return back home after three months on the road
i know that it's time to piece my puzzled life into an ordinary frame
life goes on but for me it seems to go the other way
nothing worked out for a while then it all just seemed to change

looking hard for the easy way to get away from it
another year has gone by and i feel that i've slept through it all
i'll be gone like the thieve that's on the run
who's got the world in his hands and is trying to get away from everyone he knows

thinking back to a time when i was moving here
leaving it all behind to start again
and it is all these lessons that i haven't learned
one day i will...

searching for you until you ripped my life into another piece
that meant nothing for a while, back then i just thought that way
some feeling changed but i'm better off this way when i'm without you
just because i know whoever is with you is going through the same

thinking back to a time when i was moving here
leaving it all behind to start again
and it is all these lessons that i haven't learned
one day i will... so tell me

when will i find the path that is meant for me
i know that it's out there and it'll always be
for now i can just try to figure it out
what this situation is all about

life goes on and one day it will move on without us
but i'll have my faith, someday i'll move on to something more

    This song describes exactly what I'm going through at the moment. Returning home after my first year at University and feeling like I've wasted the whole year. Made and lost a few friends and gone full circle!

This is one of my favorite songs.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
