She is sick of just chasing luck; looking for things based on a small chance that she may be lucky and find what she is looking for. She wants a change from this life, probably one where she can certainly have what she wants.

Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
But I've got a blank space baby
And I'll write your
Taylor Swift is known for writing songs about all her celebrity break-ups, and she is open about what when and who her songs are about. She is also known for having dated many people, hence the line 'Got a long list of ex-lovers'.

'They'll tell you I'm insane' is either referring to the general public saying Taylor's insane because of all of her exes.
'I've got a blank space baby, and I'll write your name'
Is saying she has a 'blank space' in her list of exes- she is single and ready for a relationship. She is also open that it probably won't work out.

I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
'Cause all the cool kids they seem to get it
This is a moving song about these people who want to be like the 'Cool Kids' (I ask the question 'Who really are the cool kids?'), this line illustrates the fact that the cool kids just 'get it', they get what it means to be 'cool', they get how to rub people the right and wrong way and most importantly, they get themselves.
A gif. from one of the most popular 'Cool Kids' movies- Mean Girls. The girl speaking is the 'Cool Girl.'

stand by, I will stand by you
If black is your brightest colors
If hurt is your only lover
When
Marlisa Punzalan (winner of Australian X Factor 2014) is singing what could be a love song about a friend (she said this in an interview) because she is only 15. This line is telling her friend that she will 'stand by them'- be there for them even when they are most desperate- 'When black is your brightest colour' to me is a beautiful lyric, because black isn't a bright colour at all, so it is saying that the person has no bright colours in their life (no happiness) and that their just holding on with what they can.
+6
Meaning
Brilliant song delivered by a very deserving X Factor winner. I think that this can be a love song, but because Marlisa is only 15, she says that she sings it as a song of friendship and dedication. I really do think that she has the life experience, because to young people (I'm 12), even the most small things can seem big before one puts them into perspective, and that is surely enough to sing a song from the heart. lus her voice is too amazing for me to care about that.

Paris to la over the night
All around the world just you and I
Nothing to fear
When you are near
In her mind, she goes from Paris to L.A. overnight. This is how in love she is with the person. The line 'Nothing to fear, when you are near' says that she feels safe whenever she is with him/her. This is a pretty standard love song lyric.

my superstar
But it's not what you are
You've been my superhero
Since I've lived in your shade
Every step that I made
Brought me nothing but zero

But I'm
I think that this is an unusual, but cool lyric. Ani Lorak is telling someone who has been helping her (presumably her boyfriend/girlfriend) that she's been living in their shade, feeling insignificant and like no one notices her because her 'superhero' is there to steal the limelight. The line 'Brought me nothing but zero' is saying that it has brought her nothing, that she really hasn't been gaining anything from this relationship.

Use your imagination
I'm not easy but I'm true
This line is more self explanatory than it seems. She's asking him to figure her out. She says that he has to use his imagination, because she's not quite straightforward, but at least she's true to herself.

You have to discover me
What goes wrong when I am crying
Or what I want when I'm smiling
She's saying that she wants the guy she is singing to to understand her and give her what she wants. She wants him to understand what he's done wrong when she is crying, and if it isn't his fault, for him to ask her what is wrong. "Or what I want when I'm smiling"- this is similar, but she's saying that he has to see what it is she wants when she is smiling, or why she's smiling.

It's no big deal, It's no big deal, It's no big deal
This is no big deal
This line is very self- explanatory, she's saying that it's no big deal, this is the way they always are and it's not unusual for them. It is to those people who would stop and stare, it's kinda saying
"What are you looking at", because there's really nothing out of the ordinary to see.

Trying hard to reach out
But when I'd try to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
I guess this line is a little bit of a personal interpretation thing, but to me it means that she was being criticized for being quiet and not reaching out, but then she does reach out and no one can hear me because what they really want is for her to stay the same as she was, and they don't want her to change from the way she was, so the just don't listen.

Say no, let go, keep your breath, as the anger flows
Hersi's Eurovision entry for Albania in 2014 is all about holding anger in and then letting it go without any violence or nasty words. This line:
"Say no, let go, keep your breath as the anger flows", is telling you to say no, to not give in to the anger because you will get over it and keep your breath, so you don't open your mouth and say something you'll regret.

Meaning
This song is a pretty standard song that is telling others to believe in themselves. Other songs like this include Little Me by Little Mix, Wings by Little Mix, Roar by Katy Perry, even Shake It Off by Taylor Swift and All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor. I think that all of these songs have great meanings and great lyrics, but I like this one the best because she is singing to another person about self belief and that they're wonderful, rather than the usual me-me-me-me-me of the other songs like this.

I've seen the world, lit it up as my stage now
She's saying that she's seen the world and all of it: good and bad. "Lit it up as my stage" is saying that she's convinced everyone to like, her and to put her in the spotlight. It also means that she has taken every opportunity and given it all she has to get where she wants.
