Now you think you know what to do
And things are coming back to you
Don't tell me it's hard to see
It'll work out right
All you need is five minutes away
Your turning every stone today
Don't tell me it's hard to see
It'll work out right
I can't believe you lied to me
There's no use trying to explain
And every time you cross that line
Dissolving everything away
Now you think you know what to do
There's always something else to prove
Don't tell me it's hard to see it'll work out right
Just in time for somebody to say
I'll leave it here for you it's ok
Don't tell me it's hard to see it'll work out right
I can't believe you lied to me
There's no use trying to explain
And every time you cross that line
Dissolving everything away

    This is a pretty cool song, as far as meaning goes, I'm not too sure, maybe someone is making a big deal out of something when it is obvious that it's gonna work out and they are just trying to be dramatic. That's just a thought, let me know what you guys think.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

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.
Album art
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.
