I pace the length of my unmade room
In times of change
My bags are packed,
Guess I'm leaving the womb
Into the rain

We never found
A place to hide
Some peace of mind
God knows we tried

Toes in the sand,
The seductive sway
Ooh, nothing better, babe
Across the bay
Sarasota Way
We held together

We never found
A place to hide
Some peace of mind
God knows we tried, yeah

So we walk down to Memorial Beach
Where things began
Honey days and nights without sleep
Lost in the sand

We never found a place to hide
Some peace of mind
God knows we tried, yeah

    it seems to be the searching for a place to belong to ... a place where we can forget pain and find some kind of peace of mind. i wonder what 'memorial beach' is... So we walk down to Memorial Beach is for 'so we turn to past?'

    In the 1994 concert in Johannesburg, Morten says that "This is a song to get married or divorced to" I see it as more of the "Divorced part, that they are breaking up or on the verge and he is trying to get some of the good times back.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.
