You can keep what you want
I want none of this
They're just bad memories
I don't want
In the sunshine
You can pack it all up
And be gone
And be gone
If it matters to you
You can sell it all up
If the price fells right
I won't judge
If you get off your knees
You'll be out on the breeze
Take a lesson from me
Don't get stuck on a dream

    General CommentI think this is the simplest, yet most powerful song about a failed relationship ever written.

    General CommentI think this song could be about many things. But I tend to agree with near fantastica. This song works better as that of the breakup of an intimate relationship. He is also saying she can sell off all their stuff and he doesn't want any of it. It would just bring him bad memories if he were to keep the stuff they both shared. If this song were not about the breakup of a marriage or something like that, some of the lines would not really make sense. But it's a beautiful song and in general it can apply to any situation where a person decides not to hold on to something that is negative... even if it means losing out on material things.

    General Commentthis song to me is about how someone can be so hung up on things then they forget how important intangibles can be.

    General Commenti love this song. so many people on forums bitch about it and how boring it is. i love it. especially the bit where thom sings: 'don't get stuck on a dream. i still have no idea what it means. maybe Thom is doing that thing where he pretends he's someone else like electroneering or we suck young blood..... who knows! i love this song

    General Commentk this songs pretty good, but obviously nowhere near there best... its about a relationship which has recently ended, and thom is fed up with it and depressed. he basically doesnt care and the line: "take a lesson from me, dont get stuck on a dream." means simply he really believed that he and his partner were meant for each other but that is obviously not the case

    General CommentI love this song. Radiohead is so mellowing. The only place I've heard it played is woxy.com, which I highly reccomend.
