all the people runnig through the cities
crowding subway lines and trams and buses
trying to connect with secret signal codes
sending messages like little men from outer worlds
in outer space and time
do you hear what i think do i hear what you think
we’re communicating vessels
waving little signal flags from our isolated lives

i wanna hear your messages please let me have your messages
i wanna get your messages let me not miss your messages

i am running through the city having you in mind
who are so many miles away from me on another continent
can you catch my signals while you board a suburb train
which takes you to your room
do you catch what i feel do i catch what you feel
we’re communicating vessels
trying to connect across the distances of land and sea

i wanna hear your messages please let me have your messages
i wanna get your messages let me not miss your messages

but there is no sound and there is no song
only mute voices only white noises silence is obiquitous
everywhere everywhere speak speak or at least whisper
noone says a word in this silent universe
let’s have some music melodies of yesteryear
sing sing break this quiet silent as the grave
speak speak speak speak speak speak speak speak speak speak
speak speak speak speak speak
why is there no language where are all the words

how can i hear your messages please let me catch your messages
i cannot hear your messages why can’t i hear your messages

i wanna hear your messages please let me have your messages
i wanna get your messages let me not miss your messages

how can i hear your messages please let me catch your messages
i cannot hear your messages why can’t i hear your messages

i wanna hear your messages please let me have your messages
i wanna get your messages let me not miss your messages
i wanna get your messages

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

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.
