What does the marked line in this beginning of a song lyric mean?
If this is how it's going to be for now
Then there's some little things that I would like to straighten out
'Cause I bet every trace is gone, delete the message from your phone
And just like that, it's like we never were
Seems like every time you get a call you frown
and don't you know that you don't need someone to tie you down?
Still I see it in your eyes, there are a hundred reasons why
Still I don't know where to draw the line
I found that "tie someone down" can mean "to limit one's activities". Having the desperate-sounding question "don't you know?", can we conclude that the person the author sings about is in a new relationship and "tied down" by his/her new partner? At least they seem to have broke contact with each other recently.. Maybe a little far-fetched but I could not come up with a better explanation until now.
