I think I could love
You people
I think I could love
Some of you people

If you weren't so afraid
Of what you dont know
Sometimes you're so afraid
Of what you don't know
But you say that that's not so

Can you see your children
Looking to the sea
I have watched all your children
Looking to the sea

If you just would understand
But you won't know
You never understand
And so you won't know
But you'll say that that's not so
And you'll say that that's not so

It's so frightening to see you burn
It's so beautiful to watch you cry
And now I'm going to fly
And you won't know
And now I'm going to fly
And you won't know
Still you'll say that that's not so

I think I can love
You people
Sometimes I think I could love
Some of you people
If you weren't so afraid

    I have no clue...It could be about people in France, hence the Lay Playa part...

    It's a great song though

    La Playa means "the beach" in Spanish, yes.

    As for what this song means, my explanation might be completely off, but I'm going to run with it. To me, it sounds like it's being sung from the viewpoint of someone non-human or someone otherwise not part of the "normal". And even though he doesn't fully understand how everyone else operate, he observes them, and wants to join them. To me, it's almost like a Frankenstein's monster kind of idea. He's lonely, and has an innocent sort of wisdom, but people are afraid of him or what he has to say.

    Boy Hits Car owns my soul, period. They're so underrated.

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"

He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
