In the dark corner of the room, I see
Another part of you and all through
And all through these house I walk, I see you
And all through this world I see you

Now that you're gone and even though it's hard to say
I know that we'll be home together somewhere, someday

I'm running through and forest of you
And the traffic swells around my feet
I'm spinning through a forest of you
And your laughter spills into the street

Now that you're gone and even though it's hard to say
I know that we'll be old together somewhere, someday

In the dark corner of the room, I see
Another part of you I see through
But I don't care I take every part of you, I don't care

Now that you're gone and even though it's hard to say
I know that we'll be old together somewhere, someday

Now that you're gone, it's hard to say
That would be whole together somewhere, someday

In the dark of the room, i see
Another part of you

And I stay

    This person is walking around the house and remembering details of someone they love. Or in other words, searching their heart, a dark, dark corner and staying in the past. Not wanting to let it go, and willing to take any part of that "someone" they once had. Even if it's only an imaginary part. In hopes that this lover will "come back" home and everything will be where it belongs. But the person is saying this like they have it all together. It's all gonna be good. But the lover isn't really comming back. And deep down, they know.

its amazing how far music can come.. 24 years after it released and its one of the most heartfelt songs ive heard

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

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.

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.
