Yes I, I am a nighthawk
Flying to the night
(Yes) in the dark I walk a tightrope
Though I never slip and fall
(That's OK)
In the clouds there is a nighthawk
Who can hear the midnight call
(Hear what I say)
And I know I can stand up on my own
(So to speak so to speak)
And I know I will never be alone
(There's more like me there's more like me)
Yes I, I am a nighthawk
Flying into the night
Yes I, I am a nighthawk
Flying to the night
(Yes) the sky is free like my spirit
And I am going all the way
(That's OK)
You can see but when you hear it
Senses tell you I don't bluff
(Hear what I say)
And I know I can stand up on my own
(So to speak so to speak)
And I know I will never be alone
There's no like me there's more like me

Yes I, I am a nighthawk
Flying into the night
Yes I, I am a nighthawk
Flying to the night
Yes I am a nighthawk
Flying into the night
Yes I, I am a nighthawk
Flying to the night
(Yes)

And I know I will never be alone
There's more like me
And I know I can stand up on my own
So to speak
And I know I can stand up on my own
(So to speak) so to speak
And I know I will never be alone
There's more like me there's more like me
Yes I, I am a nighthawk
Flying into the night
Yes I, I am a nighthawk
Flying to the night
Yes I am a nighthawk
Flying into the night
Yes I, I am a nighthawk
Flying to the night

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.

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."
