The sun fell down again last night on my anger
The sun fell down again last night on frustration
And on my spite

And I didn't even cry
I didn't even try to stop it at all
I just stood there and watched it fall

And this is the last song that I should ever sing
Just one more time and I'll shut my mouth forever

    okay... the thing with Mineral is you listen and listen, and you love the song and everything. But one day, it just hits home. Totally out of the blue.

    Just one day, you're mowing the lawn or reading a book or whatever and listening to some song of theirs, and it just strikes you.. oh yeah, this is what was baing said! You get a completely clear, perfect vision of Chris' soul.

    July "happened" to me when I was driving. It's 3AM now, so that's why I'm just typing something so ramble-y, and I don't know if I'll even be able to express what I felt or understood in tha tmoment.

    Have you ever gotten so angry at someone, without the proper reasoning behind it? And then they bite back, and that's when you realize you've been horrible to this person .. whether it be for three seconds or five hours or a whole weekend. So they're telling you how they feel, and you realize they're right, you simply recognize it as the truth... You can't cry. You can't even move.

    I'm not sure if I'm right, anyone else got any ideas?

    This is one of my all time favorite songs. Everything about this song expresses so much feeling and emotion. The words, his voice, the cresendos and decresendos. everything. wonderful.

    I've felt the same way expressed in the song a few times...and I love listening to it. It's so straight forward, but yet kind of complex and more than surface deep at the same time...so awesome. He has a wonderful talent of expressing himself wonderfully through words, without having to use many. Which is what makes it so direct, and radical in my opinion.

    Not to overdue the idea of relating Mineral to Christianity, but there lyrics do reference the Bible a lot and it is necessary (relating a song lyric to its references) to understand the completeness of a song's purpose. So just to expand on this song I want to mention Ephesians 4:26b, "do not let the sun go down on your wrath." He's bitter with himself for allowing his anger, spite, or frustration to continue with someone longer than it should have. He had the opportunity to forgive them, talk to them, or confront the problem but instead he merely soaked in it watching it progress inside of himself.

Album art
Cajun Girl
Little Feat
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”

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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
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.
