It's My Life Lyrics

It's funny how I find myself
In love with you
If I could buy my reasoning
I'd pay to lose
One half won't do

I've asked myself
How much do you
Commit yourself?

It's my life
Don't you forget
It's my life
It never ends (It never...

    The lyrics of "It's My Life" by Gwen Stefani are pretty simple to understand.

    A girl is surprised that she has fallen in love with a guy. She isn't sure how much he commits himself. She knows its her life and there are choices she must make to see if this is really love. She says that she seems blinded by her love for him, she sometimes forgets about the times she's been betrayed. She realizes that she can't let the influence of the crowd "caught in the crowd" influence her decisions about whether the love is real or not.

    She IS busy to be betrayed by men.She doubts if she must kill each One due to avoid the pain because she suffered being used by other relationships.Finally she became into unsensitive and fatal murderer woman,she IS willing to rebel against injustice world...She is blamed to death why the supposed víctims are enjoying watching her dying,Who is the real bad character?

    Whether “we” realize it or not, we all wrote these lyrics, because we’re all merely fragmented versions of the same singular conscious being.

    “It’s funny how I find myself in love with you”
    -References the ironic nature of love, hate, etc., due to any form of duality being the construct of the one conscious being.

    “If I could buy my reasoning, I’d pay to lose. One half won’t do.”
    -Imagine yourself as the singular conscious being you are; or “God” if you prefer. You can, and do absolutely anything imaginable; pure untethered creation. Yet everything you do is only possible within your own conscious reality. Meaning even though you may be God, you can’t know anything outside your realm of existence. You know absolutely everything within your reality because it has all been created by yourself. The only unknown is any aspect about the creation of your own existence. You might as well consider yourself as a light switch that was turned on and can’t be turned off. So the option to “buy your reasoning of existence” is moot if it doesn’t also come with the ability to turn yourself off. Infinite creation in infinite realities leads you to crave the only thing you’re unable to achieve; Non-existene.

    A lot of songs talk about toxic relationships. This one is great though because you never let a current relationship take over your life. Love yourself before loving others.

    I feel is like she fell in love with a man and he and his friends joined in to hurt her .. She thinks she killed them but it wasn't..she is saying its my life .. And In courts she gotta had a reason to kill Thee man but nobody its caring about her just her victims..

    I feel like this song means that she fell in love with a man and she questions how much he committed himself and she kills him. So she starts going on a killing spree

    It's my life. And if you put your faith in Christ it never ends. Caught in the crowd means the rapture. The saved have eternal life and are at peace with God whereas the Lost have eternal hell.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    She is in love with thought of being in love. She is insatiable. Once she has had/or gets all she needs/wants from the man/relationship, she is done with it and the man and moves on to the next one. But, by doing so she jeopardize's her freedoms in life and her reputation.

    These lyrics aren't by Gwen Stefani. The song was written by Mark Hollis and Tim Friese-Greene of Talk Talk. No Doubt covered the tune in 2003.
