I got a house but I need new furniture
Why spend mine when I could spend yours?
The truth is, I will love you the same
But why complain, you buying Gucci, babe?

You might see me in the spot, ya boy think I'm hot
So I came up in here to get what you got
I'm hot like the block, uh huh, you like that
Know you wanna bite that, uh huh, yeah, right there

They love the young girl, they wanna give it to me
Wish I was in a flick and I ain't talking movies
If ya young, if ya hot, girl, shake what ya got, girl
I keep 'em singing

Lemme get that, huh
What you got, up in them jeans?
Put it on me or get lonely
Lemme get that, huh?
You know five car garages
Name on your bank account, all day massages

Lemme hit that, huh
I wanna put it on blast
Lemme get that, huh?
Better slow down 'fore I make you crash, boy
Got what you want, baby, got what you need
But we can't proceed unless you got that for me

I got a house but I need new furniture
Why spend mine when I could spend yours?
The truth is, I will love you the same
But why complain, you buying Gucci, babe?

I'mma put you on the spot, keep the sheet in knots
I bought me a Benz, you buy me the yacht
A girl need a lot, the girl need some stocks
Bonds is what I got, bonds is what I got

They love the young girl, they wanna give it to me
Wish I was in a flick and I ain't talking movies
If ya young, if ya hot, girl, shake what ya got, girl
I keep 'em singing

Lemme get that, huh
What you got, up in them jeans?
Put it on me or get lonely
Lemme get that, huh?
You know 5 car garages
Name on your bank account, all day massages

Lemme hit that, huh
I wanna put it on blast
Lemme get that, huh?
Better slow down 'fore I make you crash, boy
Got what you want, baby, got what you need
But we can't proceed unless you got that for me

I got a house but I need new furniture
Why spend mine when I could spend yours?
The truth is, I will love you the same
But why complain, you buying Gucci, babe?

Boy, I know you want my love, love
Nothing is free in this world, world
Unless my love is your love, love
I'm not a gold digger

Lemme get that, huh
What you got, up in them jeans?
Put it on me or get lonely
Lemme get that, huh?
You know 5 car garages
Name on your bank account, all day massages

Lemme hit that, huh
I wanna put it on blast
Lemme get that, huh?
Better slow down 'fore I make you crash, boy
Got what you want, baby, got what you need
But we can't proceed unless you got that for me

I got a house but I need new furniture
Why spend mine when I could spend yours?
The truth is, I will love you the same
But why complain, you buying Gucci, babe?

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
