I get this feeling as you walk away
A million hearts will break in two
But they don't know the games that you can play
So they will always follow you

Every time you move, everybody grooves
I can't help thinking it's alright (alright)
You just gotta walk, see the people talk
I like to watch you party

'cause everybody wants ya
When everybody sees ya
The world is full of dreamers
But I'm a great believer
And I'm no fool, 'cause I got you

I see the way you act like you don't know
There's something 'bout your attitude
And it don't matter how far you go
'Cause I'm the one that's going home with you

You just gotta bump, see the people jump
I can't help thinking it's alright (alright)
When you do your thing everybody swings
They like to watch you party

'Cause everybody wants ya
When everybody sees ya
The world is full of dreamers
But I'm a great believer
And I'm no fool, 'cause I got you

I just wind you up and let you go
And I watch you in wonder
To see the look upon your face
I'd say you already know

'Cause everybody wants ya
When everybody sees ya
The world is full of dreamers
But I'm a great believer

'Cause everybody wants ya
When everybody sees ya
The world is full of dreamers
But I'm a great believer
And I'm no fool, 'cause I got you

    There's a person that is loved by everyone and everyone wants to follow in his footsteps. He's highly respected and the toast of every group, party, whatever there is. But there's this other person that is kinda botherd by it, which is the person singing the song, but they can't shake the feeling that it's okay that everyone wants to be like him cause he's not harming anyone. This person can see right through him and she can see what he's really like, and she's not falling for his tricks like everyone else is. This song is I guess kinda like "Everybody's fool" by Evanescence but on a lighter note. I also get the feeling that the person singing this song had a relationship with this popular guy when she sings, "But they don't know the games that you can play" as if she knows what games they are and he played them with her. So she really knows what he's all about but the others are blind to his true personality.

    I don't feel like there is a hidden meaning here. But it sounds like they are describing your typical high school jock who owns the school. In the second verse, it gives a hint of attitude towards the jock/hot shot guy. I don't know. . .I hope this doesn't come off as me just spouting off.

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.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
