Done - The Band Perry



The Experience:

"I don't wanna be your just for fun, Don't wanna be under your thumb. All I wanna be is…done." This is not a song about slamming someone. What Kimberley Perry really wants is true love, and that's why she's dumping him. 
She wants a serious relationship - not just for fun. She wants to give love AND to receive love, not to be under his thumb. When she realizes he's just full of selfish ways, it's time to find true love somewhere else. Done.

Music Video:
Love's done for. Boy meets girl has turned into girl vs. boy. The battle is a chess game of the girl now getting her own back.  

My Take:
Love's about giving your heart and receiving his. If it's not for real, then someone wants to eat his cake and have yours too. If you're getting less than true love, it's time to say, Done.

Ask Yourself:

Is your boyfriend just for fun? Do you demand him stuff to keep him under your thumb
Or is he tearing you down? Can you draw the line for him?

LYRICS.

You've been wearing that crown and tearing me down
It's been a while since you've treated me right
You strung me along for far to long because I never gave up the fight
Until now

It's gonna hit you hard Til You see stars
Gonna put through you a world of hurt
Oh I don't believe in getting even but giving what you deserve
Oh my, oh my

Mama always told me that I should play nice
She didn't know you when she gave me that advice
I'm through, with you
You're one bridge I'd like to burn
Bottle up the ashes, smash the urn
I'm through with you, la ti da
I don't wanna be your just for fun,
Don't wanna be under your thumb
All I wanna be is…done
Done

You crossed the line too many times,
I'm gonna put you in your place
You play with dynamite don't be surprised when I blow up in your face
Oh my, oh my

Mama always told me that I should play nice
She didn't know you when she gave me that advice
I'm through, with you
You're one bridge I'd like to burn
Bottle up the ashes, smash the urn
I'm through with you, la ti da
I don't wanna be part of your fun,
Don't wanna be under your thumb
All I wanna be is…done
Done

(Done) with your selfish ways
And all the games you play
I'm through with you and everything you say

(Fiddle Solo)

Mama told me that I should play nice
She didn't know you when she gave that advice

Mama always told me that I should play nice,
But she didn't know you when she gave that advice
I'm through, with you
You're one bridge I'd like to burn
Bottle up the ashes, smash the urn
I'm through with you, la ti da
I don't wanna be your just for fun,
Don't wanna be under your thumb
All I wanna be is…done
Done

Hey ooh,
I wanna be done (so done)
So done (so done)
So done
