"And this is why I can't see you no more"

Chan Marshall live op 31 oktober 2014 in de Gaité Lyrique in Parijs met het nummer 'Good Woman', van haar album You Are Free uit 2003.

Wat is de betekenis van dit gevoelige nummer van Chan Marshall? Is this why?:
"I think it differs from other relationship songs with the line "I will miss your heart so tender." I think Chan is talking about a very specific type of love here, one filled with tenderness and sweetness, perhaps bittersweetness, as she says that she will "love this love forever." It is something she will take with her for the rest of her life and possibly a love that changed her at the core of her person, never to be the same again. I sense no malice or needy co-dependence here in this song (compared to so many typical pop love songs). It's very pure and unadulterated in its sentiment and I suspect the lyrics came from a very deep place...made deeper by a very deep love. You're very lucky if you get to experience this kind of love even once in your lifetime, even luckier if you're able to survive its demise". bron: Songmeanings


'Good Woman'  Chan Marshall

I want to be a good woman
And I want for you to be a good man.
This is why I will be leaving
And this is why I can't see you no more.
I will miss your heart so tender
And I will love this love forever.

I don't want be a bad woman
And I can't stand to see you be a bad man.
I will miss your heart so tender
And I will love this love forever.

And this is why I am leaving
And this is why I can't see you no more.
This is why I am lying when I say
That I don't love you no more.

Cause I want (to) be a good woman
And I want for you to be a good man.
