The meaning of the song 'Stiletto ', based on the lyrics
What is Stiletto about?
The song tells the story of a man in an unhealthy relationship with a woman who regularly hurts him emotionally. He is aware of the pain she inflicts on him, but he stays with her anyway, seeking a sense of purpose and being wanted. She manipulates him by asking for forgiveness, but this is just a ruse. Unable to see how she is using him, he is willing to endure even the physical pain she inflicts on him with her stiletto. Although he is aware of the pain she is causing him, he still has a deep desire to stay in the relationship.
This explanation is based on the lyrics of ‘Stiletto’. The meaning is of course subject to interpretation.
