"Living Room" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
My windows look into your living room
I spend the afternoon on top of you
I wonder what it is
That I did to make you move in

Across away from me
I hope I never figure out
Who broke your heart
And if I do, if I do

I'd spend all night losing sleep
I'd spend the night and I lose my mind
Well I'd spend the night and I'd lose my mind
My windows look into your bathroom

Well I spend the evening watching
You get yourself clean
I wonder why it is
That they left this bathroom so unclean

So unlike me
I hope I never figure out
Who broke your heart
And if I do, if I do

I'd spend all night losing sleep
I'd spend the night and I lose my mind
I'd spend the night and I lose my mind
I'd spend all night losing sleep

I'd spend the night and I lose my mind
If I spend the night then I lose my mind
Well I hope I never figure out who broke your
Heart

And baby if I do
Well I hope I never figure out who broke your
Heart
Baby if I do

Well I'd spend all night losing sleep
I'd spend the night and I lose my mind
If I spend the night then I lose my mind
Spend all night losing sleep

I'd spend the night and I lose my mind
If I spend the night then I lose my mind
Spend all night losing sleep
I'd spend the night and I lose my mind
If I spend the night then I lose my mind

    General CommentI don't think this has to do with a personal, sexual relationship like a lot of people here have said. To me, it seems like she got a little too interested in her neighbors' lives from afar. Kind of like when you watch a TV show and you get too invested in the characters affairs. She gets so interested in watching their lives from across the way that she thinks about them all night.

    General CommentIts on the new cd... but you wrote that so long ago, maybe you've found the answer. I was listening to some boots of Tee and Esses concerts and heard Tegan talking about her new apartment and how she could see the "recluse" as she called her. I'm pretty sure that's the same person they're talking about in this song, but I could be wrong.

    General CommentYeah, I read somewhere that that was why Tegan wrote it. I like that it's just a little dirty-sounding: "I spend the afternoon on top of you."

    General CommentAwesome song... chorus mostly. Not big on the old country sound at roughly the 1:45 minute line.

    I'm thinking she was watching someone from her apartment? Haha.... perhaps she seen that he was hurt, and didnt want to find out who broke his heart.... or she'd 'lose her mind'

    General CommentThey said during a concert I went to that it was when she moved into an apartment and the people across the way were "a little too close for comfort"

    General Commenti love this song and i love tegan and sara. i know i'm probably wrong but when i heard this song i thought it was about a girl that is with a guy and knows hes thinking about another girl. the girl hes with doesn't want to know or think about he another girl and what they did together.
