"Your Arms Around Me (NFOK Version)" as written by and Jens Lekman....
I was slicing up an avocado
When you came up behind me
With your silent brand-new sneakers
Your reflection I did not see
It was the hottest day in August
And we were heading for the sea
For a second my mind started drifting

You put your arms around me
You put your arms around me
You put your arms around

Blood spraying on the kitchen sink
"What's this?" I have time to think
I see the tip of my index finger
My mind is slowly creating a link
From your mouth speaks your lovely voice
The softest words ever spoken
"What's broken can always be fixed
What's fixed will always be broken"

You put your arms around me
You put your arms around me
You put your arms around me
You put your arms around

I must have passed out on the porch
Dreamt I was carried in a kangaroo's pouch
When I wake up, I'm in the waiting room
On a dirty hospital couch
My hand is wrapped in toilet paper
And my body's wrapped in debris
You're sitting next to me reading a paper
I put your arm around me

    My InterpretationThis song can be seen as quirky and sweet, and also haunting about hallow dead end relationships..

    When I heard the song for the first time it was earlier tonight when my bf was singing along to it on a beautiful drive back home from an art class.

    "whats broken can always be fixed
    whats fixed will always be broken
    "

    I think this is too broad to be about just a dead end relationship because I as a person had a not so happy childhood and being with this wonderful guy.. No matter what I do.. I will always be broken. I will be fixed. But always be broken. I got teary eyed when I heard those lyrics and the song in every way is just it's a wonderful reflection of love and life.

    And hopefully my boyfriend will be around long enough to take me to the ER for getting hurt from his affection. :) I'll try to avoid avocados!
