What's my name
(blowing back on this marry jane I'm analyzin the game)
And the game done chose me
(to bring pain to pussy niggaz and pussy hoes, its one in the same)
Ever since you told me
(there's only room for 2, I've been making less room for you)
Not only god could hold me
(hug my, love me, judge me, the only man that help is above me, holla)

I met so many men its like they're all the same
My appetite for loving is now my hunger pain
And when I'm feeing sexy who's gonna comfort me?
My only problem is their insecurity

(tired of being alone) yeah yeah
(arguing on the phone) yeah yeah
(telling all you're friends)yeah yeah
(you'll never understand)my love

'Cause I'm real(the way you walk the way you move the way you talk)
'Cause I'm real(the way you stare the way you look you're style you're hair)
'Cause I'm real(the way you smile the way you smell it drives me wild)
'Cause I'm real and I can't go on without you

Girl, I've been thinkin' bout this relationship
And I want to know is this as good as it gets
'Cause we've been through the worst times and the best times
But it was our time, even if it was part-time
My baby lookin' at me, smilin' at me, laughin' like we wasn't happy
But not knowin', ever growin' and we're gettin' married
Hard lovin' and straight thuggin'
Bitch, I ain't doin' this for nuttin'
I'm here to get it poppin', hoppin, let's ride up in the Benz
Hair blowin' in the wind, sun glistenin' off my skin, hey
I'm nasty, heh, you know me
But you still don't mess with your baby

'Cause I'm real(the way you walk the way you move the way you talk)
'Cause I'm real(the way you stare the way you look you're style you're hair)
'Cause I'm real(the way you smile the way you smell it drives me wild)
'Cause I'm real and I can't go on without you

Now people loving me and hating me treating me ungratefully
But not knowin' that they ain't making or breaking me
My life I live it to the limit and I love it
Now I can breath again baby now I can breath again

Now people screaming what's the deal with me and so and so
I tell the bitches mind ya biz but they don't hear me though
My life I live it to the limit and I love it
Now I can breath again baby now I can breath again

(tired of being alone) yeah yeah
(arguing on the phone) yeah yeah
(telling all you're friends)yeah yeah
(nigga don't understand)my love

'Cause I'm real(the way you walk the way you move the way you talk)
'Cause I'm real(the way you stare the way you look you're style you're hair)
'Cause I'm real(the way you smile the way you smell it drives me wild)
'Cause I'm real and I can't go on without you,and I can't go on without you

    This is my favorite song on the punk goes pop cd. It's hilarious that they didn't change the genders at all, it's still like J.Lo's singing it. The Further Seems Forever song is really good too.

    This song is GREAT. I would never have guessed in a million years that it was a J-Lo song (the first time I heard it was the other night when I saw TSL live.) Anyway yeah they did an awesome job turning a stupid pop song into a great punk 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.

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
