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

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

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.
