everything about you is a picture worth a thousand words. try as i may i try in vain. there's more to you than i could ever hope to explain. i don't think you know. i'll never be the same again. purity stood in front of me and said "i'm clumsy and my back hurts" and i thought "you're about as beautiful as God's creation gets" and i've seen oceans and sunsets that took away my breath. and you remind me of everything that's precious in His sight and i don't think you'll ever realize just how much you've touched my life. everything i thought i knew redefined in the light of you. though the white it burns my eyes. all my shadows fall behind me. i don't think you know why i'll never be the same. try as i may i try in vain. there's more to you than i could ever explain. i can't find the words for you

    I love this song. "purity stood in front of me and said 'i'm clumsy and my back hurts' and i thought 'you're about as beautiful as God's creation gets.'" One of my favorite, most meaningful lyrical exerts ever.

    this is the type of love that I want for the person that I will marry. and that's the type of person that I want to marry. I want someone that's not physically beautiful but so much more than that... a pure, godly beauty that's upright in God's sight. and that's what I want our love to be like too. so pure and blameless. And "about as beautiful as God's creation gets".

    This song..means alot, especially these lyrics: "I've seen oceans and sunsets that took away my breath and you remind me of everything that's precious in His sight. And I don't think you'll ever realize just how much you've touched my life. Everything I thought I knew, redefined in the light of you, though the white, it burns my eyes." ----these guys...sure as crud can't explain how ORIGINAL and just so meaningful that their lyrics and music are...They are coming to Knoxville,TN on Mothers Day, 2003 at Java In The Old City. It's an all ages show, 5 bucks to get in and starts at 7 p.m.! Get there early! Copeland and The Invocation are going to be there also! I recommend to check out Copeland but make sure you don't d/l the symphonic orchestra bands songs which are also by another Copeland. :)

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"

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.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.
Album art
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.
