Juliet's trying to find out what she wants,
But she don't know
Experience has got her down
Look this direction, I know it's not perfection,
It's just me
I want to bring you up again now!

I'm losing what's left of my dignity
A small price to I'll pay to see that you're happy
Forget all the disappointments you have faced
Open up your worried world and let me in

Juliet's crying, cause now she's realizing,
Love can be, filled with pain and distrust.
I know I am crazy, and a bit lazy
But I will try to bring you up again some how!

    I love the fact that he chooses the name Juilet. She's looking for a flawless Romeo, when really the person who truly loves has always been right there.

    Green Day lyrics are so underrated.

    actually he chose the name juliet because he wrote the song for a girl named juliet. nothing to do with the play.

    I have had this happen, I played the nice guy act and shit. But she went and got hurt over and over, and after awhile I quit trying, because she never noticed, and never will.

    This song is basically what I'm going through right now. A girl has a fear of getting hurt because she's had a bad experience in the past. The guy wants her to be his, and is trying as hard as he can to make her happy and let her know that he's not going to hurt her.

    The meaning of this song is so obvious. It's obviously about a girl who has been hurt before, and some guy wants her and he's trying to get it to her that he isn't going to do anything that will make her upset or hurt her.

    The chorus makes me think of Billie adopting someone. Someone who got abused in his/her previous house and has been put up for adoption. SO now billie wants to take him/her in, but the kid is too scared they'll get hurt again

    I'm losing whats left of my dignity A small price i'll pay to see that your happy Forget all the disappointments you have faced Open up your worried world and let me in

    It sounds like billie would do anything for the kid to accept him.

    Thats totally wrong, i know, but the chorus just reminds me of that

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/

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.
