You’re Giving Yourself Away – RATT

“Givin’ Yourself Away”

written by Desmond Child, Stephen Pearcy and Diane Warren.

You say you don’t want me
You say you don’t care
You say that your heart
Ain’t got no room for me there
You say you don’t need me
But I know that it’s just a lie
‘Cause when you call me in the night
Tellin’ me your life is better off without me
How come you’re sleepin’ all alone
Tellin’ me you don’t ever think about me…

Hey, you’re givin’ yourself away
It’s there in every move you make
You can’t hide your heartache away
Hey, it’s somethin’ you don’t have to say
It’s written in the tears on your face
I see through the part that you play
Your givin’ yourself away…
Your givin’ yourself away…
It doesn’t matter what you say
Your givin’ yourself away…
Your givin’ yourself away…

So you got all your freedom
And you got all your time
So you got the illusion that your doin’ fine
So you smile in the mirror
Through the sadness your smile can’t disguise
Why don’t you come right out and say
Baby you can’t take another day without me
You know I’m runnin’ through your blood
You need me like a drug and you can’t live without me…

Hey, you’re givin’ yourself away
It’s there in every move you make
You can’t hide your heartache away
Hey, it’s somethin’ you don’t have to say
It’s written in the tears on your face
I see through the part that you play
Your givin’ yourself away…
Your givin’ yourself away…
It doesn’t matter what you say
Your givin’ yourself away…
Your givin’ yourself away…

And when you call me in the night
Tellin’ me your life is better off without me
I know that you’re lyin’ there alone
Baby cause I know you can’t live without me

“Givin’ Yourself Away” as written by Stephen E Pearcy Desmond Child

General Comment
Interesting interpretation. I think it’s simply about a girl who dumped him because she wanted “all her freedom, and all her time” like he refers to in the second verse. But despite her efforts to display to him that she doesn’t need him, she keeps calling him, and keeps finding ways to have him in her life. She is that crazy girlfriend we all had in our teenage years who “broke up” with us, but would always keep calling afterwards to prove to us that she was “doing fine”, when in reality she was more upset about it than you are.
