Speak your mind
Will you stop wasting my time
Torn in two different directions
Now the past is coming up on us

I'll watch the world burn through the reflection in your eyes
Higher in the atmosphere for the lovers it gets lonelier

We wait, we wait, we wait, we wait
Separated by three arms length
Like satellites, like satellites
We drift, we drift, we drift away
Not meant to be, we 360
Like satellites, like satellites

Say goodnight
Maybe we should say goodbye
Thrown around again in circles
Wading underneath the sky

Waiting for a sign
That maybe we should try
In our bed I only sleep on one side
I'm on the edge 'til the morning light

I'll watch the world burn through the reflection in your eyes
Higher in the atmosphere for the lovers it gets lonelier

We wait, we wait, we wait, we wait
Separated by three arms length
Like satellites, like satellites
We drift, we drift, we drift away
Not meant to be, we 360
Like satellites, like satellites

(Satellites)
(Satellites)
(Now the past is coming up on us)

(Satellites)
(Satellites)
(Now the past is coming up on us)

I'll watch the world burn through the reflection in your eyes
Higher in the atmosphere for the lovers it gets lonelier

We wait, we wait, we wait, we wait
Separated by three arms length
Like satellites, like satellites
We drift, we drift, we drift away
Not meant to be, we 360
Like satellites, like satellites

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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"

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
