She paints her nails and she don't know
He's got her best friend on the phone
She'll wash her hair
His dirty clothes are all he gives to her
And he's got posters on the wall
Of all the girls he wished she was
And he means everything to her

Her boyfriend, he don't know
Anything about her
He's too stoned, Nintendo
I wish that I could make her see
She's just the flavor of the week

It's Friday night and she's all alone
He's a million miles away
She's dressed to kill
But the TV's on
He's connected to the sound
And he's got pictures on the wall
Of all the girls he's loved before
And she knows all his favorite songs

Her boyfriend, he don't know
Anything about her
He's too stoned, Nintendo
I wish that I could make her see
She's just the flavor of the week

Yeah

Her boyfriend, he don't know
Anything about her
He's too stoned, he's too stoned
He's too stoned, he's too stoned

Her boyfriend, he don't know
Anything about her
He's too stoned, Nintendo
I wish that I could make her see
She's just the flavor of the week

Yeah she's the flavor of the week
But she makes me weak

    i love the pun at the end with week/weak ... teehee

    this song speaks to anyone who has pined away for a certain someone who is taken by another someone who just doesn't seem worthy. damn those unworthy significant others!

    A guy really wants this girl and dares for her, but she doesn't seem to realise she's wiv the wrong guy. Its about how unfair life/love are. :(

    this has been my fav. song 4ever! since i 1st heard it on the radio.A girl is going out with this guy and the guy is just a player. Anouther guy, her friend, or @ least someone that like her wants her to see she is just being used and he will dump her in a week or so. 'It's Friday night and she's all alone He's a million miles away She's just dressed to kill The TV's on He's connected to the sounds. ' I think its like she comes over or he goes to her house and she is dressed all nice and wants to talk, but he doesnt pay a bit of attention 2 her.

    not bad for a former member of Veruca Salt, eh? i enjoy this song a lot. "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World reminds me of ths song for some odd, disjointed reason...

    where'd the nintendo come from?... I mean, what does it mean? I always thought it was 'too stoned to know'..

    The acoustic version of this is really good.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

The way this song speaks to me🥺🥺when I sing it I feel like I relate

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.
