Time flies by, day to day
I start to question decisions made
I see old friends don't understand
What lies ahead already planned
Apprehensive insecurity
Torn between two realities
Stuck in a rut 9 to 5
Scared to death if I'll survive
Can I continue to chase my dreams
Or will it catch up to me
Problems I don't want to face
To disappear without a trace
Is there a way for us to see
What lies ahead, where we will be
Is there a way for us to know
Do we have a choice, do we have control
Feel the heat it's on back
Concerned of what it is I lack
Pressure mounts it's at my heels
Sometimes I think this can't be real
Will I let this drag me down
Am I the only one around
Unable to figure for myself
Which cards to keep from which I'm dealt
Do I stay or should I fold
This game we play is getting old
There comes a time for letting go
Of all the truths you think you know
I want to do what's right for me
But sometimes it's so hard to see
Which path to take, which bond to break
I can't forget my own mistakes
I won't accept mediocrity
I can't go on unless I'm truly being me
And if that means, you don't approve
Too fucking bad my mind is set and I won't move

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

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/
