"Do You Wanna Know?" as written by Mark Pennells and Anthony Zarc Porter....
So hello where are we today
Still fighting, still running in place
Now the outline of this lake
Seems to be pointing me away
Honestly I've never lied more to myself
All over the floor, right through my teeth I've showed you
Just how weak my knees can get so

Don't let go
My spine is slipping like a fault line
If I go I'll bury us all
Don't close my door
Don't leave me out with these mosquitoes
Trying to drink up all my wine

[Chorus]
Do you wanna know
What my love is?
Oh, do you wanna hear how my song goes?
Do you wanna know
What my love is?
Don't say no
Don't say no

And now it's up to me
To wait, I need you to reciprocate
My heart is ticking like a box
Sent to me by anonymous
And now I'm scared to open it
I'm always blowing up to bits
I'm always running out of lines
Running out of time

So don't let go
My spine is slipping like a fault line
If I go I'll bury us all
Don't close my door
Don't leave me out with these mosquitoes
Trying to drink up all my wine

[Chorus]

Don't let me go
I'll fall apart
Don't say you won't follow my heart
I've kept this deep inside for far too long (it can't be wrong!)
Only one life to give
I cross my heart and hope to live
With you my darling here forever more

[Chorus]

Don't say no

[Chorus]

    General CommentIt's actually:

    "My spine is slipping like a fault line
    If I go I'll bury us all"

    But other wise, great song from an equally great album.

    General Commentdan's songs are getting better all the time.. this song is my fav one on the new album at the moment... i think it's about finding the person you want to spend your life with and hoping they feel the same way.. it's also about reflecting on life and wanting to give all you have to your lover to make them as happy as you can becoz you feel so lucky to be with them...

    General CommentDan is generally weaker lyrically speaking than Matt but he has taken huge strides on this album.

    General CommentThis song is about the West Memphis 3
    If you think about it, it's pretty obvious

    "So hello where are we today
    Still fighting still running in place
    And now the outline of this lake
    Seems to be pointing me away
    Honestly i've never lied more
    To myself all over the floor
    I threw my teeth i've shown you
    Just how weak my knees can get"

    It tells how their still on trial for a crime that they didn't do
    and how nobody will belive what they say

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song off the album, I had to giggle alittle bit to how high Dan gets his voice.
    I'm lame, I know.
