Waiting here watching VH1, Counting Crows is playing "Round Here"
And I'm not having fun because you're not here with me
three more years-six more days to go until I see you again and here I sit alone
one more time around it's not time for me to go let me wallow just this once
and drown my sorrows in this glass
so I try to get my mind off her but it's not working tonight
I wait for her letters and dream we're together one more time
I can't remember the last time because it's been a long time since I've cried like this
Back long before we even met somehow I knew the sound of your voice when you first said
Those words in the classroom and when you harassed me I was glad because it was from you
Before I even knew

    This is definetly one of my all time favorite songs and I couldn't even tell you why exactly. I mean sure I love the lyrics and the music but it grabs me in some way that very few songs do, there is so much sincere emotion in it. But anyways No Motiv is DEFINETLY one of the best bands out there and its amazing that there are so few postings for No Motiv, you guys rock who have posted already.

    This is a really good song. I think it's kinda weird how the day I hear it, I cry and then I heard the "it's been a long time since I've cried like this " line.

    And yeah, sbailey85, people like that piss me off a lot too.

    You're an idiot, sbailey85, No Motiv is not even close to Emo. Stop trying to talk about what you know nothing about and take your retarded comments elsewhere, No Motiv is too good to have people like you posting comments like that on their lyrics.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
