And it really hurts when I'm thinking about you
My bet is you feel the same
And it just gets worse
All these promises were cruel
But my bet is you will remain

Did I ever tell you that you shook me to the bone
When all you did was be yourself
Have I ever told you
That you move the world I'm on
And this is my cry for help

And it really hurts when I'm thinking about you
And I'm still crying from the pain
And it only goes to show that I already know
That I, yeah I guess you will remain

Did I ever tell you that you shook me to the bone
When all you did was be yourself
Have I ever told you
That you move the world I'm on
And this is my cry for help
And this is my cry for help

And it really hurts when I'm thinking about you
And that don't sit too good with me
And it just gets worse
All them promises so cruel
But my bet is you will remain

Did I ever tell you that you brought me to my knees
When all you did was be yourself
Have I ever told you
That you made my whole world bleed
And this is my cry for help
And this is my cry for help

And it really hurts when I'm thinking about you
But my bet is you will remain
And this is my cry for help
And this is my cry for help
This is me crying
And this is my cry for help
This is me crying
This is me dying

    "Did I ever tell you that you shook me to the bone When all you did was be yourself" Something I've wanted to say for so long but never found the right words. Why isn't this song more famous? It's superb

    Shed Seven were such a great band overshadowed by Oasis and Blur which is a great shame.

    Did I ever tell you that you shook me to the bone When all you did was be yourself

    My now ex girlfriend always did that to me everytime I saw her, I just wished I'd have found the words when I was with her then maybe we'd still be together.

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.

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 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.
