These aren't my words, they're just my feelings.
There are no sounds that I can hear.
There are no forms for me to touch.
There are no colours that I can see.

The only sound is distant thunder.
A tempest rages so far away from me.
I walked for miles and started running
Towards the sound and storm, where you might find me.
Towards the sound and storm, where you might find me.

I ran until I had the feeling
that the tempest I had heard surrounded me.
And here my heart, so filled with loving
Cried out and told the wonder that you are.

I tell myself, I keep repeating
That your ways are bringing you to me.
And I tell myself, though nothing changes,
That your ways are bringing you to me.

And I tell myself, through tears of anguish
That your ways are bringing you to me,
That I will find my true salvation,
That these ways of mine are bringing you to me.

Here lies my heart so filled with loving
Crying out the wonders that I've felt.
Here I will find my true salvation
That my ways are bringing you to me.

And I tell myself, I keep repeating
That these ways of mine are bringing you to me.

    This song was actually created as a cover of a VNV Nation song by the same title ['Tempest']. The lyrics have been altered quite a bit.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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 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.
