Light another cigarette and
Maybe by the end of it you'll have changed
Make a mental note to self to
Dig a deeper wishing well next year

Still you are the only thing I fear

You give me chills
You give me chills

Sentimental waking up or
Sleeping in a coffee cup it seems
You’re so high the sky’s scared and
Now you’re in my nightmares and my dreams

Still you are the only thing I need

You give me chills
You give me chills
You give me chills

And then you leave me cold

Still you are the only thing I feel

You give me chills
You give me chills
You give me chills

And then you leave me

You give me chills
You give me chills
You give me chills

And then you leave me cold
And then you leave me cold

    General CommentSome of the best lyrics by Ben. Love them, especially the first line. So thought prevoking.
    I am not confident in its meaning, but I will go as far to say that it's about trying to get over someone, but you can't because they keep haunting your dreams/nightmares and it's scary. Will you ever get over them?
    I love this, "you give me chills and then you leave me cold". So powerful. Almost as though they excite you, and then they don't follow through, teasing... making it seem as though you've changed for the better, but only on the surface.
    I dunno...

    My InterpretationYes, I agree the first verse is amazing.
    "Light another cigarette and maybe by the end of it you'll have changed. Make a mental note to self to dig a deeper wishing well next year."

    It's about loving someone so much but not being able to be with them any longer. Knowing that they aren't going to change regardless of how many times you wish they would. Therefore you are forced to leave and be haunted by them and still carry that love and dream. He fears her knowing it will never work, and he could be pulled back in because she gives him chills.
