I can tell by the weight of your words, that this is over. All the "should've but could'ves" can no longer be. This is the second daeth in the exquisite art of forgetting. And I promise. And I promise this to you I'll burn this evotion clean filling every hole in my heart. All of these melancholy moments can sometimes sink. Everything you were is fiction. Everything youa re is fiction and if you see the chin downm tongue tied this is all I have to offer. I thought I'd better be asking. This is my last laugh in this place of dying. And for you, this is the last goodbye yo'll ever here. It's not suppose to end like this.

    not many people re talking about the 'when forever comes crashing album', but in my opinion i'd say its one of their best. This track in particular is pretty representive of the whole album, the production is distorted to give it a 'messed up' feel, and the song writing too gives that feeling, the way it changes paces, through slow emotional parts, to fast agressive parts. I would be cool if more people would comment on WFCC, just to see what people think of the record.

    "Everything youa re is fiction and if you see the chin downm tongue tied this is all I have to offer. I thought I'd better be asking. " Actual lyrics: "Everything you are is fiction; and if you see me chin down and tongue tied, this is all I have to offer. I thought I'd never be asking."

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/
Album art
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.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.
