In this article, and in many future posts, I just want to share how I’m interpreting the song. Why? My line of thought is:
Every individual is different. Experiences and Perspectives belongs to none other than self. Therefore, like many things, music could have been interpreted or could bear meaning that is as unique as oneself. It can be something you could relate to, a stress reliever, something to set the mood or express a feeling.
So I want to take the time, when school isn’t weighing me down, to ask you what songs mean to you?
This song expresses the perplexed emotions of a man who must let go of a woman that he loves simply because of the fact he does love her and she has a chance to be happy, which was something that he could not do. In my mind, I see a couple that has been on-and-off, and they’re having one last meal together. He’s giving her his blessings and at this point he’d be telling her that he’s “sorry” and ” I do love you” and ” you deserve better” and “It’s my fault”. But when you look at the core of what he’s feeling, he’s feeling bitter-sweet because he has no choice in the matter of her moving on and he must do the same.
