    a long queation

    below is a song by Reamonn . (Named supergirl and I think it's a beautiful song.)

    I can't understand the meaning of the sentences below :
    1. You can tell by the way
    2.She walks that she's my girl
    3.she talks she rules the world
    4.I got lost on the way
    5.She's sowing seeds she's burning trees

    lyrics:
    You can tell by the way
    She walks that she's my girl

    You can tell by the way
    she talks she rules the world
    You can see in her eyes
    that no one is her chief
    She's my girl - My Supergirl

    And then she'd say it's OK
    I got lost on the way
    But I'm a Supergirl
    and Supergirls don't cry
    And she'd say it's allright
    I got home late last night
    ButI'm a Supergirl
    and Supergirls just fly

    And then she'd say
    that nothing can go wrong
    When you're in love
    what can go wrong
    And then she'd laugh
    the night time into the day
    Pushing her fears, further along

    And then she'd say it's OK
    I got lost on the way
    But I'm a Supergirl
    and Supergirls don't cry
    And she'd say it's allright
    I got home late last night
    But I'm a Supergirl
    and Supergirls just fly
    Then she'd shout down the line
    tell me she's got no more time
    Cause she's a Supergirl
    and Supergirls don't cry

    And then she'd scream in my face
    tell me to leave leave this place
    Cause she's a Supergirl
    and Supergirls just fly
    Yes She's a Supergirl, a Supergirl

    She's sowing seeds she's burning trees
    She's sowing seeds she's burning trees
    Yes she's a Supergirl, a Supergirl
    A Supergirl - My Supergirl


    thanks

    The problem with these pop songs is that no-one punctuates them.

    #1/#2 are one sentence: "You can tell by the way she walks that she's my girl."

    "You can tell by the way she talks that she rules the world."

    "Then she'd say, "It's ok, I got lost on the way, but I'm a Supergirl and Supergirls don't cry'."


    "She's sowing seed, she's burning trees" I suspect is merely a neat sound to go into the song's structure and hasn't any particular meaning.

    "She's sowing seeds, she's burning trees" << this i believe him saying that she is planting the seed of love, yet not letting the trees to live. She instead burns them.

    So in other words, she sets someone's heart on fire, but because she is so troubled and has so much inner conflict, she is tearing those people's hearts out right after.

    It's very metaphoric and i love it, I am actually getting that as a tattoo because it reminds me of myself in my relationships!
