One thing that I thought of you.
One thing that you'd never do
is happening to me.
It started so well
but I couldn't tell
what's going through your head.
You always had to do
what your friends told you to
so you broke up with me.
Then that other guy
came into your life.
And it wasn't hard to see
that you'd have him over me.
But it's alright.
I'm over you now.
And I'm doing fine
just getting on with my life.
It's alright, it's okay.
It's probobaly better this way.
It's true what they say
" No Pain No Gain".
But like people always do
you had your faults too.
Looks aren't everything.
When trouble came our way
you took that easy way out.
I wanted to end
and still be friends.
But not that time
and not that lie.
I'd rather hear the truth
than listen to another lie.
You turned your back and walked away,
didn't hear what I had to say.
But I have to keep thinking
that tomorrows' another day.
But it's alright.
I'm over you now.
And I'm doing fine
just getting on with my life.
It's alright, it's okay.
It's probobaly better this way.
It's true what they say
" No Pain No Gain".
But it's alright.
I'm over you now.
And I'm doing fine
just getting on with my life.
It's alright, it's okay.
It's probobaly better this way.
It's true what they say
" No Pain No Gain".
But it's alright.
I'm over you now.
And I'm doing fine
just getting on with my life.
It's alright, it's okay.
It's probobaly better this way.
It's true what they say
" No Pain No Gain".

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

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?

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.
