come fill another glass
i'm still under water
warm up your father's car
like the oldest daughter
i know what to say,
i know i'm spoken for

come fill another glass
we're still under water
turn up the static now
weather's getting hotter
i know what to say,
i know we're spoken for

i don't want to know where
you found that old slice of a smile
something entirely unfair
it's one thing i'll keep just the same, dear

it's just that i don't want to know where
you found that old slice of a smile
something entirely unfair
it's one thing i'll keep just the same, dear

it's just that i don't want to know

and it's one thing i'll keep just the same, just the same
it's one thing i'll keep just the same

    My InterpretationI adore this song.

    For me, it's about the moment you see someone you used to care for deeply. Seeing them feels like being underwater; everything is disjointed and disconnected, almost surreal. He knows things have moved on (he is spoken for), but in that moment, he is drowning in memories of how it used to be between them.

    The saddest part for me is the bridge. It's so heartbreaking. He doesn't want to know how she managed to become happy again, feels that it's unfair, but also is keeping that memory of her smile close to his heart.

    i dunno. just wanted to share my ideas
