Oh, September girl, I am so scared today
Already 28 and still haven't saved the world
Woke up this morning to nothing I recognized
Everything changed and I never saw it coming
Now there are 5 billion disappointed souls scrapping around in my disappointed mind

And for the first time in my life I am afraid of changing because everything's changing without me

Oh September girl I am so scared for you
You finally decided to live on without me
Now I am forced to just swallow this heart for you to become the girl you already are
Now there are five billion disappointed souls that'll just have to wait...
'cause I only dream for you

Maybe it's time for me to do
The thing that I meant to do
'Cause your getting older and I'm getting older and even us good people die
The gifted never stop seeing the world for the first time
The good ones grow older, the poor ones grow older, the great ones are never forgotten.

    I love these lyrics. I dont know that my interpretation is correct but I take it as someone reflecting upon the person they once were. I can relate....which is why I listen to it so much

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.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
