(Shh)

Here, somewhere in the heart of me
There is still a part of me that cares

And I'll, I'll still take the best you've got
Even though I'm sure it's not the best for me

When you're born a lover
Born to suffer
Like all soul sisters and soul brothers

I, I can see the danger signs
They only help to underline your beauty

I'm not looking for an easy ride
True happiness cannot be tried so easily

When you're born a lover
You're born to suffer
Like all soul sisters and soul brothers
Like all soul sisters and soul brothers

You can take your time
I'll be waitin' in line
You don't even have to give me the time of day

When you're born a lover
You're born to suffer
Like all soul sisters and soul brothers
Like all soul sisters and soul brothers
Like all soul sisters and soul brothers
Like all soul sisters and soul brothers

(Shh)

    I think this song is about getting into a relationship and realizing that you won't always get your way. As it says, lovers are "born to suffer", meaning they'll make sacrifices for the one they love in order to make them happy.

    My Interpretation

    I think this song is about someone's relationship with a prostitute. They are always happy to come over for another session, but like all lovers (especially in this line of work), they are "born to suffer" and must make the most of what they're given.

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

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.
