Zwar lieg ich nachts stundenlang wach und denk an Dich,
doch in Wirklichkeit lieb ich Dich nicht.
Zwar gibt es keine schönere Frau auf der ganzen Welt für mich,
doch in Wirklichkeit lieb ich Dich nicht.

Eigentlich bist Du mir egal!
Eigentlich bist Du nicht mein Typ!
Und auf jeden Fall bin ich gar nicht in Dich verliebt!

Ich steh zwar ab und zu einfach nur so vor Deiner Tür,
doch im Prinzip will ich gar nichts von Dir.
Dein Foto hängt wirklich nur zufällig hier.
Im Prinzip will ich gar nichts von Dir.

Eigentlich bist Du mir egal!
Eigentlich bist Du nicht mein Typ!
Und auf jeden Fall bin ich gar nicht in Dich verliebt!

Du bist nur Luft für mich - ganz unwichtig
Total banal - ich nehm Dich gar nicht wahr.
Du bist mir einfach phänomenal egal.

Ich muss es Dir gestehen, selbst wenn dein Herz daran zerbricht:
In Wirklichkeit lieb ich Dich nicht!
Du hast so schöne Augen und ein noch schöneres Gesicht:
In Wirklichkeit lieb ich Dich nicht!

Eigentlich bist Du mir egal!
Eigentlich bist Du nicht mein Typ!
Und auf jeden Fall bin ich fast gar nicht in Dich verliebt!

Verliebt! (wdh.)
Fast gar nicht in Dich verliebt!

    English translation (my apologies if it doesn't sound natural - my native language is neither English nor German):

    I may lie awake in the night for hours thinking about you, but, in fact, I don't love you. For me there may be no woman in the world more beautiful than you, but, in fact, I don't love you.

    Essentialy - I feel indifferent about you! In fact, you're not my type! And in any case - I'm not in love with you at all!

    I may occasionally stand at your door just for the sake of it, but, in principle, I don't want anything from you. Your picture really just happens to be hanging here. In principle, I don't want anything from you.

    Essentialy - I feel indifferent about you! In fact, you're not my type! And in any case - I'm not in love with you at all!

    You're nothing but air for me - quite unimportant, downright banal - I don't even notice you! To me you're just phenomenally immaterial!

    I have to confess this to you, even if it breaks your heart: In fact, I don't love you! You have such beautiful eyes and an even more beautiful face. In fact, I don't love you!

    Essentialy - I feel indifferent about you! In fact, you're not my type! And in any case - I'm not in love with you at all!

    In love! (repeated) (I'm) almost not in love with you at all!

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Magical
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.
