"Georgia" as written by and James Keogh....
She is something to behold
Elegant and bold
She is electricity
Running to my soul, oh

And I could easily lose my mind
The way you kiss me will work each time
Calling me to come back to bed
Singing Georgia on my mind

And I, and I

Lips generous and warm
You build me up like steps
Eyes innocent and wild
Remind me what it's like, oh

And I could easily lose my mind
The way you kiss me will work each time
Pulling me back into the flames
And I'm burning up again, I'm burning up

And I, I never understood what was at stake
I never thought your love was worth it's wait
Well now you've come and gone
I finally worked it out, I worked it out

I never should have told you
I never should have let you see inside
Don't want it troubling in your mind
Won't you let it be

I never should have told you
I never should have let you see inside
Don't want it troubling in your mind
Won't you let it be

I never should have told you
I never should have let you see inside
Don't want it troubling in your mind
Won't you let it be

I never should have told you
I never should have let you see inside
Don't want it troubling in your mind
Won't you let it be

And I could easily lose my mind
The way you kiss me will work each time
Pulling me back into the flames
And I'm burning up again, I'm burning up

And I, I never understood what was at stake
I never thought your love was worth its wait
Well now you've come and gone
I finally worked it out, I worked it out, oh, ooh, oh

    My InterpretationHe is in love with a girl that drives him crazy, she's alway on his mind. He thinks that she doesn't love him as much as he does however. He tells her how he feels about her but immediately regrets it. He is telling her he shouldn't have let her inside his mind as he never lets anyone see inside, he doesn't want to be a bother and feels he is one once he says how he feels. In the end he decides he has to move on as she doesn't want to be with him

    My InterpretationI believe this is about a guy who used to date a girl, but they weren't exclusive, and he didnt really feel like she was worth pursuing a relationship with. Hence "I never understood what was at stake, never thought your love was worth it's wait". But then she leaves because she met someone else, he confesses he made a mistake and that he wants her, but he is just a burden to her now. Like he once saw her. So now he wishes he would've just let her be. Because he is complicating her life and her happiness.

    My InterpretationAfter viewing the music video, I had almost an epiphany... The song (to me) is about a guy/girl/something, that is in love with another guy/girl/something, and the person believes it is real love. But what that person doesn't realize is that it's all fake and there was never love.. I don't know, that just speaks to me.

    My InterpretationI think that this is more about a person realizing that they held a person back from being loved the way that they truly deserved. You can love kissing, but it doesn't mean you love the person the lips belong to. He knows what she's worth, but sometimes you can't bring yourself to love someone completely.

    He talks about going back into the flames, and I think that's his feeling of guilt for doing this to a person. When he talks about wishing he'd never told her, it's because he knows he did the damage, and now shes troubled by the fact the man shes in love with doesn't feel the same way.

    Life sucks

    General CommentThe song is about a woman who has cancer; as referring to "elegant and bold". Even though she is weak and fragile, she still has the power to make him feel warm and loved as a human being, by her touch and her eyes. He never realised how much he loved her untill it was too late; as most things in life

    My InterpretationWell from the video itself, it is set in a war, but tries to get more in to the love part, some say it's talking about nowdays where homosexuality may be worse than war.

    From the song, I saw people interpreting it as the singer suffer from like hard times with a girl he likes.

    But if just the video and the song combined, I think this interprets more to being homesick, because in the lyrics "Singin" Georgia On My Mind"" is like he is recalling his old peaceful memories at home, but he sang this during war, but mortar fires, AKs and AR15s are what he is currently hearing.
    The "She" might refer to where he lived, maybe Georgia.

    So my interpretation is: this song is about being homesick
