You tried to do me
You tried to do me
You tried to do me (But see baby)
I am not the one (I am not the one baby)

You tried to do me (You tried to do me)
You tried to do me
You tried to do me
But I am not the one

Why you want to live so foul?
You know sweatin', one for some, is not my style
I'm the type to wine and dine in the candlelight
'Cause just one night could be just so right
Your first riff, is that I'm never home
And you're sick and tired of being alone
But baby I got work to do
And ain't no-one gonna stop me from being Pu'
I buy you rings and things and all that good stuff
But you still beefin' that that is not enough
Let's sit down and discuss it
Baby bust it
You check my beeper when I'm still sleepin'
When I get out of cars you're out your window peepin'
I think the best thing for you and me
Is just to play like John Lennon and 'Let It Be'
You tried to do me

You tried to do me
You tried to do me
You tried to do me (But see baby)
I am not the one (I am not the one)

You tried to do me (You tried to do me)
You tried to do me
You tried to do me
But I am not the one

Ay bust it
I would sing the song called just be my lady
But you're the type of girl who likes to act real shady
And rain on the brain like a hurricane
Throw rhythm on a dame, 'cause I know the game
You see, I'm just a rapper and nothing's free so
"Why are you watchin' me?"
Well honey can I get some privacy?
You say cool, then you try to flip
But you forgot to put the Gucci bag upon your hip
You knew me, you blew me, others would pursue me
The question that I ask is why you, tryin' to do me?
Make like a ship and just float on (Float on)
I'm not the type of brother that you can just gig on
I know the time honey, there it is plain to see
You're tryin' to do me

You tried to do me
You tried to do me
You tried to do me (But see baby)
I am not the one (I am not the one)

You tried to do me
You tried to do me
You tried to do me
But I am not the one

Now see baby, I don't know why you tryin' to flip and all of that
'Cause I'm out here tryin' to do my thing
And get these papes in today's society,
You know what I'm sayin'?
I'm tryin' to make things a little better
But if you want to make matters worse
Let me say this first
There's no need for you to try to do me

You tried to do me
You tried to do me
You tried to do me (But see baby)
I am not the one (I am not the one)

You tried to do me
You tried to do me
You tried to do me
But I am not the one

And now check it, I'mma end it like this
Now good times come, honey good times go
I think this is somethin' that you really oughta know
The name of the game is to maintain
'Cause when you lose someone you love, then you feel pain
It's up to you to decide if the love was worth losin'
To me you're not the everyday, Tina, Tammy, Susan
Why can't you, understand?
Instead of tryin' to run the flim-flam on the grand
Baby, do whatever is clever
'Cause we can make this last, forever and ever
With joy there's pain
But don't you worry about the Puba Maxwell, 'cause I can stand the rain
Shoo-be-doo, this is what you oughta do
Think of all the things that I just told you
Remember all the times when I used to hold you and say
We can last through eternity
But don't ever try to do me

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Dreamwalker
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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
