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.
'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.'
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'...
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
