C'est le soir et le vent s'est levé
Dans les ruelles où la poussière vole
Aïe, c'est l'heure où vont danser
Ceux que la chaleur ne peut laisser

C'est un endroit où on voit
Courir dans les veines, cette chaleur

Et Marie aiguise son regard
Elle a vu ce qui vient de nulle part
Elle a crispé la main sur la lame
Attention à la blessure, madame

Ooh, mais on n'sent pas la douleur
Sinon, dans les cœurs, cette chaleur

C'est ce démon dans son sang à elle
Qui a rongé lentement ses ailes
Aïe, c'est dans le ventre, là
Marie sait ce qui arrivera
Dans cet endroit où on laisse aller

Elle se lève et prend
Son arme si blanche
C'est pour crever le corps
De ce fils de pute si blanc
Pendant qu'il en est encore temps
Allez, respire bien, avance
Encore, mais avance

Il n'sentira pas la douleur
Peut-être la peur, cette chaleur

Sous les draps trop blancs
L'auréole grandit, c'est le sang
Et Marie a les yeux qui brillent
Elle part sur les rails des tramways
Elle court, légère, légère
Et la pluie lave ses mains
Et la pluie lave les rues
Elle est propre enfin
Elle est propre enfin
Cette chaleur

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
