Te espero sentada en la esquina de siempre
Y más arreglada que si fuera un viernes
Sin ninguna cita hecha previamente
Pero con la plena intuición de verte

Mis ojos no paran de mirar y mirar
El oscuro pedernal de las ideas
Buscando más huecos dentro de este hueco
Buscando una luz en medio de este cielo

Mi cielo, mi cielo
Pobre de mi cielo

Mis manos las guardo porque tengo frío
Y se sienten raras dentro del bolsillo
Ha pasado ya más de una hora y media
No has aparecido, me falló mi instinto

Pero es que mi instinto
No sabe de amores
Pero es que mi instinto
No sabe que

Vivir la vida sin ti
Es algo como morir
Es caminar sin mirar
Es como cantar sin oír
Es hablar sin respirar
Es comer sin digerir
Porque yo descubrí que eres la forma perfecta
La medida exacta justa para mi y es así

Mi cielo, mi cielo
No sabe que

Vivir la vida sin ti
Es algo como morir
Es caminar sin mirar
Es como cantar sin oír
Es hablar sin respirar
Es comer sin digerir
Porque yo descubrí que eres la forma perfecta
La medida exacta justa para mi

(Vivir la vida sin ti)
Y es algo como morir
Es caminar sin mirar
Es como cantar sin sentir
Es hablar sin respirar
Es comer sin digerir
Porque yo descubrí que eres la forma perfecta
La medida exacta justa para mi

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.

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,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
