"Not in Love" as written by Robert James Smith, Ethan Kath, Alice Glass and Mark Andrew Holmes....
I saw your picture hangin' on the back of my door
Won't give you my heart
No one lives there anymore
And we were lovers
Now we can't be friends
Fascination ends
Here we go again
'Cause it's cold outside, when you coming home
'Cause it's hot inside, isn't that enough

I'm not in love

Could it be that time has taken it's toll
Won't take you so far, I am in control
And we were lovers
Now we can't be friends
Fascination ends
Here we go again
'Cause it's cold outside, when you coming home
'Cause it's hot inside, isn't that enough

I'm not in love
I'm not
And we were lovers
Now we can't be friends
Fascination ends
Here we go again
'Cause it's cold outside, when you coming home
'Cause it's hot inside, isn't that enough

I'm not in love
I'm not in love
I'm not in love
I'm not in love
We are not in love
We are not in love
We are not in love
We are not in love
We are not in love

    General CommentI think it is definitely the singer is trying to convince himself and the other party that they are not in love,
    with them obviously still being so. He still asks 'when you coming home'??

    The love isn't dying.. 'It's hot inside'

    My OpinionI think the song means that he was in a great relationship and for whatever reason it was over and he is trying to convince himself or to both of them that they are not in love anymore. Although he probably would love to hang on to the greatest memories and keep thinking there is something there but sure enough there is not.

    General CommentA great Platinum Blond cover. Ethan did the vocals for this one, so that's why it's so off. I don't think it's weak. I actually like them. They seem to fit.

    I don't think the lyrics need explication, as it's pretty obvious.

    General CommentI loooove the version with Robert Smith. The other vocals just annoy me. The songmeaning is quite obvious, I think you are trying and trying and trying again (and failing?) to convince yourself that you are not in love.

    General CommentI think this song it's about someone who has an official relationship (...cause it's cold outside, when you coming home
    cause it's hot inside, isn't that enough...) and it's loosing a lover because maybe he cannot give more than that, the status of lover. He is so confused and trying to convince herself that he is "Not in love".

    General CommentI am on the outside obviously because to me I hear a man (or woman) who protests too much. Why would anyone keep the picture of an ex on the back of his/her door if there were not special feelings for that person? And s/he doesn't say he doens't live in her heart; rather, nobody lives in her heart. That would imply (to me) hurt feelings that she has yet to deal with... And when one no longer cares, s/he moves on; s/she doesn't keep a photo and be too hurt to allow anyone in her heart. That's my take on it, anyway.
