The night smells like December
and we're deep undercovers,
staking out what could be better
than all the money in the world.
And I'm watching you, and I'm waiting
for the perfect time to start participating,
and you signal me to stay
but I open my mouth anyway.

But it's over, we're goners.
It's out of our control.
And if there's one thing that I know,
it's that it's best to just let it roll.
So, let's just let it roll.

Your hazel eyes paralyze my senses.
Cut me down to size.
Defenseless, I'm defensless.
And I know it's late, but I'm waiting
for the moment that I've been anticipating,
and I signal you to go.
Where it will take us, I don't know.

But it's over, we're goners.
It's out of our control.
And if there's one thing that I know,
it's that it's best to just let it roll.
So, let's just let it roll.

Just don't waste your night before it started,
make sure I'm worth every single second, yeah.

And it's over, we're goners.
It's out of our control.
And if there's one thing that I know,
it's that it's best to let it roll.
So, let's just let it roll,
let's just let it roll.

Now it's over, we're goners.
It's out of our control.
And if there's one thing that I know,
it's that it's best to let it roll.
Let it roll, let's just let it roll.

    General CommentI think this song actually means that when you're in a realtionship, it eventually reaches a point that you can't control your feelings anymore, and it's not in your hands. So just let things happen. Excuse my cliche, but just go with the flow. And to make sure that it's all worth it in the end.

    My second view on this, is someone losing their virginity, or making love for the first time. Read it over, think it through. Yes?

    General CommentNobody commented this? This is a great song. Very depressing and well written. It seems to tell me that if your relationship went to hell one too many times, just let it go... and yet its hard.

    General CommentIt is true, you just have to let it go, even though it is so hard to do so. *sometimes the hard thing and the right thing are the same*

    General CommentYeah, I'm tending to lean towards p42790q's interpretation. I like the line about "your hazel eyes paralyse my senses". Its about how you know what you should do (or maybe you don't) and you can't do it. You're just stuck there looking at them and let it roll past...

    General CommentMy first impression of this song is that it was about losing your virginity, also. And now that I've actually read the lyrics and found that a lot of what I thought they were singing was wrong, it seems like that's the only thing it could be. Though I can see how you could get that it's about the end of a relationship. Oh well. That's merely my interpretation. =]

    General CommentIt could also be about the beginning of a relationship, that both partners are unsure in the beginning but they feel it is the right thing to do, and they can't help feeling this way for each other, so they shoukd just let it happen, or maybe one of the two is unsure, and the other one thinks they should try and just see where it leads....

    General CommentI agree about the virginity thing.
    "staking out what could be better
    than all the money in the world."
    virginity is important to most non-slutty people.
    so, it would be better than all the money in the world
    to have someone want you to take it, yeah?
