You've got a great car
Yeah, what's wrong with it today?
I used to have one too
Baby, oh, come and have a look
I really love your hairdo, yeah
I'm glad you like mine too
See we're lookin' pretty cool
Look at ya

So, what do you do?
Oh, yeah, I wait tables too
No, I haven't heard your band
'Cause you guys are pretty new
But if you dig
On vegan food
Well, come over to my work
I'll have 'em cook you something
That you'll really love

'Cause I like you
Yeah, I like you
And I'm feelin' so bohemian like you
Yeah, I like you
Yeah, I like you
And I feel, whoa, woo

Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh

Wait, who's that guy?
Just hangin' at your pad
He's lookin' kinda (bummed)
Yeah, you broke up that's too bad
I guess it's fair
If he always pays the rent
And he doesn't get bent
About sleepin' on the couch when I'm there

'Cause I like you
Yeah, I like you
And I'm feelin' so bohemian like you
Yeah, I like you
Yeah, I like you
And I feel, whoa, woo

Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh

I'm getting wise and I'm feelin' so bohemian like you
It's you that I want, so please
Just a casual, casual easy thing
Is it? It is for me
And I like you
Yeah, I like you
And I like you, I like you, I like you
I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you
And I feel whoa, woo

Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh

    it's about a guy picking up a girl - thinks he's smooth, thinks he's playing the girl. Turns out, the girl is a complete maneater and he doesn't even realise it. In 2 months time, he will be the poor sap sleeping on the couch, not getting any, while this girl brings home a succession of guys and bangs them right under his nose.

    And the sweet thing is that he won't be able to complain or looked bummed - not even a little - when he is eaten up with jealousy, because of his own rules - Mr "Casual, Casual easy thing".

    Turns out love and sex is never really a casual easy thing. Someone always gets hurt. And Mr Smooth here doesn't realise that it's going to be him.

    Well I'm from Portland Oregon where this band is from and I think The Dandy Warhols and this song in particular represent this town far better than some other bands that have made it big out of this town (Everclear please take note) Whenever I hear this song I always think of NW 21st and 23rd which are like the sort of rich bohemian neighborhoods here and all the coffee shops where the rich kids go to meet other rich kids...oh god I'm babbling I'm gonna shut up now

    Just a little bit more than inspired by the Rolling Stones, don'tcha think? From the whoo-hoo-ooos to the guitar riff, it all seems like the Stones... which is definitely not a bad thing! Rock over London, rock on Chicago!

    This song rocks. It's such a catchy tune, and while the lyrics are kinda generic it puts a different spin on them.

    I think there is a mistake in the lyrics posted though, Ive always thought the last line of the first verse was 'See where looking pretty cool will get you" as opposed to what's posted.

    Worldly perspective... this song was made big in Spain by the Vodafone commercials. These commercials really emphasized the importance of having fun, which in turn emphasized that meaning in the song.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
