When I wake up, in the morning
And I turn around and you're not there
Oh it hurts to know you're still so far away
Though I know deep inside you still care
And I want you, ooh, really want you
Oh, anyway and anyhow
I've waited such a long time for your sweet love
And I need you back home with me now
'cause it's not enough to say that you love me
And it's not enough to say that you care
And it's not enough when you say that you need me
If I wake up and still you're not there
And it's not enough to say that you love me
It's not enough to say that you care
And it's not enough when you say that you need me
If I wake up and still you're not there
Oh do you care?
Oh, please believe me, it's not easy
When you're so many miles from home
Oh I need you here to hold and comfort me
I'm so tired of being alone
'cause it's not enough to say that you love me
And it's not enough to say that you care
And it's not enough when you say that you need me
If I wake up and still you're not there
You gotta try to understand
That a woman like me just needs a man to love
(oh, yes she does)
I know you love me loud and clear but if you're not here
It's not enough, you know...
It's not enough to say that you love me
And it's not enough to say that you care
And it's not enough to say that you need me
If I wake up and still you're not there
It's not enough to say that you love me
It's not enough to say that you care
And it's not enough when you say that you need me
If I wake up and still you're not there
If I wake up and still you're not there, oh
Oh no, no, no, it's not enough
Oh no, no, no, it's not enough

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.
