You got these poems coming, flowing out
The feeling’s strong
Don’t know what’s happening, baby
But I know you’ll sing along
Slow dancing on the bed we shared
To fucking hip hop songs
And I know we’re spinning out
Let’s end it now, this shit is wrong
But coming back to it
She has to, it’s not up to us
Logic ain’t no reason
Stop me leaving like that’s not too rough
She’s got a plan
She wants to stand up here and hold me tight
But how’s that work
When you’re with others every other night?
Every other night I try
But I can’t convince my eyes
To see what I wanna see
You’re trapped inside your own disguise
I’ll be better when you break for me
Nights out, I get it, I get it
You don’t even like your friends
Just stop that bitching in my ear
About how hard it is
I’m here, just tryna find the time to call you back
No regrets
I just wanna tell you not to be upset
Bet you never thought this would be the ending you got
Always talking shit behind their backs
It says a lot
Never knew the right time to take your shot
If you think this song’s about you, baby
I promise it’s not
Every other night I try
But I can’t convince my eyes
To see what I wanna see
You’re trapped inside your own disguise
I’ll be better when you break for me
Time will pass and heal these scars
The pain from being torn apart
Don’t you try to say goodbye
I’ll be better when you break for me
What’s up?
The hell is that noise?
Oh, it’s cats fighting
Ooh, they fighting?
Square up

    My Interpretation

    This song may be about Heart's frustrations with their record label or their management. With the lyrics "Give me the truth who is running my show", "I got no more respect for the big man / Pulling me down to what he understands / He can't get his mind around no bigger plans / No one is going to tie me to this machine / Giving me formula force fed dreams / Getting more hold on me than it seems" expressing angst about being controlled by a higher power and being forced to do "cheesecake" just to sell a record.

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"

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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

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.
