Molly M-M-M-Molly
Such a curious name
I say it again and again
And it still sounds just the same

Molly M-M-M-Molly
Turns my lovelight on
Every night we been talking on the phone
'Til just about dawn
On a drive down I-95
With Molly's snow-white hand in mine,
Chemical factories and halogen lights
And shivers down my spine

Can I be thinking thoughts of love?
Why does this always take me by surprise?
I must confess her sweet caress
Hit me like Cupid's arrow right between the eyes

Molly M-M-M-Molly, make it better now,
Molly M-M-M-Molly, make it alright

Molly, oh Molly do you want to be mine,
Like a flower opening in the sunshine?
Molly, oh Molly is it gonna be kind,
Like a corkscrew opening a bottle of wine?

Every day of the calendar we'll be together
Two cats in the cradle, two birds of a feather,
Staring for hours between your green eyes
No mystery, no puzzle, no lies
So many times I've been hurt, so many
Times I've cried,
So many times I thought my heart had died.

Why didn't she love me?
Why don't she care?
And when I look back
It's just emptiness there.
Some things so fine never last, it seems,
Not lace-filled fantasies, or lingerie dreams.
And everything I know,
Everything that's true
Comes back in a circle
Pointing straight to you,


Sweet illusions of the heart
Build palaces out of empty air
And when the palaces fall apart
We cry for what was never there
Molly do you feel my fireworks burning?
Do you feel that nasty old feeling returning?
Love can be crazy, love can be cruel
But I'd rather die a sinner, than a holy fool.

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"

No Surprises
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.

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.

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.
