"Back to Black [Clean Version]" as written by Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse....
He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I'll go back to black

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
I go back to us

I love you much
It's not enough
You love blow, and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
I go back to
I go back to

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to black

    My InterpretationThis song clearly depicts amy's troubled relationship with her husband/lover Blake , but it depicts the trauma/agony most og girls undergo post a breakup where they fail to move into a new relationship , howvever if the guy has already moved on.This causes immense pain to us.

    He left no time to regret, kept his dick wet, with his same old safe bet
    Me and my head high and my tears dry get on without my guy

    Its a clear allegation from gilr to the guy where he didnt remorse or regret of parting ways but has already moved into new relation.On the other hand , the girl with all her dignity and ego , she is holding her head high and crying but there is noone to wipe them off.

    You went back to what you knew
    So far, from all that we went through
    And I tread a troubled track, my arms are stacked
    I go back to black

    She alleges that the guy went bakc to all he knows , here it refers to moving on to a new relation with no regard to what all the couple had for so many years .She says that she took the sad path where she is till with him and hasnt tried to wipe off his memories by going to someone else .she is still waiting for him.she has gone to that black sad life where he is not ther with her , but she refuses to move on .

    We only said goodbye with words, I died a hundred times
    You go back to her and I go back to, I go back to us

    THe girl alleges that the bidden goodbye wasnt meant from heart and had no impact on her.she never meant it but may be said it coz she could not even make him stay.She has died hundred times since then .He went to the new women but the girl stayed bak with her memories.She could move past them.

    I go back to black

    Here , the girl clealry indicates that she cannot ans she has no desire to move past them , she has no desire to go to someone else.She still resids in her own black world without her guy , and she refuses to forget him.
