Your in my air
Every breathe that I take I can't escape
Ohhh everywhere I go
I feel your stare like your there
Can't you see I'm scattered
Like memories from the past
Shattered like a bullet through glass

I'm in pieces
On what might've been
Every night I spend asleep less
Smokin' cigarettes till 3am
In an empty bed and I can't get you out of my head

You burnt your name
Into my heart where its scared
I can't erase you form me
You soul and mine intertwined
You cut the line
And I'm drifting
Holdin to the past
Memories like a bullet through glass

I'm in pieces
On what might've been
Every night I spend asleep less
Smokin' cigarettes till 3am
In an empty bed and I can't get you out of my head

Oh I can't get you out my head
Outta my head
Outta my life
Outta my dream
Broken emotion you left me in pieces

Scattered like memories from the past
Shattered like a bullet through glass

I'm in pieces
Ohhhh we might've been
Every night I spend asleep less
Smokin' cigarettes till 3am
In an empty bed and I can't get you out of my head

No I can't get you outta my head

Outta my head x 9

    a guy has fallen for some chic... and she says she likes him and in time they will be together...... but now shes just cut him off with nothing... left him confussed and is scattered... shes kept him hanging on by a thread for so long.. ... keeping him hopeful... but now shes just cut him off and wont talk.. so now hes wondering what hes done wrong... but its just her taking the easy way out . when she should just come out n say that its not working, not say that its the guys fault and turn it all around on him making him break down and constantly trying to think what he could have done thats so severe that could change things so quickly when thing where going so good! ... hes given her his all and she cant return it .... so she just makes things out to be his fault when all he did was love her and want to steel her pain away and simply love her for who she was ... "im talking shit now" and yer... i donno... now he cant escape her cause he needs that closure to move on and she wont give it to him and she doesnt relise that by her just not commen out sayen she doesnt want anything to do with him.. is hurting and will hurt him a lot more... instead of playing with his mind n stuff...... she trys to turn it round on him so if he bites back she can use that as an excuse to leave it... he cant stop thinking what could have possibly gone wrong.. and wont cause its all made up by her ... she wont even tell him what hes done... so the guy doesnt have a chance to make things right.

    A girl left the guy in the song and the guy is trying to forget about her but he finds it very hard since she's shared so much with him. The start of the song's very eerie, kinda scares me a bit

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Show Me a Little Shame
Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals
He certainly did earn that reputation.

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.

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.

Dreamwalker
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.
