I'm out in the rain again,
Going berserk over all the things she said
But I can't read the note
I tore that shit into a million shreds
Ah, but the words still reign in my head
Oh, the words still remain

Oh, love will bring us down
Our love will bring us down

I noticed she's been listening
A lot to Joy Division lately
And I noticed that darkness in her smile
And her eye reveals a song I wouldn't listen to

Desperation and sex,
I'd rather choose sun and boys
Desperation and sex,
I'd rather choose sun and boys

Yeah, love will bring us down
Our love will bring us down
Oh, love will bring us down
Our love will bring us down

Oh, love will bring us down
Our love will bring us down
Our love will bring us down
Our love will bring us down

    I wasn't sure of the lyrics for "I noticed she's been listenin' A lot to Joy Lavition lately" and "I'd rather shoot sun and boys." I just kind of guessed as to what he was singing. If you know the correct lyrics (or have a better guess, haha) let me know. :)

    It's Joy Divison (a (great) band), i think it's basicly about his girlfriend going of and becoming emo (or something like that), listening to "joy divison - love will tear us apart," then using that song as some kind of reason to break up with her.

    "then using that song as some kind of reason to break up with HIM" of course, not her.

    I think the correct words are 'I rather choose sun and boys' since it's about the subject of the songs he wished ske liked to listen to, instead of songs about 'desperation and sex', if he could choose her music taste, he would have choosed sun and boys.. but that's just me guessing :)

    lowe will tear us apart is a very good song btw :)

    Wow, hemulen cracked this one for me... thanks!

    "her eye reveals a song I wouldn't listen to" is such a good lyric.. these lyrics are perfect. It stuns me that SKWBN can write songs like this without being able to speak perfect English. :D

    A sunny day song. She dumped him due to a new morbid leaning (feeling love isn't worth the pain it causes) while he thinks the high points will be worth it. The relationship has ended and their love has brought him down, as she tried to protect herself from the pain.

    I agree with most of the others, but I'd say there's also a queer side to the song. He says she's become all about desperation and sex, but he'd rather choose "sun and boys".

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.

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.

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.
