You push my buttons and open these scars
Just to watch me bleed what I've already bled a thousand times before
Agonizing...you make me scream and shout
I owe this all to you
You're the reason that I'm always coming down

I'm just a bruised and broken heart
But the memories you left are of a girl who's lost and broken
Now it's a shame you've lost your touch and you can't control your lust
I was only a heartbeat away from forgiving you.....
From forgiving you
Let the past be

I'm learning lessons while you're still breaking hearts
If only you could see the world is not as cold as you had thought before
Always trying to break and keep me down...you're the reason that iturned my life around

I'm just a bruised and broken heart
But the memories you left are of a girl who's lost and broken
Now it's a shame you've lost your touch and you can't control your lust
I was only a heartbeat away from forgiving you.....
From forgiving you
(Let the past be)
You were everything I'd ever need
(But we are though)
And I'm everything you'll never be
(Ill see this through)

I'm just a bruised and broken heart
But the memories you left are of a girl who's lost and broken
Now it's a shame you've lost your touch and you can't control your lust
I was only a heartbeat away from forgiving you.....

And now I'm giving you.....
All that you've earned
How's it feel to see the tables turned
You will never see this face again
And I have no more tears to be shed....

You will not see this face again
Never again

    maybe this song is about some guy who was with a girl who's "lost and broken" and how he's sick of her hurting him (i.e. cheating: "Now it's a shame you've lost your touch and you can't control your lust"), and how he's finnaly happy to be done with her.

    lol, i bought this cd because of this song, i was thinkin they were gonna be as good as atreyu lyrically ... i was wayyyyyyy wrong. I'm sorry to everyone who likes this band, but honestly ... theeeee worst $15 i've ever wasted on a cd.

    I do like this song, but as for the whole cd together, nothing but cliche verses; they didnt even write all of their songs, they co-wrote a few while another guy co-wrote it too which tells me that they're pathetic

    sorry, but to all who likes hardcore music and atreyu and was thinkin about buyin this cd, i urge that you most likely shouldnt...

    The meaning is really obvious... He was in love with a girl who was 'lost and broken' and she ended up cheating one him ('Now it's a shame you've lost your touch and you can't control your lust.') He wanted to forgive her ('I was only a heartbeat away from forgiving you') but she cheated on him again or was unrepentant and so he decided to 'let the past be' because it was obviously over with this girl. At least thats what it sounds like to me...

    ok. so yes. the basic meaning of this song is that he is leaving a girl who has broken his heart by cheating on him. but there's so much more to it, cuz this song is word for word what i felt after my abusive exbf. so let's break this down a bit.

    "you're the reason that i turned my life around"

    this shows how angry he is over the relationship and how he feels about this girl.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

The way this song speaks to me🥺🥺when I sing it I feel like I relate

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.

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.
