From the picture on the wall
To the bed posts that touched them all
This is where I live
This is where I do my screaming

How do you say
I loved you in so many other ways
This is where I live
This is what I do best

Dreaming with so much ugliness
Waking up to all this beautiful blue
Beautiful you

From the time I walked in
To the point that we're both arguing
This is how I live
This is where I start screaming

How do you say
I've always felt this way
This is where I live
This is what I do best

Dreaming with so much ugliness
Waking up to all this beautiful blue
This beautiful you

Dreaming under all this ugliness
Waking up to all this beautiful blue

Dreaming under all this ugliness
Waking up to all this beautiful blue
Beautiful you

    I have no idea what this song means. I love this song though, it's so pretty. I think she is talking about past girlfriends of the guy she loves by the line "bedpost that touched them all". Maybe they argue and fight some of the time, but they know that if they wil always be together. Her favorite times are waking up, the cuddling, and time spent together.

    This is a beautiful song. I recall when it was released hearing Holly on the radio (and this was a few years ago so my memory isn't perfect)... and she said that this song was written after September 11, 2001 and the theme is living in the aftermath of that. I think she said the chorus was based on seeing so many terrible and ugly images on the news, but then being able to wake up to her new baby everyday and seeing the beautiful side of life. Sort of juxtaposing emotions - i.e. sad/happy, ugly/beautiful, etc.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

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."
