Grew up together in the neighborhood
She never noticed that he looked so good
He told her all I do is dream of you oh yeah
No, she had never seen
In her wildest dreams
Blue eyes that gleam just like James Dean

Big plans their make in a small hometown
No chance to leave would really bring him down
A crazy rebel with a cause, he was for sure oh yeah
No, she had never seen
In her wildest dreams
Blue eyes that gleam just like James Dean

He writes her letters from around the world
Says he loves her and she's still his girl
Maybe he'll come back, don't know when
Oh she'll never see her baby again

He's got the whole world in his hands
And she was Alice in his wonderland
Oh they had dreams, but now he has it all yeah
No, she had never seen
In her wildest dreams
Blue eyes that gleam just like James Dean

She was the diamond of his eyes
And she would always be right by his side
But good guys only win in the movies yeah
No, she had never seen
In her wildest dreams
Blue eyes that gleam just like James Dean

He writes her letters from around the world
Says he loves her and she's still his girl
Maybe he'll come back, he don't know when
Oh she'll never see her baby again

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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"
