* Music/FionaApple's "Get Him Back": The first two verses describe exes who have wronged her, with the title drop being "wait 'til I get him back", as in getting revenge. The third verse describes an ex she realizes she still has feelings for and may have dismissed unfairly: So in this case she's going "get him back" as in win him back over.

* [=SHeDAISY=]'s "A Night to Remember"'s chorus has a woman looking back on her wedding, and takes a darker tone throughout the song: first as she's getting ready for an anniversary date, then after the song reveals she knows about her husband's affair, and finally after she kills herself and her husband by sending their car falling into a canyon.

Added DiffLines:

* The repeating refrain version is used over the course of ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'': one of the titular character's signature lines is "I am not throwing away my shot!" in reference to his determination to take advantage of every opportunity that comes his way. However, when he says the line in ''The World Was Wide Enough'', it has a very different meaning: here, he's referring to the literal shot in his gun, as he wonders whether or not to shoot at Burr in their famous duel.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.'

* Music/KennyChesney: "There Goes My Life" (the first one describing how his life is over because he's going to be a young father, the second about how his daughter is his life, and the third is about how his daughter is going away to college.)

* "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.
