Get me out of here
Get me out of here

You used to be someone I could trust
But all of that didn't last too long
I don't know what I believe anymore
God, where the hell did we go wrong?
Your silence shatters my sense of hope
How could this happen?
What did I miss?
My whole world's falling down around me
God, how could you desert me at a time like this?

Come on

I'm not perfect, nobody's perfect
But what the fuck was I supposed to do?
I'm washing my hands
I'm cleansing my soul
Now all I had will die with you
So bury that good, and let that shit rot
'Cause if your only question's
"What's in it for me?"
Well, then you might as well gouge out your own fucking eyes
For there are none so blind as those who will not see

Come on

Flesh for food, and blood for wine
Because some scars don't heal with time
Flesh for food, and blood for wine
Because my scars don't heal with time
Flesh for food, and blood for wine
And all my love was left behind

Put your money where your mouth is

Yeah

Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
(Everything I touch)

Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here

Come on
Flesh for food, and blood for wine
And all my love was left behind

Flesh for food, and blood for wine
Flesh for food, and blood for wine
Flesh for food, and blood for wine
We're just flesh and blood, never divine

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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"

Dreamwalker
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.

Magical
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.

Blue
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.
