"Living Rooms" as written by and Robert Wayne/cox Davis....
So what's your purpose for me
With your intentions in the air
So what if I wanted to ask you
If I could meet you there

Go inside
I'm coming through for you
I could not be more gone

We watched each other escape
From the commotion that we knew
The way our languages fade
In through an empty living room

Go inside
I'm coming through
Into our world that you surround
Show me now
I'm here with you
For you I could not be more gone

    General Commentwhat i think the writer means is that he needs whoever it is hes in a relationship with to show him that they actually do love each other because it seems like there is so much distance between them ("show me now im here with you, for you i could not be more gone)

    General CommentThe writer is trying to convey his confusion, in that the girl he's in love with isn't showing him that she loves him. And now he wants to know, what are your intentions?

    General CommentFor me, he's given himself to her, but she hasn't given it back to him yet, and he's wondering if the space between them is going to continue like an empty "living room"

    General CommentTo me, this song talks about a failed relationship, but in different times of said relationship:

    "So what's your purpose for me
    With your intentions in the air
    So what if I wanted to ask you
    If I could meet you there "

    the singer is confused about the intentions of the other person, looks like "would you like it if ask you out?"

    and

    "We watched each other escape
    From the commotion that we knew
    The way our languages fade
    In through an empty living room "

    after the "commotion that we knew" that reads like the actual relationship, the singer and the other person see their languages fade so much like they can't hear each other even in an empty living room.

    This is a metaphore to total lack of communications: languages fading and impossibility to hear and understand each other even in a space in which is really easy to hear anything, like an empty living room.

    The main chorus and the ending

    "Go inside
    I'm coming through
    Into our world that you surround
    Show me now
    I'm here with you
    For you I could not be more gone"

    are all about the singer giving his availability to salvage the relationship, asks the other to come "into our world that you surround", like everything is all in the other person's hand.

    But sadly, that other person, could not be more gone.

    Fantastic song by Revis, simple and powerful
