Show Me How
Men I Trust Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Show me how you care
Tell me how you loved before
Show me how you smile
Tell me why your hands are cold
(Show me how)

I'm turning around, I'm having visions of you
Then I understand
The friend I'm dreaming of is far away
But I'm here, I'm here

Show me how you're proud
Tell me how you reach the moon
My thoughts err away tonight
My heart fell to love again
(Show me how)

I'm turning around, I'm having visions of you
Then I understand
The friend I'm dreaming of is far away
And doesn't feel my love




But I do
I do

Show me how you care,
Tell me how you were loved before
Show me how you smile,
Tell me why your hands are cold

I’m turning around,
I’m having visions of you
But then I understand
The friend I’m dreaming of is far away
But I’m here... I’m here

Show me how you’re proud,
Tell me how you reach the moon

My thoughts err away tonight
My heart fell to love again

I’m turning around I’m having visions of you
But then I understand
The friend I’m dreaming of is far away
And doesn’t feel my love
But I do... I do

The beginning is a bit melancholy , but as she goes into the chorus it brightens up. I get a bittersweet, longing feeling when I listen to this.

My favorite part about this song is the fact that you can listen to it after falling in love and falling out of it and the lyrics mean different things.
