you've got this spark of imagination
triggered by boredom
yet seldom turned to flame
maybe tonight is, maybe tonight is different
maybe tonight a bon fire.

oh my god you're right
but you wouldnt go go go anywhere
you wouldnt go

maybe we'll jump in
in to the fire
maybe we'll stay here
away from our own...
you're in love with nothing
you're in love with no one
you're in love with nothing ing ing ing ing ingggggg yeahahahahah.

oh my god you're right
but you wouldnt go go go anywhere
you wouldnt go
oh my god you're right
but you wouldnt go go go anywhere
you wouldnt go

ease back, calm down a little
ease back, calm down
ease back, calm down a little
ease back, calm down
ease back, come down
ease back, come down

oh my god you're right
but you wouldnt go go go anywhere
you wouldnt go
oh my god you're right
but you wouldnt go go go anywhere
you wouldnt go

    General Commenthi,

    this song is about my friend matt.
    he is a great guy with tons of raw talent that never really wanted to push himself to pursue a career in music because of the risk.

    General Commentomg no comments??? this song is freakin' amazing!!!

    well, I used to never know what this song was about, but then I learned from my older sister that apparently it's about a girl who has something that sets her off and she wants to kill herself, so basically the singer is telling her "she's right" and to "come down" and not to jump and kill herself or something like that...

    General CommentI could definitely see how this song could be about a girl who was going to kill herself. I see it more as him mocking her at first. Like he knows she would never do it, but then as the song progresses, he realizes that she's completely serious, that's when he says "ease back, calm down a little
    ease back, calm down."

    But the whole imagination triggered by boredom and the you're in love with nothing, really make me feel like he's looking down on the whole suicide choice

    I LOVE THIS SONG!

    General Commentcaitlin376:

    hmm...yeah, I know what you mean...but I think when he says "imagination triggered by boredom" he's saying the girl has always had a tougher life than most, but she tries to pretend it's no big deal and everyone has a life like hers and things aren't as bad as they seem (that's where the imagination comes in)...I agree with you about the whole "mocking her at first thing..." I'm thinking he's mocking her when he's saying "You're in love with nothing/no one..." and when he's saying it he'd be saying it in a "yeah, right/sure, if you say so" kinda way if you catch my drift...? Wish I knew how to explain this, but it's so difficult...um...well, I'll leave it at that for now I guess...

    but still...this song is just freakin' amazing/awesome/and whatever sweet words you can think of

    General Commentnone of you are right.

    this song has nothing to do with having a hard life or killing yourself

    its more about

    somebody who just fools around with people,
    they're often interested in people, but because there is nothing better and nothing catches they're interested they fall back on the only thing they can rely on,
    a quick hook up you know

    and he's saying maybe i'll be different,
    maybe i'll catch your interest and spark a flame

    and then he's saying oh my god you're right
    as in this isn't going to work, it won't work for you
    but he's still hoping it will

    this won't go anywhere

    General CommentI will not attempt to interpret this, but I would like to step back and appreciate how great Jacob's voice is in this song.

    "bonn fireee"
    Every time I hear that line I get shivers :D (not to create a oxymoron or anything)

    My Interpretationit's definitely about a girl who he feels he could very easily lose, whether it be by a suicide or not being good enough or her not looking for anything serious. in the beginning he mentions the spark of imagination, and in the second verse he says to jump into the fire, meaning to just live in their own imaginations. this is where he says she's not going anywhere.
