James Arthur: Impossible Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2012
someone told me I should take
caution when it comes to love,
And you were strong and I was not
My illusion, my mistake
I was careless, I forgot,
And now, when all is done there is nothing to say.

An amazing song. Though on the service it seems a really depressing song you have to realize that its also talking about forgiveness. It also shows a love that even though they broke up he/she still cares for the other person. I hope people give this song a second look when they say it's depressing. It's not that slow of a song and the meaning goes deeper than a breakup. Let's just say its not your typical depressing breakup song.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

The partner has broke your heart, betrayed you it says and done something you thought would be impossible thats why it hurts so much.

(This is just my idea, if you think its wrong thats ok, this is just how i see the song)
I think the other people on here are correct. This isn't your average depressing breakup song. The song shows how the other person still cares after they broke up. This shows that he wasn't being treated correctly and the other person did something to him that might have caused the breakup. He believed that it would be impossible for that to happen because he might have loved the other person to much. He talks about it being an illusion. Maybe he was talking about the illusion that his other, was perfect for him. But now he sees that they have done something wrong. But yet he is forgiving but feels defeated.

DO NOT SAY this song is depressing. It is heartfelt. But it does not sound like a depressing song. Just an idea.

Not your average break up song. Take a closer look the song shows love on the part of the writer. Not a depressing song. The lyrics are easy and show that though the writer was obviously not being treated right the writer had forgiveness. Almost like Taylor Swift, her songs are break up songs but you don't call her songs depressing.

It’s impossible to stop true love for someone to be recognized by your conscious. You can lie to others, even to yourself for a short while, but in the end you will give in or regret it forever.

When it comes to love it’s impossible for it to be perfect. You have the sad sides and the happy sides with several people. Nothing’s perfect that’s why perfection is impossible
