When things are going down
And you want to pick it up
Why don't you try and do what I do
The way I know

To get you out of that slump is
To listen to music
That puts a smile on your face
I won't let you be down

So you better start jumping
'Cause you're making me ill
No one says when they grow up
They want to be an addict well,

I wouldn't have it another way
When things are going down
And you want to pick it up
Why don't you try and do what I do

I know some days you get dealt a bad hand
So listen to music
That puts a smile on your face
I won't let you be down

So you better start jumping
'Cause you're making me ill,
No one says when they grow up
They want to be an addict well,

I wouldn't have it another way
While your passing through my way
Give me some s-k-a
On my tonuue and in my veins,

I wouldn't have it another way
I'm only telling you once
I haven't told you before
That I can't stand people like you,

Thinking the way
I spend my time is all a shame,
You say we are all the same
But when you look at us you say

That could've been me
If I just followed my my dreams,
I'd rather do it now and regret it later,
Hey I wouldn't waste another day.

Why you tryin' to rule my world,
See the tables slowly turn
You're the one whose wasting their time
It's all a shame

But when you look at us you say
That could've been me
If I just followed my my dreams,
I'd rather do it now and regret it later,

Hey I wouldn't waste another day.
Why you tryin' to rule my world,
See the tables slowly turn
You're the one whose wasting their time

It's all a shame
You're all the same

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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,

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.
