And here we go again,
We've taken it to the end,
With every waking moment,
We face this silent torment

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

Darkness is all I want to see
I could never put in to words
What it is you mean to me

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you
Love you, love you, love you

The candle is burning low
At the window to my soul
The reaper is at my door now
He's come to take me home

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

I'd sacrifice,
I'd sacrifice myself to you
Right here tonight
Because you know that I love you

I, I'd sacrifice

    this, like the majority of their songs, is a love song.

    I think it's about how him and the person he's in love with have reached the end of their relationship. They've torn eachother to shreds and there's nothing left of either of them to give anymore. So, now he's at a point of wanting to end his life. Not in a selfish way though, he means to sacrifice himself to his lover as a final token of his love for her.

    honestly, most of their songs are so overly dramatic they seem cheesy, but despite that, I really like this one, and I think it is one of their deeper ones.

    Love. He loves someone. He loves them to the end. And possibly they dont love him. But would show his love by killing himself, just to make them happy.

    Song Meaning

    The song, as Sean has stated in interviews, is about a relationship that has no future- it's not about abuse or anything else overtly negative. Just a relationship that will never happen, though the feelings are there.

    And AKitty0543, you clearly have very little exposure to LAM's music if you think they are all love songs. Jesus, why do people like you comment when you know nothing about the subject?

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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.
