Precious burden
I capture deep inside
What would my life be
without pain in me

rely on what you need,
devour what you feed
'cause what I try to breed
is me in you.
There's no one else to blame,
this is my favorite pain
and all I want to gain
is myself in you.

Wrath is growing now
through my sunken eyes
Pain is growing
I'm jaded from your lies

I don't know why
but it's the best way to die
You are the trigger
and my deepest desire
I'm losing you, but you will always be mine
Promise me now
that you will enter my mind,
enter my mind,
enter my mind.

    i think its about someone who is trying to change someone else... they want to see themselves in that person, so they can trust them... however, it's not working, so they're getting pissed at that person and losing them

    I actually see this song as being about two people who used to be in love. One of them is causing the other emotional pain and the other knows it's over, but she doesn't want to let go. She wants to leave her mark [emotionally] on that person so they never forget her. I agree with Jeckie in that it's sort of masochistic.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.

Somewhere Only We Know
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."

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.”
