Lover be sure, be sure
there's no wolf at the door
never you fear, you can stay here
I can sleep on the floor

Will you come back?
come back if you ever get the chance
No funny stuff we'll just catch up
waiting underneath the neon heart

But no, no, no, we know each other far too well

Once all the flames have passed
and our blood turns to ash
we can talk again,our kids can be friends
and you don't have to mean it
just nod your head
But no, no, no, we know each other far too well

Lover ,please, if you really must leave
will you flash thoses eyes
my way one more time
even if it sets this room on fire
But no, no, no(3x) we know each other far too well.

    General CommentI think it's about a person who is/was involved with someone who is leaving/left them. They're afraid that one this person leaves they won't see them again. "Will you come back? When you ever get the chance?"

    Assuring the someone they'll not try to push them back into a relationship in the line: "No funny stuff, We'll just catch up."

    Each time I hear the line "But no, no, no, we know each other far too well" they seem to realize they're being unrealistic again.

    "Once all the flames have passed and our blood turns to ash" "We can talk again, our kids can be friends." They are so into this someone they are willing to settle for friendship after their feelings fade.

    "Lover, Please, If you really must leave will you flash thoses eyes my way one more time even if it sets this room on fire" It seems this whole time they were desperately clinging for more time with this person. But now they're beginning to let go of them and accept things completely.

    My Opinionmy opinion is that this is like that song Disco 2000, where Jarvis is singing about how he and Deborah had this really intense thing goin on when they were young (all the fellas loved her cause she got breasts first, he loved her for a deeper more obscure reasons), but years later he'd be totally cool with seeing her again, even if she's married with a baby. unlike the narrator in this song, though, Jarvis probably wouldn't wanna get it with Deb if she showed up because she turned out to be trash and he's a rock star
