Time, you needed time out of the mainstream
Out on your only
Alone to find yourself somehow

So I'm a bit surprised to see you lately
Beside a brand new baby
But if it makes you happy now

I guess that's great
I guess you're not mine
Brand new baby beside you now, oh yeah

I guess that's great
You don't see me cryin'
And there's nobody to slow you down, oh yeah

If you're feeling sorry, try to contain it
You don't need to save me
Don't waste your pity anyhow

And you might like to believe I'm devastated
To see you with your brand new baby
Well if it makes you happy now

I guess that's great
I guess you're not mine
Brand new baby beside you now, oh yeah

I guess that's great
You don't see me cryin'
And there's nobody to slow you down

Seen you with your brand new baby
Sure it fazes me just to hear you laughing
Makes me just a little crazy but I guess it's a great thing
If it makes you happy now.

    I think that this song is about someone breaking up with someone, and the reason they broke up is because the other person didn't want a relationship, and now they see them in another happy relationship and are just a bit upset that it worked out with another person and not them, yet they're still in love with them and just glad they're happy (if u can understand that-hehe)

    Looks like someone can dish it out but can't take it... and way to get back at him five years later, that'll really put him in his place.

    That said, your interpretation is spot on.

    yeah its about seeing your ex so much happier and better off without you. and hes like sort of (slightly) in denial about being okay with it. and its obviously not easy to cope. the line 'i guess your not mine' .. makes me wonder if the ex in this situation maybe left the door open to possibilities with the guy. like 'oh i guess you didnt want me after all' .. cause people can mislead you into thinking theirs hope in the future, just to ease the rejection.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts.

Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.

Little Feat
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”

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
