Corrupting song lyrics

(1/2) > >>

Have you ever listened to a song and thought the lyrics could have alternate meanings?
I have, and the results can often be quite dark and disturbing!

Several lines from This Heart Will Love Again by Steps can be misinterpreted easily.

You won't be here tomorrow
But I'll get through the sorrow, baby
(Why won't your boyfriend be here tomorrow? Are you planning on killing him?)

I'll keep the fires burning, though my heart's breaking
'Cause every day I'm learning, life's for the taking
(I see. You're going to take his life by burning him to death!)

No matter what, I know that in the end
At least I can be certain, this heart will love again
(You pyromaniac murderer! Do you honestly think someone else will love you after what you plan to do?)

So, can you come up with anything?
Put the actual lyrics here with your own interpretation in brackets underneath.

And it's not very hard

Spoiler: showTo see why!

And every last inch of me's covered with hair!

Spoiler: showEverywhere, you say? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Captain Jigglypuff:
Every Breath That You Take can easily be interpreted as Death watching you and waiting to strike if you change the notation to a minor key and play it slower than usual.

I only kiss, kiss, kiss when the sun don't shine,

Thank god she didn't say where the sun don't shine!

Vengaboys songs definitely have weird lyrics

Here's another:
8 o'clock, get up, get out of bed
I feel like a truck ran over my head

How can anyone feel like a truck ran over their head? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think a person would be killed if that were to actually happen. It is completely impossible to tell someone what it feels like to be killed.

The Rembrandts: I'll be there for you.

"You're still in bed at ten and work began at eight
You burned your breakfast so far things are going great"

Who the hell cooks breakfast when they're two hours late for work!?

"Your mother warned you there'd be days like these"

But isn't the first line of the song "So no one told you life was going to be this way"?

Stupid song.
