Lyrics of the day

TITLE : WHEN I WAS YOUR MAN
ARTISTE : BRUNO MARS

Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio but it don't sound the same
When our friends talk about you all it does is just tear me down
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name
It all just sounds like ooh
Mmmmm too young too dumb to realize
That I should've brought you flowers
And held your hands
Should've gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby's dancing
But she's dancing with another man

My pride, my ego my needs and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out of my life
Now I never never get to clean up the mess I made
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes

Chorus
Although it  hurts
I'll be the first to say I was wrong
Oh I know I'm probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know

I hope he buys you flowers
I hope he hold your hands
Give you all his hours
When he has the chance
Take you to every party
Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man

  1. In the song, 'When I was Your Man', I can
    conclude Bruno Mars' attitude toward relationships is that you should give everything you can give your loved one while you have the chance to. I like this song a lot, not just that though, it involves most of the literary devices in poetry! Basically, the whole chorus in the song, is telling you how this is a lyrics, so you can look at stanzas two and four. His conflicts, is that the one he loved, has walked away, and he is thinking of all the things he could have done for her (external). He thinks of the best for the one that left him, and just thinks hopefully the other man can do a better job than he did. The song, is a catchy one after awhile, its really slow and at some points, a lot of pauses, but at some times it's loud (changes his tone of it sometimes). Like most people kind of say, Bruno Mars writes about what girls want to hear, so basically the theme is to treat your loved ones with respect, or watch them leave you.

    1. Hey cupcake, if there's anything that makes me melt it's intelligence and the way you analyze issues here and other places I run into you is amazing!
      Well said, treat people right when you can before it's too late.

  4. It was a silly misconception/prank that brought about that rumour. (He denied it too). Nice song by the way, I'll recommend linkin park's hands held high for your next post nice song wit strong, deep lyrics. I easily relate it to Nigeria's current situation-timmy
