Songs whose meanings you get many listens later

So I was in Edmonton today, and on the way back up to Westlock I was listening to my iPod.

After getting tired of the random songs it chose for me, I decided to choose one myself.

I put on “You don’t bring me flowers” by Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand. And I was singing along to it.

As I was singing along, I actually paid attention to the lyrics. That’s when I realized it’s a break-up song. Neil and Barbra’s marriage/relationship is falling apart, and they’re bemoaning that fact and reminiscing of the happy days.

With that in mind, what are some songs that, once you actually listened to the lyrics, had a completely different meaning than what you thought before?

And, go!
