With your hook and line,
I still blow away
With your hook and line,
I still blow away
With your hook and line,
I'm still blown away
With your hook and line,
I still blow away

Try your best in your heavy shade
To keep it quiet, keep it cool
Lipstick letters and souvenirs
Make a mockery of your fears

With your hook and line,
I still blow away

Try your best to make it matter
Tattoo it in the clouds above you
Nail it down with jealous bones
'Til it goes like a feather off on its own

With your hook and line,
I still blow away

    My InterpretationHuh, I always thought it was about a relationship that one partner is more serious about than the other. No matter what they do, they can't get the narrator to settle down (and stop cheating?).

    General CommentI think it might be about a long distance relationship. One person is trying to "keep it (the other person's cheating) quiet", a secret. The narrator cheats obviously, and sends "letters and souvenirs" that make it obvious to anyone. I think the narrator might be trying to get the other person to break up with her, but they still "try (their) best to make it matter" and convince her not to cheat on them. I'm really just agreeing with thatfangirl here, only with the long distance part.

    General CommentI think it is about a guy that is a typical superficial sort that thinks he has to spend money on a woman- buy her things to make her happy (the "hook and line" spending on things); the reality is that she "blows away" because buying her love doesn't bring the fullfilment of deeper (heavier) spiritual connection that would anchor their love.
