"My God" as written by and Jack Steadman....
All the highs are downwards
All your fumble words are spent
Paying no attention
To the thoughts of your dear friend

No point louder
The sound of my power
Sink in deeper
Further each hour
My God

When our flower's fading
When our stem begins to fold
I will take off quietly
Like a bird that flees the cold

No point louder
The sound of my power
Sink in deeper
Further each hour
My God
My God
My God
My God
My God
My God
My God

    My Interpretation

    i think this song is about depression e.g. ''all these highs are downwards all your fumble words are spent'' and ''sink in deeper further each hour'' like sinking into depression. im probably wrong but thats my interpretation anyway

    My InterpretationI believe the song is about a failing relationship near its end. the second verse would seem to suggest that something once perfect and beautiful is dying "when our flower's fading" and when the foundations of that relationship crumble "When our stem begins to fold" it's time to call it a day and move on "like a bird that flees the cold" he also suggests he will do it civily "I will take off quitely"

    General CommentI think that this song is about finding out that your significant other has cheated on you. It's basically describing the argument he's having with his partner, and how angry and heated it gets. Lines like "paying no attention to the thoughts of your dear friend" and "sound of my power" lead me to to believe this. The title itself "My God" and the way he sings it in the song shows the frustration and utter disbelief he's in about the situation.

    General CommentI think the song is describing the act of breaking up. It's the final conversation the two have as a couple. I say this mainly because of the second verse and my experience with breaking up.

    The first verse is the moment of realisation for the other person (breakee). The person doing the breaking up (breaker) is looking away and fumbling his/her words while he/she is trying to get the message out. The breaker is so focussed on breaking up that he/she isn't paying attention to the breakee in this intense moment and the breakee is the dear friend.

    The second verse mentions "our" flower and "our" stem and these are strong metaphors for the relationship.

    The repeated "My God" is the multiple realisations that one goes through when they realise a precious relationship is over.

    The guitar and voice in this song are so beautiful and the fagility of the situation if brilliantly expressed by this song. I actually can't listen to this song at the moment because it's too realistic to my past experience.
