It"s in the lyrics of Will Young"s song-Leave sầu Right Now. Part of the lyrics below:

I"m here so please explain Why you"re opening up a healing wound again I"m a little more careful, perhaps it shows But if I đại bại the highs at least I"m spared the lows

So what does "thua thảm the highs" and "spared the lows" possibly mean here?

One explanation is that it means " if I"m not the best then at least I"m not the worst ". Is that true?

I cannot figure it out. Need help here. Best regards!
