You can never understand me.
'Cause I, I felt this in my...
I felt this in my soul.
You never made an understanding.
'Cause I, I felt this in my...
I felt this in my soul.
This, this never meant shit to you.
I could prove that.
My, my moist eyes..
You broke a sweat and I belong here.

You can never understand me.
'Cause I, I felt this in my...
I felt this in my soul.
You never made an understanding.
'Cause I, I felt this in my...
I felt this in my soul.
This never meant shit to you.
I could prove that.
My, my moist eyes..
You broke a sweat and I belong here.
I belong here now.

You took my hand and led me wrong,
Now I'm back and I'm sad.
And I... I wanna know why.

It's always on my mind, I can't get it out..
I wake up at night, in my bed, and its on my mind.
It's always on my mind.
And I can't get it out.

It's always on my mind, I can't get it out..
I wake up at night, in my bed, its on my mind.
It's always on my mind.
And I can't get it out.
I know I try.

    Part of the missing lyrics are from the song "Hipocrite", but here they are. -

    I cannot stand there, I will not watch that, I won’t be left here alone. Your phony values, Your stolen pep talk, You took the stars from my eyes.

    You told me. You fucking told me. "Everlasting friendship." You lied to me.

    You told me. You told me. "Everlasting friendship." I trusted you.

    YEEEEEAHHHHHHH!!!!

    Your hatred an excuse against all that happens to you. Something to fall back upon and I see your stories.

    Your hatred and excuse against all that happens to you. Something to fall back upon and I see your stories. You wanted to end the fight my son, While you attack the defenseless when their guards are down.

    It's in the past, leave it behind. I don’t hate you, but I’ll speak my mind. You wanted to break the walls, now face up to what you built. You’re a hypocrite, you're a hypocrite.

    Face the lies!

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.

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."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
