I'm in the sky tonight
There I can keep by your side
Watching the wide world riot
And hiding out
I'll be coming home next year

Into the sun we climb
Climbing our wings will burn white
Everyone strapped in tight
We'll ride it out
I'll be coming home next year

Come on, get on, get on
Take it till life runs out
No one can find us now
Living with our heads underground

Into the night we shine
Lighting the way we glide by
Catch me if I get too high
When I come down
I'll be coming home next year

I'm in the sky tonight
There I can keep by your side
Watching the whole world wind
Around and round
I'll be coming home next year

Come on, get on, get on
Take it till I fall down
No one can find us now
Living with our heads underground

I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
Everything's all right up here
And if I come down
I'll be coming home next year

Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
Everything's all right up here
And if I come down
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year

I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year

I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year

    This song used to be the theme song to the show 'Ed' on NBC. I really loved it as the theme, until this season when they switched to whatever shitty song they use now. Copyright issues, apparently, but still...I love this song.

    You need to see the video to truly aprreciate this song. I think its about the use of the space race to cloud the events that were shaking America at the time, namely Vietnam. "Living with our heads underground" - ignoring what's really important. The video mixes tranquil scene's from space and the astronauts having a fun time with scenes of Vietnam, anti war rallies, explosions. Showing that everything may be fine and calm in space but down on earth things aren't as tranquil.

    To me it means a lot, my fiance is a U.S. Marine and is on the Presidential Helicopter Squadron and flies quite a bit. I know he is just a portion of all that is guarding our country, but yet he is too. Therefore, it means a lot when it says "Then I can keep by your side". Another part is "coming home next year" because he very seldom gets to come home. I know this is not what the song means, about a Marine and his fiance, but that's what it means to me. I love you Howeman!

    I love this song it is one of my favorites but I just want to know, Does anybody else out there believe that on the TINLTL cd they sort of mess up the song a little when they repeat it again at the end? It is still a great song though.

    This was a perfect coming home song for me a while ago when I went to Australia to study for a year. It fit so well as i was playing it on the airplane, flying over the wide Pacific ocean for 17 hours.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Midnight
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.
