though this place is so crowded
you feel so alone
'cause you're eye to eye with him
and you know he will take you
he's got nothing to lose
and there's no way for you to win
desperados in love
won't kill this sweet dove
for nuggets of fleeting bliss
c'mon, c'mon you can't escape
the bleeding bullet of a kiss

here comes that golden feeling
it's shining in your eyes
we're always going on and on
right from that day they start to shine

it's a new situation
the start of a game,
you've already won the prize
he's a lunatic dancer
who's not aware
that he's skating on thin ice
there's no turning back
no time for regrets,
you should've known better, though
another chance
to fall in love
another chance
to turn you on
another chance
to turn you on

here comes that golden feeling
it's shining in your eyes
we're always going on and on
right from that day
they start to shine

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
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.

There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
