tired of the rain my love
i'm tired of the waiting
if you watch the sky
with your eyes
you'll see the line i walk
i'm not afraid
that's what i say
here and now
can you be brave enough
to risk it all
no matter what?

who'll water your garden when
you descend
flowers can never grow
in the snow

we all want a crowd
by our side
yelling loud
telling us
we should be proud
of what we done
but it takes guts
to give it up
one on one
and if you run
when you are young
when you are old
you'll remember when
you had the chance
to have it all

who'll water your garden when
you descend
flowers can never grow
in the snow

who'll water your garden when
you descend
flowers can never grow
in the snow

who'll water your garden when
you descend
flowers can never grow
in the snow

satsang gattve nissan gattvam nissan
gattve nirmo hattvam nirmo hattve niscala
tattvam niscala tattve jivan mukti

    Song Meaning

    I am not sure if this is truly what it means, but to me it reads . . .

    . . . as if, the song is about a person who wants to be proud, to achieve fame, to be patted on the back and encouraged. The singer is telling them that they believe in them, they think the person has talent (or the correct viewpoint, opinion/right to have a voice), but not to seek encouragement or assurance from others; to only seek what they want to please themselves. The lyrics suggest the person has been broken down many times after not receiving this, and the singer is trying to pick them back up, but not in the way they sought or expected.

    Beautiful song; it deserves more attention <3

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"

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Magical
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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head &gt; 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.

Amazing
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.
