Don't wanna play these silly games
Running all around, go on up, come on down
Don't wanna say, I made mistakes
I've had enough of life
I'm giving up,on yours and mine

You're on your own now, this freedom numbs you
You're on your own now, grief over comes you
Is it fear that calls your name?
Are you guilty just the same?

I hear the sighs, of the one tracked minds
Every step I can retrace
Now I'm leaving this place
Leaving this place
Now I'm leaving this place

Some ties are made, so hard to break
It's taken all the strength of mind
To cunjure up another side
I'm on the way, tomorrows land
Have you seen the light?
It's been burning us, a thousand times

You're on your own now, this reason haunts you
You're on your own now, belief overawes you
Is it fear that calls your name?
Are you guilty just the same?

As I leave the fight,and the valour slides
No more tragedy to face
Now I'm leaving this place
Leaving this place
Now I'm leaving this place

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,

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.

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.
