Waiting my life for the sunshine
All of my cloudy days
You were just a prayer away
Okay Thanks for your patience
I been Dodging demons that didn't seem too dangerous
They were wearing masks and I couldn't see they faces
Things seem to disappear a tricky Situation
The idiot box got a block on people's agents
And them pokes don't seem the safest
Riding down freedom parkway
The irony
Cop pulls us over and I'm seeing how he eyeing we
So I watch his hands silently
Knowing than he could be stupid and react violently
I been sitting back bearing witness to the world
She been selling ass call it fitness to the girls
Its trippy And I know It
Once you take the lens off
The vision isn't blurry
Get a chance don't blow it
But Folks get an inch and make decisions In a hurry
I was back and forth on the plane
Tryna figure it out
Should i leave it or not
I done seasoned the pot
Halfway on the stove
Do you feel it or not
I can carry the load
If you believe it or not
And Ain't no reason to stop
And cant be sleep on the clock
Thankful lessons
Thank you for the stressing
That I didn't have to go thru if I just paid attention
Admitting my flaws that we often hate to mention
Wont make that mistake again
I'm spreading out my eggs
That one basket
Collapsed and I been on the fringe
A sudden death for the win can take you off the hinge
Roller coaster rides as you watch your mind bend
Trauma that you gotta handle if you wanna swim
Disappointment thru the years that I gotta get over
It's really still family
When we all become sober
I've been off of social media
Scrolling thru expedia
Planning out the whole thing
Dodging what they feeding us
I've been getting greedy
With my time and experience
I've been getting greedy with my time

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"

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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,
