One time when you ran from me
I remember it clearly
A year ago and I'm here today
Just like you said that day
So simple in your own way
No doubt that both of us are insane

Do you remember the day we met
Said words I can't forget
So much I think of what you do
Just like you said that day
So simple in your own way
No doubt that both of us are insane

Sometimes it gets instilled
Sometimes it feels too real
and I can say this is the deal
I'd like forever and ever

I'll never love again
Can't you see that I'm in
I'll never know another you
What you do

    The beginning of this song reminds me of some sort of christmas type ballad. I think that might have been the point though. This is a good break up song about the good things in relationships. "I'll never love again... I'll never know another you" sigh Don't we all feel that way at the end of a generally good relationship?

    i always call this the "nintendo song," because the beginning reminds me of an old video game. it's strange how the song is either lamenting a love lost, or trying to persuade that person to come back, but it's so upbeat. i guess it can be happily reflecting on the relationship or its uniqueness. it's an adorable song and it's one of my most favorites.

    I like this song because of the beat and how it can be taken two different ways..iut can be that he just ended a good relationship and he's thinking back on everything that went on. Or that he's in one and he's cherishing the fact..this band is great.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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"

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,

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.

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.
