"Unfucktheworld" as written by and Angel Olsen....
I quit my dreamin' the moment that I found you
I started dancin' just to be around you
Here's to thinking that it all meant so much more
I kept my mouth shut and opened up the door

I wanted nothing but for this to be the end
For this to never be a tied and empty hand
If all the trouble in my heart would only mend
I lost my dream, I lost my reason all again

It's not just me for you
I have to look out too
I have to save my life
I need some peace of mind

I am the only one now
I am the only one now
I am the only one now

You may not be around
You may not be around
You may not be around

I am the only one now
I am the only one now
I am the only one now
I am the only one now

    General CommentUnfucktheworld always gives me the feels.

    I just think there are so many ways to interpret the song, all with sad endings. "I am the only one now"

    General CommentI think this song is about a person who has put their life on hold for someone.
    " I quit my dreaming the moment that I found you" and lived for the other.
    But now the relationship or the flirtationship ( " here's to thinking it all meant so much more") has come to an end
    This person has to find herself again ("I have to save my life") because she's not certain that the other person will come back.

    General CommentI love this song, it brings up a lot of feelings for me.

    I think this song is about someone who thought they had fallen 'in love' with someone else and it fell apart or turned out not to be what she thought.

    The beginning of the song the singer tells that 'I quit my dreaming the moment that I found you'
    As in, she thought she had found 'the one' and she could stop her search. The lines that follow hint at a problem down the line and then, in the next stanza, the lyrics 'I wanted nothing but for this to be the end' break my heart because, for me, it seems like the singer wanted this person to be the end of her search for love and is truly heart broken that she was wrong.
    'For this to never be a tied and empty hand' - (hands tied/empty handed) She never wanted the relationship to be compromised/fall apart. She didn't want to feel disappointed or disappoint.
    'I lost my dream I lost my reason all again' - the singer is lost again. She is back to searching, back to being alone and existing by herself.

    The end of the song, the singer explains how she needs to take care of herself and she can't put herself through this painful relationship anymore. She finally puts herself first, even if it hurts and means being alone.

    MemoryI've been on the receiving end of this song. I recently got out of a relationship with a girl and while we were insanely happy together, she had to leave because she needed to figure out personal issues and do that on her own. She had relied too much on other people to deal with her stuff in the past, and I happened to meet her at a wrong place in her life.

    "It's not just me for you, I have to look out too
    I have to save my life
    I need some peace of mind
    I am the only one now"

    This hits me hard.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about someone realizing that they basically sold their soul to the one that they love, and coming to the fact that the one they love might not always be around in their life, but they themselves will be. So they need to be their for themselves.
