The Nurse
The White Stripes Lyrics


The nurse should not be the one who puts salt in your wounds
But it´s always with trust that the poison is fed with a spoon
When you´re helpless with no one to turn to alone in your room
You would swear that the one who would care for you never would leave
She promised and said, "you will always be safe here with me"
But promises open the door to be broken to me

No I´m never, no I´m never, no I´m never gonna let you down now
No I´m never, no I´m never, no I´m never gonna let you down
No I´m never, no I´m never, no I´m never gonna let you down now
No I´m never, no I´m never, no I´m never gonna let you down

The maid that you've hired could never conspire to kill
She´s to mother, not quietly smother you when you´re most ill
The one that you´re trusting suspiciously dusting the sill

No I´m never, no I´m never, no I´m never gonna let you down now
No I´m never, no I´m never, no I´m never gonna let you down
No I´m never, no I´m never, no I´m never gonna let you down now
No I´m never, no I´m never, no I´m never gonna let you down

Robyn


on Candy Cane Children

The meaning of this song is basically saying the older you get, the less fun Christmas becomes usually do to adulthood. The lines "don't you know your name?...", probably refers to the adults telling kids to grow up as if they're saying "Do you know how old you are? You're getting too old for this stuff." Probably why he put the lines "nobody knows how to talk to children". Also, he puts the lines "think again" after a thought of one of the kids thinking of wishing to participate in Christmas activities. As if they're thinking "Yeah I probably AM too old for this.." "364 more tears girl" the sadness of getting older. Not participating feels like a missed opportunity and causes even more sadness..
