Miss Independent Lyrics

Miss independent
Miss self-sufficient
Miss keep your distance
Miss unafraid
Miss out of my way
Miss don't let a man interfere, no
Miss on her own
Miss almost grown
Miss never let a man help her off her throne
So, by keeping her heart...

    Please don't kill me for saying this, but I believe this song is about a woman who's acting like your "independant" feminist achretype, untill she falls in love. At first, she is hesitant because she believes that "a woman needs a man like a fish needs bysical," for some of the lyrics like "Miss don't let a man interfere, no," and, " Miss never let a man help her off her throne," describe that. Then she realizes that 3rd wave fiminism destroys both men and women and that it is radical by singing, "Surprise!It's
    time to feel what's real!"

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    In my opinion this song means, that she is singing that she does not need anyone and that her life is her own. Suddenly love comes in and just takes over. Even though the person can be independent, if love finds its way into the heart, then love can win and take over. Obviously the only person who really knows what this song is saying is The one who wrote it, but that is my interpretation of this song.

    I think she is saying she's a strong, independent, and maybe a little stubborn woman. She's been closed up from love for the longest time since her previous relationship. At first she doesn't have a whole lot of trust fit him and has her doubts. But it's still nevertheless love at first sight and she gives in and realizes he could be the one for her.

    I think it means she was keeping her heart guarded for so long she thought that she could never love, and then she found the right guy, and "love is true".

    In my opinion i think what shes trying to say in the lyrics is that she was independent and strong and protected herself from love and never thought that she would ever be so in love and then all of a sudden she fell in love and she wondered what happened to that strong independent girl.
