Verse 1:

Looking around, kicking them down, I’m diseased by the sounds
I look, to cross, the street and I’m down
Blown, out of the air, out of the sky
Out of the world I used to know, and I die
Living this life with love, is so beautiful
Getting to give, and giving it up and acting dutiful
I look out not now just to see a way, oh lord I’m back from yesterday

And I fade away
I’m going to, the place where I lay, unconscious day
And I see a way
Spanning the time I’ve lost, you’re calling me, back from yesterday
Verse 2:

Well don’t look now, death apparently found
Super personification as we rise to higher ground
The only chance he’s got for survival, cutting across, and bringing it back,
With the revival
So reaching it up now to the skies where I preside
To the consequential, key, to the world and then we die
Yes I wrote it in stone I looked away, oh lord I’m back from yesterday

Verse 3:

Emphasize again, the contraband of a world unable
Look it’s unstable, fucked, like Kane and Able
And I look out now with undying youth, oh lord I’m back forever you

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.
