But she just won't believe me
She just won't believe me
I'd never be deceiving
But she just won't believe me




Overall Meaning

This song depicts a frustrating situation where the singer is trying to convince someone, most likely a romantic partner, of the truth but they just won't believe them. The repetition of "She just won't believe me" highlights the intensity of the singer's desperation to be believed. They emphasize that they would never deceive this person, but for some reason, they are not being taken at their word.


The song may reflect a universal experience of trying to communicate with someone who is not receptive or open to hearing the truth. The singer seems to be at their wit's end as they express their honesty and integrity but it doesn't seem to make a difference. The lyrics suggest that there is something standing in the way of this person's trust or ability to believe the singer.


On a broader level, the song may be a commentary on the difficulties of communication and connection in today's world. The prevalence of deception and false information in media and politics can make it hard for individuals to trust one another. The song may be a call for greater trust and authenticity in relationships and society as a whole.

This, just like Nangs and Sestri Levante, is an incredibly underrated interlude song
