  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Music Lyrics Explained number 26.

  • Today, the song is "Suspicious Minds" and probably the most famous version is

  • actually by Elvis Presley. All right. But let's take a look look at the note here.

  • This classic song was written by Mark James. Yeah. He tried to make a hit out of

  • it and it never really went anywhere. And of course

  • Elvis picked it up and Elvis made a big hit out of it. Then a lot of other people

  • a lot of other famous singers also made hits out of it later too.

  • All right. Let's continue. Elvis Presley probably had the most famous cover

  • version and actually it was his last number one hit for Elvis Presley too. Of

  • course he had many number one hits he had other hits after that but it was the

  • last time that he had a number one hit. It was actually the cover version of this

  • song. Let's continue. The Fine Young Cannibals had a big hit with this cover

  • version in the 1980s too. I really liked that version. I had seen that version as well.

  • It was kind of cool. All right. But anyway to get into it this song I did check out a

  • little bit of the backstory. You know, because Mark James. He's the one who actually

  • wrote it. And you know, when when you see the suspicious minds and you read these

  • lyrics and you start to wonder like did his ... I guess it's his wife did his

  • wife really have a good reason to be suspicious of him or was she just you

  • know like really just naturally a suspicious person. And what you find out

  • is that supposedly Mark James he still had some feelings for his first

  • love, who who also had married another guy and you know, now he married her but

  • I guess the wife could sense it you know just like a wife's intuition she could

  • feel that. She could sense it. And you know, that's probably where these

  • feelings of jealousy and mistrust probably came from. So that's really kind

  • of the background of you know for Mark James the guy who really wrote this song.

  • Even though , Elvis made a really really good version

  • of it as well. And so did the Fine Young Cannibals. All right but anyway. Let's

  • get into it Let's let's cover it. Let's just like

  • usual we'll cover the lyrics and I'll try to explain any lyrics that need to

  • be to be explained. Let's start. We're caught in a trap. I

  • can't I can't walk out. Because I love you too much baby.

  • All right. We're caught in a trap. All right. Here he does mean kind of a trap. Almost

  • like there is a little bit of a love trap. You know between the feelings he has for his

  • old love and his wife. I don't know if I would exactly call it a love triangle.

  • Not really. Because he is , he is married to her (the wife ) and she (the old girlfriend ) is married as well. But it's

  • still of his, his present wife is having trouble getting past this. And he's still

  • probably having trouble you know, reassuring her about ...you know, that he

  • really loves her and he wants to stay with her. So that's, that's what he means.

  • That's the kind of trap he's talking about. We're caught in a trap and I can't

  • walk out. All right. I can't walk out. You know to leave abruptly. Often in protest

  • or anger. But of course he's talking about you know walking out on the

  • marriage leaving the marriage. Because I love you too much baby.

  • So he's letting his present wife know that he really does love her. He doesn't

  • want to leave. He wants to stay with her you know, even though you know, she's

  • probably driving him crazy with, with all of the suspicion and possibly jealousy.

  • All right. So let's continue. Why can't you see , what you're doing to me, when you

  • don't believe a word I say ? So again you can kind of understand this. If anybody's

  • ever been in a relationship with one person really doesn't trust the other

  • person. Is suspicious, very suspicious. It would be very, very bad for a

  • relationship. It would make things very, very uncomfortable and could be very

  • dangerous for the relationship. So but he says you know why can't you see ? Remember

  • we often use the word 'see' to mean understand. Why can't you understand what

  • you're doing to me ? You know like even though, you are suspicious, you know,

  • you're driving him crazy and you're making... He can't bear this... all, all his

  • feelings that's coming off her as well. When you don't believe a word I said.

  • Yeah, you got to have trust in a relationship or eventually you'll both

  • go crazy. All right. So now we , now we come to the chorus. We can't go on

  • together with suspicious minds and we can build our dreams on suspicious minds.

  • All right. We can't go on, can't go on of course means we can't continue.

  • You know, it's endangering the relationship. with suspicious minds. Remember if you are

  • suspicious... believing somebody's done something wrong. You know maybe she just

  • really doesn't trust him. Maybe she can you know, sense that you know, he still

  • had feelings for her. And we can't build, build our dreams you know. Because he

  • wants to stay with her. He wants to be with her on suspicious minds. So he's kind

  • of saying this to her. So if an old friend I know.. stops by to say hello,

  • would I still see suspicion in your eyes ? All right. This is a good question. And I don't

  • know is this, is this, is this old girlfriend still dropping by. And

  • then I could really understand why the wife might be more suspicious actually.

  • If that's who he is talking about. So if an old friend I know. Stops by to say hello,

  • would I still see suspicion in your eyes ? Okay. All right. Well you know, I hope he's

  • you know, honest here. Here we go again. Asking where I've been. You can't see the tears

  • are real. I'm crying you know, something like that.

  • And then there's backup singers who are also singing yes, I'm crying. " Yeah so

  • here we go again. So they probably argued about this a lot of times. It's probably

  • come up a lot of times. You know , you with couples sometimes ...you could see... you know,

  • they remind you... they remind you of something like this. Asking where I've

  • been. All right. So you know, she's probably really suspicious. You know

  • recently in another video I did the... I did the noun phrase , the the third degree.

  • Like somebody gives you the third degree. That's, that's what it sounds like. She's

  • probably doing to him. Like well where, where have you been ? Where did you go ? Did

  • you stop off ? Why'd it take you so long to get back ? How long did it take you to get

  • back ? You know, giving him a lot of intimidating questions.

  • You can't see the tears are real. So you know, it's eating him out as well. And

  • then of course it again it continues with the regular chorus. which we covered

  • already. You know, we can't go on together. All right. So we can probably skip that

  • part. And then, it says oh and then it really slows down. It says, oh let out love

  • survive. I'll dry the tears from your eyes. let's don't let a good thing die.

  • When honey you know, I never lied to you. Yeah. Okay. So let our love survive. Don't let it

  • continue. Don't let it fall apart. Let's not ruin this. I'll dry the tears from

  • your eyes. Well he's trying to reassure her. That you know, you cried. Oh don't

  • worry. I'm not you know, I'm not going to do anything. I'm not going to go there . Let's

  • don't let a good thing die. So you know, he realizes that he's got a good thing

  • with the wife that he's married to. At the moment, when honey, you know, another

  • you know term of endearment, you know, Often couples call each other you know

  • honey, sweetheart, etc. When honey you know, I've never lied to

  • you. Yeah. Yeah. So I hope he's truthful. But he says it. He

  • says he never lied to her. So he is saying the right things. Anyway, of course. And

  • then of course it basically... it repeats the chorus. And, and I think the bridge

  • several times so. So why can you know, it goes back into it again. You know, why can't

  • you see what you're doing to me ? And we can't go on together.. he continues that both

  • times as well. Anyway, I hope you got it. It's a famous classic song. You know,

  • sometimes you hear it come out and movies and everything else as well.

  • Anyway, I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you got it. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
