He grew up just a little too fast
Lost and needs it's on his past

I can hear him hummin'
From the other side of the room
Guess he's got rhythm
Cause he hums every time he's blue

Ohhhhhhhh.

Radio,
Bleed me a melody
That will make this boy cry
Radio,
Bleed me a melody
That'll make him wonder why
He was so cold

Broken glass and a pretty face
Silent morn full of hate
Quiet face, silent mind
Screaming for consequence
Bleedin' for more

Radio,
Bleed me a melody
That will make this boy cry
Radio,
Bleed me a melody
That'll make him wonder why
He was so cold

Play him a song that reminds him
Of a time when he wasn't tumbling down, down
Tumbling down

Radio,
Bleed me a melody
That will make this boy cry
Radio,
Bleed me a melody
That'll make him wonder why
He was so cold (radio)

Radio (radio) radio
Bleed me a melody (radio)
Radio (radio)
Bleed me a melody (radio)
That boy’s got rhythm
Cuz he hums everytime (radio)
He’s blue (radio)
Radio (radio)

    My InterpretationI think that this song is about a boy who obviously was forced to grow up fast by all the things that he was exposed to at a young age. Those things could have been drugs, alcohol, sex, pain, or all of the above. I'm guessing that he was exposed to so much growing up that it could have dulled his expectations of the world and made him doubt the good in people and the good in himself. He may have developed a strong fear of being hurt scince that's all he ever knew, so he refuses to open himself to those who care for him.

    The girl is saying in my eyes that she wishes that she could do something to make him unafraid to feel something for someone.
    Play him a song that reminds him of a time when he was a child, so innocent, so open and accepting, a song that would make him wonder why he is so cold now, a song that would help him see that not everyone is out to hurt him.

    The boy is upset and broken due to being forced to grow up too quickly and probably having a very painful past. The girl wants the boy to hear something that will make him realize how, while preoccupied in his own pain, he's caused her pain and wonder why he did the things he did. She wants him to hear something that will make him remember the good times, not just the bad.

    This song is perfection. <3

    General Commenti see this song about a boy, who was in love with a girl, and everything was perfect. then, things started to change, and "he was growing up to fast." so he changed, and she stayed the same, and things started to get confusing. eventually, she gets hurt, and she wants him to realize that he was wrong, and "cold."
    "Play him a song that reminds him
    Of a time when he wasn't tumbling down"
    she wants him to remember a time before he changed, when things were good.
    "I can hear him hummin'
    From the other side of the room
    Guess he's got rhythm
    Cause he hums every time he's blue"
    she stills see's the person he used to be showing through whenever she sees him, and she wants him to see it himself.

    General CommentRachel told us what this song's story at the concert.
    It's about a really attractive boy she liked who was into Slipknot and she was into Alice in Chains and they bonded over music. It's about the power of music, I believe.
