The woman is laying in bed waiting for her man to come home He looks at her She keeps his abusiveness to herself saying that no one needs to know She recalls a time when she was strong and and had the naive view of her world being perfect. I have been through this and this song describes the psychology of it perfectly. Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech.
As he opens the door, she rolls over. Pretends to sleep as he looks her over. She feeds him. He is sucking the life out of her. He needs to have somebody to abuse in order to feel powerful, and she is there to fill that role for him.
The abuse is so psychologically damaging that the person being abused can become addicted to their abuser and to the abuse cycle. This is why most women who leave abusive relationships will go back many times before they finally leave for good.
So well written. My daughter is in a relationship with a guy that doesn't deserve her and is an addict. She is 20 and has been dealing with him on and off for 3 years. I kicked her out 3 weeks ago and she tells me she wants to leave him, but it just isn't that easy. She feels responsible for him, she worries about him.
Truthfully, this bastabrd has crushed her self esteem and dreams. This song has her wrote all over it. I sent it to this morning, after I heard it. I hope and pray she can get away from him. Love this song. I take it as she's practicing her lies and she doesn't want him to move on and find someone else while she's doing her own thing and has interest in someone waiting for that to work out but until then she strings him along.
And feed him lines that she loves him know and he'll come back again if I don't work out. Vedder has dedicated this to "The bastard who married my mother.
The guy is coming home at 4 - in the morning!! She's fed up with him staying out late, probably boozing and carrying on. She is thinking about what she's going to say this time that might get through to him, since anything she's said before doesn't seem to work.
He's still doing the same damn thing. She pretends she's asleep so she doesn't have to deal with him or maybe say something that will start a fight. Because she knows only too well what will come of that.
Thank you Eddie Vedder for that song! It has a lot of meaning of how man treats a woman and how weak a woman can be to abuse in all forms. I read that Eddie wrote this about his own mother, because she was in an abusive relationship and didn't really have power to do anything about it. When he first performed this song live, he was very emotional, so this song really means a lot to him. In my own humble opinion No I have not cheated on you today In bed he looks you over This fear that if you don't lie and tell you that you love him But the thing is she leaves and goes back because he works his charm No one needs to know" I the strong woman within wants to say somethins but "she" the woman she has become I never knew the true definition of this song until I began walking through this very situation He is in jail now Not a pretty truth A woman is stuck in a loveless and abusive relationship.
She lacks the courage, strength and self-respect to end the relationship. She dreams of killing him. She rationalizes her inaction by claiming there is no one better out there for her.
That she needs him despite his abuse. She recalls back when she was young and ready to take on the world, but now she is broken, afraid and shuttered. A tragic song. This song reminds me of my ol girlfriend, she was so beautiful. An i know she was thinking of her boyfriend at the time Yea he's a federal agent now ,and contols her very much. Wish she knew how much shes worth.. I broke it down: Waitin', watchin' the clock It's four o'clock, it's got to stop Tell him, take no more She practices her speech, as he opens the door She rolls over Pretends to sleep as he looks her over The woman in the story is possibly being abused by her husband.
She tells herself that she's finally going to tell him off. She practices what she'll say to him. But when he comes home she rolls over and is to afraid to tell him. She dreams of being strong and passionate enough to tell him off, but she just can't. She tries to tell herself that he really does love her. Talkin', to herself there's no one else Who needs to know She, tells herself, oh She keeps the abuse to herself and can't even tell family or friends.
Memories back when she was bold and strong And waiting for the world to, come along Swears she knew it, now she swears he's gone rpt 1 She looks back and remembers when she was a strong woman and how the abuse has changed her for the worse. She finally tries to leave, tells her self that she's done with him and his abuse, but deep down she can't escape.
She lies and says she still loves him Can't find a better man She dreams in color, she dreams in red Can't find a better man Can't find a better man She's still trying to convince herself that he'll change and that she loves him.. She loved him, yeah She don't want to leave this way She feeds him, yeah That's why she'll be back again She remembers when she first met him, before the abuse.
She recalls a time when their relationship was based on love and so she tries to hold on to that and say that he'll go back to how he used to be.
Can't find a better man My favorite!!! My interpretation is that this woman has not had a good life and kind of fell in a situation with this man who is not terrible but certainly does not treat her well. She tells herself she is in love with him because it's just easier that way. When she dreams in red it's because she knows in her heart he has done her wrong in so many ways. She knows she deserves more yet feels obligated to her situation She can find a better man but her excuse is she just can't find a better man.
Before I found out lead singer, Eddie Vedder wrote this song for his mother who was abused by her husband, his step father. I thought it was about a man who is having an affair with a woman who is unhappy in her relationship but can't find the courage to leave it. Waitin',watchin' the clock It's four o'clock, it's got to stop Tell him, take no more She practices her speech, as he opens the door She rolls over Pretends to sleep as he looks her over The first part of the song is the girl waiting for the guy she is in the relationship with to come home.
Then when he gets home and opens the door she pretends to sleep because she doesn't have the courage to tell him she wants out of the relationship. Then she goes back to the guy she's cheating with guy singing song and tells him that she's "in love" with the guy she is with and can't find a better man The guy singing the song is telling the story of how unhappy she is and how she keeps lying to herself by saying she can't find a better man Then at the end of the song the singer says, "She lies and says she still loves him She don't want to leave this way.
I was drinking a lot late one night and that is how I interpreted this awesome song. Take it for what it's worth This song is about a woman. She's been with a man for quite a while, but she doesn't really love him. She don't want to leave this way She feeds him,yeah That's why she'll be back again". Login Register Login with Facebook.
