Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh

What ever happened to the teenage dream?

Surprise, surprise
The boys are home
My guardian angel's run down my telephone
The heats on, mister
Can't you hear them scream?
What ever happened to the teenage dream?

The curfew comes at the crack of night
The sad old wino aches to dissipate the fright
The jet jump jiver speeds past in his machine, but
What ever happened to the teenage dream?

A broken god from a musty world
Sweetly mouth touched him on its spur
His prison guards were very hard to clean, but

What ever happened to the teenage dream? (Oh)

Do it, do it, do it to me, babe
Do it to me babe

What ever happened to the teenage dream?

The Wizard of Oz
And the bums and thieves
Ruled my girl
With Teutonic teeth
But all was lost
When her mouth turned green
What ever happened to the teenage dream?

Silver surfer
And the ragged kid
Are all sad and rusted, boy, they don't have a gift
Believe me Pope Paul, my toes are clean
What ever happened to the teenage dream?

Black is black
And white is white
Some go to heaven And some get it night
The bomb was a brute
But his winged screams
What ever happened to the teenage dream? (Yeah)


Haha (okay, yeah we'll start there)
I'm talking teenage to you woman, yeah
I'm talking to you
Ow, there you go
Play them blues to me, boy
Ay, yeah-yeah

Ride it off

The Last Dance
Within Temptation
@[Kahiara:35260] Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
