I would climb these trees if you wouldn't let me in.
But I burned those bridges and the heat,
it all burns from within.
My mind says its your arms that wrap, around him,
and the flow of lust is all that cools if you're happy with him.

When you ask me, if i'll be alright, just to pick you up from the alleyway.
And you ask me, if i feel alright, gonna pick you up, and it's here we stay

You open the door and I follow you in.
The shock of light is all that stops our eyes from speaking.
I kiss your kips and theres a taste so clear.
Is it true that everyone knows the taste of a kiss with a tear

When you ask me, if i'll be alright, just to pick you up from the alleyway.
And you ask me, if i feel alright, gonna pick you up, and its here we stay

When you're wrong, you're wrong
when you're right, you're right
nothing means everything to us tonight.
When you're wrong, you're wrong
when you're right, you're right
nothing means everything to us tonight

I'll pick you up, pick you up, pick you up.
I'll pick you up, pick you up, pick you up.
I'll pick you up, pick you up, pick you up.
I'll pick you up, pick you up, pick you up.

When you ask me, if i'll be alright, just to pick you up from the alleyway.
And you ask me, if i feel alright, gonna pick you up, and its here we stay

When you ask me, if i'll be alright, just to pick you up from the alleyway.
And you ask me, if i feel alright, gonna pick you up, and its here we stay

When you're wrong, you're wrong
when you're right, you're right
nothing means everything to us tonight.
When you're wrong, you're wrong
when you're right, you're right
nothing means everything to us tonight

I'll pick you up, pick you up, pick you up.
I'll pick you up, pick you up, pick you up.
I'll pick you up, pick you up, pick you up.
I'll pick you up, pick you up,

    General CommentThis is song is amazing, i love the acoustic version.
    I think its about loving someone who is in another relationship "My mind says its your arms that wrap around him" and just being with them is enough to make you content "nothing means everything to us tonight."

    My Interpretationi think this song may be about boy who is having an affair with a girl in another relationship. his mind is just picturing the couple together whilst wanting to be with the girl. when it says , " the flow of lust is all that cools if you're happy with him" implying that when he pictures them together the lust is all that goes, not the love or want he feels for her. "pick you up from the alleyway" implies secrecy and having to meet up where people won't see them, like in an affair. When it says "when your wrong, your wrong, when your right, your right and nothing means everything to us tonight," makes me think that they know the affair is wrong but they don't care tonight they just want to be together.
    this could be completely wrong but it is just my interpretation :)
