He ususally brings the car around
and parks it outside our house,
And he talks to me a lonliness
and the feelings around,
So he takes out all these women
but he doesn´t feel a thing,
And he thinks there´s something missing,
there´s something wrong with him.
´Coz he reels them in and he reels them out again.

And all of these old mistakes they,
they catch us up,
And the same old patterns form again.

´Til everyday and everyday feels the same,
And everyday feels the same,
And everyday feels the same.

I usually bring the car out front
and she gathers up and finds her things,
Well he can´t see where his friends stop
and his, his lovers begin.
He says I cannot be around you because God knows it hurts,
But i cannot be without you because it´s much much worse,
So he reels me in and he reels me out again.

And all of these old mistakes they,
they catch us up,
And the same old patterns form again.

´Til everyday and everyday feels the same,
And everyday feels the same,
And everyday feels the same.

And he reels me in and he reels me out again,
And I reel her in and I reel her out again,
Reel her in and reel I her out again,
´Til everyday feels the same,
And everyday feels the same.

    General CommentA beautiful song. I think it's about a girl and a guy who were friends, and she used to watch him go off and waste his life with all these different girls. Then the line "he can't see where his friends stop and his, his lovers begin". The repetition of his sounds like a slight hesitation to say it kind of thing, and it's like then they get together. But she seems a bit reluctant and I don't think it's the perfect relationship "reels me in and he reels me out again", it's a bit of a yoyo relationship or complicated etc. Very true to its name - it is "things between people".

    I LOVE the lines:
    "He says I cannot be around you because God knows it hurts/
    But I cannot be without you because it's much much worse"

    The way she sings it is just beautiful. Rock on Aussie music!

    General Commentyeah i think it's about a guy who can't commit (reels them in and reels them out), who can't decide and make up his mind about what he wants. and it's starting to get old for her "every day feels the same"..
    i LOVE this song. so. so. much.

    General Commentthe guy holly's singing about sounds like someone i'd dislike because he doesn't know what he wants. he comes off like the type who constantly needs to be in a relationship and as a result will blur the friendship line with his women friends. the woman in this song goes along with it through and is aware of how cyclical & pointless it is... i guess that's why this song resonates with me too much for my own liking.
