Knock knock knock who's there who's
Knock knock knock who's there anybody
Knock knock knock who's there who's
Who's there who's there who's there who's there

If you're wondering while you're knocking
Why I ain't opening up
I'm loving your best friend
If you're wondering while you're knocking
Why I ain't opening up
I'm loving your best friend

If you wonder why I'm tripping
Started out when we stopped talking
Found myself in the corner off drinking
But the problem just won't go
I distract myself with music
But my ear drums just refused it
So I dig into my wallet
And I stare at your photo

When I think of all the time
Candlelight, dinner and wine
You're the rib that's in my spine
But you would not make no time

So your girlfriend came around
All those times that you left town
Made me feel just like a king
When she sat down on my crown


Now it might seem kind of shady
And it shoots like a 380
Though I'm in another lady
I'm still thinking 'bout my baby
All the things we used to do, when I used to call you Boo
It felt like we were in grade school
But all those days are through

All those thoughts of going to the chapel
It's like someone just burned my castle
Paint the picture like Picasso
But the image fades
Now for some it might sound deep
But I just received a beep
So I called back anxiously
She put her lover on the line

If you're wondering when you're calling
Why I ain't calling you back
She said I'm loving a new man (she said to me)
If you're wondering when you're calling
Why I ain't calling you back
She said I'm lovin' a new man
(She said that she had someone new)
If you're wondering when you're calling why I ain't calling you back
I'm loving a new man

Oh oh baby please (baby please)
You know this situation's buggin' me (buggin' me)
You got someone else but your girl's with me (girl's with me)
It's only so I can get by

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"

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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,

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
