From beneath the bedroom floor
It is hunting me
Silence clicking off the door
And it sucks me in

Was I right to overstep the border
that leads me to this place?
Was I right to ignoring all the warning signs
Accepting to fall from grace?

Am I suffocating right?
Is there anybody watching?
Is there anything inside
That might keep me here

Am I suffocating right?
Is there anybody listening?
Is there anything inside
that can stop me here?

From behind the bedroom door
it is calling me
A silence never felt before
and I am still crying

Was I right to overstep the thin line
that keeps me from this place?
Was I right to rejecting all the spoken words
ignoring to fall from grace?

Am I suffocating right?
Is there anybody watching?
Is there anything inside
that might keep me here

Am I suffocating right?
Is there anybody listening?
Is there anything inside
that can stop me here

    I can't believe no one has commited this song...

    I believe its about him trying to find a reason to stay but he can't find it, and every where he looks he feels himself staying. After awhile he thinks that place is bad so he questions himself and is wondering if anyone is watching him leave. He wants to stay ,but he doesn't know if he can. Its constantly calling him a haunting him. At the end he leaves because the force sucks him in. Awesome song I love it kick ass piano.

    Lyric Correction

    "A silence never felt before and I am still crying"

    I can clearly hear: "And I'm stuck right in"

    "Was I right to rejecting all the spoken words ignoring to fall from grace?"

    No "to" heard, plus it's againt grammar to place "to" here, so I go for: "Was I right rejecting all the spoken words ignoring to fall from grace?"

    Also, the refrain before the last one contains "Is there anything outside" rather than "inside"

    I believe it's about feeling unsure about yourself. Feeling neglected or depressed. The way itissung, the singer sounds like he has lost hope for himself and just wants to quit his life. He's always wondering if he's "suffocating right" whether this means how he is killing himself or how've feels about himself is unclear. He feels he is bound to this place and can't leave but still questions whether or not he is strong enough to try..

    I love this song. The music, the beat and the singing is all amazing. It's great to listen to when your spaced out or depressed

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
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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
