An amazing song, starts gentle, lyrically moving in verse and grows into a monster chorus which is raw in places. Hardly a good choice for Christmas number one, but the original here is much better than any cover of it. Sang in the style and feeling ringing out loud the true meaning of the song.
Personally i have no x factor grudge, it's there for whoever wants it and it's great that biffy are getting noticed as they are an amazing band and it is an amazing song, just if you buy 2 songs this week buy this one as well. Combined cost of £1.18 which seems a bargain!!
Its meant to be about a man who falls in love with a woman who doesn't love him back in the same way, she's dishonest and untrustworthy but she's still worth the trouble for him to love her. From the lyrics you can gather that they must have had some separation maybe due to an argument and he's explaining that although they argue and in they're love its a struggle to be together all the struggle holds them closer to one and other.
UPDATE: 15:00 13th December 2010 Also just to note the laws on covers and permission not being needed from the original artist just so you know:
My understanding is that a compulsory mechanical license will enable the new artist to record a previously released song, sell it on CD and make it available for purchase through digital download. All of this can be done without any prermission from the original label, publisher or artist.Read more ›
