Songs and their meanings


Music. A universal language found anywhere in the world. There are different music genres, like EDM, Rock, Jazz, Pop, Country, and Blues. But have you ever wondered, "Why did the artist create this", "What inspired the artist to write this song", or "What is the artist trying to say?". Today we will look at 20 songs and their lyrics, and identify what the artist is trying to say.
(*Note: Some of the meanings may be wrong, and only the artist knows the song thoroughly. This is based on some people and my opinion.)

1. Heartless, by The Weeknd


Why? 'Cause I'm heartless
And I'm back to my ways 'cause I'm heartless
All this money and this pain got me heartless
Low life for life 'cause I'm heartless
Said I'm heartless
Tryna be a better man, but I'm heartless
Never be a weddin' plan for the heartless
Low life for life 'cause I'm heartless

The chorus talks about himself, asking why he keeps on changing his attitude, or personality. Someone told him he's heartless, which is why he kept repeating it throughout the chorus. Every time he tries to change, his heart gets broken into pieces.

2. Lose You to Love Me, by Selena Gomez


We'd always go into it blindly
I needed to lose you to find me
This dancing was killing me softly
I needed to hate you to love me, yeah

The pre-chorus talks about someone who she put first from anyone else. She eventually realized and realized that she needed to forget about him. According to elle.com, Gomez said, "I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.". This suggests that the song is created for others with a similar situation, amd needs to change.

3. How to Save a Life, by The Fray


Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life
How to save a life

Throughout the song, the artist talks about suicide; its actions to someone, and the result to it. The line "How to save a life" is repeated throughout the song, giving information that someone died, and giving awareness to help others with suicidal problems.

The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

5. Man in the Mirror, by Michael Jackson


Second Stanza & Chorus
I've been a victim of a selfish kinda love
It's time that I realize
There are some with no home
Not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me pretending that they're not alone

In this verse, Michael Jackson talks about people without homes, or in poverty. He calls out some people who ignore them, including himself. He realizes that some of those people are alone, and have no one to help them.

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change.

He talks about himself, asking to change his perspection in life and to others. He refers to himself as "the man in the mirror", realizing the need to change to create peace and equality to all people. He strongly implies the message, Change starts in yourself.
