Mother to all people,
She's still got some things to prove.
Pressed to find a reason --
You know I could name a few.
But sometimes, I want a baby
And oh, what can I do?
Morning brings another hymn
To home.

So hang onto me.
You're the only thing I have
To wash my body clean
And guide me on my path.

They held love like a trophy,
Like they'd never been on their days.
But when it gets too dark to see,
Oh, you always call me back.

I nearly fell to pieces
Trying to wheel my dirty shoes.
I'm working on a sequel.
You know good things come in two.
She said, "Your love makes me crazy.
Someday, I'll have to choose."
Lover, that same trouble's
Just old news.

So hang onto me,
For I'm the only chance you've got
To set your body free
And keep you from falling off.

When they held love like a trophy,
It's like they've never been on their days.
It's a lonely life to lead
And I could have spared you that.

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.

He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
