Generally I don't clearly understand lyrics.
This is a song titled 'Bruised':
I've got my things, I'm good to go
You met me at the terminal
Just one more plane ride and it's done
We stood like statues at the gate
Vacation's come and gone too late
There's so much sun where I'm from
I had to give it away, had to give you away
And we spent four days on an
Island at your family's old hotel
Sometimes perfection can be
It can be perfect hell, perfect...
Hours pass, and she still counts the minutes
That I am not there, I swear I didn't mean
For it to feel like this
Like every inch of me is bruised, bruised
And don't fly fast. Oh, pilot can you help me?
Can you make this last? This plane is all I got
So keep it steady, now
Cause every inch you see is bruised
I lace my Chucks, I walk the aisle
I take my pills, the babies cry
All I hear is what's playing through
The in-flight radio
Now every word of every song
I ever heard that made me wanna stay
Is what's playing through
The in-flight radio, and I
And I am, finally waking up
1 What's done? Does it mean 'I have to be separated from you'?
2 I'm not sure of 'too late'. What is too late?
3 I don't get what the phrase 'Sometimes perfection can be It can be perfect hell, perfect...' mean.
4 I don't get the scene. Where is she? And where is he? On the plane?
5 If he is on the plane alone, what's the point of his request to the pilot?
Sorry it's too long
Thank you in advance
it's done - it's over; it's finished
Usually vacations end too soon, not too late.
She is not on the plane. ("...she still counts the minutes that I'm not there.")
Maybe the lyrics are suposed to be a bit mysterious.
