So its another night in my brain
'Cause I can't sleep
And oh, it wears on your shoulders
Just please don't ever leave
Me here, don't ever leave me
Don't you leave

Start out like a sailor
And bring back all you need
So everyone else can
Try and get some sleep

It turns out you were into yourself
It turns out you can fuck your way out
Just once more for my baby girl

It turns out you were into yourself
It turns out you can fuck your way out

And so I woke up near the sea,
The sand in my dreams
Cause now you are already falling back in love with me
Just fall back in love, yeah
Just fall back in love

Start out like a sailor
And bring back all you need
So everyone else can
Try and get some sleep

It's just the season on your back
It's just the way we know to act

It's just the season on your back
It's just the way we know to act

It turns out you were into yourself
It turns out you can fuck your way out
Just once more for my baby girl

It turns out you were into yourself
It turns out you can fuck your way out

And no one ever knew...

    General Commenti could be completely off, but these lyrics seem to portray the relationship between two best friends. he falls in love with this girl he's really close to, but she's a bit of a manipulative slut. when she has no one, she acts like she loves him. he's begging her not to leave him again, but he knows there's no use prolonging the inevitable.

    Start out like a sailor
    And bring back all you need
    ==> go out looking for your men, how ever many it takes to satisfy you & make you realize they're not right for you.

    It turns out you were into yourself
    It turns out you could find your way out
    Just once more for my baby girl
    ==> we made believe we were in love. but you were just using me as a place holder. you were lonely. i was lonely. but you were able to find a way out. i'll still be waiting for you.

    And so I woke up near the sea,
    Sailing in my dreams
    You are already falling back in love with me
    Just fall back in love, yeah
    Just fall back in love
    ==> every dream is about you returning to me. but of course, it's just a dream.

    It's just the season on your back
    It's just the way we know to act
    ==> it's funny & sad how nothing needs to be said when you find someone new. you're going through your slut phase & i know better than to pretend we're in love.

    General Commentit's kind of hard for the word to be find when the word find doesn't have a hard c/k sound at the end, though.

    General CommentI see it in a slightly different way than kissmeimeskmo.
    I think maybe two people are in a relationship that's like a rollercoaster..

    "You are already falling back in love with me
    Just fall back in love, yeah
    Just fall back in love"

    To me this sounds like the girl loves him, but will just give up on him and the relationship at any given moment, but he knows that she will always come back to him because they truly love each other.

    I dunno, I could be completely off, but this is just what I'm reading into it. Great song btw, Lydia is amazing.

    General CommentI thought the "Just fall back in love" was part of his 'sailing on dreams', that is, when he's asleep, the girl loves him again.

    General Commenti thought he said "find" as well, but i'm pretty sure it actually is "fuck" lol cuz i bought the album online from amazon & there's an (explicit) warning next to this song title.
