"The Fever" as written by and Danny/peiken Tate....
Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
and I don’t believe you

When the summer is gone
It won’t be long
‘til someone’s got the fever creeping inside

When the city is moving and your eyes they are a moving and you just can't fight that feeling but you said it's the last time.

Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
And I don’t believe you
Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
And I don’t believe you
Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
and lies are lies

I can’t fight it, no I just can’t fight it
Can’t fight it, no I just can’t fight it now
When the summer is gone
It won’t be long until someone’s
Got the fever creeping inside

When the city is moving and your eyes
They are a moving and you just can’t stop
You just can’t fight it, ya

This is the last time
Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
And I don’t believe you
Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
And I don’t believe you
lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
lies are lies

Can’t fight it, no I just can’t fight it
Can’t fight it, no I just can’t
Well we all agree that we don’t believe
This is the last time
This is the last time

Well they promised you
Now you see the truth
This is the last time
This is the last time
This is the last time
This is the last time
And everyone’s got the fever
(lies are lies, lies are lies, lies are lies)
Lies are lies
(lies are lies, lies are lies)
Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes

Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
And I don’t believe you
Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
And I don’t believe you
Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes
lies are lies

Can’t fight it, no I just can’t fight it
Can’t fight it, no I just can’t
Well we all agree that we don’t believe
This is the last time
This is the last time
Well they promised you
Now you see the truth
This is the last time (times five)

When the summer is gone
It won’t be long until someone’s
Got the fever

    General CommentWhen the city is moving in your eyes
    and you’re a moving and you just can’t fight
    That feeling, you said its the last time

    Those are wrong. It's
    When the city is moving and your eyes they are a-moving and you just can't fight that feeling but you said it's the last time.

    General Commentthis song is a total love, Will's voice is totally different from Remember Maine, but love him either ways.

    who agree's that most of TAI songs are written about people who are changed by fame & fortune and how much they won't become like that?

    General Commenti think this song is about a black and white couple and apparently they think it's wrong.

    "you just can't fight that feeling but you said it's the last time."- they can't get rid of each other.

    "Got the fever creeping inside"- i think this means jungle fever.

    "This is the last time"- this line is repeated many times as though they're trying to convince themselves they're going to stop.

    "Can’t fight it, no I just can’t fight it"- they cant fight of they're feelings for each other.

    "Lies are lies in everybody’s eyes and I don’t believe you"- maybe they're saying something to each other like 'this is the last time' and he knows its a lie.

    "Well we all agree that we don’t believe this is the last time"- they realize that they can't give each other up so they just agree and accept it.

    General CommentI really don't see the interracial couple thing, the lines you mentioned could be applied to anything and whats a black girl go to do with the jugnle? thats a bit close minded.

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship that's ended or is on the rocks. She's lying to him and he is calling her bluff. The part when he says "we don't believe this is the last time" may have something to do with there is some future for them. Maybe a friendship of some kind but it's not the last time they'll cross paths
