Fifteen I'm strung out
Once again and kicked out
I think well I'm on my own,
I'm on my own now,

Sixteen and I said goodbye
To those I knew I'll never see
Well I can't see home
I can't see home now

When I look at the path
That I chose and I'll say to you
Live Fast Die Young
We'll stay out on the run

So live fast and die young
Live Fast Die Young
We'll stay out on the run
So live fast and die young

Seventeen I'm sleepin on the
Streets and no hope
I think well I'm in the cold
I'm in the cold now,

I look to a god I said
In my own life
I'll never see well
I can't see home

I can't see home now
When I look at the path
That I chose and I'll say to you.
Live Fast Die Young

We'll stay out on the run
So live fast and die young
Live Fast Die Young
We'll stay out on the run

So live fast and die young
We'll cherish every moment last forever
We'll cherish every moment now
We'll cherish every moment last forever

We'll cherish every moment now
Go Go Go Go
Live fast and die young

    This song is about growing up and finding your own way, not knowing were to go, What you're gonna do, but just living your life like it's your last day

    Actually...sounds more like it's about him when he first got into the tragic shit that nearly ruined him. He was first addicted to drugs/alcohol young, and at one point got kicked out of school, in turn booting him from home at the tender age of 15. It's pretty much the memrobillia of his life.

    i actually agree with all the posts of the song meaning. for him it was about growing up and finding his way through life and for someone else it may be just that.

    this song is about how his child was just an unimportant thing then, but now he knows how of a shithole he was. he didnt really celebrate his years, cuz he really didnt care. it was like "woopdy fuckee, another year."

    I'm surprised of the amazing line he said.

    I look to a god I said in my own life I'll never see well

    He is having doubts about his religion, and believing in god.

    Heh. This is so stupid. I'm 15 now and when I turned 14 I got into all the shit described in this song. I smoke, drank heavily and did a shit load of drugs. I also once assaulted a teacher at school. On top of that, I'd shoplift and steal from cars, plus vandalise property for fun. That was my hobby. I was a total brat to my dad and ran away to live with my mum, and I got kicked out of there numerous times. I first heard this song when I was doing all that and I laughed. He makes it sound so serious. I think he uses his life as a tool to get teenagers on the Internet to feel sorry for him so they'll buy his albums. It's rubbish. I mean "His tragic life"? What's tragic about taking drugs and stealing other peoples stuff? He did it himself. That doesn't make him a victim, the people he hurt are the victims. Do you honestly feel sorry for him because he stole from other people and damaged their property? POOR GUY! (By the way I'm out of all that now and back living with my dad ^_^)

Love in a Vacuum
'Til Tuesday
Well, in my opinion this song is about being a young & maybe a little naive &/or introverted girl and finding yourself loving a man who is at first very charming, carefree & outgoing, and seems at first to be without limits, as in "There was a time you opened up every doorway you didn't mind if everything wasn't your way" then that man starts to gradually become more introverted & shows their more possessive/obsessive side to you as the relationship progresses, even while they keep up the appearance of being carefree & outgoing to everyone else, "Don't pull away that goes against what you told me I look in your eyes I realize what you've sold me is love in a vacuum" so you confront them about the way they're acting and of course they deny it, "I think you've changed but you insist that that's not true" quite possibly they are an addict of some sort, my guess would be cocaine, &/or showing very obsessive behavior towards you (early on in the video for this song we see the man hanging a picture up, it is a very large portrait of Aimee & it is prominently displayed in his/their apartment for the duration of the song), thus their "love in a vacuum", "You look so strange, so distant that you're hardly you Now I can see how you have been acting different You say it's me but I know that it isn't it's love in a vacuum" but still you are in love with them and don't want to leave them and you know that they are truly in love with you and they don't want you to leave them either, maybe they are convinced you can save them from themself, maybe they are so broken that the possibility of an overdose &/or suicide attempt is very real and you want to get through to them that their behavior not only dangerous but it is also just pissing you off and if they don't wise up they run the risk of loosing you, as in the lines "You will be lonely if you leave me alone", so you want to save them but can't get through to them due to the addiction &/or emotional problems they have, "Love in a vacuum and that's not enough love in a vacuum You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way You will be lonely if you leave me alone You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough" you want them to understand that the love they are giving you is not enough when it is filtered through the vacuum of their drug addiction &/or emotional impairment, "You will be lonely you'll be the only one who feels this way it's just not enough and just wait you will be lonely Love in a vacuum Love in a vacuum and that's not enough Love in a vacuum". 'Love In A Vacuum' for me is a hauntingly truthful acute argument on the loneliness of obsession and almost inevitable loss of love that follows people who are broken in some way or another; the obsessives, the coke heads, the drunks, addicts or the just-plain-old emotionally broken; a razor sharp, lyrically driven, deceptively poppy, yet ultimately-depressing-in-the-best-way song. Quintessential Aimee Mann.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
