In my neighborhood,
When shots go off,
No one bothers.
A POP, and a reply POP, and no reply

Dinosaurs on the quilt I wore
With a girl.
Such a classic girl,
Such a classic girl,
Such a classic girl

Gives her man great ideas.
Hears you tell your friends,
Hey man, listen to my great idea!
It's true I am a villain
When you fall ill,
that's probably because

Men never can be.
Not like a girl.
A classic girl,
Such a classic girl

They may say, Those were the days,,
But in a way,
You know for us these are the days.
Yes, for us these are the days

And you know you're my girl!
Such a classic girl,
Such a classic girl

Yeah for us these are the days

    I know this is not the best known JA song, but I really can just dig on this anytime anywhere. It reminds me of a woman I was in love with who came just close enough to me to break my heart slowly and sweetly. How lame is that?

    I got this album when it first came out..before they temporarily banned the cover art...and although I was probably a sophomore in high school, I never had been in love. I swear to god, that is how it felt 3 years later when I finally did. This is the best musical example of falling in love with an angel I have ever heard.

    The whole mood of this song is so beautiful. I can't stop myself from thinking that Perry Farrell is actually singing about a perfect girl. Ever since hearing this I have been looking for a someone I could call a classic girl.

    This is such a cool song. It is about Casey Niccoli.

    I love this line...

    They may say, \"Those were the days...,\" but in a way, you know for us these are the days

    That line actually made me think about life differently.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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.

Magical
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.
