I let you go, let you go, like a dozen balloons
Without even thinking
I didn't know, now I know, it was much too soon
It was much too soon
Why can't you call and say you miss me
The time we wasted just becomes history
Why can't you call and say you need me
The words I want to hear deceive me

Who's sorry now
Who's sorry now
Who's sorry
I know you're right
You're always right
So turn out the light
Who's sorry now

We'll never know, never know if all we had wasn't true
With me and you
Never really knew if right now was much too soon
It was much too soon
Why can't you call and say you miss me
The time we wasted just becomes history
Why can't you call and say you need me
The words you want to hear deceive me

Who's sorry now
Who's sorry now
Who's sorry
I know you're right
You're always right
So turn out the light

I wish she could tell me now
Where she has been
Where have you been?
Now that she's let me out
I only want back in
Why can't you call and say you need me
The time we wasted just becomes history
Why can't you call and say you miss me
The words you want to hear deceive me
Deceive me
Deceive me

Who's sorry now
Who's sorry now
Who's sorry
I know you're right
You're always right
So turn out the light
Who's sorry now
Who's sorry now
Who's sorry
Who's sorry
Who's sorry
Who's sorry
Who's sorry now

    I can\'t believe that no one has posted a comment on this song - it\'s sooo great! The opening riff is a classic and the bridge is sooo cool! This song NEVER gets old I swear. This song is about wanting to be with a girl, but she was never interested or didn\'t know and now she\'s with a jerk who treats her bad, but you know you would\'ve treated her better if you had her. Great song!!!

    NOTE: This track can also be found on the Scary Movie 2 Soundtrack.

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.

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,

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.

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.
