Friday night and I crashed your party
Saturday night and I crashed your car
Sunday night when you threw me out
Couldn't believe I even got that far
Look out of your bedroom window
And tell me what you see
Who's that standing in the shadows
Oh baby you belong to me, yeah

Place your bets cause I got a good feeling
Hey over there, are you lookin' my way
Electrified like a shock to the system
You walk right through my DNA

If you could just walk for a mile in my shoes
If you don't lose your mind you got no mind to lose

Bang bang gonna shoot you down
I got me a gun but I gotta get a better one
Sweatin' hard, buzzing like a fly
Like a, like a thief with a water-tight alibi
High hopes are sinking like a stone
I swallow my pride but I'm choking on a fishbone
Oh my, I gotta try, so step right up

I'll give you what you want
It's what you need
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah

Head over heels and it's making me nervous
Get on my knees and it's making me worse
There's no way out so I pay lip-service
If this thing is bigger than the both of us

If you could just walk for a mile in my shoes
If you don't lose your mind you got no mind to lose

Bang bang gonna shoot you down
I got me a gun but I gotta get a better one
Sweatin' heart, buzzing like a fly
Like a, like a thief with a water-tight alibi
High hopes are sinking like a stone
I swallow my pride but I'm choking on a fishbone
Oh my, I gotta try, so step right up

I'll give you what you want
It's what you need
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah

Bang bang gonna shoot you down
I got me a gun but I gotta get a better one
Oh my, I gotta try, so step right up

I'll give you what you want
It's what you need
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Magical

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > 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.

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.

Page
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.
