Lady in White
Rebelution Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Try an test me now, watch out
Listen you ain't a thing to me
You ain't exactly yourself
Call here and get shut down
Listen I ain't a fool to you, to me, to anyone else
She says I sleep with me tonight
I won't say a thing, I can't even tell a lie
Lady in white resist me your right
I'm in love with you, your the spark in my life, yeah

So treat me like your own kind
I've been trying to fight my mind against whats real
And I can see the road sign telling me to stop
I'm searching through the hills
Whats that to say I'm a real chump losing it
That's okay cause I know your wrong
Either way I will be ten times better than
Wave your hands, say good bye so long

Watch who your talking to
Watch who your talking to
Watch who your talking to
Watch who your talking to

Surprise, give me a kiss and hold me tight
Just like old times, just a couple lines
My, well you and I are so a like
Tingling in the body, sparkle in the eye
I may not be a saint but I'm sexy
I put you in a daze cause I'm pretty
And I should see the sun but you never let me
Line after line, sometimes to many

So who am I to blame?
I point the finger at a lady I can't tame
She's got me handcuffed, locked up, and chained
And the addiction is the name of the game
Whoa, I'll try to walk away like I know I should



I'll try to slip away like I know I should
I'll try to walk away like I know I should

Overall Meaning

The song Lady In White by Rebelution seems to be about a person, likely the singer, in a self-destructive relationship with someone he is incredibly attracted to. The first verse introduces this person as someone who tries to test the singer and shut him down, but also someone he can't resist sleeping with. The chorus is addressed to this person, who is likened to a "Lady in White," and describes her as a spark in his life that he is in love with, but who also resists him. The singer seems to be struggling with his feelings, aware that he should walk away, but unable to resist the pull of this person.


The second verse suggests that the singer may be aware that his obsession with this person is something he needs to fight against. He sees a "road sign" telling him to stop, but he is searching through the hills, perhaps looking for a way to justify his feelings or rationalize his behavior. He also suggests that he is willing to be a "real chump" if it means being with this person. The bridge repeats the chorus but emphasizes the addictive and almost unhealthy nature of the relationship. The singer acknowledges that he can't tame this person, that he is handcuffed, locked up, and chained, unable to walk away.


Overall, the song seems to describe a person who knows they are in a harmful and potentially self-destructive relationship but is unable or unwilling to let go. The "Lady in White" is a metaphor for the person who is simultaneously a source of attraction and inspiration but also danger.

You ain't exactly yourself
You're not being true to who you really are


Call here and get shut down
If you try to reach out to me, you'll be ignored


Listen I ain't a fool to you, to me, to anyone else
I'm not stupid, not for you, not for me, not for anyone else

She invites me to spend the night with her


I won't say a thing, I can't even tell a lie
I won't speak, I can't even pretend


Lady in white resist me your right
Woman in white, you have the right to refuse me


I'm in love with you, your the spark in my life, yeah
I'm deeply in love with you, you bring light to my life


So treat me like your own kind
Treat me with respect and like your equal


I've been trying to fight my mind against whats real
I'm struggling to accept reality and what's true


And I can see the road sign telling me to stop
I see the sign that says to end things and move on


I'm searching through the hills
I'm trying to find a solution or escape

Watch who your talking to
Be careful whom you speak with


Surprise, give me a kiss and hold me tight
Surprise me, give me a passionate kiss and embrace


Just like old times, just a couple lines
Reminiscent of past experiences (likely drug use)


My, well you and I are so a like
We are very similar, more than you realize


Tingling in the body, sparkle in the eye
A physical sensation and an excited emotion


I may not be a saint but I'm sexy
I'm not perfect, but I have a desirable allure


I put you in a daze cause I'm pretty
My beauty can leave you feeling stunned and confused


And I should see the sun but you never let me
I should see the light and move on, but you hold me back


Line after line, sometimes to many
Repetitive (drug) use to a degree that can be harmful


So who am I to blame?
I question who is responsible for my situation


I point the finger at a lady I can't tame
I blame a woman I cannot control or change


She's got me handcuffed, locked up, and chained
She has control over me, keeping me confined


And the addiction is the name of the game
The addiction is what's driving and controlling everything


Whoa, I'll try to walk away like I know I should
I'll try to leave and move on as I know I should


I'll try to slip away like I know I should
I'll attempt to sneak away and end things as I should


I'll try to walk away like I know I should
Once more, I'll try to leave and do what's best for me
