If the friends are good to me
The white fairy is bending her bow
Shoots into the face of my worries
and out of the two halves breaks
the father of all mirrors

He`s waving at me and I bend
and he`s whispering in my ear

You are the sweetest child of all
I`ll keep you as my own blood
you are the nicest child of all
in me even the evil is good

The curiosity is making my dream longer
the white fairy she sings and she laughs
she made me pregnant violently
and is torturing me through the night
the father of all mirrors

He`s waving at me and I bend
and he`s whispering in my ear

You are the sweetest child of all
I`ll keep you as my own blood
you are the nicest child of all
in me even the evil is good

As I defend myself against the pains of birth,
still being a bitch in the cradle,
watch me while I give birth,
and devour the own afterbirth.

You are the sweetest child of all...

    Ummm, hey... Mr. Wilhelm... Let's stick to the music, okay? This isn't SNL, and Chris Farley is dead. Get over it.

    Actually it's "the most beautiful child of all".. But anyway, I think this song really is the most beautiful song ever! Lyrics are amazing, (though there are too many mistakes here). If it wasn't named Kokain, I guess you could find very many different things there. It could be about a lover who betrayed you. Or about life...

    This translation is awful. I'll try a better one, it will be far from perfect - and yet an improvement. Here we go: "If the friends are well disposed | the Fairy White will arch her bow, | shoots my troubles in the face, | and on both sides the mirror cracks, | the father of all mirrors. || He beckons me, and I reach down, | he whispers softly in my ear: || You are the most beautiful child of all, | I'll keep you as blood of my own blood. | You are the most beautiful child, | In me even evil will be good. || Curiosity prolongs my dream, | the Fairy White, she sings and laughs, | having forced me into expectancy, | and tormenting me throughout the night | is the father of all mirrors. || You are the most beautiful child of all, | I'll keep you as blood of my own blood. | You are the most beautiful child, | In me even evil will be good. || And as I defy the pain of birth, | still whoring in the maternity bed, | I watch myself as I give birth | and devour my own afterbirth. || You are the most beautiful child... "

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
