I'm so tall, can't get over me
I'm so low, can't get under me
I must be all these things
For I just threw out the love of my dreams

He's in my eyes
He is in my ears
He's in my blood
He is in my tears
I breathe love and see him every day
Even though my love is a world away

Oh, he's got me wondering
My righteousness is crumbling

Never before have I felt this way
I know what is right, but want for him to stay
I must be made of steel
For I just threw out the love of my dreams

He's in my eyes
He is in my ears
He's in my blood
He is in my tears
I breathe love and see him every day
Even though my love is a world away

Oh, he's got me wondering
My righteousness is crumbling

Oh, he's got me wondering
My righteousness is crumbling

And I see him every day
Even though my love is a world away

He's in my eyes, he is in my ears
He's in my blood, he is in my tears
I must be made of steel
For I just threw out the love of my dreams

    this song is interesting because rivers wrote it from a female's perspective and then got a girl to sing it. that's so cool.

    thats weezerific:cutlery. i think that this song is rivers writing what he'd like a girl to write about him. most of his songs are about how a girl he likes doesn't like him so i think its him writing about a girl that likes him and is regretting dumping him. or something like that...

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.
