Meaning
I love this song and know pretty much all the words I really enjoyed learning it and teaching my friends I highly recommend that people try to learn it because it is definitely worth it! My teacher kept on asking who came next and I just kept going and going and going, he gave up eventually. I looked really smart when honestly I don't no much about the English monarchy but I know what I need to know. I love learning about history because it interesting and worth knowing, plus I like outsmarting my friend Georgina who loves horrible histories so much it isn't funny. Read more →

Meaning
From what I've seen, the opinions about this song's meaning are split between two; either the girl mentioned in these lyrics had a father who was depressed and committed suicide by shooting himself, or had a father in the military who was shot in combat. Reading the lyrics, I think either of these would work. It's obvious her father was shot, and that his family were concerned for his safety, and that would fit into both theories. However, the lyric 'but nobody knew he was dying inside' leads me to believe the first idea is true - that her father killed himself. Sad but beautiful and encouraging song, wonderfully laid out and so emotional. I love it. Read more →

Meaning
Back in the '70's and 80's when my life was falling apart, I was being verbally abused, told I was not worth anything, finding out my husband was gay, I knew I was better than that and God was still on the Throne. I heard this song and claimed it as my own and the words sustained me through each day. Because He Lives I can and did face the future. I have come through a better person than I even thought possible and God has supplied all I needs. I still weep when I sing this song and remember what God has done for me each and every day. He is Faithful! Read more →

Meaning added by mamajo
It's about a thought, which turns in to an emotion which turns in to an action. The thought is: "This life sucks, the emotion is: I'm so sad I need to forget, the action is: "dull the pain by the use of whatever will dull it. If we can change the thought (which may not even be reality) we can change the emotion and action that follows. It's a very sad situation that unfortunaltely so many relate to and buy in to.

It's no big deal, It's no big deal, It's no big deal
This is no big deal
This line is very self- explanatory, she's saying that it's no big deal, this is the way they always are and it's not unusual for them. It is to those people who would stop and stare, it's kinda saying
"What are y
ou looking at", because there's really nothing out of the ordinary to see.
