i won't be the one to wait outside your door watch it all fall down around your head i won't be that one anymore so shine on me the sun to white out my whole world catch it on my tongue these words once said that i won't be that one no not anymore there's more than a million questions i could ask but it wouldn't matter at all so take me and tear me open i won't bleed until you're gone i don't understand your actions

    HERE'S MY INTERPRETATION.... THE SINGER IS TIRED OF WATCHING THIS RELATIONSHIP FALL APART. THE "SHINE ON ME THE SUN, TO WHITE OUT MY WHOLE WORLD..." MEANS BLIND ME WITH FUN HAPPY TIMES SO I WONT THINK ABOUT THE BAD RELATIONSHIP. "THERES A MILLION QUESTIONS I COULD ASK BUT IT WOULDNT MATTER..." MEANS EVEN GETTING ANSWERS WOULDNT HELP THE SITUATION AND MY FAVORITE PART "TAKE ME AND TEAR ME OPEN, I WONT BLEED UNTIL YOU'RE GONE...I DONT UNDERSTAND YOUR ACTIONS." THIS PART DESCRIBES A PAST RELATIONSHIP FOR ME TO A TEE. OBVIOUSLY, HE WANTS HER TO BE COMPLETELY OPEN WITH HIM, SHE DOESNT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HURTING HIM...HE'LL WAIT UNTIL SHES GONE TO BREAK DOWN. HE DOESNT UNDERSTAND....MAYBE MIXED SIGNALS?? THAT IS JUST MY INTERPREATION BUT THIS SONG IS FAIRLY EASY TO INTERPRET. SOMEBODY ELSE POST. GREAT SONG!!

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.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

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.
