ONLY TIME interpretation

The song focuses about love. How you will be able to know if its the real one. How your

passes will you able to move on and forget that love. So only time could tell what the
future holds and only time could heal all wounds.

5. What is main message of black eyed peas' song where is the love? Discuss
Black eyed peas song is an eye opener of what is currently happening in the world:
Violence cause by terrorism attack like what happen to Syria and some countries,
discrimination among races and religion, abusing of freedom, no equality , wars
between rival countries. A lot of innocent people and children have died because of
senseless act of violence. The song is looking for loves absence in everyones heart.
Why these things happen with no apparent reason at all. Black eyes peas are asking
humanity among us, to spread love as what God teach us, to love one another because
we are all Gods creations. If there is LOVE there is PEACE.

6. What is your interpretation to Taylor Swift's song Blank Space?

The song blank space is about a woman who knew how to deal with a guy who is a
player on love. The girl in the song says she could play along with love with a guy as long
as he wants but must bear the consequences of the game.

But during an interview with Taylor Swift , she told the story of the song is about what is
the perception of some people about her personal life especially on lovelife. The song is
somehow her way to protect and defend herself about the wrong impression about her.
7. Can you consider the Jessie j's price tag represents modern day society?
Yes. If you look all around people are busy to work to earn money. They needed it to sustain
their everyday needs. Some even work almost 24/7 to earn extra. That why they forget how
to live , what is life all about. What make someone to be truly happy. Some families cant
even see or bond with each other even though they live in one roof. Thats how money has
eaten them because without it they cannot move on with their life. But in some way we
could understand that life today is really tough, and money makes it easier to live.

Everything we need or want has a cost value like food, clothing, shelter etc... You need
money to finance it all. But the main point is to live simply, live a life not for money alone.
