Voy a dejar
Que mi guitarra diga todo lo que yo
No se decir por mi
O quizás deba esperar
A que el insulto del reloj
Acabe de planear mi fin
Duelen tanto las sonrisas
Cuesta un mundo respirar
Es que no tenerte aquí ya me hace mal

Me sigue rodeando
La sombra de ti
Y siguen rodando por ahí
Todas las palabras que dijimos
Y los besos que nos dimos
Como siempre
Hoy estoy
Pensando en ti

Debes saber
Que hay pedazos de tu boca sin querer
Regados por aquí
Y que tropiezo cada día sin pensar
Con un viejo recuerdo mas
Y alguna nueva historia gris
Si no puedo estar contigo
Ya no puedo estar sin ti
Cada vez se hace mas duro ser feliz

Me sigue rodeando
La sombra de ti
Y siguen rodando por ahí
Todas las palabras que dijimos
Y los besos que nos dimos
Como siempre
Hoy estoy
Pensando en ti

Todas las palabras que dijimos
Y los besos que nos dimos
Como siempre
Hoy estoy
Pensando en ti

    This and inevitable are my favorite songs of Shakira.. The truth is, that her music in spanish is sooo much deeper than the one that she writes in english. Sombra de ti, is literally "shadow of you" pretty much talks about a true love that a person has and that this memory and fixation of that person haunts you all the time when you are going to start to love again debes saber (you should know) que hay pedazos de tu boca sin querer (that there are pieces of your mouth by mistake) regados por aquí (thrown around here) y que tropiezo cada día sin pensar (and I trip over them everyday without noticing) con un viejo recuerdo mas (with another old memory) y alguna nueva historia gris (and a new grey story) si no puedo estar contigo (if I can't be with you) ya no puedo estar sin ti (I can't be without you) cada vez se hace mas duro ser feliz (each time its harder for me to be happy) It just resembles the deep impact a person can have on you to the point of not letting you open up to other people easily..

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
