Taylor Swift – Wildest Dreams Lyrics 6 years ago
She's basically singing about how she wants to be with this person but wants him to have fond memories of her that go beyond the physical attraction.

Taylor Swift – Out Of The Woods Lyrics 6 years ago
It is "your necklace hanging from my neck", not "your neck is hanging from my neck". That makes no sense.

Maroon 5 – It Was Always You Lyrics 6 years ago
You know, the more I think about it, the more likely this song is about Adam's wife, Behati. It fits considering he was at first dating her fellow VS model Anne V, and they may have been friends at the time. Behati also has hazel eyes. Just a thought. :)

Maroon 5 – Maps Lyrics 6 years ago
Your basic cynical, "break up to make up" song from Maroon 5. I do love this one, though.

Maroon 5 – It Was Always You Lyrics 6 years ago
I'm so in love with this song. It's about a guy realizing he is in love with one of his friends.

Ed Sheeran – ONE Lyrics 6 years ago
I definitely feel like this song is about a close friend he has feelings for and he's scared of messing up their friendship by acting on it.

I love the line "all my friends have gone to find another place to let their hearts collide". I interpret that as him saying everyone around has moved on from the past loves but he's still stuck on this one girl.

Also, when he says "as drunk as I have ever been", I get the feeling that he doesn't actually mean he's been drinking. I think he means love drunk. This girl has an amazing effect on him that he has never felt before.

Haim – Forever Lyrics 7 years ago
WTF, these lyrics are so wrong. "Together we suck", um, what?!

My gosh, why bother if you don't even know what they're saying? The correct lyrics are:

Hey you
Remember me? Remember love?
Remember trying to stay together?
My time, you took it all
You tried to see
You tried to bring yourself up without involving me
It isn't fair, to have your way
To try and get up and go and na na na na now can't you see
It isn't fair to have your way
But I'm trying to get your attention and I need you to know that

Hey you! Hey you!
Can't you make this sane?
I know, I know, I know you ain't the one to play the game
Now I know I'm never gonna go your way
If you go, now I know, I know know know

Forever we tried to make it right
Together we saw the end in sight
I'm tired of fighting the good fight
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

Forever I see you and me
Forever I'll try for you and I
No I never believed in their insight
Just another good reason to get it right

I don't want to turn around
So come on baby
Come on and try to let it out
Let go
We're still the same
So come on baby
Trigger the sound, lets figure it out
Let's get back to where we started out

Hey you! Hey you!
Can't you make this sane?
I know, I know, I know you ain't the one to play the game
Now I know I'm never gonna go your way
If you go, now I know, I know know know

Forever we tried to make it right
Together we saw the end in sight
I'm tired of fighting the good fight
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

Forever I see you and me
Forever I'll try for you and I
No I never believed in their insight
Just another good reason to get it right

Go go go go get out, get out of my memory
No no no not tonight, I don't have the energy

Go go go go get out, get out of my memory
No no no not tonight, oh not tonight, oh not tonight

Forever we tried to make it right
Together we saw the end in sight
I'm tired of fighting the good fight
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

Forever I see you and me
Forever I'll try for you and I
No I never believed in their insight
Just another good reason to get it right

This is really important to me that it's right because it my favorite song from them. It's about a couple whose spent more time trying to fix their relationship that actually having one. They tried to get it right and even when people told them they weren't right for each other, they wanted to prove them wrong and stay together (we never believed in their insight, just another good reason to get it right). Now she sees that he's giving up and she wants to, too, because she's tired of fighting for them, but it's been so long and they've tried so hard, she can't seem to do it.

The Oh Hellos – Hello My Old Heart Lyrics 7 years ago
"Don't you worry, in there you're safe
And it's true, you'll never beat, but you'll never break"

Just the basic feeling that everyone goes through, wanting to protect yourself from the pain but also unfortunately keeping your heart from love as well.

submissions
Katy Perry – Ghost Lyrics 7 years ago
The first lyric is supposed to be "you sent a text".

This is my favorite song on Prism. It's about Russel breaking up with her/asking for a divorce through a text message. More elaborately how she feels like he's just this long distant memory, this non-existent former presence in her life. A "ghost". It's a beautiful song.

submissions
Churchill – Change Lyrics 7 years ago
I think this song is about their record company or somebody within the band or behind the scenes. Especially the second verse. It sounds like she's talking about somebody wanting her or them to sell out just to be more commercially successful.

submissions
Lauren Aquilina – Fools Lyrics 7 years ago
I find this song to be about two people who are good friends and them find themselves wanting more and this person is expressing her fear that if they jump into something, it could ruin their friendship. "I don't want you to go, but I want you so". She means that she is afraid of screwing it up and losing him if it doesn't work out, but it's too hard to deny her feelings for him and pretend to just be friends.

submissions
Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball Lyrics 7 years ago
This song is very straight foward and paints a very visual picture. She is saying this love was the first time she just jumped right in, without a second thought, and it wrecked her. It wrecked both of them.

submissions
SafetySuit – Find A Way Lyrics 7 years ago
This song is so sexy. I agree that it gives off a vibe about a forbidden relationship but it could also be about two people who have broken up because they are "wrong" for each other but keeping finding themselves in each other's arms. He's saying forget about everything else and all the reasons we shouldn't be together, let's just be wrong tonight.

