Both of Us Lyrics
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both us
Some day I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us
Ever thought about losing it
When your money’s all gone and you lose your whip

I think its about people who are not treated equally, who stand out from the crowd, are bullied, about racism. It's dedicated to those people so they know they're not alone, there are others like them. It's dedicated to those who mistreat people so they know its not going to make them cool. It's about our world.

This song is about how society is based only on how successful we are but all of us don't have the same skills. so is it fair to judge people on how we look or how wealthy we are? People try to make themselves look more then what they are because being judged unfairly. And then he is showing sympathy for all who have less and if he had the power he would change how society works to make it fair for everyone privileged in circumstance or not.

Trying to get by and have a family and be happy even if you live in poverty or are bullied or have had a hard past
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

I think that this song is about how everything is crumbling around these to people. And one is quickly losing hope, while the other barely has enough hope to hold themselves up such as the verse "I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us." And the other person is scrambling to get more hope to help out the falling one. And is saying hold on cause one day i'll have enough hope for both of us

I think it's about how we treat others! And that you should try to be who you are and even if it's hard right now someday you will have curage to stand out in the crowd.

What I got out of the song (and this is only my opinion) was that you have to see the bigger picture. It may not look like the hardship will end, you may think that you'll never be happy again, but their is always a light at the end of the tunnel. There will always be someone going through a similar situation. Other people have troubles aswell, we can overcome our problems and work together.

I thought it was about someone having a depressed/suicidal friend, and that the person wishes (s)he could make his/her friend happy, but isn't strong enough to do that
