Faces I remember,
I still see.
The places and the memories,
hold on to me.
And I can't wait to crawl out of my shell.

Promises you tell me,
In a thousand ways.
Moving on forever,
Living life this way.

And I can't wait to crawl,
I can't wait at all.
I can't wait to crawl.
I can't wait anymore.

Cause if I wait too long,
How am I gonna reach my destination?
And now I know the time has come,
Its all right here, its all so clear to me.

Eyes they open slowly,
its so hard to see.
I've never seen an angel,
but I'm trying to believe.

And I can't wait to crawl,
I can't wait at all.
I can't wait to crawl,
I can't wait anymore,
I can't wait anymore,
I can't wait anymore.

    I remember when the WB used this song for a commerical with all the stars from the primetime shows. Anyways, I think this song is about someone trying to git over a traumatic experience. For example, Faces I remember, I still see. The places and the memories, hold on to me. could be about the person reliving the event in his or her head. And, "And I can't wait to crawl out of my shell" could be about the "shell" that peole create around themselves after a traumatic event. Like a person wouldn't leave his or her for months on end.
    Also, "Eyes they open slowly, its so hard to see" indicates an accident or maybe an assault.

    i think that this song is seriously perfection.

    and if you look at the albumb version, it's about him making a choice for himself, and no ones going to tell him he's wrong, cause it's what he did, and he's asking for help, but on his terms.

    And yeah this was on the wb.

    with all the old shows, like: felicity, dawson's creek, charmed, buffy.

    yeah so i'm a big wb fan, but there's not going to be a wb anymore, so that womps.

    Memory

    The WB's Night of Favorites and Farewells 2006! It was a big tearjerker for television history as. Not only reminds me of when The WB shut down, but of my time in my old elementary school from PK-6 1997-2005. All the years I spent going there all the way to when I finished. That was the last year that my school would have 6th grade

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

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”

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
