"Wipe Your Eyes" as written by Ross Golan, Damon Albarn, Jonathan Rotem, Adam Noah Levine, Sanjeet Singh-kane, Mariam Doumbia and Marc-antoin Moreau....
I'm afraid that I gotta do what I gotta do
But if I let you go, where you gonna go?
We gotta make a change, time to turn the page
Something isn't right, I don't wanna fight you
We've been through tougher times, you know it gets worse
We can turn this around please let me be first
And as I feel your tears spilling on my shirt
Something isn't right I don't wanna fight you

Hey you, come over and let me embrace you
I know that I'm causing you pain too
But remember if you need to cry
I'm here to wipe your eyes

Tonight before you fall asleep
I run my thumb across your cheek (across your cheek)
Cry 'cause I'm here to wipe your eyes
I know I made you feel this way
You gotta breathe, we'll be okay (be okay)
Cry 'cause I'm here to wipe your eyes

Oh nah nah oh nah nah nah nah
'Cause I'm here to wipe your eyes
Oh nah nah oh nah nah nah nah

When did we cross the line?
How could we forget?
Why do we let the pressure get into our heads?
Your broken heart requires all of my attention
'Cause something isn't right, I don't wanna fight you

Hey you, come over and let me embrace you
I know that I'm causing you pain too
But remember if you need to cry
I'm here to wipe your eyes

Tonight before you fall asleep
I run my thumb across your cheek (across your cheek)
Cry 'cause I'm here to wipe your eyes
I know I made you feel this way
You gotta breathe, we'll be okay (be okay)
Cry 'cause I'm here to wipe your eyes

Please don't lose your faith
Don't worry 'cause I'm here to keep you safe
I promise if you let me see your face
That I won't let you down
I won't let you down
I'm here to wipe your eyes

Tonight before you fall asleep
I run my thumb across your cheek (across your cheek)
Cry 'cause I'm here to wipe your eyes
I know I made you feel this way
You gotta breathe, we'll be okay (be okay)
Cry 'cause I'm here to wipe your eyes

    My InterpretationMy interpretation for this song is that the guy is a kind of guy who has a strong ego. Well, as we all known, mostly guys have strong egos but for this song though he has strong ego but when he saw her girl is already crying his ego goes down because of his love for his girl. How I wish many guys nowadays are like this and not only in this song.
    Remember, women are very emotional so guys just understand us and we really appreciate it and love you more than you'll ever imagine.

    My InterpretationIt might be a bit abstract, but I think this song is about a couple who are struggling in ending their relationship. Major lifestyle changes (moving, new job, etc) often create new situations that a relationship may or may not recover from. As much as you want to be together, it's often times better to separate and pursue the things that need to be done. Even though the couple loves each other they know that if they stay together, they won't be able to pursue what they truly love.

    I also think the chorus documents the last moment of the relationship where the couple embrace for the final time before no longer being together. Even though they have to separate and cause each other a lot of pain, in the end it'll be okay and work out for the both of them- although without each other.

    My InterpretationIt seems to be a song about a couple that is going through a tough strain. They love each other very much, but like always, life gets in the way of everything, and the two have to part. Whether that means break up or just take things to a different level. They don't want to leave each other. All they want to do is stay in each other's embrace, and this would be their last. I actually cry every time I hear this song because it really has the power to connect with people on a deeper level, especially since it's from the mans perspective.
