under stars. i watch the sky. as night consumes the daylight. and i recall the sweetest dreams. but red wine helps them fade. here's to another glass. i need it to displace. the emptiness i cannot swallow. i tried to cleanse these guilty hands. but the stains they won't leave. i tried to rush to your defense. but i tripped on my weak words. don't terrorize. my senseless whines will fade. my eyes complain. my mouth stays shut. i leave you in your bed. i pulled your teeth. to hear the truth. the truth is it still kills me to this day. but don't terrorize. my senseless whines will fade. into another glass. it's too soon for today. today i feel about okay. i wait for these nights to come to an end. so i can feel at home. i tried to rush to your defense. but these guilty hands they shake. don't terrorize. my senseless whines will fade. if i could split my heart in two. i'd give the beating half to you. if these words never rise above us. i swear i'd slit my wrists for you. if life becomes so cold and dim. that to breathe is to live. then i'll breathe for you. but i won't repent. i won't repent for what i did to make this break. here's to another glass. i need it to replace the emptiness. i cannot take away

    This song definately has a suicidal tone to it. I think it's about someone who's trying to deal with a friend who attempted suicide, and neither of them are all too stable. It seems to say basically "hey, i'm fucked up and you're fucked up, but i'm going to help you however I can anyway." It's about giving your all when you've got nothing to give just to help someone you love. The end of this song is brilliant though. "If i could split my heart in 2 I'd give the beating half to you..."

    lyrics like these cannot be beaten. one of the few songs that i can feel without even hearing the music. such great passion. such amazing talent. the white octave is beyond amazing.

    rock on.

    Well... to add to that.

    I think that this song is about how they blame something they did/ didnt do for there losing someone. To suicide or whatever. And the guilt and lonliness has turned them to alcohol. Or maybe there drink problem made the person leave them. I think its the first idea though.

    Yeah that and, beautiful

    it's about drinking away someone who is gone.

    maybe by suicide.

    "if i could split my heart in two, i'd give the beating half to you. if these words never rise above us, i swear i'd slit my wrists for you. if life becomes so cold and dim that to breathe is to live, then i'll breathe for you."

    this song makes me ache.

    oh my gosh. i recently found out my high school sweet heart is getting married. this song captures what im feeling so well. thats what about good song writers: they take what you are thinking and put it to song

    maybe about trying to forget that you did something to ruin a relationship you wish you didn\'t ruin. About the guilt when you realise you are finally getting over it (it\'s too soon for today, today i feel about ok), and about the devotion you still have to someone you\'ve lost.

    This song is so good.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Dreamwalker
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.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
