Rosie
Well I know we're both being used
Don't make no sense
Just to carry on as we do

You know I'd love you if I knew you'd let me down
Now go remind you of yourself now
So we need to get away
Oh we want to get away
But we'll never get away, not now

When we're passing on the street
We both look the other way
Was it just a fantasy
Was it only in my mind
Said it feels so strong
I don't know

Don't let your love be colder than death
Don't let no teardrops fall from your eye (x4)

Rosie
Well I know we both seem confused
Don't make no sense
Just to carry on as we do

Don't let your love be colder than death
Don't let no teardrops fall from your eye (x4)

When I'm walking down the sidewalk
When I'm passing by the bus stop
Then I think of your dead end
When I'm passing by the bus stop
When I'm walking down the sidewalk
Then I think of your dead end

If her tears drop
Well then she
Gave herself away (x4)

    General CommentI interpret it as two people are just fucking, and both are trying to get over someone else who must have reallu hurt them. when it says "you know i'd love you is i knew you'd let me down" just shows his cynicism towards love-he loved someone and she let him down. and that person is all he is thinking about in this new relationship and he knows they are using eachother, so he just wants to get out of it.

    final note correct lyrics for the other version =)

    Rosanne
    oh i know we're both being used
    don't make no sense
    just to carry on as we do

    you know i'd love you if i knew you'd let me down (x2)
    oh we need to get away (yeah we want to get away)
    but we'll never get away now

    it's easy when it hurts so say goodbye
    we'll fall in love again just give it time
    it's easy when it hurts so say goodbye
    we'll fall in love again just give it pain

    Rosanne
    oh i know we both feel confused
    don't make no sense
    just to carry on as we do

    i know you'd love me if you knew i'd let you down (x2)
    oh we need to get away (yeah we want to get away)
    but we'll never get away now

    it's easy when it hurts so say goodbye
    we'll fall in love again just give it time
    it's easy when it hurts so say goodbye
    we'll fall in love again just give it pain

    don't let your love be colder than death
    don't let no tear drops fall from your eyes
    don't let your love be colder than death
    don't let no tear drops fall from your eyes

    it's easy when it hurts so say goodbye
    we'll fall in love again just give it time
    it's easy when it hurts so say goodbye
    we'll fall in love again just give it pain

    it's easy when it hurts..

    General Comment!!!!

    I'm practically wet with excitement! There're more lyrics up, baby!!

    Anyways, I'll give this a shot.

    I think this song is about a girl who had--as the saying goes--built walls, and was too scared to act on the love she felt for the author?

    Maybe?

    Or maybe this song just means that they banged eachother and it got awkward. c:

    Either way, I love this song. It's one of my all time favourites.
