"Cute Boring Love" as written by and Tomas Nils Naeslund Simon Frank Grenehed....
She said what I was supposed to think
Thank God for freedom
Thank God for liberation
(She said) Now we are allowed to think
Now we are allowed to feel lust without cute boring love

But don't you ever just like me
Long for purity
Don't you ever
Get sick of our territories

What are you so scared of sister
What made you so afraid to feel
To chose a stone cold liberation
The one thing I hate most about me
Is the one thing you want to make your trademark
To feel lust without cute boring love

But don't you ever just like me
Long for purity
Don't you ever
Get sick of our territories
Don't you ever feel like glass
Fragile, hurting, letting it pass
Don't you think it's time to trespass

But when the fire is gone
Who are you?
What are you so scared of sister?
I'm just as scared as you

    General Commentyou all have basically said this but ill post anyway...
    the 1st few lines of the song say a lot (what shes saying to him)
    "She said what I was supposed to think
    'Thank God for freedom
    Thank God for liberation'
    (She said) 'Now we are allowed to think
    Now we are allowed to feel lust without cute boring love' "
    the girls for whatever reason is afraid of having more than something temporary.(real love) and is saying why love when we can be so liberal about it all.(casual sex w/random people or what have you)
    when she says cute boring love she tells herself thats all it is,she wants believe she has freedom and she can do whatever she wants.

    "What are you so scared of sister
    What made you so afraid to feel
    To chose a stone cold liberation
    The one thing I hate most about me
    Is the one thing you want to make your trademark
    To feel lust without cute boring love"

    hes just asking her why she feels that way.hes scared too but wants more. but when he says 'cute boring love' hes being sarcastic(or mocking her)...he knows theres more to it.

    General CommentThis is what I get from the song. Some of you may agree, some of you may not. My comments are in [brackets]

    She said what I was supposed to think
    Thank God for freedom
    Thank God for liberation
    (She said) Now we are allowed to think
    Now we are allowed to feel lust without cute boring love

    [When it says "Thank God for Freedom, Thank God for Liberation", this could refer to earlier times before Women's liberation, when sexual freedom and expression were more taboo than they are and she is thankful that she is no longer restrained by that, but conversely, that freedom now allows people to want to feel nothing but lust instead of true love, which Christian, the singer, calls "Cute Boring Love" to refer to it as how someone who is only sexually obsessed would refer to it"


    But don't you ever just like me
    Long for purity
    Don't you ever
    Get sick of our territories

    [I'm Pretty sure he is asking if he feels like him in wanting to feel true love and be pure at heart, instead of have nothing but sex. The territories may refer to uncivilized animal-like behavior of having territorial matings, as in how when one is only sex-obsessed like an animal]

    What are you so scared of sister
    What made you so afraid to feel
    To chose a stone cold liberation
    The one thing I hate most about me
    Is the one thing you want to make your trademark
    To feel lust without cute boring love

    [He is asking her what closed her heart or drove her to the "Stone Cold Liberation" which I would assume would be some sort of sexual liberation. The writer also has had this sexual liberation and he hates himself for it.]

    But don't you ever just like me
    Long for purity
    Don't you ever
    Get sick of our territories
    Don't you ever feel like glass
    Fragile, hurting, letting it pass
    Don't you think it's time to trespass

    [He urges her to "trespass" or walk into an unknown territory. The word trespass hints at a fear of continuance into a new path]

    But when the fire is gone
    Who are you?
    What are you so scared of sister?
    I'm just as scared as you

    [After this sexual liberation has finished, or after the sex dies, what is left?]

    General CommentI think its just about how you shoudnt do what is considered normal. "now we are allowed to think", "dont you think its time to trespass". and then it says "thank god for freedom, thank god for liberation" thats what i think this song is about. just how everyone should think for themsleves and not be a slave to society.

    General Commentgood point, kid. . .but the song is also about morality, about how any more the concept of love for another person is nothing but "how can i get them to bed." In this culture, the original idea of love being caring so much for someone else that you'd give up your life for them is terrifying because it's atypical. Christian, the singer, is trying to make a point with the line "Is the one thing you want to make your trademark To feel lust without cute boring love"--he's hinting at the fact that there can be something deeper than just skin. I love the chorus in this song, because he's saying that he's sick of the charades and asking if anyone else is like him

    General CommentI agree, because he says "the one thing I hate most about me is the one thing you want to make your trademark, to feel lust without cute boring love". I love the message put behind this song... so many people are like this nowadays... and I love that there are a few out there who aren't tainted... but my favorite line of this song would have to be "but when the fire is gone, who are you? what are you scared of sister? I'm just as scared as you." I like the fact that he's saying he's scared just like she is, but this just isn't right to do things like that... once again, blindside has totally rocked me, and in the best possible way. :()

    General CommentI agree with octus.
    To me this song is about this guy that is getting sick of putting up with casual sex and is longing for a more stable relationship, a more committing relationship, in other words, the "Cute boring love" hence the chorus.
    "But don't you ever just like me
    Long for purity
    Don't you ever
    Get sick of our territories"

    It also sounds to me like he is asking this "fuck friend" of his to open up to him, to love him emotionally, not just sexually. "Don't you think it's time to trespass" "What are you so scared of sister? I'm just as scared as you"

    General CommentI love this song to death. But I really like the last like, I'm just as scared as you." I think any kind of love that isn't just the lust is going to be scary and at least he's not just saying, take the leap, I'm not scared, you shouldn't be either. You know? And it's hard to open up to people sometimes. And to open up and feel the emotion behind everything, I just think it's important that for Christian to sing that message, and put it out there, for him to have that last line in there. To me, it's sort of like a reassurance. I've had a hard time opening up to a lot of people and it's way easier to have lust... but I don't think love is cute and boring. heheh, I'm going to shut up now...I'm just rambling. Sorry.
