I can't wait a day
I don't care what you say
Oh yeah, you got to pay
When you hit rock bottom
And you're there to stay

Sometimes late at night
I want to hold you tight
Oh no, you got to pay
Girl, you hit rock bottom
And you're there to stay

Rock bottom
Girl, you know you oughta treat me good
Rock bottom
Oh, you never treat me like you should

Hard times got me down
Good times ain't around
Now I got the mind to say
Girl, you hit rock bottom
And you're there to stay

Rock bottom
Girl, you know you oughta treat me good
Rock bottom
Yeah, you never treat me like you should
Rock bottom
Girl, you know you oughta treat me good
Rock bottom
Yeah, you never treat me like you should
Rock bottom
Rock bottom, ow

    The acoustic part is amazing on its own. it could be a seperate song on it's own like "love theme from kiss." i believe the box set has a demo of the song where the vocals are sung slightly differently

    It's a cool song, but the intro is a blatant Alice Cooper rip (Desperado).

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.

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.
