I sit above the rooms of our home. Expose myself to a loss that I've known. No clouds exist in this blue sky. I use my sense for the first time. My hands hold on to the horizon. Can't catch my breath, so I stop trying. This small part of me counts down mathematically. It will bury me with you. I am here for just a short time. You've been gone for this stretch of my life. Please live through me. Now this tragedy becomes reality to our family. I am here for just a short time. You've been gone for this stretch of my life. This small part of me counts down mathematically. It will bury me with you.

    this is my favorite sbb song of all time!! it took a while to grow on me, because it's the last song on the album i didn't get around to listening to it for a while, but once i payed attention i fell in love. the intro/outro are so pretty, this song is thoroughly depressing, but it a great way. I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH

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.
