Episode four leads us away from here. Don't expect to find what you're will intends. IÊcan see the light leading away from you. Let's dissappear, we'll take a trip of no return to outter space. And swim in pools which keep us warm. Cleaned off the scent from off your faith. We'll dance off time to the songs we've never liked. And sing off key, thinkin it sounds alright. And you know I almost lost my will to live. Show and tell turning your episode four.. (repeat).

    A guess: The title of "Episode IV" in the StarWars saga is "A New Hope". Perhaps this song refers to just that - finding a new hope for life in someone you love. =]

    how has no one commented JEW's greatest love song? i especially love the 'sing off key, thinkin it sounds alright' bit because thats what a lot of people do when they're in love, in the sense that you no longer care what is happening as long as you and your partner are happy. i can't be cruel to a song with a star wars reference either. beautiful.

    I agree.

    How can there be no comments (except for us two now) over this song.

    This is easily one of JEW's greatest songs. JEW shows thier musical ability in every song they play and this song shows one of their many aspects. Beautiful.

    Great song, Great band.

    Yeah I really love this JEW song. Although it always makes me really sad. Beautiful lyrics and a wonderful song all around. It is deffinetly a love song but it has such a melancholy feel to it. It breaks my heart when he says " and you know I almost lost my will to live"

    Man, this song is likely the best off static prevails. It's a pure emotion and comforting song to simply listen to. I love how this band can just warm your heart by hearing a song, even if you don't catch all the lyrics. And then, once you hear all the lyrics, it just amplifies the song's power. "we'll dance off time to the songs we've never liked. and sing of key, thinking it sounds alright" i can't get over those lyrics right there. perfect. Heheh, yeah, guess i'm just addicted/in love with music overall. And this band masters all that music was made for.

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"

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.
