Is there something that you are trying to say
Don't hold back now
It's been a long time since I felt this way
So don't hold back now

I purposely forgot about
Loving anyone
Cause I'm the only one who has
Who has been stepped upon

Is there something that you are trying to say
Cause I can take it
Cause I grew up a man this way
And if I'm hurt I'll shake it

I'll crawl back into my cave
That's how I'll make it
Cause out of all this hurt we have
Beauty thus become
Beauty thus become

[Chorus: x2]
In the mourning I can see the sights
No wonder I could never keep you satisfied
In the mourning I can see inside
Myself and all the things that you were trying to hide

Wishing all the best for you
And now I will say goodbye
Cause all the shit that we've been through
Put wisdom in my eyes

So walk away, don't turn around
Cause I won't be standing here
Cause all the lies that I've been living through
Are becoming very clear
And beauty thus become

[Chorus]

Then you conned me into thinking
That all I had was you
The small insinuations
Were cutting me through
Cutting me through

And now I stand alone here
Stronger than before
And I'll never go back
Never go back
Never go

[Chorus: x2]

    TO me this song is about breaking up because you feel you have to, the love is there and you both really care for each other. There have been little things that have influenced them in the past and while they both have a strong feeling for love. To him it just doesn't feel the same as it once did. I think also that maybe she doesnt always show her feelings. To me the lines... "Wishing all the best for you And now I will say goodbye Cause all the shit that we've been through Put wisdom in my eyes

    So walk away, don't turn around Cause I won't be standing here Cause all the lies that I've been living through Are becoming very clear And beauty thus become " ... to me these lines mean alot to me, it reminds me of breaking up with a girl, knowing it hurts her and it hurts you just as much but you think that this will be the best for both of you in the end.

    Song Meaning

    I've read these lyrics over and over again and to me it seems as if the relationship was fake all along. The girl led him on to believe that she had feelings for him and that she was all about him and in doing that he fell for her.

    Then you conned me into thinking That all I had was you The small insinuations Were cutting me through Cutting me through

    It also seems he has been hurt before and he deals with it by hiding his emotions and cutting himself off from the world.

    Is there something that you are trying to say Don't hold back now It's been a long time since I felt this way So don't hold back now

    I purposely forgot about Loving anyone Cause I'm the only one who has Who has been stepped upon

    Is there something that you are trying to say Cause I can take it Cause I grew up a man this way And if I'm hurt I'll shake it

    I'll crawl back into my cave That's how I'll make it Cause out of all this hurt we have Beauty thus become Beauty thus become

    Then he realized that she never really cared to begin with and he was used and he had to say goodbye. It also seems as though he's not mad but grew stronger and smarter from the experience.

    Wishing all the best for you And now I will say goodbye Cause all the shit that we've been through Put wisdom in my eyes

    So walk away, don't turn around Cause I won't be standing here Cause all the lies that I've been living through Are becoming very clear And beauty thus become

    And now I stand alone here Stronger than before And I'll never go back Never go back Never go

    I could be wrong but it makes since to me...

    This song is supposedly Tantric's last song ever...It sounds to me like the singer is dealing with a breakup with a girlfriend, but it could also be interpreted as dealing with the breakup of the band...whatever floats your boat =)

    This song is amazing and I certainly hope the band is not breaking up.. Especially since they are supposedly touring with Creed. I think moreso than a break up.. He's dealing with the fact that he blamed himself.... And then realized that it wasn't just his fault for losing what they had.. Now THAT is something that EVERYONE can relate to.

    Uhm, no, Tantric isn't breaking up. As to the song meaning: From the Tantric website, the song is about realizing a relationship simply won't work, even though the love is there.

    It might be about a relationship that wont work even though the love is there. But i think it is talking about a relationship where only one of them is in love..and the other doesnt feel the same way and doesnt know how to break it to the guy/girl.

    I think this song is deffinatly one of the best I've ever heard. What first drew me to the song was not the lyrics, however. It was the music. I think that they really sound great with the music/notes/ect and I also think the dynamics are great. They really did a good job of expressing themselves in this song.

    It means different things to different people, depending on your experinces and the way u live your life. I believe that its about a relationship between two people or a group of people. It apears to me like the writer is feeling the same thing as the other person in the relationship, but does not want to edmidt it. I believe he is trying to say that if the relationship is no more, then he will hide his feelings and he will "craw back in my cave" and shake his pain off, make it seem like it does not matter what happens to him.

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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.
Album art
Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
