The word harbor usually means a place where ships dock, but here, it also means “a place of safety and comfort”.

She violated his state of stability by entering the relationship and hurting him. Specifically, she abandoned him, hence “waited in the rain”.

She literalizes the cliche that the heart’s a romantic organ. She gives a brief visceral description to show how he lacks empathy.

“Vainful” is also a pun of “vein”. He’s especially self-centered.

“Cut the line” refers to releasing a fish by cutting it from the fishing rod. Basically, let her free.

This aquatic metaphor builds onto the song’s main image.

Metaphorically, this song depicts a music box ballerina who yearns to escape its container. She’s sick of rotating around day after day and want her soul to fly free—even if that involves breaking her.

Literally, it’s about Lindsey wanting to escape her anorexia, which she suffered from when she was younger. It can also apply to anything that traps a person, and they want to be free from.

The latter provides the main theme of Shatter Me. The album’s all about freedom and liberation, free from one’s fear and free to create.

At first sight, he seems like a handsome good guy, but when further examined, he’s merely a wishy-washy jerk.

He’s like a weed that pretended to be a flower, a common adaption tactic.

The phrase “dodge the bullet” means to avoid a serious problem. Which he clearly failed to do.

The bullet being his own enforces that he brought the problem upon himself. In this case, it’s her leaving him, and rightfully so. He did everything wrong, and he got all defensive with his excuses (lines he made).

She uses literal death to create a simile involving the end of the relationship. Although both parties are perfectly alive, it was like death to leave. They made too many good memories for her to move on easily.

According to the band, the first part of the chorus are their favorite lyrics.

She’s not just an old flame, but one that hasn’t had time to dim. So she’s simply sad.

At least those like Kimbra had time for the love to tamper over the years, but for this singer, it’s still immediate and painful.

Her friend left rather unceremoniously, as if she was a bad scarf she gave to the Exchange and Returns counter. Like that, he’s friends with other people, and she’s pained by it.

The singer wants to make the subject her man, but the chances look slim. However, he shows hints of wanting to be with her. The door of opportunity is open for the taking.

""Get Lucky," and "Lose Yourself To Dance."" (Rock Genius – #1 Daft Punk - Random Access Memories) | pending

“Get Lucky” by a mile. It’s an iconic throwback brought into modern times. “Lose Yourself To Dance” comes off as too anchored in the past.

Does anyone know whatever Charli XCX actually sings in this song, or is it just a writing feature?

"Na na na na, na na na na / Hey-ee ay-ee ay-ee ay ay-ee ay..." (Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – Can't Hold Us) | accepted

These simple lyrics are used unironically to amplify the song’s party atmosphere.

Hey, sometimes you have to let yourself go, surrender yourself to the night, and dance, dance, dance like you own and your people own it.

One of the lines that are repeated are repeated three times.

Shouldn’t some of the explanations be split?

"And yes, maybe just a touch of tourettes" (Nicki Minaj – Roman Holiday) | accepted

Not to mention Nicki Minaj just dropped a lot of curses and twitches.

"We can shoot a movie, we can bang like Rambo" (Nicki Minaj – Va Va Voom) | rejected

Nicki already pulled out the gun metaphors in “Roman Reloaded”, but she still has plenty of ammo left.

"My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki" (Nicki Minaj – Starships) | rejected

Something to add:

Also, unlike all the other promotional singles she had released for Roman Reloaded, she is rapping as herself, as opposed to her alter ego, Roman.

“Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well”

Considering the Middle-Eastern vibe, the “bad girl” can be considered the ones which break out of their society’s rules.

“My oh me, my”

It’s actually “My, oh me, why?”
