I'm sorry but
Don't wanna talk, I need a moment before I go
It's nothing personal
I draw the blinds
They don't need to see me cry
'Cause even if they understand
They don't understand
So then when I'm finished
I'm all 'bout my business and...

    It could be about a female who has trust issues with other people. As all the other people have said or done stuff to make her feel different or outcasted, and so she's retreated into herself and put walls up to keep it from happening again. Therefore the line "I draw the blinds" means she's put up walls, and the next line "they don't need to see me cry" kinda is like sure they've hurt my feelings and stuff but I don't need to give them the satisfaction of seeing those words work.

    In the chorus there's the lines "So take aim and fire away, i've never been so wide awake" means she's ready for whatever society says to her that's why the next lines are "no, nobody but me can keep me safe, I'm on my way" because she can't trust anyone but herself and is leaving the society where they make her feel different.

    i think it's about a girl who is hurt by things done or said by other people,maybe had lost a friend, and she decides to changes and vows to not be hurt by what people say and go ON HER WAY, because other people cant "keep her safe" which i am sure is a metaphor.

    this is based on sabrina carpenter's part. cause it's english.

    This song maybe is about a girl who is about to die of some disease she despair.
    (1) The part "i need a moment before i go" means she's recalling every sweet and suffered memory she remember.
    (2) While"Its nothing personal" could be mean that death will not choose anybody it likes, it just take and take every soul on earth.Everyone will die and thats why she insist that death is nothing personal.Everybody will meet death.
    (3) Lastly, the sentence: So then when I'm finished bla bla Save the World bla bla means she's ready to reunited with her loved one in the nextlife and saving her world from this painful reality.

    In this song,there is a teen girl who loves FPS game so much. She also likes PUBG and wanna be pro in there and get a chicken dinner. Her team mates died and She's now alone. She's playing now Solo vs Squad. She needs AWM and Groza. She sees enemy and taking aim to kill them XD

    I have to admit it is a very unique song, in its own way. We can call it a forever green song. It maybe about a teen girl...who feels different amongst her peers...or others. The reality is...that if you know someone who is suicidal....you can show them this song. In many ways it tells us the truth...about how someone feels.
    It has multiple meanings to it.....it can be applied to the youth of today and will always be the utmost beautiful song in the world....always. If one has the desire to acheive they can certainly......by this way....Im on my way. The blood moon is on the rise......fire burning in my eyes.....simply means....we are what we choose to be.
    Thanks to everyone.

    It might be a girl that broke up with her boyfriend (the spanish part just translate it if you want) because she wants to sacrifice herself to save the world thats why "its nothing personal" cause its for the world and also why the spanish part pretty much said "i love you dont leave" and thats why the girl "drew the blinds" so that he cant know that she is crying she still loves him but chooses to save the world instead or just by watching the music vid its interpretation can be as simple as just her leaving the boy just to complete some mission or research because he was distracting her

    I think the girl wants to take high aim..She doesn't care of anybody..She knows that only she can save herself..Nobody can't help her..in past,she has done to please everybody..But now she knows she can't be favourite of everybody..She has a different quality but someone has hurt her for this..Now she doesn't care of it
