i want to walk in your rain just damp at first wet spots on my shirt soak it all in soaked to my skin clothes heavy with water downpour how'd i get so far away from where you are and never noticed 'til now if i thought that you'd hear me if i thought that i could speak this is what i'd ask for a downpour i want to know your name i want to hold your hands and soak it all in i want to feel the rain on my face again and soak it all in i want you to come be me share my eyes and splash with me and the puddles won't matter at all downpour it doesn't matter where you're at now you can always come home

    This is such a beautiful song. The first time I heard it was today, and I keept playing it. I'm already hooked. I had heard Brandtson before, and liked them, but I just rediscovered them I guess! It's an ephiphany!

    I like the christian meanings I can relate to in Brandtson lyrics. To me this song is just so relateable. "How'd I get so far from where You are?" I like that line, because I know that when you're backsliding, you don't even realize it until you've gone so far you can't even remember what it feels like to be in love with God. "If I thought that You'd hear me, if I thought that I could speak... this is what I'd ask for". sometiimes it seems like you're so far away from God that He can't even hear you anymore. and the part "If I thought that I could speak..." I like that part. "I want to know Your name, I want to hold Your hands and soak it all in. I want to feel the rain on my face again and soak it all in". To me that part is like he's saying he wants to be close to God again, wants to know His name. And the downpour is like the presence of God or the Spirit of God. He wants to feel the rain on his face again and soak it all in. i don't know. I just think it's beautiful.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
