Sundown's coming
Don't let it stop you from nothing
Cause ahead I see that there's a light on, right on

Break down in pieces
Tell me all your secrets
You won't get lost, I promise
There's a light on, right on
There's a light on, right on

Lately I've been meaning
To let you in on some feelings
Here I am, do you see them
Shine the light on, right on
There's a light on, right on
A safe place to admit

That I am not right
I don't know what it is, I'm just not right
I need someone to untangle, cut the wires inside
If we're honest, I am not quite right

Shine your light onto my weaknesses

Something cut me
There's bitterness in my bloodstream
Been holding on to dead things
Shine that light on, right on
There's a light on, light on
A safe place to admit

That I am not right
I don't know what it is, I'm just not right
I need someone to untangle, cut the wires inside
If we're honest, I am not quite right

So heaven help me
Meet me as fast as you can
On the corner of the street and the maze in my head

I am not right
I don't know what it is, I'm just not quite right
I need someone to untangle, cut the wires inside
If we're honest, I am not quite right

I am not right
I don't know what it is, I'm just not right
I need someone to untangle, cut the wires inside
If we're honest, I am not quite right

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"

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
