Cadd9 'cause it won't take much for me to show my life ain't over yet. G D I wake up scared, I wake up strange. Cadd9 I wake up wondering if anything in my life is ever going to change. G D Em I wake up scared, I wake up strange. Cadd9 G and everything around me stays the same.
G D I couldn't tell you that I was wrong,. Cadd9 chickened out, grabbed a pen and paper, sat down and I wrote this song. G D I couldn't tell you that you were right,. Cadd9 so instead I looked in the mirror, watched TV, laid awake all night. This song, just like all songs is set to be interpreted by the listener. A lot of us can relate to it based upon specific lines, but the ones I've always had trouble with interpreting for myself was the line "We've got these chains that hang around our necks People want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath" Now then this could go into a controversial topic but i personally view it now before and after reading your comments that it's about people trying to control our lives and we're suffocated before we get our first real breathe of freedom, we go from immature children and go directly from there into high school and people expect you to be mature, then college where your immature again or your to focused on passing to let yourself be seen.
I'm going to say this song is about being born and trapped into a world where being yourself is considered wrong by a lot of people, it's also about loving somebody but being unable to either see them or more literally "be" with them. I must agree that it is indeed a very powerful song and anybody who can't see it as such i will pity.
General Comment So powerful this song is to me, that I wrote my son, currently away at college to apologize to him if I ever boxed him in with expectations and pre-conceived notions of what he should, could, would be in his life. General Comment Comment: I Had to create an account to make this comment.
That was overdue though. I first heard this song around I loved it ever since. Interpretation: When we are born people have all these expectations for us. These expectations may be to go to school, to be straight, good, what ever. You are not asked what you want but the expectations exist independently.
For example, My parents raised me protestant so my sisters and I are expected to be protestant-Christian. When you grow up, you start going through the motions of what is expected. As you get older, you will start questioning why and what you are doing. When I was about 16, I started to doubt my faith. So, it was a struggle to be who I was verses what was expected of me. I think the chains are the expectations. The protagonists is struggling with what to do. He is 'wakes about scared' strange' because of this struggle and identity crises of sort.
I am not too sure after this but.. The girl is in the same struggle.
She does not have the preexisting expectations for him to be good, strong, smart. He is looking to her to affirm him, that he can be who he is becoming. He affirms her that she is 'a pretty girl' the last lines of the song. A hair shirt is meant to irritate the skin. It is often wore as a penitence. The cross is a burden one must carry. So, maybe something with her did not work out. It is a constant irritation to him. It is a burden he is carrying. Only she can lift it. He wants to be with her but he knows 'it isn't right'.
He is looking to her to save him. Overall, It is about putting faith in expectations. Expectations that are not yours but you try to meet. Namespaces Article Talk.
