The Cranberries - Twenty One

Recommended Posts

Twenty One

I don't think it's going to happen anymore.

You took my thoughts from me.

Now I want nothing more.

And did you think you could just take it all away?

I don't think it's happ'ning, this is what I say.

Leave me alone, leave me alone,

Leave me alone 'cause I found it all.

Twenty one, twenty one, twenty one...

So I don't think it's going to happen anymore.

I don't think it's going,

To happen anymore.

Twenty one, twenty one, twenty one... [X 2]

Today... [X 4]

Twenty one... [X 14]

Well - 21 is the age we become "adults" at least legally in most places; maybe she means "you" have tried to make her conform - or she is supposed to take up her role at the age of 21 - "did you think you could just take it all away" - meaning her "self" - her uniqueness. But who knows?

It's like analyzing poetry - just feel it and don't worry about what it means - it means what it means to you. :rockon:
