Jordin Sparks – Let It Rain Lyrics 4 years ago
i dont think it's about a relationship...i think it's about her moving on with her life...she wants to let go of everything she's kept inside and just be free to live again...she wants a clean slate...to start over (wash me clean)...and for the "let you in" part...that could be all the people in her life... not just one...tht she wants to let back in...she doesn't wanna lie anymore about what she's feeling...she just wants them to see her for who she is and move past it all...

that's what i think anyway...it seems to be the most logical explanation...

Our Lady Peace – All You Did Was Save My Life Lyrics 4 years ago
the line "like the red sea you spit me open." is actually a refferance from the Bible. Moses, when he was running away from Ramses, he took his staff and with "the power of God", he literally split the red sea in half...like there was a wall of water on either side of a pathway that went through the center, and when Moses and the rest of the Hebrews got across the sea, Moses put the sea back together again and Ramses and his army were lost at sea.

i think that line is saying "you tore through my defences and i can't do anything about it."

lol...what's really funny is that you guys are probably all thinking i'm some Bible thumper....lmao...to say the rest...the church that i belonged to actually kicked me out lol...ya...no...im not religious at all...although i was when i was younger...sort of...more like i knew all the stories...plus...anyone who's ever seen "The Prince of Egypt" will know what i'm talking about...

"the river of deliverence" refers to the previous line "complicated situations are the makings of all that's wrong"...he's saying that he's the one delivering the complicated situations...he's the one causing them is what he's saying.

Breaking Benjamin – Dance With The Devil Lyrics 5 years ago
Actually...for the second verse...another interpretation could be where it says "I believe in you"...it could be her saying that she believes he can fight death and that he can live. That he doesn't have to die. "I can show you that I can see right through all your empty lies"...She's sayin that she doesn't believe him when he says he's gonna die and that she'll do anything to prove it. "I won't last long, in this world so wrong"...She's refusing to believe that he is gonna die even though he keeps telling her that he is. again, "world" meaning mind...his mind to be exact. She's saying that she won't last long if she believes what he's telling her. She won't last long in his world. She won't last long thinking what he thinks.

idk...just another interpretation of the verse...

Breaking Benjamin – Dance With The Devil Lyrics 5 years ago
I think it's about a guy just about to die and there's this girl trying to stop it but the guy is trying to convince the girl that it's pointless to help him and in the end they both try to accept it.

"Here i stand.
helpless and left for dead"

....He's dying and there's nothing he or anyone else can do to stop it.

"Close your eyes.
So many days go by.
Easy to find what's wrong.
Harder to find what's right"

....He's tellin her to stop worrying and to try and remember all the good times they had together and forget about the bad.

"I believe in you, I can show you that
I can see right through all your empty lies"

....He's saying that she can let him go despite the fact that she's sayin she can't.

"I won't stay long, in this world so wrong"

....He's saying that her hoping and praying for him to live is in vain. In her world (her mind) everything will be okay and he's gonna be fine. But in reality, he's gonna die. He's sayin she's wrong to believe that everything will be okay.

"Say goodbye
As we dance with the devil tonight
Don't you dare look at him in the eye
As we dance with the devil tonight."

....He's telling her to let him go and to "say goodbye" to him. "dancing with the devil" i believe refers to him telling her to face the truth that he is gonna die. "Dance" refering to her facing it and "the devil" refering to the fact that he's gonna die. "Don't you dare look at him in the eye"...he's telling her not to be decieved into believing that he is going to live.

"Trembling, crawling across my skin.
Feeling your cold, dead eyes
Stealing the life of mine."

....At this point of the song, i believe it changes from his perspective to hers. She's feeling the truth take over her and the pain it's causing her.

"I believe in you, i can show you that
I can see right through all your empty lies
I won't last long, in this world so wrong"

...."I believe in you, i can show you that
I can see right through all your empty lies"...She realizes that the truth is overpowering her and tries to fight it. "I won't last long, in this world so wrong"...She's sayin that she can't handle losing him. That the truth is "wrong" and unfair.

"Say goodbye
As we dance with the devil tonight
Don't you dare look at him in the eye
As we dance with the devil tonight."

....She's telling herself to "say goodbye" to the fact that she's losing him. To push the fact out of her head. She's trying to convince herself it isn't happening. "Dance" this time refering to her pushing the devil out of her mind. "The devil" again refering to the fact that he's dying. "Don't you dare look at him in the eye"...She's telling herself not to believe that he's dying no matter what.

"Hold on
Hold on"

....At this point I believe that the first "hold on" is him telling her to not be sad for him and to accept his death and move on. The second "hold on" I think is her telling him not to leave her. To stay alive.

"Say goodbye
As we dance with the devil tonight
Don't you dare look at him in the eye
As we dance with the devil tonight."

....This time i think the chorus is both of them speaking at the same time but this time they're both saying the same thing. I think that they are both "saying goodbye" to life as they know it. They both know things are going to be different from now on. Now that he's going to be dead and she's going to be living life without him. "dance with the devil" this time refering to them accepting what is about to happen. "Dance" refering to the acceptance of the devil. "The devil" refering to his death. "Don't you dare look at him in the eye" refering to both of them trying to fight off the temptation for their lives to be meaningless and corroded and completely destroyed because of his death.

"Hold on
Hold on"

....This time, I believe they are both saying "hold on" at the same time. I believe they are telling each other to hold on to each other's hearts. Not necesarily as in like a boyfriend/girlfriend way (although it could be), but maybe as in like them saying to one another that they'll always care about each other as friends and that they want each other to know and remember that even after his death.

"Goodbye"

....This is both of them telling each other goodbye for the last time. In other words, him dying.

Whatever though. I mean if you think it's about somethin else that's cool. This is just what came to my mind when I heard the song. And it doesn't necesarilly have to be a guy and a girl who are friends or who are in a relationship...I mean it could be two guys who are best friends or two family members like a daughter/son and a dad/mom...a sister and a brother...I mean I think it could pretty much be any two people just as long as they care about each other.
