PostSubject: Play A Part   Mon 9 Aug 2010 - 15:42

Let's GO!

You were right
I was wrong from the beginning
Wrong from the very first night
When you said
We could stay here forever
And never ever, ever forget
So we took our love to the sea that night
So see if it could ever swim back
it did and it did
Four hundred thousand times
Over again


I only wanted to play a part
I wanted to be someone
Who could make it and make it with you
Again and again

Well go on, go on
You can have your way
I’ll love you till the day that i die
You could have this life
And a cup of tea
And take it to bed right now
In a dim lit bar on my side of town
I’ll picture in a green dress
The one that makes me feel alive
Over and over and over again


I only wanted to play a part
I wanted to be someone
Who could make it and make it with you
Again and again

Only wanted to play a part
I wanted to be someone
Who could make it and make it with you
Again and again


Wanted to play the part
Wanted to be someone
With you


I only wanted to play a part
I wanted to be someone
Who could make it and make it with you
Again and again

In my opinion, these lyrics have a very sensual connotation grin2

Soooo, what do I think about that song? I think it's about a failed relationship again. I love all those metaphors and images the lyrics create. The "speaker" thought he could manage to be with his partner but he failed. He wasn't the person his partner wanted to be with. So they decided to live their lives without the other.
(I know I wouldn't get an "A" at school for this interpretation but that's what's in my mind right now about the song.)

My lack of imagination costs me 8 hours laughing
Good interpretation Songbird smile

i love your interpretation too Songbird !
i had aproximatively the same feeling about this song, though some lyrics are still a bit confused in my mind (i mean i don't really see what the narator means sometimes... but as English isn't my mother tongue... =/)

To my ears the lyrics sound really grown-up. And it's brave to make the decision to end an relationship 'though you're still in love with each other, but you've noticed it won't work in any way.
