I can't think
I can't sleep
I can't find the words I want to say
Wasted
Useless
Don't have the strength to raise my eyes

This was the place to be
In times we got along
If you really hated me
Then my memory's wrong

I see we're at the road
I just wanted you to know
It was nice to meet you
Nice to see you
Glad that I don't have to be you

Worthless
I would have been
All the things you made me want to feel
Punkass
Weasel
I didn't get the joke cause the joke was me

This was the place to be
In times we got along
If you really hated me
Then my memory's wrong

I see we're at the road
I just wanted you to know
It was nice to meet you
Nice to see you
Glad that I don't have to be you
Some people never change
And get lost inside the rain
It was nice to meet you
Nice to see you
Glad that I don't have to be you
Some things never change...

    These lyrics are subject as I was doing them by ear. I couldn't find them anywhere and this band doesn't have a website or label as far as I know. But this is a damn good song.

    YES! Thank you so much for putting up the lyrics! Been looking for them forever! I think you've got everything right, I haven't heard the song for a while

    I know how you feel, I couldnt find these anywhere for so long. I just gave up and decided to figure it out myself. At some points its a little hard to understand but I did the best I could.

    I think the meaning of this song is pretty obvious...

    I think it says "At times we got along," rather than "In times we got along."

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.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
