Tanita Tikaram – Preyed Upon lyrics

Lyrics taken from

  • u
    Means we all need energy and we take it from other "living" things, sometimes against the will of those "living" things. Humans betray each other, and for reason. They "prey upon" each other. They need things, energy in particular. Humans more or less devour each other for their energy. No one is perfect, and even if we were we'd still need energy. The song says that you can expect to be betrayed every time you are not "all alone. " but somehow the message of the song is positive, about bettering oneself and others. But don't expect not to be "preyed upon. " you can only avoid that by being "all alone. "
