Sam Hunt: Break Up In A Small Town Meaning

Song Released: 2014

Break Up In A Small Town Lyrics

I knew I'd see her around
I'd be at some party, she'd show up and I'd be walking out
Across some parking lot, hiding behind her sister
I'd look up, she'd get red light beside me
In that white max with the sticker on the back
I'd act like I...

    Alright get this
    ma boi, sam...
    He lives in a small town, he breaks up with his girl... A little too close to home. But you gotta move or move on when you break up in a small town.

    but as sam hunt beautifully illustates, she's so far gone, but she didn't go far. Which enevidiblity occurs when you break up in a small town.

    That he broke up with someone but I can't see why they hide her face.maybe because she trying to hide or anything else that makes sense.Can u point out what this song means? Go watch the vid 2 times and see if u get it . The second time u listen to it pay attention so hard.And you'll get it . Thank u

    This song shows that Sam broke up with the "love" of his life because he felt like this is what he wanted at one point, but little did Sam understand what he was losing. He was probably so caught up in the moment of ending things with her that he didn't think about what it actually meant to lose the girl you love. The house is burning because it shows the meaning that he misses her and his life around him is shattering because he sees her with another guy around town and that destroys him.

    They break up. Got it?
    Now, the girl is with someone, but the catch is that they live in a small town, so the guy, Sam, sees them everywhere.
    Sam gets jealous, he sees them everywhere.
    He never thought that she would get down with somebody he knew, which adds to the jealousy.
    He states that you have to "move or move on if you break up in a small town"
    Move away or get over it.
    Their friends try to hide the girl and new guy's relationship from Sam, but he found out anyways, of course.
    In the video, Sam is in a burning house, maybe meaning that he's trapped or that his life is caving in around him, ether one.
    He wishes they were still together.
    It's hard moving on when you see the girl with her new guy everywhere. Got it? Good. :)

    I think that it is a song about a guy who breaks up with his girlfriend and he see's her everywhere with her new boyfriend. That's what happens when you break up in a small town.
