Flag jillo on July 02, The track first appeared as a single on October 27, , released as the lead single promoting their second studio album. Lead singer Dan Reynolds has stated that the song is about his relationship with his parents and explained that while "at times it's been strained and difficult No Replies Log in to reply.
General Comment I know Dan Reynolds specifically says the song is about his at times strained relationship with his parents, but to me this song can be applied much more broadly than that. I see the Parable of the Prodigal Son is this song pretty clearly which I suppose parallels Reynolds's own relationship with his parents to a degree.
It's humiliating, but yet his situation has become desperate enough that he has no choice. And in that difficult return, he comes to the realization that the father is always in him. The chorus is sung in a very different voice, and to me that means that it's a response from the father. The father loves the son so much that he will bet his very life on him.
He's all in. Lines up perfectly with the overall Biblical narrative. I didn't care for the song the first time I heard it but it's growing on me. Not as good as the best few songs from Night Visions but still a good song. LaBradford22 You may be on to something. Interestingly, the lyric on "Whatever it Takes" says, "Looking at my years like a martyrdom Everybody needs to be a part of 'em Never be enough, I'm the prodigal son I was born to run, I was born for this" Flag Yzermaneely on September 21, General Comment I've listened to this song like, 12 times, it says I bet my life on you, not I bet my life for you.
My Interpretation I think this song is about someone feeling as if they have treated someone terrible throughout their life, and feel bad about it now. Dan Reynolds main singer of Imagine Dragons says that he thinks that he as always been the black sheep in the family, I Bet My Life, I think, is all about that. Thanks for reading my interpretation!! My Interpretation I think this song can be applied in a different way. For me I listened to this song online at school years ago while hiding it.
At the time I really considered leaving a current "bestfriend. I had to close it off when they took my phone, and never caught the name of the song or the singers. So instead I bet on the song. I promised myself that by the time I found this song, I would have my shit together. Now I sit years later and I have found it.
Im determined to get past my problem and move forward in life. For me this song is not about me and my parents, but everyone else I wrongly let into my life. I'm tired of living for others, doing their dirty work, taking care of everything they leave behind, them using me, and disappearing and hurting me back when I need someone else with the most.
This song was about starting a new me. For the first time in my life, I stopped being a lap dog, an animal, a silent voice with no sounds. I learned to be a person, I learned to have wants and needs, I learned to do things for myself, I could hit back if I want to when i'm hurt, I can defend myself. I'm still learning who I am, but this song was my bet in life to pull up the hook permanently when I was fishing for life. I found my world for a bet on a song and won that bet.
Well I'm just a slave unto the night Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me Remember when I broke you down to tears I know I took the path that you would never want for me. I've been around the world but never in my wildest dreams Would I come running home to you I've told a million lies But now I tell a single truth There's you in everything I do. Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me Remember when I broke you down to tears I know I took the path that you would never want for me I gave you hell through all the years.
I've walked that road before I left you on your own And please believe them when they say That it's left for yesterday And the records that I've played Please forgive for all I've done So I, I bet my life, I bet my life. Please click here if you are not redirected within a few seconds.
A lot of this record was written over the last two years. Flashback two years ago, things weren't that crazy yet. To everybody it looked like we blew up overnight, but to us it was just like every day was a little bit bigger than the day before. A lot of these songs, including the single, were written during that time period. The same process we used for the first album was basically used for the second album. At the end of the day, after the show, I would go back to my hotel room.
I'm a bit of a recluse, so that's what I do every single day. I go into my hotel room and record a song, or start an idea, or record some thoughts or write down some lyrics. Is that often how you end up writing tracks -- you come up with a part of something and take it to the group? It'll usually start on my laptop in the hotel, I'll work out the basic skeletal structure of a song. Or Wayne, our guitarist, will send me guitar riffs and I'll piece that together and build the basic structure of a beat and things around it.
Then it always comes to the entire band, and we'll play it in the live setting, and that's where it really comes to life. Like many teenagers, I really hit heads with my parents at times growing up. My mom and dad are from a really conservative background, so when I told them I wanted to be a musician, that obviously wasn't a thing that they particularly wanted to hear. But my entire life I've been the black sheep in my family and been in and out of trouble.
So the song's about my relationship with my parents, but still celebrating through it all everything that we've been through. We try to see past our differences and celebrate the relationship that we have and that we still share today. Right before we were gonna release the single, I sat down with my mom and my dad and I played it for them.
It's kind of why I started music as a teenager, to say things that I couldn't necessarily say. I played ["I Bet My Life"] for my parents and I think they kind of knew, and when I hinted at it, it was a little bit of emotional moment. Before we released our first album we released four EPs, and there's really a lot of different sounds and themes that have gone on in our music.
I think the last thing we wanted to do was pigeonhole ourselves. It's a weird genre-bending thing. We brought in a gospel choir and we sampled them. They had some really cool riffs, so we cut it up and sampled it and put it to a hip-hop beat. I know I took the path that you would never want for me I know I let you down, didn't I? So many sleepless nights Where you were waiting up on me. Well I'm just a slave unto the night Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me Remember when I broke you down to tears I know I took the path that you would never want for me.
I've been around the world but never in my wildest dreams Would I come running home to you I've told a million lies But now I tell a single truth There's you in everything I do. Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me Remember when I broke you down to tears I know I took the path that you would never want for me I gave you hell through all the years.
