She wants it
He doesn't want enough
She dreams it
He dreams in shades of blue
She holds on
He lets go of all they know
He's living
She's dying way too young

(Chorus)
A girl so strong
Broken one by one
Day by day
She runs away
From the ones who really love
A girl so strong
Broken one by one
They say that home is where the heart aches
But in her case
Home is where the heart makes her
The one we love
It's been so long
Since he's seen your face
An image that he can not replace
It's been so long
Since she's been gone
Her love's with us for ever long

She sees him.
He never sees a thing
He breathes it.
She's choking on her own heart

(Chorus)

It's been so long
Since he's seen your face
An image that he can not replace
It's been so long
Since she's been gone
Her love's with us for ever long

(Chorus)

    Yeah...I really like this song. I love how keepsake has like...different kinds of music and they're all good. I don't know..like comparing this to 'sleep' to 'papercuts and broken hearts'...they're all so different but all incredibly awesome. But anyways, back to the song...I don't think I understand all of it together...but I think it's the kind of song where most people can pull peices from it and totally relate to it. I agree with onlyindreams...i also like "shes choking on her own heart.." Yea..so dude did I like totally miss them go on tour??? I've been checking for like a year to see about shows and they're never on tour..and then just the other day I saw they had a show in cali and i was like ARGGG...get to NY yo. lol well yah...this comment is overly long and pointless. I'll end- good band. :o)

    This song is one of the best on the End of Sound, and even though they cut out a lot of screaming on that record, if this song had some background screaming it would be so amazing. Not saying its not as it is, but it would've made it ten times better.

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"

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/

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.

Amazing
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.
Album art
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.
