    meaning of a sentence

    Hi there,

    There is a sentence in Robbie William's song "Feel" that I don't understand. Perhaps someone could explain it to me. The sentence is:
    "Before I roll my eyes, I can see myself coming"
    I understand that "rolling eyes" is looking up when someone is angry or fed up, but I don't understand the hole sentence at all.

    Thanks

    Robbie Williams is a lunatic so anything he says is to be taken with a pinch of salt. I don't know the song but I would imagine the boy has a sexual innuendo in there somewhere

    Hi,
    I sort of like Robin William, like a long time ago since I was in High School. I think now I have moved on. Anyhow, the song ‘Feel’ I have checked the lyric and I’m sorry I don’t see where it says ‘Before I roll my eyes, I can see myself coming’. Because if you didn’t listen to the whole song and just only read that part it’s sort of sound naughty.

    Part of the ‘Feel’ Lyrics
    ……
    Scare myself to death
    That's why I keep on running
    Before I've arrived
    I can see myself coming
    I just wanna feel
    Real love fill the home that I live in
    'Cause I got too much life
    Running thru my veins
    Going to waste
    And I need to feel
    Real love and the love ever after
    I can not get enough

    …..

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.

    That is the text I have. It's different as the one you have,I don't know why...
    The setence alone could have a sexual connotation as Cumudgeon said, but I don't think it's the case here.

    Scare myself to dead
    That's why I keep on running
    Before I roll eye
    I can see myself coming
    I just wanna feel
    Real love fill the home that I live in
    Cos I got too much life
    Running thru my veins
    Going to waste
    And I need to feel
    Real love and the love ever after
    I can not get enough
