(Okay, okay we got a wee special surprise for ya. We just met a couple of friends down in London, down here. I?d like you to welcome on stage Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford from Squeeze. Yey!!)

I feel like I?m pounding on a big door
No one can hear me knocking
I feel like I?m falling flat to the floor
No one can catch me from falling

The hour glass has no more grains of sand
My watch has stopped no more turning hands
The crew have abandoned the ship
The lights are on but no one is in

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

I feel like I am calling on the telephone
No one can hear the ringing
I feel like I?m running up a steep hill
No one can stop me from running

The hourglass has no more grains of sand
My watch has stopped no more turning hands
The little hand shakes it?s fist
The face is hanging out on a spring

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

The hour glass has no more grains of sand
Little red grains of sand
My watch has stopped no more turning hands
Little green neon hands

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Feels like I?m calling back to the shore
No one can hear me calling
Feels like I?m falling back to the floor
No one can catch me from falling

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

(Thank you very 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.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
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.
