    Meaning of A Lyrics

    If I had a type then baby itd be you
    .....
    If I never lied, then baby youd be the truth
    .....
    Winter or summertime
    When I get you on the springs
    Imma make you fall


    What do they exactly mean one by one?

    They are song lyrics. We generally find that it's a waste of our time and yours to analyse song lyrics. They frequently aren't grammatical, they may not make sense and can be just strings of words put together because they rhyme or scan better than others.

    Well, without asking the person who wrote the song what they meant, all we can do is guess.

    If you really want to know my "translation" of those lines, here you are:

    If I was attracted to one sort of person then, darling, it would be people like you.
    If I only ever told the truth, you would be the truth that I would tell
    In the winter or in the summer
    When we go to bed (presumably to have sex)
    I will make you fall in love with me or I will make you have an orgasm

    I think we can all agree the original is probably much more pleasant on the ear.

    Volcano1985 - as 5jj said, please read my earlier post (post 2). Analysing song lyrics is not a good use of your time or ours.

    The only reason I gave my "translation" of the first few lines you posted, was to show how we can only guess at the meaning. My version, though my best guess at the meaning, was somewhat facetious.

    Please don't post any more lyrics. Thank you.
