All these bruises keep me awake
I guess I'm just too tired to sleep
And God only knows I'm too lost to cry
For kissing liars has kept me true

I'll fall (hold me tight)
But I'll heal (hold me tight)
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

I'll fall (hold me tight)
But I'll heal (hold me tight)
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

He hates so much his love he says
Inside it's dark, I need to smile
He shouts so loud I never hear
That's why the truth's always abused
As I slip into unconsciousness
I never felt so much to blame

I'll fall (hold me tight)
But I'll heal (hold me tight)
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

I'll fall (hold me tight)
But I'll heal (hold me tight)
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

As I slip into unconsciousness
I never felt so much to blame

I'll fall (hold me tight)
But I'll heal (hold me tight)
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

I'll fall (hold me tight)
But I'll heal (hold me tight)
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

I'll fall (another day another night)
But I'll heal
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

I'll fall (another day another night)
But I'll heal
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

I'll fall (another day another night)
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

I'll fall (another day another night)
So hold me tight
Cause I'm so lonely

    Amazing song, suprised there aren't any other comments! I always interpreted it like the woman doesn't approve of the guy she's with really or doesnt like some of the stuff he does. But he doesnt care because he thinks it's the womans fault that he is how he is, but they can't really do without each other despite their indifferences, or they just like being with each other still, not to be too ott? I wonder if that made sense... lol. : )

    The lyrics are of this song actually pretty dark. I am actually this song is about domestic violence, and it tells the thoughts of a woman who's beaten and abused by her partner, but is too scared to leave him. The man screaming "hold me tight" represents him, who is forcing her to "love him" against her will.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.
