India.Arie – Ready for Love Lyrics 3 years ago
I think the meaning of the song simply reflects the title. She has come of age and realised what real grown up love is about. She is offering her love with no expectations or conditions.

Hozier – Arsonist's Lullaby Lyrics 3 years ago
@[Orion510:7758] Perfect interpretation. That is what I got from this song. It's about survival with re-occuring bouts of PTSD in-between. The idea of transformation and embracing the darker parts of your humanity to propel you forwards towards the lighter parts of your humanity.

@[MuzikMuze:7013] ITA - been there also. That is how I interpreted it. I also think there is an element of her own awakening of self awareness and knowledge of the original injury (critical parent etc).

Lianne La Havas – Lost & Found Lyrics 4 years ago
For me this song is about falling in love, and doing every thing including changing yourself for someone just so that they can see you. Then you realise they don't 'none of that was real' and in the process you have learned to not be true to yourself 'you broke me and taught me to truly hate myself, unfold me and teach me to be like somebody else'.
So in a sense the song is about awakening when she says; ' come inside and i'll show you where my demons hide from you'
My sense is that she is not talking to the lover who broke her heart but rather her heart itself and the part of her which was always broken and was seeking out someone who was always unavailable. She has done this to herself through her own lack of self love. She is ashamed of what she has become. The man is not important, just her inability to seek her own acceptance.
