I wear my heart on my sleeve
I'm not afraid
Say what I mean
Mean what I say
Set myself up
Let myself down
I may be a fool
Spread it around
And I, just want to let you know
Sometimes I, find it so hard not to show
So I sigh

And I let my feelings show
I wear my heart on my sleeve
Don't count the cost
If I can't live enough
Though you tend to get burned
You tend to get bruised
But it's my life

The way that I choose
And I, just want to let you know
Sometimes I, find it so hard not to show
Ooh don't sigh

Baby you're not alone
I'll wear my heart on my sleeve
Wear my heart on my sleeve
I wear my heart on my sleeve
Wear my heart on my sleeve
Ooh and I, just want to let you know
Sometimes I, find it so hard not to show
Don't you sigh
Maybe you're not alone
I wear my heart on my sleeve
Wear my heart on my sleeve

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.
