It's a hard life
People get affected
By the towns they're in

She gave her man a chance
Who never had a man
Hard life
Now she lives in Canter berry
As long when she can
Hard life

She fell in love and killed a mistress
She was just a kid
Hard life
Until that first in ten months
At least she said she didn't
It's a hard life

Hope that baby, baby, it's a sin
Never be a loser 'cause the losers never win

It's a hard life
People get affected
By the towns they're in

She dressed in leather
When she went to Leatherhead
Hard life
And when she went to bed
Thought she never went to bed
Hard life

She said she went ahead
And then she tried to get ahead
Hard life
Get her heading head and lay off
I think that's what she said
It's a hard life

Hope that baby, baby, it's a sin
Never be a loser 'cause the losers never win

It's a hard life
People get affected
By the towns they're in

Money won't change her
Money won't change her
Money won't change her
She's funny about money
But money won't change her

Hope that baby, baby, it's a sin
Never be a loser 'cause the losers never win

It's a hard life
People get affected
By the towns they're in

We went to Sunnyland
And never saw the sun
Hard life
And ended up in dungeons
And it really isn't done
Hard life

We had a week in Lester
And liked it more or less
Hard life
And then we went to Preston
And someone told the press
It's a hard life

Hope that baby, baby, it's a sin
Never be a loser 'cause the losers never win

It's a hard life
People get affected
By the towns they're in
It's a hard life
People get affected
By the towns they're in

It's a hard life
People get affected
By the towns they're in
It's a hard life
People get affected
By the towns they're in

It's a hard life
People get affected

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.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
