Amiga mía, lo sé, sólo vives por él
Que lo sabe también, pero él no te ve
Como yo, suplicarle a mi boca que diga
Que me ha confesado entre copas
Que es con tu piel con quien sueña de noche
Y que enloqueces con cada botón que
Te desabrochas pensando en sus manos
Él no te ha visto temblar, esperando
Una palabra, algún gesto un abrazo
Él no te ve como yo suspirando
Con los ojitos abiertos de par en par
Escucharme nombrarle
!Ay, amiga mía! Lo sé y él también

Amiga mía, no sé qué decir
Ni qué hacer para verte feliz
Ojalá pudiera mandar en el alma o en la libertad
Que es lo que a él le hace falta
Llenarte los bolsillos de guerras ganadas
De sueños e ilusiones renovadas
Yo quiero regalarte una poesía
Tú piensas que estoy dando las noticias

Amiga mía, ojala algún día escuchando mi canción
De pronto, entiendas que lo que nunca quise fue contar tu historia
Porque pudiera resultar conmovedora
Pero, perdona, amiga mía
No es inteligencia ni sabiduría
Esta es mi manera de decir las cosas
No es que sea mi trabajo, es que es mi idioma

Y amiga mía, princesa de un cuento infinito
Amiga mía, tan sólo pretendo que cuentes conmigo
Amiga mía, a ver si uno de estos días
Por fin aprendo
A hablar sin tener que dar tantos rodeos
Que toda esta historia me importa
Porque eres mi amiga, oh no

Amiga mía, lo sé, sólo vives por él
Que lo sabe también, pero él no te ve
Como yo, suplicarle a mi boca que diga
Que me ha confesado entre copas
Que es con tu piel con quien sueña de noche

Amiga mía, no sé qué decir
Ni qué hacer para verte feliz
Ojalá pudiera mandar en el alma o en la libertad
Que es lo que a él le hace falta
Llenarte los bolsillos de guerras ganadas
De sueños e ilusiones renovadas
Yo quiero regalarte una poesía
Tú piensas que estoy dando las noticias

Amiga mía, princesa de un cuento infinito
Amiga mía, tan sólo pretendo que cuentes conmigo
Amiga mía, a ver si uno de estos días
Por fin aprendo
A hablar sin tener que dar tantos rodeos
Que toda esta historia me importa
Porque eres mi amiga
Amiga mía, princesa de un cuento infinito
Amiga mía, tan sólo pretendo que cuentes conmigo

Amiga mía, a ver si uno de estos días
Por fin aprendo
A hablar sin tener que dar tantos rodeos
Que toda esta historia me importa
Porque eres mi amiga, oh no, yeah

    The singer is telling his friends story which is : The friend is in love with a guy but the guy either has a girlfriend or a he is married "Amiga mía, no se que decir, ni que hacer para verte feliz. ojalá pudiera mandar en el alma o en la libertad, que es lo que a el le hace falta" So the singer know both sides of the story what she is going going thru and what he is going thru. And he apologizes for telling her story by a song:"Amiga mía, ojalá algún día escuchando mi canción, de pronto, entiendas que lo que nunca quise fue contar tu historia porque pudiera resultar conmovedora. pero, perdona, amiga mía, no es inteligencia, ni es sabiduría; esta es mi manera de decir las cosas. no es que sea mi trabajo, es que es mi idioma."...........I LOVE this song.

    The Chorus translated more or less:

    My friend, princess of a neverending tale, my friend, i just hope you count on me, my friend, to see if one of these days finally i learn to speak without beating about the bush ¿? that all this story i mind because you are my friend

    Actually in a recent interview, Alenjandro revealed the meaning of this song: He said that the girl was indeed a very good friend of his, and was really in love with a mutual friend, but was too afraid of coming close to him.She was always asking Alejandro about the guy and if he was interested in her too: -"pero el no te ve como yo, suplicarle a mi boca que diga que me ha confesado entre copas, que es con tu piel con quien sueña de noche"- Alejandro helped her for a while but the girl was not making any progress and Alejandro became unconfortable with the situation. -"Amiga mía, no se que decir, ni que hacer para verte feliz"- Sadly the guy was never interested in her -"ojalá pudiera mandar en el alma o en la libertad, que es lo que a el le hace falta"-, and Alejandro knew it, so he decided to write her this song. This is a great song, and I was cought in a situation like this one too, so this song was perfect for me.

    I think in this song alejandro is in love with a friend that has another love interest. Lyrically this song is perfect. There's nothing better then a spanish love song. Love song of any kind.....;0)

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.

Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
