You think you'll get under ol' monsieur's lid
And try to imagine all the things that he did
You don't know where I'm gonna go
You don't know where I'll go

I'll go none too bravely
Into the night
I'm so tired of living
The suicide life
That ain't no reason to live

Wake up in the night and think of all the years
Falling from the ceiling and covering your ears
You don't know how you're gonna get out
You don't know how you'll get out

I'll go none too bravely
Into the night
I'm so tired of living
The suicide life
That ain't no reason to live

Call up your best friend
And tell him a lie
You've got to be kidding
I'm not really high
I don't know where I'm gonna go
I don't know where I'll go

I'll go none too bravely
Into the night
I'm so tired of living
The suicide life
That ain't no reason to live

    Pretty self-explantory, really.

    To me this is just about depression. Being so sick of feeling that way, and being desperate for it to stop, and all the thoughts that spin through your head.

    "You've got to be kidding, I'm not really high"

    I always thought it said "I'm moderately high," which made me laugh. then i went back and listened closer and got disappointed.

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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
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.

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.
