I toss and turn you presence disturbs me
Seethe and burn you ignite me
You move away but not too far
You move away but not too far
I need to know just where you are
'Cuz I keep track of my friends
And I keep track of my enemies
Who is who, who is who it changes daily

And you loved her truly yet you loved her cruelly
You loved her truly but you loved her cruelly
You love her

I see you icy blue
cold and indifferent
No emotion no commitment
I see she and she sees a red red sea
Bleeding for life now she's bleeding to death
Feeling the power and the pain
So much loss she tries harder to gain

And you loved her truly yet you loved her cruelly
You loved her truly but you loved her cruelly
You love her

Are you gonna let him, let him love you to death?
Are you gonna let him, let him love you to death?
Are you gonna let him?

'Cuz if he can't break your heart well maybe he'll bust a couple of ribs

I toss and turn your presence disturbs me
Seethe and burn you ignite me
You move away but not too far
You move away but not too far
I need to know just where you are
'Cuz I keep track of my friends
And I keep track of my enemies
Who is who, who is who it changes daily

I see you icy blue
Cold and indifferent
No emotion no commitment

Are you gonna let him?
Let him love you to death?
Are you gonna let him?
Let him love you to death?
Are you gonna let him, let him love you to death?
Are you gonna let him?

And he loved you truly yet he loved you cruelly
He loved you truly but he loved you cruelly

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"

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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,

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
