It was a day just like this
In a life of our times
Shrugging signs there's no chance for us
It's not mine to decide

You never listened to what i said
You never thought I'd succeed
And though I've given you all I can
You show no faith in me

And I remember, And I recall
And I can see that nothing's changed at all
Though we falter, we don't have to fall
And I can see that nothing's changed at all

Even when I was young
And the pressure was on
You always told me to do my thing
So what the hell went wrong

And I remember, And I recall
And I can see that nothing's changed at all
Though we falter, we don't have to fall
And I can see that nothing's changed at all

An outcast coming home, opinions stay the same
They'll spit them out and spin me right back through the door
The louder that we scream, the more invisible we seem
Is it gonna last forever Now I'm learning the lies
From the skies where they reign
Can't find shelter for myself
And you're all to blame

And I remember, And I recall
And I can see that nothing's changed at all
Though we falter, we don't have to fall
And I can see that nothing's changed at all

    I think parents not understanding you totally sums up what that song's about. Parents not believing in their children and even after one little screw up, parents blow up in their kids faces, but don't even give their kids credit for trying their best. AWESOME SONG!

    i agree it's about fighting with a parent... and by saying "nothing's changed at all", it means they were apart for some time and when he saw the parent again he treated him as badly as he always had. ("you never listened to what i said etc).

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/
