I'm on my way back home
I lost my way
I've gone astray
I'm on my way back home
They'll let me in, from the cold.

'Cause I'm the new kid, like everybody
'Cause everybody lives again
I'm in my new skin
Safe in knowing, one day we will meet again

I'm sheltered here, in my wings
And I won't forget, you're everything
In your heart, is where I live
That's alright, you are alive

'Cause I'm the new kid, like everybody
'Cause everybody lives again
I'm in my new skin
Safe in knowing, that one day we will meet again

Said I'm alright
And now
Said I'm alright...

'Cause I'm the new kid, like everybody
'Cause everybody lives again
I'm in my new skin
Safe in knowing, that one day we will meet again

    Unless this song is a metaphor for something, it sounds like it's about him moving away from his girlfriend. The only thing keeping him going is knowing that someday he will see her again.

    I think it's about having to leave someone, and not being able to come back. Starting anew with everyone and everything. No matter what though, this song rocks.

    It's about Nate's step-dad, who died on Super Bowl Sunday. he went to the store to get beer, and died in a car crash. the step dad is the new kid in Heaven.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

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/

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.
Album art
American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
