And there's a lighthouse blinking on the edge of a cliff,
and I know I really shouldn't, but I'm drawn to it.
The people light fires in a line across the shore.

And there's a jewel in a fire that shouldn't have lit,
and you know you really shouldn't better reach for it,
and I know, I'm never gonna get to you this way.

And there was sadness, there was sadness and lines.
Lies and numbers, and there were wonders in signs.
.. still say something. know that something ain't right..

ooooh, oooh.


And there's a voice that's calling you to walk the rocks,
and I know I really shouldn't, but I have to cross,
and I know, I'm never gonna reach the shore this way.

And there's a road that's begging for your feet to trip,
and I know I really shouldn't but I'll run to it,
and I know I'm never gonna get to you this way.

And there was sadness, there was sadness and lines.
Lies and numbers, and there were wonders in signs.
.. still say something. know that something ain't right..

oooooh, oh oh oh.

Stop. 'cause you go too far.
You know you shouldn't, yet here you are.
Honey, here we are.

Sway. if you'd only see.
You only wanted this not to be.
Honey, can't you see.

And there was sadness, there was sadness and lines.
Lies and numbers, and there were wonders in signs.
.. still say something. know that something ain't right..
something ain't right..
something ain't right..

something ain't right..

something ain't right..

.. and all the thing, that you can't have, make you want them more.
and all the thing, that you can't have, make you want them more.
and all the thing, that you can't have, make you want them more.
and all the thing you can't..
and all the thing you can't..

    General CommentI think that this song is about human curiosity. We're naturally drawn to do the things that others say we can't. I think it's also about taking occasional risks in life.

    Stop. 'cause you go too far.
    You know you shouldn't, yet here you are.
    Honey, here we are.

    It implies that had neither of them taken the risks they had, they wouldn't have ended up together.
