When all the dark clouds roll away
And the sun begins to shine
I see my freedom from across the way
And it comes right in on time
Well it shines so bright and it gives so much light
And it comes from the sky above
Make me feel so free make me feel like me
And it lights my life with love

And it seems like (seems like) and it feels like (feels like)
And it seems like (seems like), yes it feels like (feels like)
A brand new day (a brand new day)
A brand new day, yeah, yeah (a brand new day)

I was lost, double crossed
With my hands behind my back
I was longtime hurt and thrown in the dirt
Shoved out on the railroad track
I've been used, abused and so confused
And I didn't have nowhere to run
But I stood and looked
And my eyes got hooked
On that beautiful morning sun

And it seems like (seems like) and it feels like (feels like)
And it seems like (seems like), yes it feels like (feels like)
A brand new day (a brand new day)
A brand new day, yeah, yeah (a brand new day)

And the sun shines down all on the ground
Yeah, and the grass is oh so green
And my heart is still and I've got the will
And I don't really feel so mean
Here it comes, here it comes
Here it comes right now
And it comes right in on time
Well it eases me and it pleases me
And it satisfies my mind

And it seems like (seems like) yes it feels like (feels like)
And it seems like (seems like), yes it feels like (feels like)
A brand new day (a brand new day)
A brand new day, yeah, yeah (a brand new day)
Brand new day (seems like a brand new day)
Whoa, whoa (feels like a brand new day)
(Seems like a brand new day)
Hey, hey
(Feels like a brand new day)
(Seems like a brand new day)
(Feels like a brand new day)

    One of the few songs that you don't have to try to decipher. Its the human condition.

    Haven't we all felt like this at some point in our lives?

    I absolutely love this song. It's true, we've all felt like this at some point, and he captures that feeling perfectly here.

    This song came into my heart at a time when I so badly needed it - the words spoke to me like poetry...Van Morrison has a brilliant and calming sense in his lyrics that always bring me to a better place. This part is what really got to me; And the sun shines down all on the ground, Yeah and the grass is oh so green -And my heart is still and I've got the will And I don't really feel so mean Here it comes, here it comes 0 here it comes right now And it comes right in on time Well it eases me and it pleases me And it satisfies my mind

This is one of my favorite songs. https://fnfgo.io

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
