Damn, Maybe they're all right
You won't go nowhere if your high all night
I'm on a dead end street
'Cause I'm still gettin' rocked smokin' weed
Yeah whatever punk try to fight this fight
I'm still suckin' down beam by the morning light
Said, damn baby, to the stranger next to me
If I'm gonna live the good life
I gotta keep the dream
Lately I'm feelin right at home
Got the means to be on my own
Man I'm drivin' down sweet leaf road
Keep the sabbath dream alive

Man, people keep tellin' me
It's real, real cool suffering
In a go nowhere, end of the line philosophy
But why not be all you can be
I said, damn baby, to the stranger next to me
If I'm gonna live the good life
You gotta keep the dream
Lately I'm feelin' right at home
Got the means to be on my own
Man I'm drivin' down sweet leaf road
Keep the sabbath dream alive

Yeah when I die I'm gonna send
An invitation to you all
Yeah when I die there's gonna be
An electric funeral
The all night groove,
The reckless mood
I can't settle down,
I've seen the truth
I want to say it like it is,
I gotta keep it like it be
Ya say I'm livin' like a kid,
I think I'm livin' honestly

Ya say I'm wastin' my time
Drivin' life in cruise
But I'm the lord of this world
I'm the one who'll choose
I said, damn baby, to the stranger next to me
If you want to live the good life
You gotta keep the dream
Lately I'm feelin' right at home
Got the means to be on my own
Man I'm drivin' down sweet leaf road
Keep the sabbath dream alive
Yeah when I die I'm gonna send
An invitation to you all
Yeah when I die there's gonna be
An electric funeral

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

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/

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.
