You said you've had enough, I've had it up to here but I'm still standing.
Screaming as you fall, I'm making this point clear but you're not listening.
Apologies are so unusual but it's the usual to make amends.
So why won't you leave me, I just want this to be over.

I need some time to think.
So why won't you leave me?
You're better off with him rather than me.
Don't deny the truth, I've moved on and you're still here.

Understand me.
With your crying eyes, wipe off all your tears 'cause I'm not listening.
Apologies are so unusual but I am comfortable to not be friends.
So why did I abandon, ruin a foundation that we built?

Well I'm not committed to waiting and pleasing.
Make this clear.
So why won't you leave me?
You don't want this to be over.

I just need time to think.
So when will you leave me?
You're better off with him rather than me.

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.

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.
