To hold you
Love you
See you smile at the break of day
To touch you
Know you
Want you by me.
When you're far away
It's easy to say
But hard to do
When you're in love
With some foolish child
And everybody
Just can't understand
They say, see him, watch him
He will change his mind
But I see you
Want him
You're always with him
... When the lights go down
You need him
Love him
He promises
He'll always stay around
It's easy for me
When the daylight's here
It's easy to be happy
When I'm in the crowd
But maybe someday
I could take his place
l want you, need you
I won't change my mind
But he holds you
Loves you
He has you with him
At the break of day
He'll touch you
Know you
Wants you by him
Though you're far away
If all these things you say are true
There's just one thing I need to know
Is this love or lies, just a flame or a fire
There's something I need and only you can help
To hold you
Love you
See you smile
At the break of day
To touch you
Know you
Want you by me
When you're far away
To hold you
Love you
Have you with me
When the lights go down
To see you
Need you
Promise me
You'll always stay around

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
