Do you remember that day?
I said I loved you but now everything has changed
Thought you were off on holidays
Yeah, but I saw you in town laughing with what’s his name

Do you remember that day?
I held your hands and we danced along with Sugar Ray
Do you remember that place?
We looked out over the and sand over the land and waves
But what’s his name?

Do you remember that day?
We drove on into town to witness Rhubarb play
Do you remember our first date?
You said ‘hello’ and I smiled, but now I’m on my way
But what’s his name?

You’re beautiful, yeah you’re a babe
But I am never coming back
The principles, the tears, the pain
Yeah, you will never see me back
I feel a loss, I feel ashamed
For all the things that could have been
My love remains, pulse in my veins, but the fact remains
That you lied to me

Breathe and feel the morning and the sorrow, don’t you?
Breathe and feel the morning and the sorrow, don’t you?

Breathe and feel the morning and the sorrow, don’t you?
Breathe and feel the morning and the sorrow, don’t you?

    This is about breaking up and blaming it on yourself (thats where the 60% comes from). He says that he is moving away from her, and that he will always feel regret, even though he was lied to; he blames it on himself

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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,

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.
