I’m not gonna lie,
you’re dangerous
This heart I’ve got
is as hard as rock
and still it sleeps
to the words you’re saying now, again.
I’m not gonna lie,
you look dangerous.
But I like the way you look
I just hate the way it hurts.

I know that there’s a reason
why you are here beside me.
I know that there’s a compromise
from what I want and me.
I know that I’m a failure
‘cause I have been for so many years.
Baby this is where I get it right.

I’m not gonna lie,
you’re scandalous.
It’s the way you move,
it’s the way we touch,
face to face I see the words you’re mouthing now, again.
I’m not gonna lie
you look scandalous.
But I like the way you look
I just hate the way it hurts.

I know that there’s a reason
why you are here beside me.
I know that there’s a compromise
from what I want and me.
I know that I’m a failure
‘cause I have been for so many years.
Baby this is where I get it right.

So come to me
and give me that.
And we’ll go on and on and on again,
you’re on and on and on again.
You look so serious.
But I like the way you look
I just hate the way it hurts.

I know that there’s a reason
why you are here beside me.
I know that there’s a compromise
from what I want and me.
I know that I’m a failure
‘cause I have been for so many years.
Baby this is where I get it right.

    General CommentIs he saying "a compromise between what I want and need"? Instead of 'me'? That makes more sense, but I'm not going to decide on that yet... But it sounds like 'need'.

    To me, this song is about him and a girl and him telling her that she's gorgeous, she's something he wants, but she may be bad for him... 'but I like the way you look, I just hate the way it hurts'...

    Dunno. This song really means something to me because it reminds me of someone, but it's hard to put into words. A good song, none-the-less.

    My InterpretationSketchy has a close interpretation. In further detail my way of seeing this song is.

    In the eyes of the man saying, he is possibly looking at another woman as a Goddess. Almost as if she is too good for him. Obviously he doesn't believe that she is around him in his life even though she is, and wishes he could do more for her. The lyrics also seem to say that she is in his life but not the way he wants, and that it hurts so bad that she is not.

    Remember everyone songs can mean anything to you. Everyone feels differently about how a song makes them feel.
