin', far away,
I see the world go rollin' by my window pane,
But I can only wish that I was there again.
I'm wishin'.

I wish that everything was cold,
I wish you were here to hold, I'm wishin'.

Little darlin', the night is long,
I thought I'd be back now I must have got it wrong
You and California call me in this song.
I'm wishin'.

I wish that everything was cold,
I wish you were here to hold,I'm wishin'.

Little darlin' I see you,you're cryin' in the sun
I gotta be with you,
I'm gonna be with there soon I'll make it all come true.
I'm wishin'.

I wish that everything was cold,
I wish you were here to hold,I'm wishin'.

    It is a song that I grew up with. Born in 1978, this song reminds me of my sister and when she had cancer, I used to cry when I heard it. Now, today, her recovering, this song makes me think of the loneliness I have because of my recent break up. We loved the cold and she would lay her cold body parts on me, mostly her feet, then I would tickle her. So, as you can tell, I'm WISHING

    My now husband was stationed in S. Korea in the army, and he told me he would come back to California asap. We kept making plans, but they sometimes didn't come through. This song came on when I was feeling depressed, and it just connected so much... But that's what it means to me: He wants to be with her, but he can't yet. He won't give up until they're together again.

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"

Magical
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.

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.
