"I Understand What You Want But I Just Don't Agree" as written by and Luke Steele....
Running all my love in your snow
I play with caller's files when alone
They don't mean bad when they fool you on the phone
The way they walk led them to dream on their own

ohhh

Four thirty A.M. and I'm creeping out
I play the courtroom when I meet your snow
Hang on to the only one
When all the lovers turn and prey on the phone

And the eyes turn around at you
I understand what you want
And the eyes turn around at you
I understand what you need
And the eyes turn around at you
But I just don't agree

I'm incredible
You just don't see
I'm incredible
you just don't agree


Close my eyes and there will be crying
Oh
Close my eyes and there will be love, love, love

And the eyes turn around at you
I understand what you want
And the eyes turn around at you
I understand what you need
And the eyes turn around at you
But I just don't agree
Don't agree, don't agree

I'm incredible
You just don't see
I'm incredible
you just don't agree

And the eyes turn around at you
I understand what you want
And the eyes turn around at you
I understand what you need
And the eyes turn around at you
But I just don't agree, don't agree

I understand what you want
And the eyes turn around at you
I understand what you want
And the eyes turn around at you
I understand what you want
And my eyes turn around at you
But I just don't agree, don't agree

And the eyes turn around at you
And the eyes turn around at you
And the eyes turn around at you
I just don't agree

    General CommentI submitted better lyrics. The song is really interesting. The first section says "Running all my love in your snow", Snow here is defined as: to mislead or charm (someone) with elaborate and insincere words.

    I believe that Luke Steele is commenting on Hook ups vs. Relationships. To hookup, some people play games and act like they genuinely like someone even though they only want to use them.

    The second line "I play with caller's files when alone" could stand for the person who only wants a hookup as looking and talking to other people too.

    "4:30 AM and I'm creeping out
    I play the courtroom when I meet your snow"

    The person who only saw it as a hookup is trying to sneak out at 430am because they don't want to sleep over, but they get caught and confronted.

    "Hang on to the only one,
    while the lovers turn and prey on the phone"


    This is the dilemma the person hooking up faces because they have to hang on to one person or they can keep playing games.

    The eyes turn around at you
    I understand what you want
    The eyes turn around at you
    I understand what you need
    The eyes turn around at you
    The eyes turn around at you

    Imagine a telemarketing room where the operators constantly connect and disconnect from callers. The person who gets held up is often stared at. The person's friends are wondering how this person got caught up when they were only trying to hookup.

    The person looking for love is Luke Steele's part where he says "I understand what you want, I understand what you need, But I just don't agree."

    He knows his partner doesn't want a relationship because they have sexual desires and needs but he don't agree or think that's what the person really wants to needs because he is incredible and if the person looking for a hookup just got to know him they would see that too.

    When he closes his eyes he will cry because he is genuinely hurt because he loves this person who doesn't want him.

    Powerful song.

    Check out The Sleepy Jackson - Roy Demo. It is the same song, but it is a mix before they finished the lyrics and it is a little more bass-y. It is really good and I think you will have a hard time selecting a favorite between the two.
