"You're a Woman, I'm a Machine" as written by Jesse Keeler and Sebastien Grainger....
Take what you want my head is full, take what you need, my price is good.
You want it all, just like should. Your thoughts are pure, just like they should.
Be what you want, you want it all, I've seen it once, I've seen it all.

Now that it's over this weight is off my shoulder.
Now that it's over this weight is off my shoulder.
Now that it's over I love you more and more.
Now that it's over I love you more and more.

Oh, I know that you, would take my hand, if that was true, give you a chance.
You want it all, just like you should.
My thoughts are pure, my thoughts are good.
Be what you want, you have it all, I've seen it once,we've seen it all.

Now that it's over this weight is off my shoulder.
Now that it's over I love you more and more.

    General CommentMaybe about prostitution?

    " Take what you want
    My head is full
    Take what you need
    My price is good
    You want it all
    I've seen it once
    I've seen it all "

    This is a lover whose been around the block beofre and doesn't give a shit anymore.

    "Now that its over this weight is off my shoulder
    Now that its over I love you more and more "

    Maybe this is a 'customer' who he's falle nin love with? He's glad he doesn't have to try to impress her anymore and can finally allow himself to actually love another.

    "I know that you
    Would take my hand
    If I were to
    Give you the chance "

    He knows she wants marrige, but that doesn't come easy for those in his line of work.

    "You want it all
    Just like you should
    Our thoughts are pure
    Our thoughts are good
    Be what you want
    You'll have it all "

    This girl wants the full package: marriage, kids... And he understands that that's exactly how she should feel, and he's thinking about retiring and giving her what she wants.


    This song is almost definitely just about sex, but the prostitute perspective gives it a storyline that it would otherwise lack.

    General CommentThis would also explain the title, "You're a Woman, I'm a Machine" ="You Need Love, All I Have To Give Is My Body, My Sex"

    General CommentPersonally I hear:

    "Take what you want
    My head is full
    Take what you need
    My price is good
    You want t all
    Just like you should
    My thoughts are pure
    Just like they should
    Do what you want
    You want it all
    I've seen it once
    I've seen it all

    Now that it's over just wipe this off my shoulder
    now that it's over just wipe this off my shoulder
    Now that it's over I love you more and more
    Now that it's over I love you more and more

    I know that you
    Would take my hand
    If I were to
    Give you the chance
    You want it all
    Just like you should
    My thoughts are pure
    My thoughts are good
    Be what you want
    You have it all
    We've seen it once
    We've seen it all

    Now that it's over just wipe this off my shoulder
    Now that it's over I love you more and more"

    General CommentThis song is about Jesse and Seb's dedication creating music; specifically YAWIAM over all else. They put off their relationships in favor of working obsessively on the album, like "machines".

    "Now that it's over, this weight is off my shoulder.
    Now that it's over, I love you more and more."

    In other words: "Now that the album is finished, we have time again..."

    General CommentFuck you break-up song, but the "you" in this case isn't his ex-partner, but rather life itself. The song recognizes how fundamentally broken it is to attempt to live a life as a figurative machine, but holds no hope that the narrator can do any differently (hence the push-pull between the addresser and the addressee).

    General CommentI felt like this song is about what it is sometimes like for a man, in the relationship with the woman.

    I sometimes feel as if, as a man, you really try anything you can to get a girl to like you and to, maybe have sex with her. Hence, the 'take what you want, my head is full'. and the you want it all, just like you should'. I means that you just want her to say what she wants, because... then you have more chance to get more into her comfort zone.

    Also, the, now that it's over, just wipe it off my shoulders', I feel like that's about them finally having sex. And the, 'I love you more and more', it means that now do finally did it, he feels as if the mission is accomplished, and now he can start to love her.

    The title also refers to this 'you're a woman, i'm a machine', it refers to that man sometimes need to act like 'machines', and show no emotion at all and have a big shield around their own problems, if they want to have a chance to get it on with a woman.

    Hmmmm,, What do you guys think ?
