"Cardigan Weather" as written by and Meg/frampton Frampton....
I saw you with her dear
You tried to hide away
She left through the back door
You always had your secret ways

I acted so serene
I was so drowsy then
My fault
I'm so careless
I gave you one too many pills

My, oh, my
My alibi
Restore my faith in these
Words so clear
My failure dear
Lies tucked away in me

You wanted to play this game
I'll play it too
Come here baby I will show you what this girl can do
A mattress for a coffin suits you very fine
You'll feel me with my others as you're sewn under the seams

My, oh, my
My alibi
Restore my faith in these
Words so clear
My failure dear
Lies tucked away in me

    General CommentMy, oh, my

    U guys are forgetting this part. The song is definitely about cheating, but also, there's the brilliant chorus. Theyre calling the cheater an alibi, like an excuse. And after she realizes hes an excuse, the failure of their relationship is on her because he probably wasnt worth her time anyway. Unfortunately, the failure is tucked away, meaning she probably has a weakness for crappy guys or making excuses. and the situation of catching the guy cheating has restored her faith in "these words", aka writing and making music. I think that def means it was such an experience that it inspired her to write and create.
    Just my opinion

    General CommentI haven't thought about it long, so I might end up needing to recomment another time. But basically I think this song is about "The game of love" but not so much "true love."
    I know there's more to it, but I need a little more time to think.

    General CommentThis song is about someone realising their boyfriend/girlfriend is cheating on them. I love the lines:
    "Come here baby I will show you what this girl can do
    A mattress for a coffin suits you very fine
    You'll feel me with my others as you're sewn under the seams"
    What I get from that, is that, she's getting revenge by sewing him into the mattress he/she cheated on her with, so that he/she can feel it when she's with other people.

    General CommentDefinitely about cheating.

    I do know that it's about something Meg & Dia learned about when they were doing a photoshoot... in some country (I don't remeber which one), they torture people by sewing them into mattresses or something.

    General Commenti think this song has a lot more meaning of what you guys think. im not sure what it could be about, but meg reads a lot of old english literature so maybe it has something to do with one of the books she reads.

    General CommentI saw you with her dear (Girlfriend caught boyfriend cheating)
    You tried to hide away (He tried to cover it up)
    She left through the back door (Boyfriends lover escaped through the back door)
    You always had your secret ways (He was always secretive?)

    I acted so serene
    I was so drowsy then (Maybe late at night? Or shes in shock?)
    My fault (oops)
    I'm so careless (oops again)
    I gave you one too many pills (gave him too many pills, possible killing him?)


    You wanted to play this game
    I'll play it too (oooo!)
    Come here baby I will show you what this girl can do
    A mattress for a coffin suits you very fine (She sews him into the mattress)
    You'll feel me with my others as you're sewn under the seams (He's gonna feel her and her lovers on the mattress)

    thats what i think the song is pretty much about, though i may be wrong. meg & dia are such great writers that pretty much only they can decipher what they wrote about.
    wonder if they wrote this song after a book though....?
    i would love to read it!

    My InterpretationDude cheats in their bed, she catches him, later she slips him something deadly and he dies in the bed.
