Full of greed you sell your soul
Full of pride a heavy load
You eat yourself, gluttony
Resent yourself you envy me

Everything turns into wrath
You lust yourself to death
Deep fears that drive us
Hid beneath disguises
Judge the world within
Forgive my deadly sins

Procrastination always giving up
Something better comes to interrupt
Cast your verdict down to me
Spare me your bleeding sympathy
Only care how you appear
Clearly see you can't see clear
Deep fears that drive us
Hid beneath disguises
Judge the world within
Forgive my deadly sins
Deep fears that drive us
Hid beneath disguises
Judge the world within
Forgive my deadly sins

Greed, gluttony, pride, envy,
Wrath, sloth, lust, deadly seven
Seven deadly sins of mine
On every street
And corner lie
These seven deadly sins of mine

On every street
And corner lie
These seven deadly sins of mine
On every street
And corner lie
These seven deadly sins
On every street
And corner lie
These seven deadly sins of mine
On every street
And corner lie
These seven deadly sins of mine
On every street
And corner lie
These seven deadly sins of mine
These seven deadly sins of mine
Deadly sins of mine

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
