The Song’s Meaning
Being with someone you love and telling them that you love them is one of the best feelings in the world. But, what if you are with someone who loves somebody else, what will you do? Will you gather all the courage you have and tell them you love them? Or will you just sit quietly and watch them be taken away from you?
“Next in Line” by Conway Twitty is about a man who watches the woman he loves suffer from her current lover. He knew her well, from her favorite song to what makes her happy. However, her heart belongs to a man who never appreciates her. It may seem martyr for the part of the narrator because even if he knew that her heart belongs to somebody else, he always tries to make her happy. There is nothing wrong with waiting for someone, but you still have to give it a try. You’ll never know if that person will also reciprocate the feeling you have for them.
Here’s a song for everyone out there who love someone but will never be theirs. “Next in Line” by the astonishing Conway Twitty.
