Feel Better Lyrics

I don't wanna feel better
No one's ever gonna love me like that again
I don't wanna get over you
I wanna sit with you in bed
I don't wanna feel better
I'd give anything to miss you again
I don't wanna get over it
I wanna get under it...

    The writer of the song was obsessively pursued by someone she didn't know very well and the pursuit was consummated in a very hot sexual way that won over the writer completely so that she also intensely fell in love with the pursuer. The writer may have been a virgin, or near virgin at the time. Definitely the first intense love she had ever experienced. It was very intense and great for awhile, but pretty soon serious problems in the relationship became obvious, leading to a break-up initiated by the pursuer. The writer was extremely upset about the loss and thought about suicide and became very confused. But she still craved that intensity of feeling loved and loving the person who had loved her although she knew the odds were way against it ever really working out. She continues to crave that high of feeling loved by someone that she loved intensely back.

    I think that thos song is her trying to vent about how she ruined her last relationship and just wants to go back to how things were.

    I think the song is about a person who had been manipulated and supposedly “loved” this person that made them feel special. The calm tone of voice in the song represents why this person feel special. They have no idea who they are, they are merely emotionless, and they are past the stage of being able to fully heal. So, instead of feeling like trash out of regrets, they listen to this person/people that use them for this talent that makes them feel good. So much in fact, it clogs up their emotions. “I had my cake, I ate it, it ate me too” Their power is the only thing that defines them. They’re not powerful, they are power. They are merely a husk walking around doing what they feel is right. Not in their eyes, but their manipulators. They send their (assuming short) lives never having a choice. When the part comes, “I had a right to die, a right to live, and a right to choose too,” means that they had every right to not die glued to their talent/blessing, they had everything to not just live under the light of life, but experience its warmth as well. And especially every right to not only make choices for themselves, but just have opinions, a personality. And after that line, the speaker starts to whimper and chuckle every now and then, showing that their shell is cracking. They think they love themselves. They think they love something that doesn’t even exist. As the song concludes, their inner child eventually gives up is ready to pass on without them. Hence all the “I guess I really loved you” despite being emotionless. They dreaded being their younger selves, but now when their rein of glory and entitlement had come to an end, they envied their younger selves, probably the first emotion they ever felt. They no longer have a soul, just their body. As it says, “But now you’re way over there, and I’m way over here, what am I gonna do?” In summary, it was a huge waste of years and youth. Such a beautiful life put to waste because even though it seemed like they were blessed by life, they were actually on the same level as everybody around them. So, they are the same as always, no friends and no heart. Only this time, they can feel it.

    my interpretation is that it's about falling for someone and them caring for you. But then taking it for granted and breaking things off and eventually regretting doing so. (Idk im basically going off of my past situations which made me love the song)

    I think the song is about the girl being in a very overwhelming and fast pace relationship which she relied on to feel happy, but when they broke up she craves the attention from her ex and would do anything to be loved or feel that rush of happiness again.

    I think this song is about someone she recently met is in love with her, and so is she. But what I understood from the lyrics "Now you're over there, and I'm way over here" is that he died, probably before she could even confess

    I think this song is about her getting groomed online. They manipulated her into thinking that no one could love her like they did, and when she realized what they did and reported them, she went into a mental spiral.

    I interpret the song to be about Gypsy Rose and how she basically finds someone on the internet that loved her and she wanted to get away from her mom who was making lies about her daughter having all these illnesses

    I interpret this song as a person who ended a toxic relationship. The lyrics "No one's ever gonna love me like that again" really show that. When you're in a relationship like that the other person manipulates you into feeling like you're really loved. "I'd give anything to miss you again" when you just leave a relationship like that you genuinely miss the other person because even tho they were terrible they at one point made you feel something. I really relate to this song but every interpretation is valid :)

    Lyric interpretation of this song. Girl feels worthless and unloved. She longs for her ended relationship with her ex-bf. He loved her but ended his relationship with her. For the recent comment, you have the same predicament with the writer. Like the writer's ex-bf and your ex-bf. They ended things, so that means they moved on. You have to move on to. You'll meet the guy who is meant for you. Live your life. Love your life. Have an intention or aim in life. Know your passion in life. Have a meaningful life without a bf/husband. Life is way precious to be in despair. Love yourself, your family, and your friends. Life is to be lived. You have to move on or else you will be stuck with the past. Live in the present moment. Feel better soon girl!

    my interpretation is mostly about me but yeah. I feel like the writer had a relationship while they weren't at their best state and they had to break up with the person and although they thought they moved on, they never did and they regret their actions so they dont think they deserve to feel better

    i believe it's falling in love with someone who isn't real , or someone you hardly know . like , falling in love w the man in your dreams , or falling in love w/ someone online n them being twice your age n using that to their advantage . after realizing this , it starts eating you up inside . it hurt you , and yet it made you feel wonderful . your heart ached but was set aflame . you don't want to feel better cuz of it . an even worse scenario , you're in a coma , n you liked someone when falling into the basically eternal sleep . you create a perfect world in your head , and you're so in love w/ them that you don't realize it was never real . at least that's what i got out of it .

    I interpreted it as the writer was in love with somebody and had a great relationship with them but then they died in some way.
