    strange expression

    Hi, I'd like to know what the folloeing sentence in capital letters mean

    That's the way it seemed
    disappointment haunted all my dreams
    then I saw your face
    Now I'm in love. I'm a believer

    Re: strange expression

    Hi Ripley

    The phrase 'out to get me' is usually used with people - "I think he's out to get me".

    If someone is out to get you, they want to hurt you or make problems for you. In the song, he says love was out to get him ... this means that he felt like every time he tried to have a relationship, he just got hurt or had problems.

    So it seemed like love was out to get him. We all feel a bit like that sometimes, right?
