We could let this love be the fading sky
Or we could drift all night until the new sun rise
Pass me a drink or maybe two
One for me and one for you

And we'll be free
Free
Free
Free

Here comes Kona Winds and the changing tide
We better drop them sails and get inside
When will the weather ever let us go?
I guess we'll have to wait until the trade winds blow

When we'll be free
Free
Free
Free

There's nothing in between
What we are, what we see
There's nothing in between
What we are, what we see
What we are, we are just

On a life boat sailing home
With our drunken hearts and our tired bones
Well, I just take one last look around
Yeah and every place feels like a familiar town

And now we're free
Free
And don't ya wanna be
Free
From time to time a little
Free
(Hey now, now)
Free
I know, you know your
Free
Feels so good to be
Free
Mm-hmm, free

    i love this song, it reminds me of the freedoms of summer. my fav line is: "Pass me a drink or maybe two One for me and one for you And we'll be Free, Free" its just such a nice, careless song.

    I genuinely love this song. Always puts me in a better mood. I'm actually surprised more people haven't commented it.

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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.
