Hell is where you put me
And hell is where you're going to
Until the next life
I say this twisted prayer for you
May the torment you put out
Come back around twice multiplied.
Even though you let me go
I've got to let you know
I'd cry if you died.

The past is where you see me
The past is what will bring you down
Destiny a moon eclipsed
In the shadows all is darkness now
May the evil in your heart
Be your one and only friend for life
You pretend I don't exist
I have to let you know
I'd cry if you died
Somewhere special
Voices form words

And the words have meaning
So I reach out for someone new
And I wonder

Will it ever be alright
(then I hear you secret radio
Signaling that its time to go)
Hell is where you put me
And hell is where well meet again
I will be waiting

To repeat a scene that never ends
Molten pools of mockery
Reflect a million sleepless nights
Even though you acted low
I've got to let you know
I'd cry if you died

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
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.

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.

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.
