I should pray for Adelaide
But she wouldn't win this fight
Black and blue dear Adelaide
So many scars to hide

Waving my hands
You don't break
You don't understand
Lie to my face
Run away
You're just that kind of man

Every moment I surrender
Such a waste of love
You can't hold me down boy
Tell me what the hell you want
And I don't wanna cry about it
I don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let you go, I just gotta let go
I don't wanna cry about it
i don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let go

I should pray for Adelaide
But she don't hear a goddamn word that I say
Oh I'm so ashamed of Adelaide
How do you justify every moment he takes
Waving my hands
You don't break
You don't understand
Lie to my face
Run away
You're just that kind of man

Every moment I surrender
Such a waste of love
You can't hold me down boy
Tell me what the hell you want
And I don't wanna cry about it
I don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let go, I just gotta let go
I don't wanna cry about it
i don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let you go

And I'm buried in the silence
My eyes are closed
Got me like a spider
Trapped in your...

You can't hold me down boy x9



Every moment I surrender
Such a waste of love
You can't hold me down boy
Tell me what the hell you want
And I don't wanna cry about it
I don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let go, I just gotta let go
I don't wanna cry about it
i don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let you go

I should pray for adelaide
but she wouldnt win this fight
black and blue dear adelaide
so many scars to hide

    My InterpretationIt sound like it might be about someone (Adelaide) who should get out of an abusive relationship, but doesn't: "black and blue dear Adelaide, so many scars to hide". The person narrating - which could be Adelaide - is ashamed of Adelaide (herself) because of this and wants desperately to get out of the relationship despite not doing anything to do that; it's like they know being with the guy is poison for them, but they can't make themselves leave no matter how much they should/desire to do so.
