Bright light city
You're her religion
Superstars in their own private movie
Play just like children

Lies that take her
To places she's never seen
A lil' kiss and tell of it all
To her it seems so obscene

She's so pretty
Her hair is a mess
We all love her
To that we confess

She has a halo
We really do adore her
She has a halo
Can we touch her

For their blindness
She sees much further
Like on a wide-screen viewing
Going down on her

She's so pretty
Her hair is a mess
We all love her
To that we confess

She has a halo
We really do adore her
She has a halo
Can we touch her

She believes in everything
And she believes in nothing, in everything

She has a halo (she believes in everything)
We really do adore her
And she has a halo (and she)
Can we touch her

For she has a halo (for she has a halo)
We really do adore her
She has a halo (she has a halo)
Can we touch her

    I always thought this song was about a hollywood actress but I watched a tv programme where Sharleen told the story behind this song. Sharleen and her boyfriend at the time were not getting on too well and he penned a song about her titled Halo and sent it to Sharleen. She wasn't impressed and thought right i'll show you how to write a song and that was how it came about. So i think the feelings behind the song are just this is me, thats how you do it, so 2 fingers up!

    This song to me is all about putting someone on a pedestal and worshipping everything they say or do. It's about caring for that special person so much that you almost give them God them like status and can see no faults in anything they do. Great song.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental 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.
