please don't move too soon, too sudden
I might have to do something I don't want too, do you?
I don't think so
so please just act slow
this will all be over before you know
(we're trying to help you)

my eardrums pound, I'm trying so hard to not shoot
the glorious sound, no one move around

you would feel the same way

    Love this so much, I interpret it as a warning, or advice: "don't love too soon"

    I agree in that aspect. I thought adding the thing about how cell phones inpact relationships was brilliant. You know..texts and all.

    The last posted lyrics are definitely the ones that go best with the song. That's what I got out of it.

    The robbery interpretation makes the most sense. Open register, it fits.

    ive always thought it was

    my eardrums pound im trying so hard to not shoot the glorious down

    so then its like..trying not to put someone down, ruin their hopes and dreams..or more literally shoot someone glorified..like a cop

    but listening to it again it could be sound or down in places, i think id prefer it to be down

    The song is about feeling trapped. About rushing in without seeing the consequences and then being forced to either hurt others or surrender to the mess you created for yourself. Trying to find a way out. But all you can hear is the pounding in your own ears, the rush of emotion enhancing the sound, drowning out all others.<a href="seobizonline.com/search-engine-optimization.html">search engine optimization</a> | <a href="seobizonline.com/search-engine-optimization-agency.html">search engine optimization agency</a> |

    Again I must offer some suggestions for lyrics that make a little bit more sense.

    Blew your sole move too soon Do yourself, I don't have to Do you suffer? I don't want to Do you? I don't think so, so please just act slow This'll all be over before You know... you know

    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!

    My eardrums pound I'm trying so hard To not shoot A glorious sound No other around

    Blew your sole move too soon Do yourself or I might have to Do you suffer? I don't want to Do you? I don't think so, so please just act slow This'll all be over before You know... you know

    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!

    My eardrums pound I'm trying hard to Not shoot A glorious sound No other around

    You Would Too The same way You Would Feel The same way

    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!

    My eardrums pound I'm trying hard to Not shoot A glorious sound No other around

    WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU!

    My eardrums pound WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU! I'm trying hard to WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU! Not shoot A glorious sound WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU! No other around


    Hearing the lyrics this way, one can imagine a robbery-turned-hostage-situation (robbery = open register) with the police outside telling him he blew it, he put himself there, and if he takes responsibility they won't have to hurt him. They're yelling "We're trying to HELP you!" and the gunman is trying hard not to shoot, and at one point yells "You would do the same, you would feel the same, if you were in my position!" But of course this imagery is used as an analogy for something else...

    The song is about feeling trapped. About rushing in without seeing the consequences and then being forced to either hurt others or surrender to the mess you created for yourself. Trying to find a way out. But all you can hear is the pounding in your own ears, the rush of emotion enhancing the sound, drowning out all others.

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
