I see you nearly every day,
I see you but you don't see me.
Wish i'd something clever to say and,
Wish i'd something better i could be.

We touched hands by the coffee machine the other day,
I know you've forgotten already, but im gonna take that moment to the grave.

'coz i just want to walk you home,
I just want to walk you home.

Oh Yeh.

I see you nearly every night,
I see you when you're down in your house.
my night vision binoculars and I
creep quiet as a mouse.

Well i get jealous when i see you stroking his hair,
but it's ok i tell myself 'coz i know it's only I'm not there
I'm not there....

'coz i just want to walk you home,
I just want to walk you home.
Well i just need some time alone,
I just need some time alone.

I'm the boy who watches the phone,
I'm the boy who eats lunch on his own,
I'm the boy with the monotone,
I'm the boy, still lives at home.
I'm the boy with the ironed shirt,
I'm the boy who watches you work,
I know where you keep your skirts,
I know where your secrets lurk.
I'm the boy that's calling your house,
I'm the boy that's freaking you out,
With my thermal flask of tea,
Up there in your neighbour's tree.
I'm the boy that's crossing borders,
I'm the boy with social disorders,
I'm the boy with restraining orders,
I'm the boy yeah.

'coz i just want to walk you home,
I just want to walk you home.
Well i know that it's not right to creep,
But i just want to watch you sleep... alone.
I say i just want to walk you home,
I just want to walk you home.

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.
