Sit home and come up with excuses
Why you can't hang out tonight
Then excuse you for coming up with them
This subject is dark, so shed some light

Like the time you said you hate me
Only to deny it the next day
It all depends on who you're with
If you're gonna be that way

And it's (Just like old times)
And it's (Just like old times)

And isn't that just what you wanted
From you eyes I couldn't tell
I really only wanted to be just
You can no longer cast your spell (on me)

And it's (Just like old times)
And it's (Just like old times)
Don't need someone to remind me
Just tell someone to come find me
Well, I'm left behind

Now your plane is leaving tommorow
But I wish that you would stay
You should be leaving your plane
You got it wrong the other way

And it's (Just like old times)
And it's (Just like old times)
Don't need anyone to remind me
Just tell someone to come find me
Well, I'm left behind
(Just like old times)
I'm left behind
(Just like old times)
I'm left behind
(Just like old times)
Just like old times

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.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Somewhere Only We Know
Keane
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."
