Mein Spiegelbild, es schaut mich an
Lässt Ähnlichkeit vermissen
Was ist geschen? Was ist passiert?
Will ich es wirklich wissen?

Ist das nicht Blut
An meinen Händen?
Es geht mir gut, vielen Dank
Lass es dabei bewenden
Du weißt, ich war im Bett bei Dir
Sag es ihnen ich war doch die ganze Zeit hier

[Chorus]
Es tobt ein Krieg in mir - ich kämpf mit aller Macht
Es tobt ein Krieg in mir - ich schlag die letzte Schlacht
Es tobt ein Krieg in mir - ich wehr mich wie von Sinnen
Ein Krieg in mir - ich weiß ich kann nicht gewinnen
Am Ende steht nicht der Sieg
Denn es tobt ein Krieg... in mir

Es ist zu hell, mein Kopf tut weh
Frag nicht, ich kann mich leider
An nichts erinnern, Moos im Haar
Und wo sind meine Kleider

Nichts ist geschehn
In meinen Träumen
Du warst so schön und jung
Nun schläfst du unter Bäumen
Sanft mit Blättern zugedeckt
Keine Angst, dass dich jemand dort draussen entdeckt

[Chorus]
Es tobt ein Krieg in mir - ich kämpf mit aller Macht
Es tobt ein Krieg in mir - ich schlag die letzte Schlacht
Es tobt ein Krieg in mir - ich wehr mich wie von Sinnen
Ein Krieg in mir - ich weiß ich kann nicht gewinnen
Am Ende steht nicht der Sieg
Denn es tobt ein Krieg... in mir

Ich riech den Angstschweiss immer noch
Klebt an den Fingerspitzen
Ich fühl das Tier hinter meinem Gesicht
Mit einem Grinsen sitzen

Jetzt macht es sich
Zum Sprung bereit
Jetzt will es dich lauf schnell weg
Denn noch bleibt etwas Zeit
Nein dir wird doch nichts passieren
Bleib nur hier lass mich kurz deine Haare berühren

[Chorus]
Es tobt ein Krieg in mir - ich kämpf mit aller Macht
Es tobt ein Krieg in mir - ich schlag die letzte Schlacht
Es tobt ein Krieg in mir - es zerreißt mich tief drinnen
Ein Krieg in mir - es gibt kein Entrinnen
Am Ende steht nicht der Sieg
Denn es tobt ein Krieg... in mir

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.

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.

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.
