* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': The chorus of "Lost in Thoughts All Alone" at first seems to be about [[TheHero Corrin's]] choice and how that will affect the world. Once you get to the ''Revelation'' route, where it's revealed [[spoiler: the song was written by the dragon Anankos, who was slowly losing his sanity and knew he would one day lose control of his own actions]], the chorus takes on a new meaning [[spoiler: being just as much about Anankos' ''lack'' of the ability to choose, in addition to the entire song being a father's final message to their child.]]

* This is the writer-confirmed intent behind the song Wildfire by Music/{{MarianasTrench}}, where the first chorus says that he'd thought this love would always burn like the titular wildfire, the second saying that 'if you change your mind again, I'll burn like a wildfire', and the third (and last one with a lead-in attached) saying maybe the couple's future is so bright it 'burns like a wildfire.'

* "Message in a Bottle" by ThePolice. Chorus is "I'll send an s.o.s. to the world/I'll send an s.o.s. to the world/I hope that someone gets my/I hope that someone gets my/I hope that someone gets my/Message in a bottle, yeah/Message in a bottle, yeah." First verse suggests that it's a straightforward song about someone stranded on a desert island. Second verse hints that there's something more going on. Third verse makes it clear that the "deserted island" is a metaphor for loneliness, and the "message in a bottle" is a metaphor for attempts to reach out to others and make connections.

Compare DarkReprise. Compare and contrast with LyricSwap, where the different meaning isn't from context, but from noticeably different words. Often overlaps with AgeProgressionSong. Subtrope of DoubleMeaning.

* Music/FranzFerdinand's hit single "Take Me Out" [[Music/FranzFerdinand2004 from their debut]] could be about a guy picking up a girl at a bar... but the song is more likely about the band's namesake, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, being assassinated.
