    Hi guys I have a doubt about the song "I'm Yours"

    My doubt is the expression "fall through the cracks" found in the song "I'm Yours" by. The brazilian translation shows the idea of being cheated and deceived, which really makes sense. But in a online dictionary is writen: "to be overlooked, missed, or neglected". However, the first impression I had when I saw this expression in the lyrics was that it meant to be knocked out or shaked by the woman's beauty. Which meanings best fit for the song?

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    See you!!!

    If these are the words to the song:

    "I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
    I fell right through the cracks, now I'm trying to get back"

    I believe your first impression is correct.

    Usually, to "fall through the cracks" means to experience a misfortune because of someone's neglect. This meaning does not seem to fit with these song lyrics, however.
