I took you up against the wall
On the rooftop we climbed through broken windows
It's how alive you make me feel
Shot a photograph to capture you and prove that this is real

I wanna wrap myself around you
So you can never get away

And I don't want to let you go (to let you go)
In this factory it's cranks and shafts that shatter glass
From the streets a massive noise
Tanks and atom bombs explode but I can only hear your voice

I wanna wrap myself around you
So you can never get away
It doesn't matter what they do to me now
Cos I will never sleep again, again, again

All those nights we stayed awake
Up on the fire escape
And our fear of heights still all the things we did
And all the things we say, oh

I wanna wrap myself around you (I wanna wrap myself around you)
So you can never get away (So you can never get away)
It doesn't matter what they do to me now
I wanna wrap myself around you
So you can never get away

    General CommentI think the meaning of this song is fairly self explanitary. When I first heard it, I didn't like it; Mat sounds like a man!! You know what I mean though? It sounds like his whole voice has changed. I've listened to it a lot, and I like it now. Hopefully they'll play this on their UK tour this month [Dec 07].

    General CommentWhat do you mean, "sounds like a man"? He is a man! Of course he sounds like one!
    But in all fairness, his voice is softer and, yes, very beautiful. The first time I heard the band ["Lips Like Morphine"], I asked my friend, "Is this a guy?" But now he does sound like a guy to me. It was just the initial reaction to my first KH exposure.
    I think Mat is sexual and lovely as hell. I would do him in a heartbeat.
    But about the song. It's sweet and romantic. I want to have a love and and an expeience like this.

    General CommentWhen I think of this song, I think of a boy and girl who are in love with each other. But they are living in a city, that is filled with fighting and violence. And the boy is not allowed to be with the girl because his family forbids it. Even so, throughout all the chaos, his love for her never vanishes. And he wants to wrap around her, so he can always protect her. Kinda reminds me of a Romeo and Juliet scenario.

    Song MeaningI have been a fan of this band for many years now... about 10 years now! This is one of my favorite songs by them.

    It seems like such an innocent song. about lovers running away from the world, even for a little bit to be alone. They are so in the moment that they can't hear anything but them selves.
