"Sofa Song" as written by and Luke Pritchard....
The city freeze for
I just realized I don't like you
Me and my girl
Are going out for some air
And I will do my best
Just to get under her dress
And catch you out if I can
On the other side of my sofa

Won't you come on over
At the side of my sofa
Oh won't you come on over

The city heated up it
It got blurry cause I'd had enough
And he tried to take your soul
But didn't realized you keep it in a different hole

Won't you come on over
At the side of my sofa
Oh won't you come on over

So here he comes, a man with
A loaded gun, I don't know if he
Wants my soul or my
Cash flow, I s'pose I don't know

So here he comes, a man with a
A loaded gun I don't know if he
Wants my girl's heart or her pearls
I s'pose I don't know
I s'pose I don't know
I s'pose I don't know
I s'pose I don't know
I s'pose I don't know

    General Commenthaha yeah nuclear sky, u said it. the music to this song is just mediocre, in my oppinion; but his voice and the way he sings makes up for all of that, which was prolly the point.

    i agree with you red dead head.

    Blunt! I love this line, means a lot to me in many ways... Like the way my attitude has changed recently.

    General CommentI think this song is about when you feel you have abandoned your friends cause you're seeing a girl and trying to get your friends to accept the girl as one of their friends.
    'Won't you come on over
    At the side of my sofa
    Oh won't you come on over'
    This is Luke saying - accept her.

    'And I will do my best
    Just to get under her dress'
    This is like when guys talk about 'ahem' getting the job done when they're out on the pull.

    'The city heated up it
    It got blurry cause I'd had enough'
    I think this is about sex - heated up, started having sex. blurry - the 'end' part. But also, when the relationship starts getting on a bit further and you realise that is is.

    'But didn't realise you keep it in a different hole '
    But my mates can't do that for me as they aint girls.

    'So here he comes, a man with
    A loaded gun'
    His mate coming back with his own girl? Ignoring him. Perhaps.

    Well that's my thoughts. I'll ask Luke when I see him. lol

    General Commenti think you got it scappaflow.
    that bit with the loaded gun etc. always got me.
    or maybe a guy coming to get the girl?
    cause loaded gun can also be a reference to...
    another loaded barrel if you get my drift.

    great song though.

    General Commentwell i reckon it sounds like two guys are after the one girl and they're ready to fight for her. he's trying to get "under her dress" and bag her for himself before the other guy can get to her.

    And he tried to take your soul
    But didn't realise you keep it in a different hole
    (now it's the other guy's turn at trying to get her)

    So here he comes, a man with a
    A loaded gun
    (ready to fight)

    or

    one fella is trying to steal the other's girl and he is trying to fight him
