One step hesitation
One step into the night
Don't mind the weather
It's raining in my heart tonight

Much more to living
Two wrongs don't make a right
You're gonna regret it
When you're looking back
On your life

Don't go away
Make the most of this love I'm giving
Don't go away
Better take another look at my face
You can be what you wanna be, hm
But don't go away

Some dream of fortune
Others dream of fame
Seconds after leaving
Life'll never be the same

Fell for temptation
It didn't mean a thing
We'll last forever
If you turn around
Once again

Don't go away
Make the most of this love I'm giving
Don't go away
Better take another look at my face
You can be what you wanna be, hm
But don't go away

Do you wanna be more than a picture hanging on the wall
Something to remind me of how it all went wrong
Do you wanna be more than a number forgotten in a book
You're holding something special, so take another look

You're gonna regret it
When you're looking back
On your life

Don't go away
Make the most of this love I'm giving
Don't go away
Better take another look at my face
You can be what you wanna be, hm
But don't go away

Take a look
Take another look on your way
Take a look
Take another look on your way

Please don't go

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,

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
