I'm so sorry baby
I was the one who hesitated
And I know how much you suffered
And how long you must have waited
But now both my eyes are open
And I can truly see
And I'm as sorry as I can be
Can you forgive me darling
Can you forgive me babe

I must have been crazy
My little heart must have been leakin'
I admit it babe
I admit
I was the first to weaken
But I love you oh so much
And it ain't no doubt
You know what I'm talking about
Can you ever forgive me baby
Can you ever forgive me babe

'Cause I just want a little bit, little bit
Honey I don't need a lot
I just want a little bit, little bit
Of what you got

I just want a little, baby
Honey I don't need a lot
I just want a little bit, little bit
Of what you got

I'm so sorry babe
I was the one who hesitated
I know how long you suffered
And how long you must have waited

But now both my eyes are open
And I can finally see
And I'm sorry as I can be
Can you forgive me darling
Can you forgive me babe

'Cause I just want a little bit, little bit
Honey I don't need a lot
I just want a little bit, little bit
Of what you got

A little bit, a little bit
Honey I don't need a lot
Just a little bit
A little bit of what you got

A little bit, little bit
Just a little bit, little bit
I say just a little bit, little bit
Of what you got

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.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
