"Til You" as written by Alanis Nadine Morissette and Guy Sigsworth....
I’ve been wasting time
Clawing my way to you
Taking no prisoners with my romantic crimes
I’ve been holding on imaging him says a new
Holding my breath while you clean down the pike

Spinning my wheels round
I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you
Ear to the ground
I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you

I’ve been taking notes
Nursing the thought of you
Research and deliver 'cause I’m hiding my time
I’ve been holding on this magnet that calls to you
Entertaining myself with these consolation prizes

Spinning my wheels round
I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you
Ear to the ground
I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you

They’ve become too fond
But mere peace holders to you
They feel the stance card
As you form in my mind

Spinning my wheels around
I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you
Ear to the ground
I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you

'Til you

    General CommentThis song to me is about waiting to find that perfect person for you, even though they haven't yet manifested themselves to you. Looking back and seeing all your past "dodged bullets" (relationships) as a string of "consolation prizes".

    A deeper analysis, although maybe unwarranted, may even be derived. That even though the song doesn't explicitly say so, maybe this person doesn't even exist for some, or anyone, and is just an unattainable concoction of a person's deepest desires for the perfect relationship partner.

    My InterpretationFor me it's about a long distance relationship where the two people involved haven't met up yet. They've been living away from each other, giving the freedom to *physically* be with whoever they want to, but choosing not to get romantically involved with anyone else. So they won't take any prisioners with their romantic crimes.
    The keep picturing how it'd be if their yet-to-be partners were there with them.
