Don't come back cryin' to me
Tellin' me, your gonna be
That man you've always wanted to be
Well I can see right through those eyes
Your just like them guys
Who cheat on ladies and break their hearts
Well I ain't takin' ya back, we're better apart
So your best bet is to leave
And find some other girl you can decieve
Maybe she ain't like me
But you'll be left and better off is where I'll be

Don't you come around here, don't show your face
I'm through with you, that's the case
You think it's as easy as 1, 2, 3
To just come back and lie to me
Don't you come around here, you better be gone
So get out of my face and get off my lawn
Don't come around here no more
So leave and shut the door

Don't come back and say you've changed
Baby we already played this game
So don't come over askin' for just one more chance
There ain't no way in hell iI'll take you back
If your really sorry, don't show your face
And if your sorry you wouldn't have done it in the first place
My friends say I'll miss you
The way we used to talk and the way I'd kiss you
I'm tryin as hard as I can
To forget about you and find another man
So we played the game and I guess we lost
You cheated on me and had to pay the cost
Your gonna be the one who's cryin'
And I'm gonna be the one who's tryin'
To move on

Don't you come around here, don't show your face
I'm through with you, that's the case
You think it's as easy as 1, 2, 3
To just come back and lie to me
Don't you come around here, you better be gone
So get out of my face and get off my lawn
Don't come around here no more
So leave and shut the door

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

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.
