I know, that's just it goes
And you ain't right, for sure
You turned your back on love
For the last time
It won't take much longer now
Time makes me stronger, way
There's nothing more to say

[Chorus]
One day in your life
Said love would remind you
How could you leave it all behind
One day in your life
It's gonna find you
With the tears that left me cry
And baby I'm stronger then before
You gotta lay it on the line
Maybe one day in your life

My love
Did you think I'd break down and cry
This thing we had
It mean the world to me
Guess I wouldn't lie
It won't take much longer now
See time makes me stronger way
And I know you'll be coming 'round some day

[Chorus]

You called me in the midnight hour
With your velvet lies
So many sleepless nights, I wonder
Is it time to say goodbye?
Oh yeah

[Chorus]

One day!

[Chorus]

    This song is so great if you've just broken up with someone, or more specifically had someone break up with you. She's telling her ex-boyfriend that one day in his life, he's gonna look back at his time with her realize that he made a big mistake by letting her go.

    I agree with TrOoBaBiEe. I think it's about that as well. It's bittersweet to me, even though it's an upbeat song it lets us know that the pain is still there. Just like mine. To me she's saying "I hope you ever realize that I truly loved you and you let me go" :(

    I definitely relate to this song, having come out of a pretty bad breakup. I believe this song is about all the other posters have said, a woman telling the man that he gave her up and will regret it...not now, but someday in his life, and he will think how stupid he was to let her go. It's a bittersweet song, but still a power pop ballad that shows that women can raise up from the worst of circumstances and still come out as a strong individual. It makes me happy, sad, and also good to dance to.

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.

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.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
Album art
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.
