    Default Hidden Meaning of 'Linger' By the Cranberries

    Now, I don't like to be 'that guy', but I have to point out the obvious hidden meaning of the song lyrics that follow:

    If you, if you could return
    Don�t let it burn, don�t let it fade
    I�m sure I�m not being rude
    But it�s just your attitude
    It�s tearing me apart
    It�s ruining everything
    And I swore, I swore I would be true
    And honey so did you
    So why were you holding her hand
    Is that the way we stand
    Were you lying all the time
    Was it just a game to you

    But I�m in so deep
    You know I�m such a fool for you
    You got me wrapped around your finger
    Do you have to let it linger
    Do you have to, do you have to
    Do you have to let it linger

    Oh, I thought the world of you
    I thought nothing could go wrong
    But I was wrong
    I was wrong
    If you, if you could get by
    Trying not to lie
    Things wouldn�t be so confused
    And I wouldn�t feel so used
    But you always really knew
    I just wanna be with you

    And I�m in so deep
    You know I�m such a fool for you
    You got me wrapped around your finger
    Do you have to let it linger
    Do you have to. do you have to
    Do you have to let it linger

    And I�m in so deep
    You know I�m such a fool for you
    You got me wrapped around your finger
    Do you have to let it linger
    Do you have to, do you have to
    Do you have to let it linger

    You know I�m such a fool for you
    You got me wrapped around your finger
    Do you have to let it linger
    Do you have to, do you have to
    Do you have to let it linger


    It seems apparent to me that this song is a direct artistic reference to flatuence. I mean, really.

    Happiness yesterday and happiness tomorrow, but never today... It can't be because it's only an illusion after all, and illusions only look real from a distance. We're over, my dreamy lost love, over, and that's the best thing of all, because it's the only thing that makes it good.

    I have no clue how you got flatulence out of this, or what weird font you are using that your apostrophes show up as wingdings.

    True enough. However there are some risks just not worth taking.

    It always amazed me that Weird Al never released a "Pull My Finger" parody of this song. It's so obvious, but I guess he just blew it on that one.

    I thought it was just a little self-irony of how this dreadful song never.. ever.. ends.

    Come on, how are you guys not getting this. I mean 'Don't let it burn, don't let it fade'? 'I'm sure I'm not being rude... it's tearing me apart, it's ruining everything?'

    I'm afraid I'm just going to have to agree with The Dude; that's your opinion. I comprehend your argument, but I don't think the song makes nearly as much sense as an extended fart joke as it does as a love song.

    Because fart jokes arn't funny...and its clearly taking the song so far out of context that the joke is even -less- funny then your average Family Guy fart joke that..ya. Its just your opinion.

    I got another meaning behind it that is of such an adult nature that I would be banned if I expressed it. Needless to say it is sexual in nature and has nothing to do with flatulence.

    Ah, I see... no, I don't agree.
    After all, if your interpretation were valid, why "don't let it fade"? Heck, open the window!
