"It's Only (feat. Zyra)" as written by and Clayton Knight Harrison Mills....
I heard the news today
That you're not mine to keep
Don't struggle too much now
While I kill you in your sleep
What is lust if it's not beating by yourself?
I won't be gentle to the body on the shelf

It's only water, it's only fire, it's only love
It's only slaughter, we're only liars, it's only blood
They're only thoughts that
I'm having thoughts safe within my head
You're only crying, you're only dying, you're only late

I heard the news today
That you weren't not mine to save
I hope that you're comfortable
In the quiet plastic grave
What is lust if it's not beating by yourself?
I won't be gentle to the body on the shelf

It's only water, it's only fire, it's only love
It's only slaughter, we're only liars, it's only blood
They're only thoughts that
I'm having thoughts safe within my head
You're only crying, you're only dying, you're only late

It's only water, it's only fire, it's only love
It's only water, it's only fire, it's only love
It's only water, it's only fire, it's only love
It's only water, it's only fire, it's only love

It's only water, it's only fire, it's only love
It's only slaughter, we're only liars, it's only blood
They're only thoughts that
I'm having thoughts safe within my head
You're only crying, you're only dying, only water

    General CommentNo idea the meaning. But i love the beats, song, and lyrics.

    But hey, I'll take a stab, say what I think when I hear the song/read the lyrics in regards to my own personal situations.

    She wanted to sincerely help someone out of love. But that person, in the long run, would not allow it. And of course, the love can turn to resentment in instances like these. And to her, the person is now dead.

    Lyrics are beautifully juxtaposed to the tone of the song.

    General Commentok, i found out this was used in a documentary called Denali. I think rather than the subject not allowing the singer to save him/her, the subject CANNOT be saved. And that's what causes the pain for the singer.

    My InterpretationImagine:
    Two people meet. It's love at first sight.
    There is fire, there is passion! They are soul mates.

    ...but, he is married. He's stuck in a hollow relationship.

    They promise each other that love will prevail. He will leave his relationship to live again.

    Time passes... He's taking too long. He isn't moving forward.

    Why isn't he taking the leap to life, love, passion?
    Finally, she realizes that he isn't going to.
    She's angry. She's bitter. She cries.

    She wishes him dead; wishes that they had never met.
    She smashes a photo of him instead.
    She can't save him. She has to kill her love for him.
    True love did not matter enough to him. They were lying to themselves.
    He will continue his hollow life.

    All the tears, all the hardship, love itself... it was all for nothing in the end.



    After reading the story above, listen to the song again and it'll take on new meaning.
