We're the silence that wakes you day
We're the sound of your name outside the room
We're the sirens across the street
Where the lane, it becomes an avenue

Oh, we're right under your nose
We're the lovers that you don't know
Baby, we go, and you follow
We are the lovers, the lovers you don't know

We're the lovers that you don't know
We're the sound of your name outside the room
We're the sirens across the street
Where the lane it becomes an avenue

Oh, we're right under your nose
We're the lovers that you don't know
Baby, we go, and you follow
We are the lovers, the lovers you don't know

Oh, we're right under your nose
We're the lovers that you don't know
Baby, we go, and you follow
We are the lovers, the lovers you don't know

    General CommentIt's pretty hard to understand. Who are they talking about, I wonder?

    General CommentThe person talking is with someone who already has a partner. "we're right under your nose" but they are the lovers "you don't know". So the person being cheated on has no idea!

    General CommentI think it's more about prostitution. "The Lovers" are not a couple for me, but represent the prostitutes in the street ("outside your room" ; "the sirens accross the street").
    But overall, I'd say it's about a man who is already engaged but can't stop thinking about the temptation to have sex with a prostitute (hence the use of "your room" and "wakes you day").

    My InterpretationThe () is my intrpretation

    We're the silence that wakes you day
    (Your true self, aka YOUR LOVER, that has good intentions to you, tries to wake you up, from this self destruction that was built for you and that you help to create by becoming it)

    We're the sound of your name outside the room
    (They are your real name, your real shape, and they want to be with you forever, so they can embrace and be you, they are stronger than your hate against yourself, they are what you deny, they are you)

    We're the sirens across the street
    (They are the sirens across the streets, they want to wake you)

    Where the lane, it becomes an avenue

    Oh, we're right under your nose
    (They truly are right under your nose, ´cause its you, so it can’t disappear, but its lies there waiting for you to embrace yourself, to become yourself)

    We're the lovers that you don't know
    (But you don’t know that they love you, ´cause you are thinking it down, and you can’t see who you are, but your lovers know)

    Baby, we go, and you follow
    (You go, and they follow you, endlessly there to become you and shape the true you, because it is you)

    We are the lovers, the lovers you don't know

    We're the lovers that you don't know
    (But you don’t know that they love you, ´cause you block it out, are thinking it down, and you can’t see who you are, but your lovers know)

    We're the sound of your name outside the room
    (They are your real name, your real shape, and they want to be with you forever, so they can embrace and be you, they are stronger than your hate against yourself, they are what you deny, they are you)

    We're the sirens across the street
    (They are the sirens across the streets, they want to wake you)

    Where the lane it becomes an avenue

    Oh, we're right under your nose
    (They truly are right under your nose, ´cause its you, so it can’t disappear, but its lies there waiting for you to embrace yourself, to become yourself)

    We're the lovers that you don't know
    (But you don’t know that they love you, ´cause you are thinking it down, and you can’t see who you are, but your lovers know)

    Baby, we go, and you follow
    (You go, and they follow you, endlessly there to become you and shape the true you, because it is you)


    We are the lovers, the lovers you don't know
    (But you don’t know that they love you, ´cause you are thinking it down, and you can’t see who you are, but your lovers know)

    Oh, we're right under your nose
    We're the lovers that you don't know
    (They truly are right under your nose, ´cause its you, so it can’t disappear, but its lies there waiting for you to embrace yourself, to become yourself)

    Baby, we go, and you follow
    (You go, and they follow you, endlessly there to become you and shape the true you, because it is you)

    We are the lovers, the lovers you don't know
    (They truly are right under your nose, ´cause its you, so it can’t disappear, but its lies there waiting for you to embrace yourself, to become yourself)
