I'll give you just a little of what you need
And then I take a little and now it seems
That everything is a lie and yet they try
To force it back up on you; what will
you do?
You think you're tougher than this -
you'll be dismissed
You think it's easy for me to believe
That every word has been said and
left for dead
My pride is bigger than that - remains
intact.
Now I take this
And I could care less
About your distress
I lie in the bed that I have made.
And now I'm coming for you -
what will you do?
This time I prove it to you -
follow through
And there is nowhere to hide that you
will find
This is the end of the line and it's you I
find.
Now I take this
And I could care less
About your distress
I lie in the bed that I have made.

    when ever i hear this song i think of Revenge.. . "now i take this and i could care less about your distress i lie in the bed that i have made."

    that reminds me of someone who will take revenge and doesnt care what the person says and they are ready for the consequenses... . but thats just my opinion. DKL rules

    Yes, yes, go insult me in places where I'm not so I'm less likely to come reply. The hallmark of a loser who's trying desperately to hide how pathetic he is. Just go on being a bitch if it makes you feel better about yourself, I'll try to be tolerant, out of pity.

    oh yes, while the hallmark of the loser is really in YOUR hands. since you basically try to act like you know everything but its obvious that you're beyond pathetic. but you keep trying to come off as the "good guy" here, you'll still remain to be a dumbass but i guess as long as it makes you feel alright, that's all that matter's I guess. Really though, you should shut the fuck up.

    wow. Anyways...back to the song.

    It may very well be about revenge. I just picture Cliff standing before someone that once meant a lot to him and saying "I told you so." LIke, "You could've been so much more, but look where your decisions got you." He knows he lost someone special, and has already started accepting that. Now he wants them to face their own f-ups.

    Just another man's interpretation.

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”

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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.
