"Boot" as written by and Kreviazuk/faragher/immergluck/urbano....
Never been here before
Never opened up this door
But I got a feelin'
It's just like the others
Never heard him laugh before
Never felt him feel before
But I got a feeling
It's just like the others

He's got a big boot
He's got a big hand
And he's got a big fist
To put me down

Here we go again

Never heard him lie before
Never heard him cry before
But I got a feeling
It's like the others
Never heard him dream
Never felt it before
But I got a feeling
It's just like the others

He's got a big boot
He's got a big hand
He's got a big fist
To put me down
He's got a big mouth
And I know he's got some big words
He's got a big knife
To cut me down

Is it all,
Is it all because of the fall
But it's not my fault
How long, how, how long -
How long
Do I have to long

Never been here before
Never walked through this door
But I got a feeling it won't be
Like the others

Even though
he's got a big boot
And he's got a big hand
And he's got a big fist
To put me down.....
He's got a big mouth
And he's got a lot of big words
I bet he's got a big knife
To you know cut me, cut me down
oh...
A big (fist?)
'Til he cut me down
He's got a big mouth
Bet he's got some bad words
Come on let's see your big knife
Why don't you try to cut me down

    General CommentThe choruses are obvious to me about abuse. I think her voice is so sharp in the chorus, you really feel the anguish in her tone. And I also love the piano.

    However, the verses...I have no idea what they are alluding to. Any thoughts to what "the fall" is alluding to? Or what's "like the others"? Had she been in an abusive relationship prior to this one?

    Usually Chantal's songs are less ambiguous than this. I like that it doesnt straight out tell what she's talking about and leaving things up to interpretation, but I cant seem to even venture an interpretatipn without understanding the verses.
