It's a big blue Spanish sky
Lay on my back and watch clouds roll by
I've got the time to wonder why
She left me
It's a slow sad Spanish song
I knew the words but I sang them wrong
The one I love has left and gone
Without me

Now she's gone, our world has changed
Watching a blue sky, thinking of rain

It's a slow sad Spanish song
I knew the words but I sang them wrong
The one that I love has left and gone
Without me

It's a big blue Spanish sky
I lay on my back and watch clouds roll by
I only wish I could make you cry
Like I do
Like I do
Like I do

Ah

    Such a beautiful song. Judging by the two comments in 6 years, I think this song doesn't enjoy the popularity it deserves.

    It seems to be about a man who has lost his loved one and is lying down somewhere (in Mexico probably) looking at the sky feeling depressed.

    Quote: "in Mexico probably"

    I'd say.. Spain? :D

    Besides that I agree, beautiful, raw emotional song. I love the pace and the straightforwardness. This should deserve more attention.

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.
