Will you remember the dress I wore?
Will you remember my face?
Will you remember the lipstick I wore?
This world is a wonderful place
Will you remember the black limousine?
Will you remember champagne?
Will you remember the things that we've seen?
I will return here again
Will you remember the flowers in my hand?
Will you remember my hair?
Will you remember the future we planned?
The world is not waiting out there
I won't remember the dress I wore
I won't remember champagne
I won't remember the things that we swore
I will just love you in vain
Will you remember?
Will you recall?

    For some reason this song always brings tears to my eyes. It's poignancy maybe.

    The song's about how Dolores wonders if her ex-lover remembers her.The song can also be about Dol's wedding day.Whichever you chose.

    its about a girl losing her virginity on prom night he wont remember her and she wont care to remember anything about the night. She will just always love him in vain because he took a part of her.

    My Opinion
    Considering the rest of the album deals with death, loss, remembering and the grieving process, I think it's safe to say this song was inspired by the fact that she was thinking about a departed loved one so much in her daily life that she's dreaming about the person. Perhaps she missed the person so much, she desperately wanted to see them again, and this carries over into her dreams. It has nothing to do with sex or previous romantic relationships. The album was dedicated to their manager who died. He also happened to be the guy that got them into the business professionally. Also, Dolores' grandfather died around this time, whom I understand she was very close to. I know her voice is sexy but there is nothing sexual about this album. It's an intimate, personal album, but not like that. It's a brilliant album and yet it's so sad when you really listen to the lyrics, listen to it from start to finish and know a little of the history that surrounds it's making.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
