Whenever the sunshine comes through
Whenever my thoughts turn to you
Whatever you want me to do
I will be there

Whether I crawl uphill
Try to not be through the mill
Just as long as I fit the bill
I will be there

If it's on a lazy afternoon in summertime
And you're drinking champagne and wine
Anytime, I don't mind
And even if I've got the blues
Yeah after I pay all my dues
You decide to go for a cruise
I will be there

And if it's on a lazy afternoon in summertime
And you're drinking champagne and wine
Anytime, I don't mind
And even if I've got the blues
I'm tired of paying oh so many dues
And you decide to go for a cruise
Going to grab my razor and my suitcase
And my toothbrush and my overcoat
And my underwear
I will be there

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"

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.

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.
