    Example - Changed the way ...

    Here is the lyrics for the song "Changed the way you kiss me" by Example

    Or afraid of flying now
    I've never been afraid of the wildest fights
    Not afraid of dying
    But now I want off this ride 'cause you're scaring me and I don't like where we're going
    I need a new fun fair 'cause you're scaring me and I don't like where we're going

    And now you're gonna miss me
    I know you're gonna miss me
    I guarantee you'll miss me 'cause you changed the way you kiss me

    'cause you changed the way you kiss me

    We used to be so so soulful
    Al Green on the background vocals
    T-Total we're on the next high
    We get by with a so called soul mate made for each other chit chat
    But that dried up wise up to the cutting edge facts
    Now I'm chilling on my Jack Jones
    Looking for a way back home but I can't get back

    Our love feels wrong please wind it back
    Our love feels wrong can't hide the cracks
    I guarantee you'll miss me 'cause you changed the way you kiss me

    I've never been afraid of the highest heights
    Or afraid of flying now
    I've never been afraid of the wildest fights
    Not afraid of dying
    I need a new fun fair 'cause you're scaring me and I don't like where we're going
    I guarantee you'll miss me 'cause you changed the way you kiss me

    'cause you changed the way you kiss me

    Our love feels wrong please wind it back
    Our love feels wrong can't hide the cracks
    I guarantee you'll miss me 'cause you changed the way you kiss me
    I guarantee you'll miss me 'cause you changed the way you kiss me
    I see that there is a possibility for splitting for the singer's character and his girlfriend. Something strengthen up between them. Is there any hint from the sentence "you'll miss me 'cause you changed the way you kiss me" who's going to start this splitting or who is in the first place who changed his(her) attitude to another one?

    CoffeeCup,

    This is a good one! Just on the line alone, I'd say no. It could go either way. However, when you read the rest of the lyrics, it's pretty clear that the singer is leaving the girl.

    This sentence makes no sense to me. Unless the guy doesn't like that the girl changed how she kiss?? But that's not right either.

    It's probably meant more to be catchy than meaningful.. but I could interpret it as a) the change in kissing style denotes that there's another lover, and therefore she's cheating, so he's leaving, and she'll miss him; or b) a change in tension representing a change in the relationship.. ever notice (I have) that before a cheater heads off to cheat, there's a change in their level of interest in the relationship?

    yes, but if she's already found another lover, what makes the singer think that she will miss him? She's dumped him, right, and he just doesn't know it? But, not worth writing about it anymore.

    no..... I got out of it something else completly... He told her he was dumping her so.... She changed the way she kissed him. Maybe more passoinately to try and make him change his mind. Or more tenderly and longingly as if she was saying goodbye but just couldn't let go... so her kiss was different and he knew she still had feelings for him. it wasn't just a peck on the lips like when you kiss your guy goodbye to go to work or shopping... this kiss had a different meaning.

    rockzmom, after rereading it, I think you are right. I don't get the above line, though. Maybe it's like he'd be willing to try again but wants more from her than a different kind of kiss?

    On this one, I believe he is saying that whatever relationship they had has recently changed, and he wants it back to going the old way.

    Example: They were just casual lovers and she pressed him for more of a commitment, maybe to move in together or spend more time together... let's get serious now I want you to start thinking about marriage and kids... kind of a move and he went along for a little while and realized that is NOT what he wants and can it go back to the old way that it was??

    which would lead us into this line....

    But now I want off this ride 'cause you're scaring me and I don't like where we're going
    He doesn't like how things have progressed and wants out ("off this ride").
