"Mean" as written by Butch Walker and Alecia B Moore....
You used to hold the door for me, now you can't wait to leave,
You used to send me flowers if you fucked up in my dreams,
I used to make you laugh with all the silly shit I did,
But now you roll your eyes and walk away and shake your head.

When the spark has gone and the candles are out,
When the song is done and there's no more sound,
Whispers turn to yellin' and I'm thinking

How did we get so mean?
How do we just move on?
How do you feel in the morning
When it comes and everything's undone?
Is it 'cause we wanna be free?
Well that's not me,
Normally I'm so strong,
I just can't wake up on the floor
Like a thousand times before,
Knowing that forever won't be.

Always sentimental when, I think of how it was,
When love was sweet and new and we just, couldn't get enough,
The shower it reminds me you'd undress me with your eyes,
And now you never touch me and you tell me that you're tired.

You know I get so sad when it all goes bad,
And all you think about is all the fun you had,
And all those sorries ain't never gonna mean a thing, oh

How did we get so mean?
How do we just move on?
How do you feel in the morning
When it comes and everything's undone?
Is it 'cause we wanna be free?
Well that's not me,
Normally I'm so strong,
I just can't wake up on the floor
Like a thousand times before,
Knowing that forever won't be.

Oh we said some things that we can never take back,
It's like a train wreck tryin' to hit the right track,
We opened up the wine and we just let it breathe,
But we should of drank it down while it was still sweet,
It all goes bad eventually.

Now do we stay together cause, we're scared to be alone?
We got so used to this abuse, it kind of feels like home
But my baby I, just really wanna know, oh.

How did we get so mean?
How do we just move on?
How do you feel in the morning
When it comes and everything's undone?
Is it 'cause we wanna be free?
Well that's not me,
Normally I'm so strong,
I just can't wake up on the floor
Like a thousand times before,
Knowing that forever won't be.

How did we get so mean?
How do we just move on?
How do you feel in the morning
When it comes and everything's undone?
Is it 'cause we wanna be free?
Well that's not me,
Normally I'm so strong,
I just can't wake up on the floor
Like a thousand times before,
Knowing that forever won't be.

    General CommentThis is a great song off Pink's new album, "Funhouse".

    The meaning is pretty obvious. It's about being with someone for a long time and the spark fading away leaving you to realize that the relationship probably isn't going to survive.
