E
Angel that you are
G#m
You still remember summer walks
F#m B E
And quiet talks we had before our clouds were broken
E
In the heaven of your mind
G#m
Your hopeful heart has put behind
F#m B E
All the ugly jealous times our hearts were aching
Am E
Now that your pain has been mended
Am E
You're only seeing one side
Am E
Behind the bright easy laughter
Am E
Rivers of tears have been cried
E F#m
So remember the rain
B7 E
When you think of the sunshine
A
You've got to try and see
G#m
That's it's gone for you and me
F#m B7 E
And there is no way to bring it back again
E G#m
In a sad unstable way I love you more than I can say
F#m B E
But it's locked in yesterday and must remain there
E
The gentle prisoner in the stall
G#m
Sometimes forgets the very walls
F#m B E
That gave her shelter in the fall have also chained her
Am E
Drink from the spring of tomorrow
Am E
Yesterday's well has gone dry
Am E
All the good times are behind us
Am E
Whenever you ask yourself why
F#m B7 E
Just remember the rain when you think of the sunshine
A G#m
On the ocean of a smile we floated easy for awhile
F#m B7 E
But now we're drifted to the shore where beauty dies
E
It isn't easy to explain
G#m
I never dreamed you felt the same
F#m B E
And even though you're not to blame we can't continue
E G#m
Don't let yourself pretend that we've got something to defend
F#m B E
You've got to try to face the end with all that's in you
Am E
I can't deny that I love you
Am E
But my soul can no longer be bound
Am E
Fly on the wings of your freedom
Am E
But whenever you look to the ground
F#m B7 E
Just remember the rain when you think of the sunshine
A G#m
Try to understand that it's fallen from our hands
F#m B7 E
And just be thankful that your soul is still your own

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"

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.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
