We're dancing barefoot on the moonlit sand
We're making music, we don't need a band
I can't believe we only met tonight
'Cause we won't let each other out of sight
Maybe I should feel a twinge of shame
We're almost lovers I don't know your name
A voice inside shouts like a traffic cop
(Stop)
I'm gonna love you after all...

[Chorus:]
(All) on a summer night
Who cares about tomorrow
Baby all on a summer night
And everything will turn out right

It's 6 a.m., we've danced all through the night
You're even better in the morning light
Funny tinglings moving up my spine
It may be love or maybe just the wine
The sun's begun to turn my head around
Or is it you that make my temples pound?
A voice inside shouts like a traffic cop
(Stop)
I'm gonna love you anyway

[Chorus:]
On a summer day
Who cares about tomorrow
Baby all on a summer day
I'm gonna love you anyway
(or) You're gonna love me anyway

Spoken:
You and me
All alone here on the beach tonight
With the moon and the stars
And the sound of the waves
Oh, I know this night will never end
I love you darling, always

We fell asleep out in the burning heat
The evening tide is washed up on our feet
We're all alone here on this beach again
Let's take a swim and wash away the sand
I feel like celebrating finding you
We're off and running for the whole night through
A voice inside shouts like a traffic cop
(Stop)
You say you love me after all

(All) on a summer night
The greatest things can happen
Baby all on a summer night
And everything has turned out right

[Chorus:]

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

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"
