You're earth bound and I'm injured,
We move too fast to remember the drive on to me.
Drive on to me, we carved the days from the hours,
You showed me all I could have in the drive on to me.
You were free when I was taken.
You did your best to change that in the drive on to me.
You stop and I'm in over drive
You hooked the stars with your eyes in the drive on to me.
Accident when we needed, I'm stronger as we near it.
We can't help to watch this whole thing crash together.
We are the bruised and the tender.
We are the crack that was mended.
From all the times we ever tried
We should've found each other in this drive on to me.

    This song is tied with Thursday for 'Best Songs About Car Crashes...even though there is more to it' catagory. This song has some unbelieveable (sp?) vocals and backing vocals that would make Chris Carrabba nut his pants and fall down and shake. If you don't have Elliott's CD 'False Cathedrals' yet, get it, so I don't have to keep reviewing songs to get you to buy it.

    i hate labels. but yeah, id label 'em emo too. when you label a group you like its like you have a responsibility to only like that kind of music. maybe its just me, but i dont like that feeling and thats why i dont label groups. its good music and everyone should like it. its a masterpiece that i love dearly.

    I love this song, it's so powerful and unlike most bands that are considered emo, the lyrics are well contructed and have true meaning. Also, with the tight guitar and drum parts, it's just a simply perfect song. Elliott ownz me. Somethingworth, I am love close to home and top of the world. Something to Write home about was the first get up kids cd i had and someone showed me the joys of the juliana theory. Good stuff all around.

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"

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

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.

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.
