Concentrate

Well, don't you know these are days that leave you empty
They're leaving you cold
And say to me as we grow old
These are the days that last forever
Never let it go

And I braved what I could
And I stand where you stood
And I never breathed a word

And I could pray you never leave
This constant ache, I do believe
Reach down and deliver it
Swear to me now, ever since I hold my side
You're not convinced
And I'm told it's deliberate

And I braved what I could
And I stand where you stood
And leave
Well, please watch
Please watch over me

I thought this day would never come
You're dealing with a sad one
I stay away, I'm deaf and dumb
I'm telling everyone
God, it's priceless

And I braved what I could
And I stand where you stood
And leave
Well, please watch
Please watch over me

I stand you stood
And I swear I'll never breathe a word

    this band is great, not very many people know of them, but im seeing em in concert in 3 days =)

    they used to be known as knapsack, that may clear upa few things and let everyone who likes this song, and the other few by jealous sound, to find some of their older work

    not to cause a ruckus, but clearing up things may not be all that easy when you have the wrong facts. Only Blair Shehan was part of Knapsack. Pedro Benito (guitarist) was formerly of Sunday's Best, Michel Bravine (drummer) was formerly of the Killingtons and John McGinnis, formerly of Neither Trumpets Nor Drums, on bass.

    but yea, this band is great. and they have awesome lyrics and a totally unique sound.

    I think this song talks about maturity. It takes a lifetime to realize that the best days of our lives are the ones that we are currently living. The singer and his friend have grown apart and he says they should hold on to those memories because they are priceless. :0)

    Man, I haven't listened to this song in about two years now (how time flies), but I always thought it was about a relationship that has gone badly, but neither of them want to admit it to anyone else ("And I never breathed a word"). They're telling everyone it's priceless when secretly they both know it's all falling apart.

    i think...\ this is about a girl who really let herself suffer in a bad situation during a relationship and she's letting herself go on and act like everthing is ok when they go out.

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"

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.
