I just thought I'd let you know
That although I'm far
I'm close to you within
And all the time spent by your side
Is taken deep in me
Held for me to keep

To look upon when I'm feeling like
Everything or one
Is hurting me for something or other
It takes me to a better place
No place I'd rather go
Thought I'd let you know

[Chorus]
Who you are
What you do
Makes me burn to be in you (be in you)
Who you are (who you are)
And what you do (what you do)
I'm burning to be in you

I just thought that I'd let you know
Being near you is
A gift I only wish I could treasure
But for now I'll sit and wait
But I'm still burning though
Thought I'd let you know

[Chorus]

I, thought, I'd let, you know

It feels like I'm falling
I'm all on my own
Thought I'd let, you know
It feels like I'm falling
I'm all on my own
Thought I'd let, you know

[Chorus: x2]

    It reminds me of my best friend Sean who I love so much, but he doesn't want a gf right now:( He makes me so happy and he cheers me up when the whole world is hurting me so much. I want to be with him he makes me so happy. He is a gift I wish I could treasure but I will sit and wait for him till he is ready to have gf. When I'm with him all my pain seems to disappear and I'm happy again. -Evanita

    i think this song will always make me nostalgic. i first heard it when i was reunited with my best friend. he had told me he loved me and then freaked out 6 months earlier, and we hadn't talked since. during those six months both our lives were undescribably hellish for many reasons.. and then, ironically thanks to my now ex boyfriend, we started talking again and a few days later he was living with me and my parents in my own house. he brought with him a car and a hoobastank cd, and now whenever i hear this song i remember how wonderful it felt speeding down a winding road with the wind and this song and that beautiful boy sitting there next to me.....

    "And all the time spent by your side Is taken deep in me Held for me to keep To look upon when I'm feeling like Everything and one Is hurting me for something or other It takes me to a better place Nowhere I'd rather go Thought I'd let you know"

    now the irony is that though he loves me, and i finally know i love him, he doesn't want anything more than this friendship/companionship..

    "Being near you is A gift I only wish I could treasure But for now I'll sit and wait I'm still burning though Thought I'd let you know"

    ........ this song is just too perfectly describing my situation...

    well SHIT ON ME!!! why?? why why WHY? ugh.. the only thing that will give me comfort is listening to that song.... i think i'll go do that now...

    this song makes me think that okay, from dougs point of view its like he loves this girl, and hes with her a lot......but he cant have her the way he would want to. its like someone saying that they dont want to be in a relationship with you, but you constantly hang with them, its makes you want them more.

    there's this girl i've liked for a long time, but i've always been too scared to tell her, even though i sit next to her everyday in class. then i realized she graduating and i might not ever see her again. i heard this song and immediatly thought of her. when i finally got the guts to tell her i liked her and have for a while, i wrote the lyrics to this song and "secretly" put it in her purse. she loved it and recognized my handwriting. too bad she doesnt like me. now she has a dirtbag boyfriend. he's an a** which is just the opposite of her. oh well.

    the girl's name is Jessy.

    It makes me sad to see how most people can let someone else have influence over their life, whether your together or not

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.

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."

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
