this space starts out empty, and i know it can't hurt more than it already does, and it all falls down around me and hits me in the face and falls on to the ground. I wish that I could understand, why i'm so upset to see these things i'll never have. My hands shake with anger, but my eyes fill up with tears, taste like salt. And it's hard to get up, to hard to pick myself up off the ground, laughing at me, if I could, wondering by myself, if I could. (I was lost at sea, and you let me drown) To walk for miles, and let the rain soak me until smile. It's getting late but I don't mind, i'm holding onto hands as drenched as mine, and for the first time in my life I want to cry and laugh at the same time. Because I'm happy, this space has been filled by her (how could you say no, you should've come over and kissed me)

    This was the first song that really caught my attention from this amazing band. The lyrics hit close to home and are therefore very important to me. I really like the opening drumline and then the vocals and band that blends right into it making it a classic example of what good emotion should sound like. Somewhere along the middle of the song there is a breakdown in which two guitars are aligned to make a clean riff that carries out a heavier climax to end the song. Ive never really heard another band perfect this so well and with such emotion. The lyrics are unbelievably good and this is why penfold is truly my favorite band out there and very underrated at that. The best kept secret for sure. June partly why.

    I kind of found Penfold by accident, and I'm so glad I did. This song is so beautiful. I love these lyrics, mostly because I can relate to them. My favorite line is "I wish that I could understand, why i'm so upset to see these things i'll never have". So sad, but so true.

    "i'm holding onto hands as drenched as mine, and for the first time in my life I want to cry and laugh at the same time. Because I'm happy, this space has been filled by her" ahh its so beautiful. to me this song is about losing someone you love and things not going so great, but knowing that the person you love so much is going through the same thing gives you this amazing connection, but it makes you love them so much more..

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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”

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 think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
