Getting what I wanna be, is getting every one away from me
Looking right, I look around and see that everyone is seeing sound
Get away you looked at me and it was everything it should have been
Feeling sick and wanna die, I talk my shit and then I say goodbye
If I could

What I can't be is everyone
And in my way has come undone
If I say
If I say
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
And walk away

Get like me is every thing I wanna say
Barricaded by my own delay

Getting back would be a lie, cause every thing I do is hindered by
The way I talk and who I am, the way I think about this fucking band
Anyway I wanna know, what we've really got and where we go
I feel alive but in the way, is every single thing I wanna say
If I could

What I can't be is everyone
And in my way has come undone

If I say
If I say
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
And walk away

Get like me is every thing I wanna say
Barricaded by my own delay

I can't be this every thing is pain
I can't see this every single day
I can't be this every thing is pain
I can't see this every single day

Barricaded, barricaded
Barricaded, barricaded
Barricaded, barricaded
Barricaded, barricaded

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