Aqualung – Strange & Beautiful (I'll Put a Spell on You) Lyrics 7 years ago
To me, this song is about loving someone from afar. I guess this could be a friendzone kind of ballad, but I get the feeling that the singer doesn't actually know this woman personally. It's about wishing you could just snap your fingers and have that person go "oh, hi there. I love you, too".

Goddamn, this song is beautiful. I think it's about a canceled wedding.

Ellie Goulding – The Writer Lyrics 8 years ago
This is basically just a song about having a crush, and she's so desperate for him that she would change everything about herself to make him like her.

submissions
Ellie Goulding – Every Time You Go Lyrics 8 years ago
I love this song. Basically, it's about a tumultuous relationship between a girl and a guy. In the chorus, she's describing what she feels whenever he he leaves her. He "wakes her up", in the sense that she's dreaming or feeling quite peaceful with their relationship, and he snaps her out of it by breaking up with her. I love the line "tape me up then break me up"...it means he fixes her heart just to break it again.

submissions
Taylor Swift – All Too Well Lyrics 8 years ago
This is the absolute best song on Red, and probably one of her best songs all together. I had no idea Jake affected her this much. I hear so much longing and confusion in this song. She remembers every single detail of their relationship, down to what the weather was and how the trees looked, because it was just that deep. But when she remembers, she knows it's over and she's not asking for him to come back, because she knows it wouldn't be the same, but that doesn't stop the memories from coming back. So beautiful!

submissions
Miley Cyrus – Stay Lyrics 8 years ago
What I hear in this song is her basically saying she would give up her career to be with person, if he'd only ask. She even says if she had to, she would "choose" him. The choice is between the life she lives, always being busy, always having to travel, ect, and her relationship with this person, because the distance is affecting them.

submissions
Regina Spektor – Samson Lyrics 8 years ago
I agree with those who think it's about a lover dying of cancer. The only reason Samson and the bible are mentioned is because Samson got his strength from his hair, and when her friend, who was on chemo, lost his hair, he lost his strength too (from the illness and from the chemo treatments). She says "the bible didn't mention us" because in her eyes, their story was epic and tragic and deserved to be remembered. "The history books" forgot about him, just another victim of cancer, but Regina never did, and she never will. He is her most bittersweet memory (sweetest downfall). When she says she loved him first, she doesn't mean she loved him before some other girl came along. She means she loved him before she loved anyone else. He was the first.

Katy Perry – Wide Awake Lyrics 8 years ago
There is no such thing as the illuminati. Get over it.

This song is about her divorce. What she is "waking up" from is the delusion about her marriage. She was on cloud 9, and even when things started to turn, she didn't want to believe it. Now, she's "wide awake" and can see everything for what it is. She only alludes to God because she's a Christian and I'm sure she's leaning on him to get through all of this. It has nothing to do with religion.

Jann Arden – You Don't Know Me Lyrics 8 years ago
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by...the chance that you might love me, too.

Isn't that the worst part of it all? Knowing that you had a chance, but you were too afraid, too insecure, to take that risk and tell them how you felt? And now it's too late, and they'll never know the person that loved them like you did.

submissions
Michelle Branch – Desperately (feat. Jessica Harp) Lyrics 9 years ago
For me, this song is about a relationship that's coming to an end. Everything that was once great about it has changed, but her feelings haven't. When she says that she still wants him so desperately, I hear that as completely, totally, pathetically wanting to be with someone who doesn't want you back. She wishes could just ignore the way she way she feels, but no matter what, she can't stop wanting him.

Katy Perry – Pearl Lyrics 9 years ago
I think it was in Rolling Stone where Katy said this song was not about a friend, but about herself.

Journey – Who's Crying Now Lyrics 9 years ago
I was having a conversation with a friend today, who has this on/off again relationship with someone she has been dating for years, and she was telling me that her boyfriend broke up after cheating on her for the umpteenth time, and one of the first things she said is "I can't wait to get him back", indicated her desire for revenge, and I couldn't stop hearing this song in my head. To me, this song is about a couple that is always hurting each other on purpose, constantly trying to settle the score. They love and hate one another. They really shouldn't be together anymore, because there's so much hurt between, but they can't seem to let each other go.

submissions
Adele – He Won't Go Lyrics 9 years ago
When I first heard this song, it sounded like it was about a woman in a codependent relationship that she needed to leave. She says she can't "do it on her own", which is something people ususally falsely believe when they are scared to be alone, too attached to leave someone who isn't good for them. But after listening to it a couple more times, I realized it's actually a very sweet love song about your devotion to someone, even when times get rough. The guy in this song has a substance abuse problem, ("poison"), and the girl is saying she will still by him regarless, because HE is the one who can't get through this problem on his own.

