it's been so long since you've been here, and i'm dying is there something you would like to say? just drop the present on the shelf, by the flowers and make the feeling go away looking back i can't recall, who was listening when i used to walk the streets at night like a bird that used to sing, i was flying i was happy all the time, and it's hard to look back better days and different ways i can't explain another song to sing it all was simplified don't know what it's about, what have i learned to live without? it takes a day to live a life i can't believe the way the world is so different look what the lines in my face have made living in my bed i'm right next to the road the one that goes the other way, takes me to a different place did you know, that i was just as young as you i had a job, a home, a family, and a car did you say that yesterday or just right now? you'll never know the feeling of my bleeding heart did you say that yesterday or just right now? you'll never know the feeling of my bleeding heart

    This song touches me in more than a million ways possible. I forgot how much I love NUFAN's lyrics.

    I totally agree with rbfboy212 that its about someone who he is dying, and i think he was pretty young. "Did you know i was just as young as you" (before the disease started). He doesnt want to die, but its inevitable, he was so happy, and now he lies helplessly in his bed and watches his friends saying goodbye. I think you're totally wrong Nimbus, its not from the point of view of the visitor but from the person in bed, and i really want to say that he is not mean or anything. "I'm dying, is there something you would like to say?" I'm thinking what i would do if someone is really saying this to me, its too cruel to imagine. "Make the feeling go away", the feeling that he is dying without beeing able to see some of the things he wanted to see. He's long dead, trapped in his bed. This songs shows me what is possible with words, i mean the lyrics perfectly catch the situation, snd the music just fits. Just sad, one one the best songs possible.

    This song is about a dying man. It is a great song with a lot of feeling. THe man is reminiscing about when he was young and would "walk the streets." The man is in pain because of his "bleeding heart" which can be describing the illnes, or he maay be just dying of loneliness. and his heart longs to be young again.

    I picture this song about a person with dimensia or something like it. "did you say that yesterday or just right now" and "it takes a day to live a life" may be talking about this. kind of sad, but one of my fav nufan songs

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.

Page
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.
Album art
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.
