When I talk about it
Carries on
Reasons only knew
When I talk about it
Aries or treasons all renew

Big me to talk about it
I could stand to prove
If we can get around it
I know that it's true

Well, I talked about it
Carried on
Reasons only knew
But it's you I fell into

When I talked about it
Carries on
Reasons only knew
When I talk about it
Aries or treasons all renew

Big me to talk about it
I could stand to prove
If we can get around it
I know that it's true

Well, I talked about it
Put it on
Never was it true
But it's you I fell into

Well, I talked about it
Put it on
Never was it true
But it's you I fell into

I fell into
I fell into

    General CommentSince no-one's said what the meaning of this song is yet, I'll do the honours:

    Basically, he starts a conversation which turns into a fight.
    "When I talk about it, Ares or treason all renew" Ares was the Greek god of war and treason can often lead to wars.
    "Big Me to talk about i, I could stand to provet" Being ironic about starting the conversation, sarcastically saying it took guts.
    "If we can get around it I know that it's true" saying that if they make peace, then they can put this certain argument in the past and move on.

    Song MeaningI like the conversation that turns into a fight theory, but that ain't it. It's a love song written for his wife. From the mouth of the horse himself: "That was a song I wrote for my wife. I didn't think that she would be too happy if I wrote a song like Weenie Beenie about her, so I wrote a little love pop song called Big Me. It's just a cuddly little love song."

    General CommentI've been a fan of Foo Fighters since they formed. I searched for loose change around my house (with some help from my sister's piggy bank) to buy "The Colour and the Shape". Big Me was their first hit, and in my opinion, their best song. Simple.
