"Ringing In My Ear" as written by and Adem Sadi Ilhan....
Though I owe you,
I owe you no allegiance
But I still feel guilty for the things that I have done
These past fifteen days

It was easy
To just let it happen
I've been with people who sing gorgeous songs
While you're just ringing in my ear

And filling with envy
Who will you turn to now?
It was your decision I won't hear you
With hating and screaming still ringing in my ear

You threw me away
Away to the jackals
But the jackals they showed me a good time
While you're just ringing in my ear

I toasted marshmallows
While you burned our bridges down
And I looked at landscapes that I had forgotten
Lit up by the fire

And filling with envy
Who will you turn to now?
It was your decision I won't hear you
With hating and screaming still ringing in my ear

It's a sunny September
The colors are bright here
And the birds sing of beautiful places
While you are just ringing in my ear

    -He feels as though he owes her, but he doesn’t really owe her anything compared what she did to him

    But I still feel guilty for the things that I have done
    These past fifteen days

    -He feels that he owes her for the things that he’s done recently

    It was easy
    To just let it happen

    -He thinks that it was easy for her to betray him because she didn’t really care

    I've been with people who sing gorgeous songs
    While you're just ringing in my ear

    -Even though hes surrounded himself with good people, he cant get the thought of what she did to him out of his head, those thoughts are the ringing in his ears

    And filling with envy
    Who will you turn to now?

    -She is wants him back because she has no where else to go
    It was your decision I won't hear you
    With hating and screaming still ringing in my ear

    -But he doesn’t have any sympathy for the decision she made because it was her own fault, she brought it upon herself. He also has no sympathy for her because he still hates what she did and he still carries those thoughts with him

    You threw me away
    Away to the jackals
    But the jackals they showed me a good time
    While you're just ringing in my ear

    -When he was depressed about her betraying him, he resorted to a lot of girls, the jackals. Jackals aren’t a good thing, so I think the women were bad people and were just toying with him, but they showed him a good time…..the whole time he was with other women he was thinking about her and how she betrayed him

    I toasted marshmallows
    While you burned our bridges down

    -Toasting marshmallows is innocent and playful, she burned bridges/his trust by betraying him

    And I looked at landscapes that I had forgotten
    Lit up by the fire

    -The landscapes are the good times that they had, that were lit up/destroyed by the fire/problems she created

    And filling with envy
    Who will you turn to now?
    It was your decision I won't hear you
    With hating and screaming still ringing in my ear

    It's a sunny September
    The colors are bright here
    And the birds sing of beautiful places
    While you are just ringing in my ear

    -He is slowly but surely getting over it, he is thinking more positively, but the thoughts of what she did are still there in the back of his mind

    General CommentThe chords and tune are beautiful, but the lyrics are quite bitter. It's a great take on a break-up scenario that is not covered too often
