To be the one to swallow my pride I'll try but make no promises and before I go off to collect myself please don't give up while there's time

to be the one to swallow my pride I'll try and make no promises I'll wash myself of that feeling while I'm still wet and before I go off to collect myself please don't give up

while there's time my goal is to gain the courage and smile for a while

if I'm the first to open my arms and try well I've done mine I have no regrets I wasn't forced into this so it's all right

to be the one to laugh at my pride I'll try and make no promises I'll wash myself of that feeling while I'm still wet I'm trying to make the best of my nonsensse before I go of to collect myself please don't give up

    I first heard this song from an ex-gf of mine who described this song as a good example of our lives and relations. That was 3 years ago. Fast forward to now. I'm 17 and now I know the song is true. I miss the woman I love(my ex Kat) and if I had swallowed my pride as this song puts it I would still be with her. Thus the song asks for their loved ones to not give up on them while fess up to their faults.

    That's my personal belief.

    I tend to be wrong lots of times...

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

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”

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.
