The human soul is always free

Some people they keep secrets
They say that we are not telling
And I know in their silence
It slips right through their fingers
Scared eyes are blinking
Heads held high ask reasons
Why do we
Try for such big ideas

You take the hand and you break it boy
They can't really see
That you're trying to be right
You take her by the arm
You say what my dear
That wasn't very nice

You better change your mind

Why are you telling me this
This is what you need
You've been there before I know
I know
That I'm not the only soul for these hours

It's not gonna change my mind
I'm the liar
I want to get out I've gotta change
I crush up papers

I've got to get out
You're never gonna change my world
You're all liars

I want to get out
You're never gonna change my words
You're all liars

We want to get out
You're never gonna chain my words
You're all liars

We want to get out
You're never gonna change my ways
You're all liars

I've got to get out
You're never gonna change my words
You're all liars

I've got to get out
You're never gonna change my world
You're all liars

I've got to get out
You're never gonna change my words
You're all liars

I've got to get out
You're never gonna change my world
You're all liarsThese Remains

    I guess I'm the first one to have a go at this.....a little over 30 years ago I was able to transition from private school to public school after it was discovered that my algebra teacher had been molesting his two daughters. I was so happy to leave that horrible place and this song came out around that time. Once I heard the lyrics and ominous rhythm I immediately related to it via my experience with all the teachers and parents that covered up for this sick P.O.S. after it all came to surface. The lyrics repeated "Your'e all liars" and that was comforting.

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"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.
