Easy come, easy go
That's just how you live, oh
Take, take, take it all,
But you never give
Should have known you was trouble from the first kiss, Had your eyes wide open -
Why were they open?
Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the...

    When i heard the song i did not think much of it, however when i saw the video it occured to me that it alludes to Jesus and the stations of the cross.

    The piano, being wooden and heavy, symbolizes the cross. The Latin men yelling and tormenting Bruno symbolize the soldiers, Jewish people and bystanders who doubted Jesus, the son of God.

    The women who cheated on him symbolizes Judus.

    "Easy come, easy go
    That's just how you live, oh
    Take, take, take it all,
    But you never give
    . . .
    Gave you all I had
    And you tossed it in the trash
    You tossed it in the trash, you did
    To give me all your love is all I ever asked,
    Cause what you don't understand is
    I’d catch a grenade for ya
    Throw my hand on a blade for ya
    I’d jump in front of a train for ya
    You know I'd do anything for ya
    Oh, oh
    I would go through all this pain,
    Take a bullet straight through my brain,
    Yes, I would die for ya baby;
    But you won't do the same"

    Jesus died for our sins, but we cant be bothered to repent for them. His love for us knew no bounds.

    My interpretation is that itt's about a guy that is in love with a girl that NEVER loved him. She was just playing him, which is a common thing that guys do in most songs. The song is just simply that and you can clearly interpret it from the lyrics

    A guy loves this girl so much that he would do almost anything just to see her smile. But he knows deep down that this girl would never do the same for him

    I think Bruno loves this girl so much he would die for her. She never loved him though

    Well I think it is talking mainly about how love fails to stay in one place. And that people should stop being suicidal.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think this song was about told us of a man that very love a woman and the woman just made him gave up with all of his acts that he did ...... And all of around him just humiliate him because of his "gave up" of that woman that he loved .....

    I think this song is about a guy who would do anything, give anything,and would do absolutely everything to keep his girlfriend safe. However, that wasn't enough for her. Even thou he's broken-hearted he would still do anything for her and she knows that. P.S. The piano he's dragging in the music video is the same one in the music video for "Just the Way you Are!!!"

    I think this song is about a guy who did everything, gave everything, and would do anything for his girlfriend. However it wasn't enough for her, so she ran off with another man. His heart is shattered, but he would still do anything her.

    A music video was released on November 19, 2010, directed by NABIL.[27] It involves Mars's efforts to sing to a woman he loves after dragging an upright piano with a rope tied to it through Los Angeles.[3][28][29] He wears a suit and encounters a gang and a pit bull along the way.[28][30] When he reaches the woman's house and finds out she is with another man, he drags himself and the piano in front of a train. As the train approaches Bruno, the video cuts to black. Scenes also feature the singer singing in a dark bedroom, looking out of a rainy window.[30]

    In a behind-the-scenes video, Mars explained, "The concept of the video is my struggle, to tell this girl I'd do anything for her, so I'm going as far as dragging a piano to get to her just so I can sing my heart out."[

    This song frustrates me. Why is this guy willing to kill himself for a girl that clearly doesn't love him?

    soldiers give their life for the love for their country, but what does the government do for them, their wife/husband and children while they are deployed or killed in action. What does the government do for soldiers after mental and physical mutilation...

    Not only the government, but we owe these brave Americans our lives and the best we can give them, so we can sleep and live in peace, security, freedom.

    How about the millions the politicians waste in their campaigning, etc.

    =) =) =) This song iz about Bruno and his love for a girl,he will do anything for this girl. A line in the song goes:
    "I would catch a grande for ya,
    jump in front of a train for ya"
    So he is saying that he loves this girl so much that he will kill,or put himself in danger for the girl he loves...BUT the girl doesnt feel the same way and ends up cheating on him!!!! =) =) =)

    Urhm, ALL of Bruno Mars' lyrics are reeeally straightforward. It needs no explanation. It is a good song, except for this lyric I was just a little bit puzzled when i first heard it: "Had your eyes wide open - Why were they open?"
    That's just a really stupid lyric. It sounds like he couldn't come up with a better line than to question some girl's eyelids.

    This is a horrible song..in my opinion. Without reading into it too much, it's just a song about unrequited love...he would do all these things for her eventhough she doesnt feel the same. After reading other posts, I can understand now why people may think it's about his cocaine addiction. He would do anything to get a fix..but cocaine doesnt love you back..it just destroys your life. It doesnt seem like a song that would have a deeper meaning but when you think about it..it makes sense
