Surely it's not a question of solving a problem about what the song is about, it's imagining ways in which it can be interpreted. That's always much wider. Songs can talke on all kinds of totally unintended meaning, and become richer in the process.

I like ambiguity in songs, and openess to different ways of reading them.
