Your eyes are all wet now
You know that I'm lying
I swear I was only protecting your heart

But there are some reasons
And also some pictures
Which if you saw they would rip you apart
And I won't watch you cry
Goodbye, I'm an asshole

I'm almost a tall guy
And fairly good looking
So people - they trust me but sometimes they're wrong
I have often wondered
Which one was the taller
My old Alexander or Kubla Khan
And would they watch you cry?
Goodbye, I'm an asshole

I was a pig
And never no good
Now you can see through the streams in your eyes every nickel is wood

Your lines are all fading
Your model's all last year
I am still a young man and I need a new car

Your friends will all hate me
But I know I'm smarter
I'm in love with a fan, and she thinks I'm a star
And she will never
So I won't ever
I won't watch you cry
Goodbye
I won't watch you cry
Goodbye, I'm an asshole

    It's weird. I almost want to feel sorry for this guy who admits that he is an asshole to women. I guess that this song is full of regret. He's knows how manipulative and how much of a coward he is...and hates those traits about himself. Instead of changing for the better, he chooses to surround himself with people who only admire him on a very superficial level. Relationships without substance. A life without substance.

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.

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.

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.
