Red Hot Chili Peppers – Meet Me At The Corner lyrics

Please don't ask me who,
Who you think I am
I could live without that
I'm just an modest man

Meet at the corner and tell
Tell me what to do
Cause I messed up on you
And had I known
All that I do now
I'm guessing were through now
Receding into the forest
I will
Lay around in wait
And I wait for you.

Please don't ask me where
Where you think I been
I've been a lot of places
But this could be my win

Meet at the corner wiil I
Tell me what to do
Cause I messed up on you
And had I known
All that I do now
I'm guessing were through now
Receding into the forest
I will
Lay around in wait
And I wait for you.

I feel so bad
I thought you wanna know
Something I want to show
I thought you ought to know

Please don't say you want
To keep in touch out there
To see you on the corner
Well that I just can't bare

Meet at the corner and tell
Tell me what to do
Cause I messed up on you
And had I known
All that I do now
I'm guessing were through now
Receding into the forest
I will
Lay around in wait

Hey and I turn
I turned my head and I thought
I saw a sign
From the gods
A sign from the gods
That you werent meant to be mine
And it's fine

Takin it all for a ride
Until the day when it's gone
Mystified by where
It all went wrong
When it's gone

I live and I learn
And I lose and I win
But it's better than ever
Whenever I'm in
I thank you girl
For everywhere that we've been

    He was in love with this girl, he's the one who messed up and he couldn't get over what he had done and kept thinking about it, but one day he saw a sign from the gods and realized they weren't meant to be. And instead he learned his lesson from it and is thankful for the relationship and decided to move on but still keep it in his heart.

    Its not a girl singing backup, that's josh up with someone but, and it says: "i feel so bad, i thought you'd wanna know, something i want to show, i thought you ought to know". So a) its not a female and b) therefore its not about a girl cheating on him saying "i thought you wouldn't know". When he says "please don't say you want to keep in touch out there, to see you on the corner, that i just can't bare" makes me think of when you break up with someone but try to remain friends, he's saying he can't see her out in public like everything's ok.

    I believe that it means: he has something to show that could forever change everything, but doesn't know where or how to show it now that circumstances have changed. He knows he's messed up, but he will wait out of sight for an opportunity to rise to the occasion. He's simpler than his subject thinks. He'll do whatever she says to make it right. Regret bears heavily on his mind. He wants to be content with his life with her so badly. He thought there was a good reason to not open up, but he was wrong. Reguardless of all this, he is still thankful for everything they've shared.

    Meet me at the corner song is all about a guy who is desperately asking help to his partner about what to do because he messed up.
    Really bad. So bad that he is having the idea of breaking up but still hoping that their meant for each other. He simply just want to talk about the problem and maybe come up with a solution. And the corner is their meeting place.

    This song and police station follow the same "i lost love" (heather) lyrics. But, I personally think anthony has mixed feelings about ending the relationship. He says in one he will "chase her down" and in this one talks about being happy he had the time with her and cherishes it. It's ridiculously complex that he would write his mixed feelings in two songs and makes me appreciate the songs even more.
