Just give me a reason, some kind of sign
I'll need a miracle to help me this time
I heard what you said and I feel the same
I know in my heart that I'll have to change

Even the stars look brighter tonight
Nothing's impossible
I still believe in love at first sight
Nothing's impossible

How did we get to be this far apart?
How did we get to be this far apart?
I want to be with you, have something to share
I want to be here but I'm not there

Even the stars look brighter tonight
Nothing's impossible
I still believe in love at first sight
Nothing's impossible

Even the stars look brighter tonight
Nothing's impossible
And if you believe in love at first sight
Nothing's impossible

I still believe in love at first sight
Nothing's impossible

    I think Martin is trying to say that you don't have to expect everything out of life. You have to learn how to be independent and self assured to the thought that surprises come and go but its nothing new. Make your own life and expect nothing.

    I think it means even the most planned moments of ur life may drastically change within a second without any prior notice. Or nothing at all may happen. Also not to hold hopes up to high cuz things almost never turn out the way we want them to. So expect nothing.

    I love "Nothing". You know, I have always thought, as simple as it is, that this song could just be about being depressed. Utterly despondant and hollow. And/or the lines "What am I trying to do/What am I trying to say/I'm not trying to tell you/Anything you didn't know/When you woke up today" reinforces the feelings of low self-esteem and self worth that often accompany depression. Or it could have just been the gloomy state of mind that spurred the topics discussed in the song, which is not about being depressed, but more of what you have said, Mode000 and cheren28. I'm rather new to this band's music, so I assume you [other posters] know more about the band and their song meanings than I do. blegh, as for what I thought of this song's meaning, I'm just stating the obvious :o/

    Oh come on. Why everybody is digging out too much. It's simply nihilistic song. And a very good one. There's no meaning and purpose in life. Life doesn't tell you what to do by itself. Life doesn't advertise anything. There's no set of rules telling you what to do and what to expect. Pure nihilism.

    I laughed my ass of the first time I listened to it. Nevertheless it's one of Depeche Mode's best.

    This songs makes me think of vampires. A vampire singing about why this town is so perfect for them. Depressing, unassuming, and oblivious.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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/

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

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.
