Do not offer me a contract
Got no use for a house by the sea
All I ask for is a warm body
To keep this winter from killing me

Everytime you close your eyes and lie still
You look just like a dead man
Dead man, dead man, I'll sing your story
Dead man come to live again

Scan the skies for signs of heaven
Heaven, what use is heaven for you?
Spend your time instead
Spend your time with us, us

    General Commenthehe everytime you close your eyess, lies lies hehe
    kinda seems like he took that line and changed it to elustria butt w.e great song anyways go own but i really dont know what this is ab out mahbe its about him asking someone he loves to not just like flirt and make his feel good but to be his and make her his coat or soemthing like metaphorically speaking and its not really working out cuzz shea always depresses and never has someone like a people please kinda person and how sometimes she wishes she was dead so he asks to stop thinking like that and spend time with friends not all alone but yeahh i suk at this lol so who else wants to give it a shot

    This song is beautiful, one of my favorites on the album. Especially because of the delivery on the lines "Scan the skies for signs of heaven/Heaven, what use is heaven for you?"
    I also love that it's about how he doesn't want a contract or fame, just a guy to keep him warm and spend time with.

    General CommentBy contract and house by the sea, I am pretty sure he is referring to a relationship. He isn't looking for a commitment, he is looking for something more simple.
