The Meaning of Shape of You by Ed Sheeran

Shape of You is a track from the Divide album by Ed Sheeran. It has been pushed around as a single and topped a lot of charts. It took me awhile to get accustomed to this type of song from Ed Sheeran as it seemed a bit different from the rest of his works. At…

The Meaning of Love Yourself by Justin Bieber

I really enjoy some of Justin Bieber’s new music. His lyrics seem to be gaining more depth and meaning as he advances further into adulthood. Even though some of the lyrics in this song are kind of immature and “high schoolish” we can still find meaning and relate to the scenarios described in the lyrics…

The Meaning of Hello by Adele

We’ve all done things that we regret, things we can’t undo, things that maybe we wish could take back. We all get to a point in our lives where we start to wonder about and reflect upon the decisions that we made that got us to the point we’re at. We do this when we…

The Meaning of Stay With Me by Sam Smith

I don’t believe it was necessarily the song or its lyrics that made this song popular, but rather, the impressive voice of Sam Smith. There are 6 pieces of this song and 4 of them are the Chorus, while the lyrics are few, the impact of this song is massive. The song dwells on the…

The Meaning of Shake It Off by Taylor Swift

If any song ever expressed the “I don’t care what others think attitude” this is the song that does it. While I’m not particularly a Taylor Swift fan I think she did a really good job of moving away from the realm of bad breakups and fantasy love stories that trumpeted as the theme of…

The Meaning of Not a Bad Thing by Justin Timberlake

Both men and women that have been through tough relationships end up feeling like they aren’t worthy of being loved. The effects of a bad relationship can be so traumatizing that people end up building walls to avoid intimacy and commitment to others. They begin to attach the feeling of pain and misery to the feeling of love. They know…

The Meaning of All of Me by John Legend

This is one of the most beautiful love songs ever composed. It’s filled with brutal honesty, not just that fluffy fairy tale shit. The song is an admission that every relationship can have its issues and you can overcome them as long as you accept each other and give it your all. Make someone your…

The Meaning of Say Something by A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera

This is a very touching song that can have a lot of meanings. It goes beyond relationships and into something much deeper — the regrets, worries, and significance of separation from a loved one. Being separated from a good friend, family member, or significant other whether it’s from death, a breakup, or a fall out…

The Meaning of Royals by Lorde

This song is all about being proud to be from humble origins and not needing the lifestyles of the rich and famous to be happy. The singer prefers to keep to her roots and to remember where she came from. She also makes references to how the media glorifies the fancy lifestyle and lures people…

The Meaning of Everything Has Changed By Taylor Swift

This song is about exploring love, maybe for the first time. Love at first sight comes with strong feelings — feelings so powerful that you doubt their existence. Remember the very first time you met someone and felt an immediate attraction? You seem to have problems speaking to them because your mind runs wild with…
