i remember when we were much younger. when we played down in the neighborhood. year by year the world's been spinning faster. it's so hard to keep the track of time. when i look at you i can't help thinking that sometimes we don't appreciate. all the things that we just take for given. without thinking bout the way we act. hey i'm sorry i was such an asshole and did some things that i don't understand. maybe someday you will learn to trust me. and i will try to be a better friend. when your world is filled with woe and sorrow. then i want you to remember that we're the same blood till the end. well baby's coming back. oh well you know. it's the right side of the track. well it took so long. but i'll see your face again. and it won't be long. i'll never walk away from your side. there's a time for every sin we're making. there's a time for making our regrets. sometimes i wish i could sing like edith and say i didn't wanna change a thing. but i'm sorry for the pain i've caused you. and baby if i could go back in time. i'd be with you in your darkest hour. then i wouldn't turn my back on you. so come on out. see how the weather's changing. though i thought we'd never see the sun. and there's a line forever tied between us. and there will always come a better time. when your world is filled with woe and sorrow. then i want you to remember that we're the same blood till the end

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
