Let it go, everyone's bound to know that I've lost you again
This time you wound up with someone else
Your own will let me down

Put your arms around me
For the first and last time
And say sincerely that you'll keep me in mind

'Cause time won't wait
'Til it's too late
To find out who you were
If you had let me make
One honest mistake
I'd try to change your mind

I try to set an example for all of those who blame their luck
You seem to know where you're heading now
I know this and that's not much

Tell me all the things that you never dared to say
Say you're glad you told me
That he isn't going to stay

'Cause time won't wait
'Til i's too late
To find out who you were
If you had let me make

One honest mistake
I'd try to change your mind
We've sent letters out there
But you don't care

You know you'll manage alone
We've sent letters to you
They never get through
'Cause you'll get by on your own

If you are to change your mind
Don't think I'll forget where I have been
I'll stay 'till this torment's over
And I know not where I'm going

Make
It
Easy
On
Me
Please

I have no choice but to let it go
'though I know you'll still be here
But I'll never know you the way he does
Let me know if I will

'Cause time won't wait
'Til it's too late
To find out who you were
If you had let me make

One honest mistake
I'd try to change your mind
We've sent letters out there
But you don't care

You know you'll manage alone
We've sent letters to you
They never get through
'Cause you'll get by on your own

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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"

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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.
