That's What You Get
Paramore Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

No sir
Well, I don't wanna be the blame, not anymore
It's your turn, so take a seat we're settling the final score
And why do we like to hurt so much?
I can't decide
You have made it harder just to go on
And why?
All the possibilities
Well, I was wrong

Alright, let's do this

That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa
That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa
I drowned out all my sense with the sound of its beating
And that's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa

Ladies and Gentlemen, Taylor York

I wonder, how am I supposed to feel when you're not here?
'Cause I burned every bridge I ever built when you were here
I still try, holding on to silly things, I never learn
Oh, why? All the possibilities, well
I'm sure you've heard

That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa
That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa
I drowned out all my sense with the sound of its beating
And that's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa

Now pain, make your way to me, to me
And I'll always be just so inviting
Well, if I ever start to think straight
This heart will start a riot in me
Let's start, start, hey

Why do we like to hurt so much?
Oh, why do we like to hurt so much? Chicago

That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa

That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa
That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa





Now I can't trust myself with anything but this
And that's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Paramore's song "That's What You Get" tell a story of heartbreak and the struggle to move on from a relationship that hasn't worked out. The song's protagonist is tired of feeling guilty for the end of the relationship and wants to settle the score once and for all. However, they question why we have a tendency to hold onto pain and hurt. Despite the pain, the singer is unable to move on completely and is haunted by the memories of the relationship. The sound of their own heart beats drowns out their sense, revealing that they cannot think clearly due to their emotional state. They question why they continue to hold onto things that hold no value and wonder if they will ever learn. The chorus repeats the phrase "that's what you get when you let your heart win," suggesting that the singer's emotions led to the downfall of the relationship. The song concludes with the singer admitting that they can no longer trust themselves with anything but their emotions.

Hayley is like this high school crush we never had.

@ploopybear

I had a high school crush that looked nearly exactly like her
so smol, could increase cuteness levels x3 at will (and did it randomly like a chaotic), talked a lot, and had 3 brothers 😂

@alexisalfar4055

@@ploopybear lucky you, i just have that high school vibe when i see her, especially at the early 2009s era.

@Civerius

If you were a fucking gang banger dude, but for us with long hair back in the 2000's these girls were the ABSOLUTE best ass you could get.

Very rare
