Songs that (probably) aren't about GD/trans, but sound like they could be

This is a song by ABBA - 'Don't Shut Me Down'. The lyrics seem to tell the story of someone who has transitioned and is trying to reconcile with their significant other.

"Don't Shut Me Down"

A while ago I heard the sound of children's laughter
Now it's quiet, so I guess they left the park
This wooden bench is getting harder by the hour
The sun is going down, it's getting dark

I realize I'm cold
The rain begins to pour
As I watch the windows on the second floor
The lights are on, it's time to go
It's time at last to let him know

I believe it would be fair to say
You look bewildered
And you wonder why I'm here today
And so you should, I would
When I left I felt I'd had enough
But in the shape and form I appear now
I have learned to cope
And love and hope is why I am here now

And now you see another me, I've been reloaded, yeah
I'm fired up, don't shut me down
I'm like a dream within a dream that's been decoded
I'm fired up, I'm hot, don't shut me down

I'm not the one you knew
I'm now and then combined
And I'm asking you to have an open mind
I'm not the same this time around
I'm fired up, don't shut me down

Will you leave me standing in the hall
Or let me enter?
The apartment hasn't changed at all
I got to say I'm glad
Once these rooms were witness to our love
My tantrums and increasing frustration
But I go from mad
To not so bad in my transformation

And now you see another me, I've been reloaded, yeah
I'm fired up, don't shut me down
I'm like a dream within a dream that's been decoded
I'm fired up, I'm hot, don't shut me down

I'm not the one you knew
I'm now and then combined
And I'm asking you to have an open mind now
I'm not the same this time around
I'm fired up, don't shut me down

You asked me not to leave
Well, here I am again
And I love you still and so I won't pretend
I have learned to cope
And love and hope is why I am here now

First, @Jessica Rose, I love this thread. I think we could have some fun with it.

During the year or so when I was most bullied, I found this song, which for me, was my message of defiance, that regardless of the mean girls, I was going to keep moving forward. This was my anthem.

Can't Stop by M83
Can't stop
I can't stop, yeah
Can't stop
I can't stop, yeah [repeat till end]


When you're ready, start living your truth.
That's when the magic happens.

Shine, by Blow Up Hollywood

so deep inside
waiting for the right time.
so good you'll see,
it's all inside of me.

it will change your mind,
and make you feel like you're blind,
when i polish me,
all i'll do is shine.

shining down on you
like heaven's opened up.
there's a diamond inside me,
but it's buried in the rough,
i will, you'll see, i'll shine.

i'll be brand new,
you won't recognize me,
when my light comes through,
so perfect and inviting.

they'll stop and stare,
at the wonder that's inside me.
just like the sun,
all i'll do is shine.

shining down on you
like heaven's opened up.
there's a diamond inside me,
but it's buried in the rough,
i will, you'll see, i'll shine.





When you're ready, start living your truth.
That's when the magic happens.

Clouseau En Dans



Translated from Dutch to English:

Sometimes you want to disappear from the world,

You feel different, they stare at you.

In a corner you threaten to languish away,

You are looking for a place where you can go

Wanting or not you to be judged,

I see myself in you.

Here with us really no game is played,

Here is a place for you.

Come in and dance

We can deal with the world together

Feel free and dance,

So let everyone commit!

Let our night lead the rhythm,

You will see it will go by itself.

Because music can free a person,

You move and you are yourself

What color or belief,

Music has no rank or stand, no.

She can only broaden your gaze,

All chairs on the side

Come and dance,

We can deal with the world together

Feel free and dance,

A false note is allowed

Look at me and dance,

So let everyone commit

Soon it will be January,

Life is already far too short,

We live today,

So move carefree

Yeah yeah

Join (whoeeew) and dance (yeaaah)

We can deal with the world together

Feel free (yeahyeah) and dance (oooow)

So let everyone commit

Come and dance,

We can deal with the world together

Feel free and dance,

Let everyone commit now

Helene Fischer, die erste denier art.



Translated from German to English:

You think you're not ticking properly

Just because you're not like the others

And her eyes meet you

But they don't know you, no

I can understand, it's not easy

Because what makes you so special doesn't fit in here

I hope you feel what's inside you

You're not wrong, you're perfect

You are the first of your kind

It doesn't matter that everyone likes you

Don't be told that you're weak

You've already made it so far

You are the first to dare

Your path becomes rocky and hard

You also go to him for the after, oooh

You are the first of your kind

You shape the imprint in this way

And you determine who goes after you

You write the pages of this book

And they listen to you, oooh

In every dream lives reality

You are what you think, so get ready

You want even more, then stay true to yourself

And with time, everything becomes new

You are the first of your kind

It doesn't matter that everyone likes you

Don't be told that you're weak

You've already made it so far

You are the first to dare

Your path becomes rocky and hard

You also go to him for the after, oooh

You are the first of your kind

What makes you doubt

And you prefer to hide

For fear of being left

Make yourself real for me

I see what you think

You're not like the rest

And what I appreciate about them

You are simply yourself

You are the first of your kind

It doesn't matter that everyone likes you

Don't be told that you're weak

You give strength to so many of us

You are the first to dare

Your path becomes rocky and hard

You also go to him for the after, oooh

You are the first of your kind

You are the first of your kind

It doesn't count that everyone likes you (it doesn't count that everyone likes you)

Don't be told that you're weak

You give strength to so many of us

You are the first to dare (you are the first to)

Your path becomes rocky and hard (you are the first to)

You also go to him for the after, oooh

You are the first of your kind
