This mornin is Monday
Where are you now?
Teasin' my memory
Tellin' me how
To lay low when I don't want to
Your love is elusive
This I know now
It's makin' me crazy
Leavin' me out in the open
When I don't want to

Baby, I can't go through this again
I don't need to go down more than I've already been
Just like a wildfire, you're runnin' all over town
As much as you've burned me baby, I should be ashes by now

The moments of pleasure
Never do last
They're gone like a suitcase
Full of your past
Long gone
And in a hurry

Baby, I can't go through this again
I don't need to go down more than I've already been
Just like a wildfire, you're runnin' all over town
As much as you've burned me baby, I should be ashes by now

You're runnin' all over town
As much as you burned me baby, I should be ashes by now

Just like a wildfire, you're runnin' all over town
As much as you've burned me baby, I should be ashes by now
As much as you've burned me baby, I should be ashes by now

(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ashes by now)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ashes by now)
As much as you've burned me baby, I should be ashes by now

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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.

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.
