No hace mucho que leí tu carta
Y, sin fuerzas para contestar
Mil pedazos al viento nos separan
Pondré casa en un país
Lejano para olvidar
Este miedo hacia ti, este miedo hacia ti
Y no hace mucho que rompí
Tu recuerdo pensando
Acabar de una vez

Pero el tiempo y la distancia
No son todo para mí
Siempre hay algo que me hace volver
Siempre he escuchado, y ya no te creo
¿Por qué no te entiendo?
¿Por qué estás tan lejos?
Siempre he escuchado, y ya no te creo
¿Por qué no te entiendo?
¿Por qué estás tan lejos?

Sé que siempre he sido así
Y que no tengo remedio
Ni lo quiero tener
Pero ni el miedo ni tu cartas
Lo son todo para mí
Quizás otra vez te echaré la culpa a ti
Siempre he escuchado, y ya no te creo
¿Por qué no te entiendo?
¿Por qué estás tan lejos?
Siempre he escuchado, y ya no te creo
¿Por qué no te entiendo?
¿Por qué estás tan lejos?

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
