Every little word
With every lesson learned
I think I know why hearts are made of stone
Every little pain
Fans a bitter flame
Nothing stops me loving you

Can't you see that we belong
Oh how I want it to be
So tell me do you feel the way I feel

Baby like the rose
Oh darling you put colour in my life
Baby take my heart forever
Cause I don't wanna be afraid
No no

Turn another page
The story will never fade
Sleep with thoughts of you until daylight
And when you're far away
Forever love will stay
Keep this loving feeling deep inside

Can't you see that we belong
Oh how I want it to be
So tell me do you I feel the way I feel

Cos you're the colour in my life

    I take it not many people have heard this one, either that, or they can't be bothered to post for it. I think this is a true love-anthem wanna'be - it's the perfect mix between happiness and sorrow. Anyone that hasn't heard it, or maybe doesn't even like B*Witched ... lend it your ears, I guarantee it's worth it. Regards

    For a while this used to be one of my very favorite songs. I think it was because it almost exactly related to a story I was writing.. but now.. it kind of has a different meaning. I gave it another listen, and it's still good. I love it when songs I used to like, have a different meaning when I get around to listening to them again. Very interesting.

    Like the rose, oh darling/ You put color in my life/Baby take my heart forever/Cause I don't wanna be afraid/Oh, no, no

    Sweet song.

    It's a good song. Whoever posted the lyrics needs to edit them, though...

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
