"Goddess" as written by Jillian Rose Banks and Tj Carter....
She gave it all, you gave her shit
She coulda done, just anything
Or anyone, 'cause she's a goddess
You never got this
You put her down, you liked her hopeless
To walk around, feeling unnoticed
You shoulda crowned her, 'cause she's a goddess
You never got this

Now you gotta deal with this glitch on your shoulder
Fucking with the goddess and you get a little colder
It's colder, colder
Fucking with the goddess, and you get a little colder

Finally surfaced above doubts
Feeling about this, you came around
'Cause she's a goddess, finally saw this
And now you're back, trying to claim her
'Cause she's gone and now without her
You all alone, 'cause she's a goddess
You shoulda saw this

Now you gotta deal with this glitch on your shoulder
Fucking with the goddess and you get a little colder
It's colder, colder
Fucking with the goddess, and you get a little colder

Now you gotta deal with this glitch on your shoulder
Fucking with the goddess and you get a little colder
It's colder, colder
Fucking with the goddess, and you get a little colder

Now you gotta deal with this glitch on your shoulder
You fucking with the goddess and you get a little colder
You're colder, colder (you're colder, colder)
You fucking with the goddess, and you get a little colder

    My InterpretationI feel that this song is meant for an emotionally abusive ex to hear.

    The girl, or goddess, was and is a beautiful, talented, loving woman who could have had her choice of any partner ("She coulda done, just anything
    Or anyone,"). The now-ex either felt threatened by her when he/she was with her, or just didn't realize how lucky he/she was to be with the goddess, and treated her horribly as a result due to his/her own insecurities, issues, and abusive nature.

    The goddess was highly invested in the relationship, ("She gave it all,")
    yet the ex took not only couldn't appreciate her, but was cruel to boot
    ("You gave her shit"..."You put her down, you liked her hopeless, To walk around, feeling unnoticed") and actually enjoyed making her feel bad about herself and living with the light inside her dimmed, feeling depressed and invisible, perhaps lowering any perceived "risk" of losing her to another, better partner. This is a common abuse strategy: to lower her self-esteem so she thinks the abuser is the best she can get and no one else would want her, making her more likely to stay.

    However, we see that the relationship ended, and now the ex finally understands how incredible the goddess is (maybe because now she has her spark back on account of being free from the abuse?) and is trying to win her back ("And now you're back, trying to claim her"). The ex regrets losing her and is now bitter, and must live with this feeling ("Now you gotta deal with this glitch on your shoulder.")

    "Fucking with the goddess and you get a little colder" suggests to me that the abuse the ex doled out has killed off some of his/her own soul, so the ex becomes "colder" inside/personality-wise, and may even blame the goddess for leaving and for the problems in the relationship (common with abusive partners). Life is now 'colder' ("it's colder") for the ex due to the goddess's absence, as he/she is lonely, the bed is empty, and the sting of regret is hard to deal with.

    This song could be extended to other emotionally abusive relationship types, too.
