I am awake, a lonely dreamer
I think of your face
'Cause you take me with you
And I drift away
I can not escape

You lift up
My eyes to
Forever
I'll see you awake

And I'll sing la da da dum
La da da dum
La dum da dum da dum

'Cause you are the fire
And I am the rain
Love is our way
How is it now that I carry on
Without your face

And when you died, I sang, I cried
The words to a song in place of your eyes
To fare these days and dreamless nights
I want you back

But all these dreams are careless things
I want them
But always night, I close my eyes
I want to run
Run to you
In dreams

And I sing la da da dum
La da da dum
La dum da dum da dum

We were in love, so fearless and true
Love is always
So I'll carry on in memory of you
Until that day

And when we die, we'll sing, we'll dine
Tonight we'll see what all this means
The time will come when I will run to you
I'll run to you

But all these dreams are careless things
I want them
But always night, I close my eyes
I want to run
Run to you

My god had it right
For you tonight
And you will see
And you will see us again

And I will sing la da da dum
La da da dum
La da dum da dum

    Oh I forgot to mention the day I recieved this song my friend Ashley told me she had a month left to live according to doctor's because her lung cancer had gotten really bad. I read the lyrics to this song and noticed it is about someone dying. So I went to their website (according to their record company) waitingforautumn.com and it is just a page searching lung cancer. How effed up is that..?

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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”

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.
