Whatever happened
To saying this was the last time
At least for a while
And he looks so worried
But you hate how he looks at life
With such a closed mind

Too much, too fast
We should be heading back
No questions asked
It’s always sailing past

Have you learned your lesson
Have you learnt to always think things through
Cause you keep on changing
What you think is right
What is true but only when it suits you

Too much, too fast
We should be heading back
No questions asked
It’s always sailing past

His height won’t last
His height won’t last

Too much, too fast
We should be heading back
No questions asked
It’s always sailing past

Too much, too fast
We should be heading back
No questions asked
It’s always sailing past

    General CommentI feel this song is about a girl and a guy (as usual, kind of idiosyncratic for BBC). She says that she loves the narrator behind her boyfriend's back, but she doesn't care because she hates the way he looks at life (Stanza 1), and that's how she justifies it.
    The narrator, contrary to what most people would do, tells her that it's wrong (see the chorus). It seems that the girl takes the guy away from a party or a get together because he says that they should head back, as if to say they should head back to where her boyfriend is.
    The second stanza shows that the narrator holds a little bit of contempt for what she just did, as if the boyfriend saw or something along those lines. He also reveals that she changes her moral values on a whim to justify whatever she does, to make her feel less guilty, which the narrator doesn't like.

    I like this song. Especially the chorus.
