City And Colour – Little Hell lyrics

What if I can't be all that you need me to be?
We've got a good thing going, we have some promises to keep.
But my addiction, it can be such a detriment.
Please believe in this my dear, I am more than penitent.

What if everything's just the way that it will be?
Could it be that I am meant to cause you all this grief?
My warship's a-lying off the coast of your delicate heart,
And my aim is steady and true as it's been right from the start.

There's a degree of difficulty in dealing with me.
From my haunted past comes a daunting task of living through memories.
If we could just hang a mirror on the bedroom wall
Stare into the past, and forget it all...

So when we leave it'll be a quick midnight escape.
We'll disconnect ourselves from all of yesterday.
I'll dig for water and fashion our very own wishing well.
Then, we'll throw our coins down hoping to rid us of this little hell.

There's a degree of difficulty in dealing with me.
From my haunted past comes a daunting task of living through memories.
If we could just hang a mirror on the bedroom wall
Stare into the past, and forget it all...

Will we get out of this little hell?
Will we get out of this little hell?
Will we get out of this little hell?
Will we get out of this little hell?

    This song is about haunting past memories and how its affecting his present relationship. He knows that he has to let all the bad memories frm the past go in order to move forward but its easier sad than done. It needs to happen or hes gong to ruin his relationship. He knows hes difficult to deal W. And he acknowledges that hes been dweling on the past but bottom line get over it and move forward!

    Pretty much I knew it was a meaning about dealing with problems with his wife. Like how an argument cause such trouble in a relationship and how it effects both sides so much because you love each other so much. How its like being in a little hell when you argue with someone and all you want is for it to stop and its hard sometime to do so. I can relate a lot to his side.

    The meaning that I get from this is that we all on little hell. , earth, all deal with some kind of trial or tribulation and that its hard to forget some of the things we have done in the past so obviously we all want out and I honestly think when they say "will we get out of this little hell" I think I means will we get off the this earth and be with the lord. Which some of us will and some of us will not.

    Thi song means to me that While the rest of the world is worried about everything that could cause tragedy we ignore what truly matters, and we ignore the fact that our world is broken. Our society stands by the regulations set by the higher standings of our day to day lives, bosses, teachers, parents, even our friends. It's not nessasarily a demanding cause, but a reminder that we all must chose our paths and accept the outcome.
