It's in the lyrics of Will Young's song-Leave Right Now. Part of the lyrics below:
I'm here so please explain
Why you're opening up a healing wound again
I'm a little more careful, perhaps it shows
But if I lose the highs at least I'm spared the lows
So what does "lose the highs" and "spared the lows" possibly mean here?
One explanation is that it means " if I'm not the best then at least I'm not the worst ". Is that true?
I cannot figure it out. Need help here. Best regards!