Adele – I'll Be Waiting Lyrics 10 years ago
This is one of the bests of 21. There's something I love about a female artist who can sing songs about times when she has mistreated someone in a relationship. It's such a breath of fresh air because you often only hear the other side, and it doesn't always happen that way.

submissions
Katy Perry – Who Am I Living For? Lyrics 10 years ago
I believe this song is about her personal struggle with her religion and her career. Not necessarily her belief in God, but basically, what's expected of her as a Christian, but what the media expects of her as an artist, and the kind of artist she actually wants to be. It's not so much that she doesn't want to be singing about kissing girls and big cocks and is forced to so as to stay relevant in the industry, she actually ENJOYS what she's doing, she likes the music she sings, and likes being a provactive and edgy artist. It's that she feels conflicted because of how she was raised and probably worries that this isn't what God would want for her.

She wants to please God, the church, her family, ect. but she also wants to be herself, and LIVE for herself. Which begs the title question...who is she living for?

Katy Perry – Not Like the Movies Lyrics 10 years ago
I think this is about the girls who tell themselves that real love isn't like a fairytale. It's about the ones who settle for someone who isn't "the one", because they'd prefer that over being alone. She's saying they shouldn't do that because true love IS like the movies, and soulmates exist, and "the one" is out there, somewhere, waiting for you. And she knows first hand, because she was one of those girls before.

"One hundred percent with every penny spent
He'll be the one that finishes your sentences".

Katy Perry – The One That Got Away (feat. B.o.B.) Lyrics 10 years ago
People are saying this song is about the lead singer of Relient K. I buy it, because I know they dated a few years ago and remain friends. Anyway, this is my favorite song from her new album. It's sad, but catchy and unbeat at the same time.

Katy Perry – Circle the Drain Lyrics 10 years ago
This is about being in love with someone with a substance abuse problem. Really, there's just no way you can make it work with someone like that. You'll only end up watching them destory themselves, and this is when she's at the point where's realizing that fact.

submissions
Taylor Swift – Haunted Lyrics 10 years ago
I can't add much to anything everyone else has said, except that I'm pretty sure this song is connected to "Sparks Fly". Just a hunch, because in her notes in the Speak Now booklet, she says there are songs dedicated to her first love who she never expected to be her first heartbreak, and in the "Sparks Fly" lyrics, there's a part where she says "give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around". So "Sparks Fly" is part one of the love story, where they first fell in love, and Haunted is the follow-up, where he broke her heart.

Taylor Swift – Superman Lyrics 10 years ago
I agree. John Mayer, definitely. But aside from WHO it's about, WHAT it's about...well I see it as a song dedicated to a man she idealizes, and sees as untouchable. She puts him on a pedestal, he is her "Superman" and worships him, secretly, silently, and wants to someday, tell him how she feels.

Agree with ohsosweet, it's about two people who were "just friends" in the beginning, then one day, moved on to something more, and now at this point, she doesn't want to be with him like that anymore, and is asking him to go back to being friends again, and he's saying it's impossible because now he's in love with her.

Carrie Underwood – I Told You So Lyrics 11 years ago
I've always thought HE was the one who left her and she was asking him "how would you react if you were in my shoes?", basically her answer is no, she won't get back together with him and should understand it because he wouldn't take her back if she had done the same to him. It's just the way she sings the chorus so passionately, I get the feeling she is the one saying "I told you so", not him.

Paramore – Brick by Boring Brick Lyrics 11 years ago
I take the "ripping wings off of butterflies" line to mean that she is destroying everything in her fairytale world. Like the butterflies are a part of the falsehood of it all, you know, the fake beauty and innocence, so she's ripping their wings off, destorying them and getting back to the real world. I think this is why they chose to but the mangled butterfly on the cover. It represents that they are getting rid of all their misconceptions and fantasies and looking at the world with a new outlook...or, you know, brand new eyes. :)

Sparks The Rescue – We Love Like Vampires Lyrics 11 years ago
I'm pretty sure this song is about a girl he messes around with, who leaves him in the morning. They "love like vampires" because she leaves him when the sun comes up. Basically, it's about a relationship that's only about sex.

Demi Lovato – We'll Be a Dream (feat. We the Kings) Lyrics 11 years ago
I think this song is about two people looking back fondly on an old relationship that has ended, but they are able to see it as a good memory, a "dream", rather than remembering the reason they broke up in the first place.

submissions
Demi Lovato – On the Line Lyrics 11 years ago
I'm thinking this song is about a long distance relationship. "On the line" means that all of this is happening over the phone. Even though Nick Jonas's voice is UNBEARABLE, this is one of my favorites from Demi. I love the chorus and this particular part: "never would've said forever if I knew we'd end so fast. Why did you say "I love you" if you knew that it wouldn't last?". This is one of those rare songs that's really catchy and upbeat but manages to be really sad at the same time.

Demi Lovato – Don't Forget Lyrics 11 years ago
"Somewhere we went wrong
Our love is like a song
But you won't sing along
You've forgotten about us"

That is truly beautiful. This song always reminds me of an old friend I used to be in love with. We used to be really close, and now we are pratically strangers. I've gotten over it, but I always feel a little sad everytime I hear this song.
