"Our Deal" as written by and Bethany Cosentino....
When you leave me
The bed is empty
And I feel crazy
Cause I didn't say anything

I wish you would tell me
How you really feel
But you'll never tell me
Cause that's not our deal

When you leave me
You take away everything
You take all my money
You take all my weed

I wish you would tell me
How you really feel
But you'll never tell me
Cause that's not our deal

I wish you would tell me
How you really feel
But you'll never tell me
Cause that's not our deal

That's your deal
That's not my deal
That's your my deal
That's not my deal
That's your my deal
That's not my deal
That's your my deal
That's not my deal

    My InterpretationI believe it's a Friends With Benefits situation gone bad. The narrator developed feelings outside of what they agreed on and now the narrator is beginning to feel like the FWB is taking advantage by borrowing money, smoking the narrator's weed, etc. But all the narrator wants is a relationship; but doesn't know if saying it would end whatever they currently have or actually result in what the narrator thinks they want.

    This song is the best to crank up when you're driving around with the windows down out on back roads. Love Best Coast.

    General Commentthis song is a great song to sing to in the car in a rainy day when you feeling down .

    but of course the song is about her being in love with someone i guess her friend but i guess her little friend with benefit doesn't want to have any part of it anymore and since he just leaving her with no explanation she is feeling crazy for the guy and she just want to be with him but that was not the whole deal about being friend with benefit in the first place. it was just either being friends with benefit or just being friends.

    My OpinionI get these Camera Obscura feelings when listening to this song. I love the epic... sad voice, almost crying, shattered and fragile voice.

    General CommentThe meaning is fairly self-explanatory. The singer is in love with her FWB, but she knows that he doesn't want to go further because it's not their "deal", or the way their relationship works. They'v established a pattern as FWB and he doesn't want more.
