A thousand years, they waited for
Someone who would be true,
And now the empty years have passed,
The sunlight shines anew.
Someone who knows no fear,
I feel him near.
The child was born to be a king, a king,
And the time has come.
He tamed the wild wind when he passed,
The birds and beasts he knew,
Until he came to rest, at last,
The tall gates he passed through.
Someone who knows no fear,
I feel him near.
The child was born to be a king, a king,
And the time has come.
And now the story's just begun.
A thousand years to stay.
We wake each morning with the sun
To live our dreams away.
Someone who knows no fear,
I feel him near.
The child was born to be a king, a king,
And the time has come.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Somewhere Only We Know
Keane
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Indigo
Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”
