The Canadian band, Nickelback, made hit songs during 2000s with music themes encompassing love, heartbreak, life and even spirituality. Here are are the memorable lines in Nickelback’s songs.
How You Remind Me
” This time I’m mistaken
For handing you a heart worth breaking”
There’s a regret for the guy giving his heart for the girl, who eventually broke his heart. The song became the first and only chart-topper from the band.
“How the hell did we wind up like this?
Why weren’t we able, to see the signs that we missed”
The relationship is breaking and the guy is wondering how they haven’t foreseen that they were able to break.
“Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for”
It’s like reminiscing of the past, either the good old days and the once you loved back then. This song is a big hit for the guys.
” And all I scream for you
Come please I’m callin'”
When you are failing and you want someone to help you, you scream to get saved. It’s not literal though.
“I keep dreaming you’ll be with me
and you’ll never go”
It seems the guy and girl already separated as they are far away from each other and the guy is still dreaming they will be together.
“I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair and change my name”
Rockstars were stereotyped for lavish lifestyle and the guy will trade anything for the sake of such lifestyle.
Gotta Be Somebody
“So I’ll be holding my breath, could this be the end?
Is it that moment when, I find the one that I’ll spend forever with”
It seems the guy has found the one he wants to marry and he’s still thinking if it really is. Could it be Avril? Hhmmm…
When We Stand Together
“How can we fall asleep at night
When something’s clearly wrong”
With all the chaos and havoc going on in this world, it is really hard to sleep at night at ease.
