Every day of every year
You live your life in hope and fear
That each small sin and imperfection
Is buried deep beyond detection
But one by one the ghosts return
And each selects its place to burn
Into your soft and breaking heart
And this is how the aching starts

The jokes about the ugly kid
The things you said but never did
And the people torn and crushed and battered
The ones you broke but should've flattered

Oh, you should have run whilst you had time
Oh, you should have left the past behind

The boy from the chemist is here to see you
The laughing stops 'cause he's too near you
The girl you left that always loved you
Returns to earth from miles above you now

So wash away the dirty skin
There's always worse remains within
The tangled web and bitter mesh
But each shall have their pound of flesh
No sympathy, no charity
No false pleas of humility
No money back, no guarantee
No great escape for you and me

Oh, you should have run whilst you had time
Oh, you should have left the past behind

The boy from the chemist is here to see you
The laughing stops 'cause he's too near you
The girl you left that always loved you
Returns to earth from miles above you now

And everyone that ever suffered
Friend or foe or wives and lovers
They'll come back to have their day
In time you find your mind has no escape

Don't believe that you can hide
Don't believe they'll be denied
They'll come knocking at your door
This is what they've waited for
The chance to even up the score

The boy from the chemist is here to see you
The laughing stops 'cause he's too near you
The girl you left that always loved you
Returns to earth from miles above you now

And everyone that ever suffered
Friend or foe or wives and lovers
They'll come back to have their day
In time you find your mind has no escape

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"

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.
