You come around
To see your boyfriend
You come around
To feel the pain
It was yesterday he tried to use you
But you still go through it

Again you took it away
Again you let yourself stay

I've been around
This lonely place
Lonely place before

You find out
He's been lying to you
You find he had another girl
Still you never
Stand up for yourself
You never stand up to him

He takes it away
Again you let yourself stay
Again you gave it to him
You said it's the last time
He does it again

I've been around
This lonely place
Lonely place before
You got a choice
To leave your place
Your lonely place behind
Be true to yourself
Now and let it go
It's better than you think

    this song is the perfect description of my friend and his gf, hes cheated on her multiple times, told her about every time, and yet she is still like in love with him, and i know it like hurts her to go through that shit, but she still does, shes been goin through it for a year and a half now, and its kinda sad, but thats just my interpretation

    To me, this song is about some asshole that constantly treats his girl like shit, but she is too dependant to actually break up with him. She puts up with it, because being cheated on is still better than being without this guy and feeling lonely.

    This is a great song. I didn't know ska could sound this good. Goldfinger is a ska band, isn't it?

    this song is about a friend of John Feldmann's (gf's singer), whose boyfriend keeps cheating on her and using her. John was mad at her for taking her boyfriend back so many times, and wrote this song. if you don't believe me, read the liner notes from gf's greatest hits. this song reminds me of the clash for some reason...maybe because of the brass?

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.

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,

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
