They stop at the light
She painted her lips white
Saying it's green and let's go
Well it happened at least I told the truth one time
'Cause I don't need some line
Supposed to appease me
I'm so sick of that

When you echo back, and you're alright
Everybody has it
Everybody has it
Everybody has it
It's all right

Look around, take a look around you
Everybody has it
Everybody has it
Everybody has it
You're all right

He knows what he's got
Some must think
Far from what he's not
When everyone's drinking
Which is most of the time
Red is the color
That she dreams about you
Every night and makes her cry

Everybody has it
Everybody has it
Everybody has it
So don't cry

Look around, take a look around you
Everybody has it
Everybody has it
Everybody has it
It's all right

Look around, take a look around you,
Everybody has it and everybody has it
And everybody has it
You're so bright
I looked around and I looked around
And oh you're so right, oh you're so right
Oh you're so right
You're so bright
Looked around and I looked around
And oh you're so right, oh you're so right
Oh you're so right
You're so bright

    I don't hear "Supposed to appease me" I hear "Supposed to abuse me". Anyone else? It makes me wonder if the previous line ends right too - I mean is it possible that it's 'guy' maybe instead of 'line'? Anyway, good Elliott song overlooked because it's Heatmiser rather than solo. Reminds me a little of 'Cecelia Amanda but I don't know why.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

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.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
