Sattelite night is how it all starts
Over horizon dreams
And then you appeared dressed in black
You drew the fear out of me
As we looked out to the sea
Freezing in waters so blue
3AM seems just fine
The nightcrawlers have left the bay
Could I have so much more to say to you?
Did you notice?
Fate seemed shy an hour ago
Look where that hour got us now
Slowly..I'll wait for you holding all honesty
As I watch the sea
When you leave here
Take in all the sounds of ocean waves just glistening
We could just run away
We were made for this anyway
An I.F.O. could steal us now
We'd leave the beach to soar against the night sky
Over the high tides
Could these hours add on to our life stories?

Now it's just another day without the sand beneath our feet
I'll never let it go
I'll keep repeating it all over and over and over
Heaven's skies in your eyes
You know they fit just fine
I heard that song today it just bled of goodbye
That summer's gone
But the late night hours will still be worn
And on the weekends out with your friends
Will you remember that mindnight wind aching?
Or the suprise before the sunrise
It's just every night I miss you so well...

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
