Deep, deep in our hearts
Strangers apart
Oh please come back to me
No more to leave
Never to grieve

I give my world to you
Send, send her away to her grieving
I will never set you free
No more, no more a life without meaning
You and I will fly away to
Love, in my mind
Love, in my soul
I just can't let go
Sadness fills my life
Of my fruitless plight
Only heaven knows

Tears, tears in the night
Sorrow take flight
Oh please come back to me
Each we believe
Never to grieve

I give my world to you
Send, send her away to her grieving
I will never set you free
No more, no more a life without meaning
You and I will fly away to
Love, in my mind
Love, in my soul
I just can't let go
Sadness fills my life
Of my fruitless plight
Only heaven knows

Sadness fills my life
Sadness fills my life, oh yeah
Sadness fills my life
Sadness fills my life, oh yeah

Send, oh send her away to her grieving
You and I will fly away to
Love, in my mind
Love, in my soul
I just can't let go
Sadness fills my life
Of my fruitless plight
Only heaven knows

Love, in my mind
Love, in my soul
I just can't let go
Sadness fills my life
Of my fruitless plight
Only heaven knows (heaven knows)

Love, in my mind
Love, in my soul
I just can't let go (heaven knows
Sadness fills my life
Of my fruitless plight
Only heaven knows (heaven knows)

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
