I think that it's really good in breakup love songs (from the point of view of the person losing their lover) when the song is very understanding of the feelings and maybe repeats a line which sums up exactly how terrible it is to feel like that, but subtly changes the line the last time that it is sang to be hopeful and make those listening to the song who are going through that feel a bit better about themselves.

For instance, in the song Always by Saliva, the crux of the chorus for most of the song is the line,

"I just can't take any more this life of solitude, I guess that I'm out the door and now I'm done with you."

But the line changes in the final chorus to,

"I just can't take any more this life of solitude, I pick myself off the floor and now I'm done with you."

It just changes the perspective for the person, it's like a pat on the back and some motivation for them to accept their situation and move on.

I can't think of any other examples, but I like that kind of thing.

"Never fight a man with a perm" sounds like sound advise. Thats a guy who has noting to loose, that is an angry man who welcomes death.

We are boxes on boxes
On boxes on boxes, haunted
And we have things we don't need
We are with and without in the road
So damn tired of being a lady
So damn bored of being a girl
Then again
If we look at it plainly
I'd feel the same if I were a boy

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again

Eh currently?

"Lying on the bathroom floor naked
Hiding coke inside all your orange pixie sticks
You take a rail & spread it on your tit

You’ve had a long list of lovers,
But none of them matter to you except me
I’ve had a long list of lovers,
But none of them matter to me except you."

Hmm maybe I should wake someone up... :p

"I'm sorry but
Don't wanna talk, I need a moment before I go
It's nothing personal
I draw the blinds
They don't need to see me cry
'Cause even if they understand
They don't understand
So then when I'm finished
I'm all 'bout my business and ready to save the world
I'm taking my misery
Make it my bitch; can't be everyone's favorite girl
So take aim and fire away
I've never been so wide awake
No, nobody but me can keep me safe
And I'm on my way
The blood moon is on the rise
The fire burning in my eyes
No, nobody but me can keep me safe
And I'm on my way" -- On My Way, by Alan Walker

"What does it mean if I tell you to "go fuck yourself"? Or if I say that you're beautiful to me? It's affection, always. Ooh; you gonna see it someday. My attention for you, even if it's not what you need"
