"Waltzing Back" as written by and Dolores Mary O'riordan....





Who gave them the right,

Waltzing back into your life,

Your life,

Your life?

Now I feel fear,

I wish that they'd never come here,

Here,

Here.

What they're gonna do,

what they're gonna say,

Taking you away

From my life, my life, my life?

What they're gonna do,

what they're gonna say,

Taking you away

From my life, my life, my life?

What they're gonna do,

what they're gonna say,

Taking you away

From my life, my life, my life?

I don't want to know.

I don't want to say.

I don't want to say

'Cause it's your life, your life, your life.

Who gave them the right

Turning it back into light,

Light,

Light?

Then I felt fear,

I wish that they'd never come here,

Here,

Here.

Who gave them the right,

The right,

The right?

    General CommentWow, first to comment.

    I thought it was about old aquintances (or personifications of something) coming back into the life of someone dear to her that has changed for the better. She fears this person(onification) will turn the friend back around away from the light and her.

    General Comment2nd comment and 2 is my lucky number. Look at that ^_^

    I guess we will never know what this song means except if The Cranberries did not tell it in an interview. My impression is that this song tells about another war and someone dear to her is recruited, taken from her again and she says that they have no right to do it because it is his life, that only he can decide what to do with.

    Song Meaningi think the waltzer is her lover's ex.
    probably a non-romantic intrusion
    ...
    sometimes I think the singer is suspicious of the relationship between the waltzer and her lover, other times she's merely coveting his time.
