Something Super Sweet
Rory Webley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You keep telling me that we can fix this
But we can't, the scalpel in your hand
Is only gonna cut me again
And I don't wanna take that chance

Some things, they just don't last
You can't get a prescription for that
Quit shoving these sugar pills down my throat
Cause I'm starting to choke

Stop, don't resuscitate
Please don't, don't hesitate
Just let it die, we've had our time
We'll be alright

But then you give me ten CC's of something super sweet
Yeah, you put me to sleep
I'm getting drowsy
My eyelids are getting heavy
Kiss me on the cheek
Then you're telling me

Count down from ten
Ten, nine, eight
Seven, six
Five, four, three, two, one
When you rip my heart out
Please put it back when you're done
I'm too young for this open-heart surgery
There's stuffing in the place where my heart's meant to be
Why me?

You keep telling me that we'll get past this
But we're never gonna last
So just quit blasting me with your electrotherapy
And let's move past this

These things, they come alive in a flash
Sometimes, they die just as fast
Didn't Frankenstein teach you anything?
Don't revive dead things

Stop, don't resuscitate
Please don't, don't hesitate
Just let it die, we've had our time
We'll be alright

But then you give me ten CC's of something super sweet
Yeah, you put me to sleep
I'm getting drowsy
My eyelids are getting heavy
Kiss me on the cheek
Then you're telling me

Count down from ten
Ten, nine, eight
Seven, six
Five, four, three, two, one
When you rip my heart out
Please put it back when you're done
I'm too young for this open-heart surgery
There's stuffing in the place where my heart's meant to be
Why me?

Now I'm coming down from my high
And something just doesn't feel right
Yeah, the anesthetic's wearing off
And I'm starting to feel what I've lost
There's stuffing in the place where my heart was

But then you give me ten CC's of something super sweet
Yeah, you put me to sleep
I'm getting drowsy
My eyelids are getting heavy
Kiss me on the cheek
Then you're telling me

Count down from ten
Ten, nine, eight
Seven, six
Five, four, three, two, one
When you rip my heart out
Please put it back when you're done
I'm too young for this open-heart surgery




There's stuffing in the place where my heart's meant to be
Why me?

Overall Meaning

In the song "Something Super Sweet" by Rory Webley, the singer expresses his desire to end a toxic relationship. He begins by acknowledging his partner's repeated attempts to fix things between them, but recognizes that their efforts are only making things worse. He uses metaphors of surgery and medicine to convey the idea that the relationship is beyond repair and any further attempts to salvage it will lead to further harm. He calls for his partner to let the relationship end peacefully and not hold onto false hope.


The chorus of the song introduces the idea of a "something super sweet." It seems that this sweet substance is used to put the singer to sleep and numb his pain, allowing him to forget the troubles in the relationship. However, as he wakes up from the induced slumber, he realizes that his heart is still broken, and there is no quick fix that can mend it.


The lyrics convey a sense of desperation and helplessness, with the singer grasping at straws to try and make sense of the situation. The repeated countdowns to ten suggest a sense of finality and inevitability, as if the singer knows that the relationship is doomed, but cannot bring himself to accept it. Overall, "Something Super Sweet" is a poignant commentary on the struggles of navigating complicated relationships.


Line by Line Meaning

You keep telling me that we can fix this
You keep telling me that our relationship can be saved


But we can't, the scalpel in your hand
But your actions are only hurting me more


Is only gonna cut me again
Is only going to cause me more pain


And I don't wanna take that chance
And I don't want to risk getting hurt again


Some things, they just don't last
Some things are not meant to last forever


You can't get a prescription for that
No cure or solution exists for that


Quit shoving these sugar pills down my throat
Stop trying to make everything appear positive and sweet


Cause I'm starting to choke
Because it's becoming suffocating for me


Stop, don't resuscitate
Stop trying to revive our dying relationship


Please don't, don't hesitate
Please don't delay and prolong our agony


Just let it die, we've had our time
Let our relationship come to a natural end, we've had our moment


We'll be alright
We'll be okay eventually


But then you give me ten CC's of something super sweet
But then you try to make me feel good by overcompensating


Yeah, you put me to sleep
Yeah, you make me feel numb and relaxed


I'm getting drowsy
I'm becoming lethargic and listless


My eyelids are getting heavy
My eyes are becoming tired and closing


Kiss me on the cheek
Offering a false sense of affection


Then you're telling me
Then you are telling me something else


Count down from ten
Count down from ten to distract me


Ten, nine, eight
Ten, nine, eight


Seven, six
Seven, six


Five, four, three, two, one
Five, four, three, two, one


When you rip my heart out
When you break my heart


Please put it back when you're done
Please try not to damage my heart permanently


I'm too young for this open-heart surgery
I'm not emotionally prepared for the amount of pain this breakup is causing me


There's stuffing in the place where my heart's meant to be
I feel numb and am in emotional pain


Why me?
Why did I have to go through this heartache?


Now I'm coming down from my high
Now I'm realizing the situation for what it is


And something just doesn't feel right
And something feels off or wrong


Yeah, the anesthetic's wearing off
Yeah, the fake sense of positivity or numbness is fading


And I'm starting to feel what I've lost
And I'm starting to feel the impact of the loss of our relationship


There's stuffing in the place where my heart was
I feel emotionally empty and hollow

@@jayjayheinz8552 in the original the lyrics were
...
yeah the anesthetic's wearing off
and im starting to feel what i've lost
there's stuffing in the place where my heart was
now i'm coming down from my high
and something just doesn't feel right
yeah the anesthetic's wearing off
and i'm starting to feel what i've lost
my heart you cut it out
you sewed me up
then you put it in a box

and then it ends

so the last verse is being repeated with a little change in the lyrics and there's no chorus after it in the original
