You never told me
What was wrong or what was right
You never told me
Why you couldn't sleep at night
I know you've heard this before
But I'll say it once more
You've done all you can
And you can't do any more
But that's alright
'Cause I'll just wait and see
Till you realize
You never told me

You never told me
You never you never
You never told me

And I know that things have changed
As I know they always do
And I know we're not the same
To think we were I was a fool
But I never thought I'd see
Even in my darkest dream
'Cause full circle will remain
The most unkindest cut of all

You never told me
Why you were never around
You never told me
Why you were so popular in town
I know that it's true
That the damage is done
That you wasted my time
While you were out having fun
But that's alright
'Cause I'll just wait and see
That you realize
You never told me

But you left me every sign
So obvious for all to see
But I turned and looked away
'Cause I could not bare the thought
So I shifted all the blame
So it didn't hurt so much
Now the weight is crushing me
I've got to rise and push it off

You never told me
Why you left and went away
You never told me
That this would happen to me today
I know now that you're gone
I'm feeling so good
I always thought you'd leave
But never knew you would
But that's alright
'Cause I'll just wait and see
That you realize
You never told me

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.
