You are far more likely
To be devoured than empowered
By your sense of romance

Oh, doleful girl
Alone in the world
Where did her true love go?
Well I'd like to know
This means everything to me
Hope someone will see
That those innocent days were a life ago

You are far more likely
To be devoured than empowered
By your sense of romance

Even the most gentle of folk
Will snap when provoked
I ain't scared no more
I've said that before
I sense it on your breath
You're frozen in your depths
Where did the good guys go?
Well I'd like to know

Save your secrets for those who deserve it
But like the rice pounded out by a rabbit
I'm miles away from ever understanding
Why I had to be more of a man then

    General CommentI love this song. Sounds like it's about a girl who's been through a lot of bad relationships.

    "To be devoured than empowered by your sense of romance
    Save your secrets for those who deserve it "
    these two sentences made me cry

    But i cannot understand " like the rice pounded out by a rabbit"
    what the heck does it mean?

    General CommentI think the whole song is about a girl who used to have such a romantic view on life, but her view has been changed by bad relationships with bad guys who treated her indecently. I think a the end wen he sings, "I'm miles away from ever understanding/Why I had to be more of a man then," he's looking back and remembering that he treated girls the way this girl that he cares about has been treated--the way he's looking down on other guys for treating girls-- and he doesn't really know why he ever treated anyone that way.
