Like a thunderstorm that pulls you deep into the night
She speaks to me in numbers and is gone when I open my eyes (She wants more)
You know I’ll just forget it if you give me a chance (One more time.)
I can’t desire something if it just isn’t there
It just isn’t there, it just isn’t there, it just isn’t there, it just isn’t there.

She’s in my blood and like a fire inside me
It consumes the air then leads me blindly
She has my hopes and dreams
And she‘s the one I see who screams go on, go on.
She doesn’t know who I am
I really want to tell her that this can’t go on tonight.
She’s in my blood, in like a broken glass
You take one last breath and she’ll leave you bruised tonight.

She was calling but I kept waiting by the phone.
She looked at me with her left eye closed and said
"You don’t know if you don’t know, then they wont know." (She wants more.)
You know I’ll just forget it if you give me a chance. (One more time.)
You can’t decide on something if it just isn’t there.

She’s in my blood, and like a fire inside me.
Consumes the air then leads me, leads me, l-l-l-l-leads..Me.
She’s in my blood, and like a fire inside me.
Consumes the air then leads me blindly.
She has my hopes and dreams
And she’s the one I see who screams "go on, go on."
She doesn’t know who I am
I really wanna tell her that this can’t go on tonight.
She’s in my blood, in like a broken glass
You take one last breath and she’ll leave you bruised tonight.

She is temptation, and temptation has it's fangs in me.
I never thought that I could live a lie so painfully.
Well she was blind and she’s taking her time
She goes on and on she takes a hold and never lets you go.

She’s in my blood, and like a fire inside me.
Consumes the air then leads me blindly
She has my hopes and dreams
And she’s the one I see who screams "go on, go on."
She doesn’t know who I am. (and like a fire inside me. Consumes the air then leads me blindly) She doesn’t know who I am. (she has my hopes and dreams, and she’s the one I see who screams "go on, go on.")
Go on. On. On.

She doesn’t know who I am
I really wanna tell her that this can’t go on tonight.
She’s in my blood, and like a broken glass
You’ll take one last breath and she’ll leave you bruised tonight.

    My InterpretationFirst, an awesome song. Superb lyrics too! It's pretty much about resisting temptation to go too far with a girl. He describes how temptation gets ahold of him in the chorus, and how "temptation" doesn't know who he is. That is, he is someone who won't dive into physical intimacy. What I would call the bridge explains how "she" is temptation, and what it's done to him. Powerful song, an admirable message. Who would have though resisting temptation could sound so cool ;-)

    General CommentWow. Tmac's explanation...
    I'd never really though about it, but looking at it now, it totally makes sense.
    Love this song.

    General CommentRobert Cohn is a referense to Hemmingway's The Sun Also Rises. I'm not sure what they mean by "reinventing" though, what do you guys think?

    In "The Sun Also Rises" robert cohn has an affair with the main character Jake Barnes' girl Brett Ashley
    In the book Cohn had an inferior complex and he always tried to be civil despite being the target of hurtful statements
    Plus that could tie in with the temptation statement

    General CommentI think what Tmac said is probably right, but in the music video, he kisses the girl at the end. That doesn't make much sense to me because he's supposed to resist the temptation.

    My InterpretationYeah he's saying that he WANTS to "tell her that this can't go on tonight," but he never says that he does, so we have to assume that he fell to the temptation. The end of the video confirms that.

    General CommentThat's kissing... The song is about resisting sexual temptation. There's nothing wrong or immoral about kissing.
