"Himerus And Eros" as written by and Nicholas Edward/beck Thomas....
You're captivating while evading
All the questions I have for you like,
"What exactly makes you tick?"
When the guilt sets in tell me
What exactly are we going to do?

Your tongue is wet with a top secret passion
I hope I am the cause of it
I'll navigate this unsturdy vessel filled with a soft sea pillows and blankets

And I fight the urge to explore
The vastness of your curse I adore
You know I, I hate you
No, I hate you more
You know I, I love you
No, I love you more

Yes, it's true
You've brainwashed me and now I'm more confused
I still somehow hope I end up with you
Yes, it's true
I romanticize every single thing I do
Especially when it comes to you

I've sunken in the quicksands of love
And I don't want you to rescue me
Screw what my supposed friends think
It's obvious they reek of jealousy
It's obvious they reek of jealousy

And I fight the urge to explore
The vastness of your curse I adore
You know I, I hate you
No, I hate you more
You know I, I love you
No, I love you more

Yes, it's true
You've brainwashed me and now I'm more confused
I still somehow hope I end up with you
Yes, it's true
I romanticize every single thing I do
Especially when it comes to you

I hope to God I mean a little more then the sounds that escape your tired 4 A.M. lips
And oh-how I wish I meant a little more then a symphony of heavy breathing and the friction of hips

Yes, it's true
You've brainwashed me and now I'm more confused
I still somehow hope I end up with you
Yes, it's true
I romanticize every single thing I do
Especially when it comes to you

    General CommentWell, I interpret this different than a romantic song or a song completely about sex.
    CAPS = what I think.

    You’re captivating while evading
    all the questions I have for you like,
    "what exactly makes you tick?"
    HE'S MYSTIFIED BY HER, SHE'S INTRIGUING (sp..) YET SHE'S AN ILLUSION, OR SHE DOESN'T SHOW MUCH OF HER FEELINGS SO HE DOESN'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HER THOUGH HE WANTS TO.

    When the guilt sets in tell me
    what exactly are we going to do?
    --THEY'RE MESSING AROUND &KNOW THEY SHOULDN'T BE FOR SOME REASON.

    Your tongue is wet with a top secret passion
    --AGAIN.."TOP SECRET" THEY SHOULDN'T BE DOING WHATEVER.

    I hope I am the cause of it
    I'll navigate this unsturdy vessel filled with a soft sea pillows and blankets
    --HE WANTS HER TO WANT HIM, HE'S UNSURE OF WHAT THEY'RE DOING BECAUSE IT'S "WRONG", BUT THEY'RE STILL GOING TO BED &HOPING THAT FIXES IT POSSIBLY?


    The part about fighting the urge to explore her body, which he thinks is wonderful obviously, and him saying "i hate you" "no i love you more" I think it may be them talking, or him wrestling with his thoughts &doesn't know if he's in love with her or he hates her for what is happening.


    You've brainwashed me and now I'm more confused
    --SHE'S MADE HIM WANT HER EVEN THOUGH SHE'S PROBABLY PLAYING GAMES &HE'S AGAIN, NOT SURE IF IT'S RIGHT


    I still somehow hope I end up with you
    I romanticize every single thing I do
    especially when it comes to you
    --HE STILL WANTS HER, THOUGH IT'S A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP. HE IMAGINES THINGS, DREAMS ABOUT HER OFTEN..HYPES IT UP.

    The bit of how he hopes he means more to her than sex, well I believe it's obvious.

    SO IF YOU DIDN'T WANT TO READ THIS LONGGGG COMMENT, THEN SKIP TO HEREEE ::

    To sum it up I think it's about him &a girl and the girl is fun and a mystery to him, he daydreams and fantasizes things about her and the relationship &wants to have sex with her, but in the end isn't sure if it's right (for a reason i don't know) or not..maybe the reason is because he doesn't know if she loves him or not.

    General CommentWell Eros is the Greek God of love, sexual desire, and fertility; also known as Cupid by other beliefs. Himerus, the god of lust, is an accompiament to Eros.

    I believe that "Himerus and Eros" stand sfor "Lust and Love." The man singing is in lust with a girl (possibly guy because Himerus and Eros are both men) and he loves her/him as well. He is enchanted by her/him and wants her/him in every way, but he is afraid s/he only has lust for him. He wants to hate her/him, to be sure his heart won't be broken if it isn't real, but he cannot help but love them.

    General CommentDespite the fact that I am a girl, I relate to this song to an incredible degree. You keep TRYING to find out more about the other person, you keep TRYING to ask questions, only to get avoided. And no matter how hard you try to not like someone, they do seem to brainwash you, and you're stuck in this perpetual cycle of confusion, what with liking them so much and not wanting to ruin the little relationship and closeness you have, to being so frustrated with them for not wanting the same things you do. you end up romanticizing everything, in hopes that maybe you can construe their actions into more than lust, but in the end, you know it's nothing more than a hookup to them. a convenience.
