"Somehow" as written by and Jared Bell Michael Corcoran....
She stares at the moon
Her ribbons out of tune
Memories of the past
At the bottom of her glass
And resting on her cheek
The imprint of his ring
A symbol of the weak
Commissioned by the king
Did he tie you down?
Did you make a sound?

[Chorus]
She falls to her knees
Screaming God please
Make something of me
Cause I never wanted anything like what I wanna be right now
An angel again
An angel again somehow

She remembers his old boots
And the shotgun that he shoots
And all she could take
Lies at the bottom of a lake
So lift your cig and drag
As you figure out a plan
To hide it all away
How could she ever love this man
Did you weigh him down?
Did he make a sound?

[Chorus]

And when you carry weight in your life (life)
And all the plans you make in your life (life)
The original decision was right

[Chorus]

Did he tie you down?
Did you make a sound?
Did he weigh you down?
Did he make a sound?

    General CommentThis song sounds to me like it's about a really controlling guy whose girlfriend can't take it anymore and kills him but that's just the way I see it..

    General CommentI agree with fictional heroes (:


    It seems like there is a girl who was forced into a relationship or marriage. Either that, or the boyfriend is too demanding and too controlling, and all she wants is freedom from it all.

    General Commenti think it is about a girl in an abusive relationship and she just like..can't handle it anymore and so she kills the guy and then just wants to be safe and a good person again..i dunno

    lots of credit to drake though for writing such a deep song...there are so many young people writing meaningless songs this guy is deep!

    Song MeaningI think that the song is about a girl that gets drunk at a party and is raped by her boyfriend, who she eventually reports to the police, and how she feels dirty or unholy because of the rape.

    The Rape thing;

    "...Did he tie you down?
    Did you make a sound? ... "

    The Reporting / Killing thing;

    "...Did he tie you down?
    Did you make a sound? ..."

    The reason I think that it might mean that she reported him to the police is because he feels guilty about what he did to her, and he tried to apologize / yelled at her as he was being arrested.

    General CommentI actually think that this song may be about more than just a boyfriend. Possibly a husband or even a father. Regardless, I would say it's definitely a song about an abusive relationship that ends with the abuser's death, and in the wake, she has to find herself again. Wade through the pain and the damage she suffered, to find some worth in herself.
