I've lost, and don't remember what I saw in you
Your charms have become less charming
Your sweetness decreases everyday
My dear darling, I've forgotten what I saw in you.

Now I'm lost, I don't know a gentle way to say
That our life together is over and its best that you find someone new
Because my darling, I've forgotten what I saw in you.

I seem to recall some vague memory of feeling happy, when we were young and in love.
But that was a long time ago.
Now I'm lost, Never in a million years what I have dreamt that about you I'd become indifferent.
But sweetheart, incredibly it's true, that your cutie pie has forgotten what he saw in you.

Please don't think that I'm being impulsive or careless
And that I'm not miserable too, but I just can't continue this lie I'm lost.
I wish this had a happy ending
I wish there was something I could do
But, my darling, I've forgotten what I saw in you.
I've forgotten what I saw in you.

    "That your cutie pie has forgotten what he saw in you"

    in the song, i definitely hear "she"

    this song is the wife's story, as told by the wife. "you feel you must go, don't go!", the next song in the album, is the husband's response.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Mental Istid
Ebba Grön
This is one of my favorite songs. https://fnfgo.io

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
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.
