Yeah, here we
Here we go now
Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy

These are the words we use everyday
Please, excuse me, thank you
Please, may I have some candy?
Please, can I watch some TV?

These are the words we use everyday
Please, excuse me, thank you
Please, can you roll down my window?
Please, can I have some tomorrow?

To say sorry is fine (hoo, hoo, hoo)
Hey, we can laugh and cry at the same time (hoo, hoo, hoo)
And when it's time for me to do (hoo, hoo, hoo)
Remember magic words make dreams come true

These are the words we use everyday
Please, excuse me, thank you
Please, I would like some pizza? (Like some pizza)
Please, may I have some ice cream? (Have some ice cream)

These are the words we use everyday
Please, excuse me, thank you
Please can I get a banjo? (Why?)
Please

Hey
These are the words we use every day
Please, excuse me, thank you
Please, can I have that toy? (Can I have that toy?)
Please, let's live in joy (let's live in joy)

These are the words we use everyday
Please, excuse me, thank you
Please, can I have a Madeline?
Please, it's not my bedtime (not my bedtime)

To say thank you is nice (hoo, hoo, hoo)
When you ask and get the things you like (hoo, hoo, hoo)
And when it's time for you to do (hoo, hoo, hoo)
Remember, magic words
Make your dreams come true

These are the words we use everyday
Please, excuse me, thank you (thank you, thank you)
Thank you

    I think it's the excuses we all make to ourselves about why we shouldn't take emotional or everyday risks anymore - it's almost safer to pretend something definitely won't work even though you may know there's a good possibility that it will. I suppose, a defense mechanism. "now my imagination is the only thing that limits" - she is admitting her thoughts in her head are her only restriction on why her happiness and quality of life aren't better.

    It's about the old adage of bliss being ignorance, and how we build a safety wall around our everyday lives. However, ultimately we must realize truth from excuse to truly grow as humans.

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”

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.
