The night is on and on
Your head rolling away
I catch it when it falls
And keep beneath my breath
So what have we become
More than a skin and bones
Oh what could beat this love
Exepte heroin

This is when we awake
This is where we don't ache

I see the sun
But it's never quite as close
As the only one and I
I can hardly wait

Oh give me sweet, sweet song
Oh give me what you take
Oh give me all that sleeps inside you
Give me what never awakes
So what have we become
More than a skin and bones
And when do we come down
I don't care at all

This is when we awake
This is where we don't ache

I see the sun
It's never quite as close
As the only one and I
I can hardly wait
I see the sun
It's never quite as close
As the only one and I
I can hardly wait

    I think this song is quite clear. It's about a night between two lovers. Their love is so strong that nothing can beat it "Oh, what could beat this love It's so parallel". It gives them wings "This is when we awake This is where we don't ache", "So what have we become More than a skin and bones And when do we come down I don't care anymore"

    Sorry but beg to differ praito. Its clearly about amphetamine. "the night is on and on" no sleep on amphetamin, and what do people that uses this drug end up like... skin and bone. The lyrics above is also incorrect, he sings "what can beat this love, except heroin" (not " its so parallel" as the last words). The rest of the lyrics is also full of references to this drug, few examples: "this is when we awake", "when we dont ache", "oh, give me what u take", "when do we come down, i dont care anymore". You can also find references to amphetamin in the last lyric line on "salt" wich also figures on the brilliant first album "Industrial Silence" album. Sivert sings "this is the bright amphetamin skye".

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.

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.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
