“I believe this song may simply be a statement that living a single life is often preferable to having a partner, despite many people having a fear of being alone or believe they are missing out on being loved. “How should I hold this girlfriend, as I tight as I ever could, Now why should I? No reason why” could refer to the conflict people feel when trying to display affection and trying not to be ‘overbearing’. Also, why not holding on as tight as he can, he doesn’t fear losing this ‘girlfriend’, he accepts whatever. He states that ‘sometimes I am nowhere to be found’ this could mean that being an artistic person, he lives outside of the conventions of a lot of people, in terms of jobs, children etc. He is lost in his own creative world and this conflicts with many people. Also people encourage others to try their hardest to be interesting and romantic, even if it is a facade, ‘sometimes I’ve got nothing to say, nothing to sing about to make you lie awake” “sometimes we’ve got nothing to talk about, nothing to agree on” simply means that people often have ridiculous notions of how to act in a relationship, why bother pretending to be something you are not? Why try hard to fulfill another person’s expectation?
Finally ‘show me something good, show me something’ could be a rhetorical question, as in ‘prove to me why I shouldn’t feel like this?’ Sometimes it’s best to leave some relationships as nothing more than fun, not to try and live by ridiculous rules.”
“For me, being agreeable had transformed into something ugly and submissive, where at times I did not recognize myself. During arguments, I would attempt to be accommodating; however, when alone, I was caught up in self-pity and resentment.”
“As someone who prides herself on being independent, this was excruciating. The very last thing I ever wanted to do was ask for help, and there I was, needing it in a very big way.”
1. Admit what you’re incapable of.
2. Swallow your pride.
3. Ask for help.
