I've been crying (ooh, ooh)
'Cause I'm lonely (for you)
Smiles have all turned (to tears)
But tears won't wash away the fears
That you're never ever gonna return
To ease the fire that within me burns

It keeps me crying, baby, for you
Keeps me sighin', baby, for you
So won't you hurry
Come on boy, see about me (come see about me)
See about your baby (come see about me)

I've given up my friends just (for you)
My friends are gone and you have too
No peace shall I find
Until you come back and be mine
No matter what you do or say
I'm gonna love you anyway

Keep on crying, baby, for you
I'm gonna keep sighin', baby, for you
So come on hurry
Come on and see about me (come see about me)
See about your baby (come see about me)

Sometime's up (up, ooh ooh)
Sometime's down
My life's so uncertain
With you not around
From my arms you may be out of reach
But my heart says you're here to keep

Keeps me crying, baby, for you
Keep on, keep on crying, baby, for you
So won't you hurry
Come on boy, see about me (come see about me)
See about your baby (come see about me)
You know I'm so lonely (come see about me)
I love you only (come see about me)
See about your baby (come see about me)
Hurry, hurry (come see about me)

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.
