Pardon me
Want to live in a fantasy
Quietly
Show you everything you'll ever need
I hope you'll take it
I know you're faking just a little bit
Come on and taste it
Just get excited 'cause you're giving it

Come and see
How the wind in your hair will feel differently
Catch and release the lure above

Here we are
In a backwater overflow
Later on
don't say I didn't tell you so
Maybe I didn't but you're taking it
Knew you were faking just a little bit
Now that you taste it
No need to fight it 'cause you're giving it

Follow me down the streams of sweat on your body
Can't believe the lure was enough
Do you see how the wind in your hair now feels differently
Catch and release the lure above

And who knows
And how this feeling grows
Was it truly worth, truly worth the starting
And who knows
Why the engine's blown
Hope it's truly worth, truly worth the parting

Follow me down the streams of sweat on your body
Can't believe the lure was enough
Do you see how the wind in your hair now feels differently, oh
Catch and release the lure above

Guess the lure was enough
Guess the lure was enough
Yes the lure was enough

    My OpinionThis is the most seductive song I have ever heard in my life...pure poetry as opposed to what a rapper would bluntly verse in his lyrics.

    General CommentSuper sexy song. I originally thought that he was talking to a virgin, and it's about how things will change. (how the wind in your hair will feel differently). The line where he says "Knew you were faking just a little bit" has something to do with how life with out sex is unfulfilled and you go through life faking things until you have sex and once you do things become real. Things finally feel different, love feels different, being alive actually feels alive.
    I still think thats what the song is about, but I think it can be directed to more than just sex. I think it's about how doing anything for the first time changes things. The other "first time" in this song could be about is drugs, but I don't think it's solely about drugs. This song seems too sensual to be about something with out some sort of sexual meaning behind it.

    General Commentpretty easy to pick up the meaning after a thorough read-through.. he's pretty much talking about someone he's hooking up with and the games that are played throughout.

    i love the fishing references here to describe the game of sex, etc. "the lure was enough" - he put the right amount of himself out there for her to bite.

    the title is of course basically the theme of the entire act- this is just a hookup, nothing serious. and based on the line "why the engine's blown," the sex at the beginning of the catch has ruined the future of the relationship

    General Commentcan't believe no one's really commented on the most sexual line of the song in my opinion:
    "come on and taste it/just get excited cause you're giving it."
    it exudes sexual implications, specifically oral sex, but I guess it could also be referencing a drug as well.
    Either way, its an extremely sexy song.

    My InterpretationAgreed on the virgin part. The guy is surprised how easily she gave in. "Catch and release"... he goes through girls in a snap and moves on. I don't see much of a reference to drugs. "Just get excited 'cause you're giving it" might as well be the guy trying to get her to appreciate their love-making more. He's experienced, unlike her, and shows her that. He tells her that things will never be the same and how the "wind in the hair will feel differently". Mostly, he is just underlining how easy it was to lure her into the hookup. He might have been looking for a challenge... someone who wasn't so easy to catch.
