Underneath the moon, underneath the stars
Here's a little heart for you
Up above the world, up above it all
Here's a hand to hold on to

But if I should break, if I should fall away
What am I to do?
I need someone to take, a little of the weight
Or ill fall through

You're just the one that I've been waiting for
I'll give you all that I have to give and more
But don't let me fall

Take a little time, walk a little line
Got the balance right
Give a little love, gimme just enough
So that I can hang on tight

We will be alright, I'll be by your side
I wont let you down
But I gotta know, no matter how things go
That you will be around

You're just the one that I've been waiting for
I'll give you all that I have to give and more
But don't let me fall

Don't let me fall

Underneath the moon, underneath the stars
Here's a little heart for you
Up above the world, up above it all
Here's a hand to hold on to

You're just the one that I've been waiting for
I'll give you all that I have to give and more
But don't let me fall

You'll be the one that I'll love forever more
I'll be here holding you high above it all
But don't let me fall

    Oh my goodness, seriously why hasn't anyone commented on this song yet? It's got to be my favourite off of the album, 'Trouble is A Friend' as well. Absolutely beautiful song, very relatable!

    I can relate to this song so much... I'm in love for the first time, and, I think it's really just the speaker saying that she'll love this person so much that she'll do anything for them, but she doesn't want them to hurt her. It's also a very simplistic love song, too, which I admire.

    I think the song could be interpreted into two because of the word fall. Falling here could be pertaining to falling apart (failed relationship) or falling in love (you know what it means ^_^).

    First is clearer, she's asking the other half to help her keep the relationship working because she can't do it alone.

    Second, it's possible that she knows whom she'll end up with. She's giving promises to that person but at the same time asking him not to make her fall in love with him because she's not ready for a commitment yet.

    Whatever the real meaning of this song is, one thing's common, she needs his help :)

    My Interpretation

    Well, I think the song's about a girl who knows that she likes him, and he probably likes her back, but she is trying to make sure whether he is committed to her or not.

    Anyways, lovely song. I first found it at a Star World Valentine's Day commercial, its title written in little transparent letters at the corners of the screen.

    Such a beautiful song, like so much of Lenka’s music. I discovered Lenka just after I lost my dad unexpectedly, 7 months ago. Her music is really helping me through the most difficult time of my life. To me, this song speaks about fear of falling apart and needing to know that the person you love will be there to catch you/hold you if you do fall. That they’ll be there to hold your hand and gradually help you put yourself back together. It relates so much to my relationship with my husband at the moment - all my insecurities about being left alone again due to my mental health. I’m slowing beginning to trust that he will be there, but it’s hard. This song gives me hope.

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.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
