"Diving In At The Deep End" as written by Phil Thornalley and Natalie Jane Imbruglia....
Why should it be,
Someone like me could make the same mistakes again.
Haven't I learned,
People get hurt,
When they go diving in the deep end
In the deep end,
In the deep end,
In the deep end.
Thought I was smart,
Controlling the art, of turning off my intuition
Haven't I seen, since I was fourteen.
That life is all just repitition
You lose or you win,
You sink or you swim,
When you go diving in the deep end,
In the deep end,
In the deep end,
In the deep end.
Now it's time to realise,
You don't have to agonise
You don't have to compromise
But the one thing you must do
Is open your eyes
Your eyes,
Your eyes.
Why should it be,
Someone like me could make the same mistakes again.
Haven't I learned,
People get hurt,
When they go diving,
Diving, diving (fade).

    Song MeaningI think it's about her taking a huge risk on something when others probably told her not to and her gut probably did too, but she did it anyway and now she is saying she should have kept her eyes opened and realized that this was not going to be a good idea.

    I think she is saying that she has made these bad decisions before and is annoyed she made them again.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about being constantly disappointed by love, but continuing to risk everything to try to find it. She is saying that despite her better judgement she is going to take a chance on this new person she has acquired feelings for, but she is once again disappointed. She's been dating around since she was 14 and it's still the same old thing after all this time, after becoming an adult, nothing is changing, she is still continuing to experience disappointment after disappointment.
