"Side Walk When She Walks" as written by and Dallas/ingelevics Green....
Dressed to kill, you look so right
I am drunk with lust tonight
Your wounds are opening wide
And they might be just my size

Now I'm afraid of open water
But I often bathe in sin
Let's be honest, you know you shouldn't bother
Cause with me, it's impossible to win

Dressed to kill, you look so right
I am drunk with lust tonight
Your wounds are opening wide
And they might be just

There was always
Warmth between us
There was always
Warmth between us

Dressed to kill, you look so right
I am drunk with lust tonight
Your wounds are opening wide
And they might be just my size
Just my size, just my size
Just my size, just my size

Just my size, just my size
Just my size, just my size
Just my size.

    General CommentI think this song is about expanding the limits of friendship with sex/love. I have this whole picture in my head of a boy and a girl just talking as usual and then suddenly suffering a change in their perspectives of each other.
    When he says "Your wounds are opening wide
    And they might be just my size", I think he's refering to all the secrets his friend has shared with him, and how he feels he could be the one that fixes all of her problems.

    General CommentI don't think it's about rape at all. I truely feel this song represents a couple that have broken up after a long relationship. He speaks of being afraid of open water, which I think means he is afraid of entering a new long-term relationship, but bathes in sin often, aka sleeps around trying to fill the void inside.
    When it gets into the chorus and he speaks of dressed to kill, I think its where they have finally met up again (for some reason I see them in a car at night) and shes dressed up to show him whats he's missing out on. Her wounds are opening wide - old flame still there and they might be just his size - meaning he probably caused them. Reconfirmed when he says there was always warmth between us.. Speaks of their history. Basically :)

    General CommentI don't think its about rape.
    To me, its about a man with so much lust for a woman, hes taking advantage of her weak state (Your wounds are opening wide).
    I think shes broken up with someone she loved, and the 'wounds' are emotional. The guy in the song is taking this as his opportunity, thinking he can fill the emotional gap this guy left;
    "Your wounds are opening wide
    And they might be just my size."
    Makes sense, right?
    Hes also trying to persuade her that his intentions are the best for her, too.
    "There was always
    Warmth between us"
    Any opinions, i'd be glad to hear 'em.

    General CommentMy guess is that this could be song about cheating or just a rebound from a relationship that just went downhill recently.. my reason for this is that he says he often bathe's in sin.. and then later on when he is singing there was always warmth between us, its like he's trying to persuade the girl to go along with it.

    "your wounds are opening wide tonight, and they just may be my size" kinda sounds like he is just recovering something and sees taht the girl is also doing the same..
