I hope you don't mind if I send you a thought
You're still the special person for me
I know I should reserve that feeling for her
But I have fallen down a well of longing

I'm in a valley deep inside the earth
I'm in a rich vein of learning
I'm stuck still in the depth of the mud
Just God and tree and star for the journey

So listen friend you've got my love and respect
Do you believe in the life eternal?
I've got a feeling we'll be talking tonight
Because I knew you when we were so little

I knew you when I was a queer fish
You were the one they all wanted
I showered you with my light from afar
Now everyone is following you
You're the evening star

So many forces are pushing
How do you stay so calm?
If I could master an hour of your peace
Maybe I would know how to let this go

I messed up on the practical side
I can't believe all the trouble it caused me
I tried to make up on the spiritual side
My web of prayers and advice implore you

To live happy in the best way you can
To live with or without me
And if I feel like I am wasting my time
I'll write another letter to sing
To the evening star
Evening star
I'll write another letter to her
Evening star
I'll write another letter to her
Evening star
Another letter to her

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

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.
