Britney Spears: Everytime Meaning
Song Released: 2004
Take my hand
Why are we
Our love is strong
Why carry on without me?
Everytime I try to fly
I fall without my wings
I feel so small
I guess I need you baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face,...

It's lyrics are a plea for forgiveness for inadvertently hurting a former lover.
Everyone knows this song is about Justin but it could mean something different as well. It actually tells two different stories. Cheating & Secret Love. If you listen to the lyrics, it’s also telling a story of a girl and boy being strangers who love each other but they’re not together. The boy gets a gf and seemingly moves on, while the girl is too devastated to move on and grow because she is so latched to the boy. Though, the boy still deeply loves the other girl but her weakness of being shy caused him pain of not knowing what it would be like with her. At night she prays that soon his face will go away so she can develop as a person.

I love that song. It’s my favorite songs, but it’s really cool and many of us. The song would made us so wonderful, and sometimes when I make this album. This really helps.

I love this song alot. She poured her heart out which isn't a typical thing for Britney to do. Shes asking her lover to forgive her after she hurt him. She sees hes moved on easily and is also hurting because their love was strong, so now in order for her to move on all she can do is pray cuz she keeps seeing his face in her mind at night. She wants her pain to fade away in time as well. She feels like he was her angel and feels guilty for betraying her lover, so without him she realized she can no longer fly. Its like a bird with a broken wing but instead its a broken heart..so sad. Listen to Pair of Wings by Justin and everything will add up and make sense, its his reply to this song lol. It took him a long time to reply, but hes letting her know he still sees her.

Britney wrote this song in response to Justin Timberlake's Cry Me A River. She cheated on him and this is her apology.

Well, I believe this song is about how Britney loves someone, but she betrayed him/her (Or, just did something wrong while with him/her). Its practically an apology.
"Notice me, take my hand. Why are we strangers when our love is strong? Why carry on without me?"
Britney is kind of saying that this lover should try to be with her again (notice her, and take her hand). She doesn't understand why her lover would try to go on without her, when they have such an obvious connection.
"Everytime I try to fly, I fall without my wings. I feel so small. I guess I need you baby"
Metaphorically speaking, this lover is her wings. When she tries to fly, which could possibly mean anything, honestly. She is attempting to do something, but without her lover (her wings) she falls, or fails. And she is realizing she needs this love.
"I make believe that you are here. Its the only way I see clear"
Kind of self explanatory, but I'll explain a little bit. She can't believe that he's not here with her, so to keep from going insane, she just pretends that he's with her anyway.
"What have I done? You seem to move on easy"
She regrets what she did to break her lover and herself up. Yet, he seems to forget her so easily, and she doesn't understand.
"I may have made it rain, please forgive me."
By 'Making it rain' she means that she did something wrong, and she is pointing out that she knows whatever she did was wrong, and is asking for forgiveness.
"My weakness cause you pain, and this song is my sorry"
Also rather self-explanatory, but I'll give a little bit. Her not being able to change, or stop doing something, caused him pain, or disabled him from being able to love her entirely.
"At night I pray, that soon your face will fade away"
She is waiting, praying, for a moment when she won't think about him. There is nothing else on her mind, and she cannot forget him.
I hope that helped, or seemed accurate! Thanks for keeping my thoughts in mind!
