So, you’re leaving here for sure
Going where they where jackets there much more.
You know the seasons ain’t the same
I recall the one that you came.

Count the times that I’ll be wrong tonight,
Lets be honest, I won’t even try.

You know just what to expect,
Endless days, endless nights, cold and wet.

Well, no one knows each other there,
Walk on by, walk on by, they just don’t care.

Grasp the shoulder cardinal by the throat,
Burn the letters that you never wrote,
Anywhere you hang your head is not your home.
Nothing here to eat except our own.

Well I don’t have time for problems like these.
I’d get off your back if you got off your knees.

Well i don’t have time for problems like these.
I’d get off your back if you got off your

There you go again,
There you go again,
There you go

Grasp the shoulder cardinal by the throat,
Burn the letters that you never wrote,
Anywhere you hang your head is not your home.
Nothing here to eat except our own.

Nothing here to eat except our own.

    It reminds me of my boyfriend, I know he thinks about me, but can never tell me 'Burn the letters you never wrote'

    When my sister first told me she was moving to Boston, MA I said, "So you're leaving here for sure? Going where they wear jackets much more?".. I wish she wasn't leaving :'(

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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,

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head &gt; 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.
