I'd interpret it that he was a high class twunt to be honest

thesouthsbelle Wed 30-Sep-09 14:08:41

there's a lot of inner termoil goin on there.

Illhavethisinsize12 Wed 30-Sep-09 14:09:43

twunt lol

still dont get it

Good grief.

Quoting DReam lyrics hmm

I wouldn't even waste my time if I were you. He either doesn't has the intelligence to spell out what he is trying to say and thinking some shoddy half rate lyrics from a 90s 2 hit wonder will suffice...or he is being deliberately opague and giggling as he imagines you poring over them for hours agonising over what they mean.

Just ask him if you are that bothered.

thats exactly what i dont want to do. i wanted him to tell me how he feels and i got this. please help lol

I wouldn;t bother trying to interpret. Who knows what he means - but then who cares?!

colditz Wed 30-Sep-09 14:13:48

Awww. It means he loves you <<hopeless romantic>>

Illhavethisinsize12 Wed 30-Sep-09 14:14:07

just wondered what other people would interp it as.

PrincessToadstool Wed 30-Sep-09 14:15:25

I'd interpret it as a great big warning sign that he is a twat and I'd be so glad it was over.

Illhavethisinsize12 Wed 30-Sep-09 14:15:29

i thought it meant that things could only get better now it was all over
doing my head it, to old for this lol

BitOfFun Wed 30-Sep-09 14:15:41

That Tony Blair is his idol?

I think he is saying he is confused and wants to change - IMO.

Illhavethisinsize12 Wed 30-Sep-09 14:17:32

thanks everyone :-(

theworldsgoneDMmad Wed 30-Sep-09 14:19:52

Pretty clear cut as others have said. The only thing I'm confused about is what D:Ream's 2nd hit was, notyummy!

Illhavethisinsize12 Wed 30-Sep-09 14:20:30

to change or a change

Illhavethisinsize12 Wed 30-Sep-09 14:21:26

how is it clear cut, all i have had is that he is a twat and twunt lol

I'm sorry, I can't hear this without seeing John Prescott trying to sing and dance on Election night 1997, so this has somewhat skewed my view....

I think it's another variation on the "It's not you, it's me...." guff that we've all trotted out in our time. Mind you, there would have been better songs than this one to say that.

notyummy Wed 30-Sep-09 14:24:03

All hail Wikipedia...

'D:Ream was a Northern Irish pop rock / synthpop and dance band of the 1990s. They had one UK Number One hit with the re-release of "Things Can Only Get Better"; two Top 10 hits coupled with four Top 20 hits: the re-release of "U R The Best Thing", "Take Me Away", "Party Up the World", and the second re-release of "Things Can Only Get Better"; plus five other releases that all reached the UK Singles Chart.[1]'

Even more than two....

Sorry, but I still stand by my original comments. It's the sort of thing a 15 year old would do - not a grown man. Well done for moving on without him.

iihavethisinsize12 - I think the problem is that the lyrics are incredibly vague and ambivalent so could be interpreted in many, many ways. I could give you numerous interpretations of what they mean - but I have no idea what your ex is getting at.

Send him back some much less ambivalent ones - I recommend something from Alanis Morrisette's first album 'Jagged Little Pill'...

Illhavethisinsize12 Wed 30-Sep-09 14:28:42

i asked him to explain how he felt and waht he wanted. this is what i got!!

pingviner Wed 30-Sep-09 14:33:19

it means he either cannot work out what he feels, or he cannot make the effort to have a stab at doing so
or that he thinks some vauge near universal waffely pop lyrics are apparently profoundly relevant to your unique personalities and relationships

it means you should quit wasting the headspace

notyummy Wed 30-Sep-09 14:34:30

Ok, I give in. I think it means:

You don't understand me

You are stronger/better than me

I will try and learn some lessons from you and take them with me

I will try and be a better a person in future because I will have learned from you.

Why can't he just TELL you??

My interpretation is that he has awful taste in music and you are better off without him.

Truly cringeworthy
