Why do you smile like that, when you look at me?
When you know I can't have you
Why do your glances seem like advances?
Is it just me? Man I think you’re going crazy

It aches in my heart
With my friends I'm always acting so cool
But I would SELL OUT
If only to be closer to you
Cause there's nothing I can do...

I can't get you out of my thoughts
Or out of my heart and I know I'm in love with you baby
Everything I do, leads me back to you
You got to know that you're driving me crazy

Look at me girl, I'm a fool, I make you smile
But I know I can't have you
And I stare at the stars, wishing you weren't so far
From my arms, not alone
But I'm sick ofbeing lonely

I try to love someone else
And everyday I try to be true
It only make me feel worse
Cause all I do is think about you
And there's nothing I can do

I can't get you out of my thoughts
Or out of my heart and I know I'm in love with you baby
Everything I do, leads me back to you
You got to know that you're driving me crazy

I can't get you out of my thoughts
Or out of my heart and I know I'm in love with you baby
Everything I do, leads me back to you
You got to know that you're driving me crazy

Ahhh...

I can't get you out of my thoughts
Or out of my heart and I know I'm in love with you baby
Everything I do, leads me back to you
You got to know that you're driving me...

I can't get you out of my thoughts, or out of my heart,
And I know I'm in love with you baby,
Everything I do, leads me back to you,
Leads me back to you, leads me back to you, leads me back to you

I can't get you out of my thoughts
Or out of my heart and I know I'm in love with you baby
Everything I do, leads me back to you

Leads me back to you... (4x)
You... (2x)

    A song we all can relate to, to care and love someone who means so much to you, but never really know if they feel the same way you do. To know you make this person smile, but that, that's all you'll ever really get in return, and nothing more.

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”

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.

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.

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.
