I'm With You - Avril Lavigne



www.lastfm.de

The Experience: In I'm With You Avril Lavigne asks a painful question that troubles each and every person. Am I worth loving? Do I matter? We each have to find the answer to this question in our own lives. Have you found your answer?


Music video: The video cuts back and forth between Avril wondering across town alone and her memories of a party earlier that evening. She arrives alone to the party looking for a mysterious someone whom even she does not know. She pays her cover charge and works her way through the party searching. Few people even bother the approach her and the one guy who does clearly has one interest only and he gets his just deserves as she shoves him off into the crowd. Getting fed up with the party she grabs her coat and heads out onto the streets as the video cuts back to the realtime Avril, cold and alone as she wanders the dark and deserted streets of the city.


The Meaning: Avril Lavigne speaks for many people as she sings about her desire to be wanted and loved by someone ...I'm standing on a bridge, I'm waiting in the dark. Sadly she is apparently still in search of this person ...I thought that you'd be here by now. And this has left her with a bleeding wound: Isn't anyone trying to find me? Won't somebody come take me home? Am I worth loving? Will anyone come for me? She can't face this world on her own ...won't you take me by the hand?... and shouldn't have to ...I don't know who you are, But I... I'm with you.

Ask yourself: Am I able to see these deeper questions in the lives of those around me? What am I doing to help them find the answer?



LYRICS:

I'm standing on a bridge
I'm waiting in the dark
I thought that you'd be here by now
There's nothing but the rain
No footsteps on the ground
I'm listening but there's no sound

Isn't anyone trying to find me?
Won't somebody come take me home?

It's a damn cold night
Trying to figure out this life
Won't you take me by the hand?
Take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are
But I... I'm with you
I'm with you

I'm looking for a place
I'm searching for a face
Is anybody here I know
'Cause nothing's going right
And everything's a mess
And no one likes to be alone

Isn't anyone trying to find me?
Won't somebody come take me home?

It's a damn cold night
Trying to figure out this life
Won't you take me by the hand?
Take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are
But I... I'm with you
I'm with you

Oh why is everything so confusing
Maybe I'm just out of my mind
Yeah-he-yaa, yeah-he-yah, yeah-he-yah, yeah-he-yah, yeah!

It's a damn cold night
Trying to figure out this life
Won't you take me by the hand?
Take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are
But I... I'm with you
I'm with you

Take me by the hand
Take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are
But I... I'm with you
I'm with you

Take me by the hand
Take me somewhere new
I don't know who you are
But I... I'm with you
I'm with you
I'm with you...
