"This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things" as written by Matthew Davies, James Davies, Sean Bellers-smith, Gavin Butler, David Rhys Lewis, Gareth Lawrence and Jason Perry....
I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone we'll still be begging for more

She looks at him, her heartbeat starts to melt
She said, "I made you up to hurt myself"
You leave the room and I smell you on my clothes
You're dangerous and beautiful, my thorn and my rose

Let's just make things work
There's nowhere better then here

I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone we'll still be begging for more

I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone we'll still be begging for more

I hate the pain that I went and put you through
'Cause I will never be perfect 'cause I'll never be you
What the air doesn't see, the heart can't breath
But all that pain went away when I saw you leave

Let's just make things work
There's nowhere better then this

I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone we'll still be begging for more

I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone we'll still be begging for more

Say what you want, it would always end
(This was never gonna be simple)
Say what you want, it was all pretend
(This was never gonna be simple)

Say what you want, it would always end
(This was never gonna be simple)
Say what you want, it was all pretend
(This was never gonna be simple)

I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone we'll still be begging for more

I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone we'll still be begging for more

This was never gonna be simple
(Begging for more)
This was never gonna be simple
(Begging for more)

This was never gonna be simple
(Begging for more)
This was never gonna be simple
(Begging for more)

This was never gonna be simple
This was never gonna be simple

    My InterpretationTo me, this is about a relationship ending. He is still in love with the girl and he beleives she is still in love with him. However, the girl is trying to end it as he obviously did something to "hurt" her and put her through pain. But he's trying to tell her not to end it as "there's nowhere better than this". The "this was never gunna be simple" bit I think is him saying that the relationship was never going to be easy, but she can't just bottle it and let it die out. Instead she should be trying and fighting for it.

    General CommentThis is probably my favourite song on their new album.

    I think "her heartbeat starts to melt" should be "her heart it starts to melt". It seems to make more sense, but it's pretty obscure to listen to.
