Do you know, where you want to go?
I ain't got time for you now.
Do you think, that I'll ever be?
Cause all I ever wanted, so far gone.
And if I had my chance, I'd go along.

You're making me fall down,
I'm falling down again.
I wish you could fall down,
Can you catch me darling,

Do you see, what you do to me?
You ain't got time for him now.
Do you think, that he'll ever be?
Cause all I ever wanted, so far gone.
And if I had my chance, I'd go along.

You're making me fall down,
I'm falling down again.
I wish you could fall down,
Can you catch me darling,

    "Do you know where you wanna go? I ain't got time for you now. Do you think that I'll ever be? 'Cause all I ever wanted so far gone, and if I had my chance I'd go along."

    I think what is being said here is, "Do you know if you want me or not? I'm sick of waiting around, I don't have time for this, and do you think that I'll ever be what you want?" Everything he's ever wanted has just come and gone and never lasted long enough for him to enjoy it, and if he ever did get the chance with this girl, he'd just go along with it, never question it because he wants it to last.

    The chorus is easy, he's simply falling in love with her, and he wishes that she would "fall down" and be in love with him.

    "Do you see what you do to me? You ain't got time for me now."

    He's simply asking her, "Do you see what you put me through? The up and downs, the confusion, and now you don't have time for me?" It was fine when he didn't have time for her because she kept playing with his emotions and feelings. But now she doesn't have any time at all for him, he misses the ups and downs I think, because at least then he was getting some of her attention, though it wasn't great, it was still something to him. And yet still, if he ever got the chance, he'd still go along.

    That's what I think anyway, or kind of think. Love this song!

    I think it's about this guy who likes this girl, who really wants to be with her, but isn't sure if it's gonna work out.

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.

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
