"Pots and Pans" as written by and James Hince Alison Mosshart....
I can't find enough pots and pans
Let alone knives in my kitchen
To keep you cooking
I can't find enough love in my heart
Let alone in my bones
To keep you standing

Ain't enough salt in the ocean
That cares enough to keep you floating
There ain't a drop left in my tank
To move, move, move your dead weight
I ain't joking
You're so good
I ain't joking when I said
You're so good

I can't find enough pots and pans
Let alone knives in my kitchen
To keep you cooking
To keep you cooking
I can't find enough love in my heart
Let alone in my bones
To keep you standing

These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you

    My OpinionI love love love this entire CD, blood pressures. There is not a song on there that I dont like!
    I think this song is about a girl and boy. The boy isnt doing enough in the relationship to keep it going. He's not putting in the effort. And the girl is saying that she doesnt have enough love in her to carry them both. Beautiful. I love songs that break away from the generic. Very simple very nice song.

    General CommentI guess it's about drifting apart in a relationship and finally ending it.

    "to keep you cooking" - reminds me of "to keep the fire alive", as they once wrote in "sweet cloud"
    she not having enough knives could indicate that no matter what she says, he just doesn't care - which references to future starts slow a bit
    love is just not enough to stand each other anymore and she feels empty, drained and powerless while he appears to be so cold and not caring, as if he were dead.
    so the dawn dawns, and all things come to an end, and they won't forget how it ended.

    I love all that kitchen metaphoric that relates to the heat and the fire in a relationship.
    I also love all the references to the other tracks of Blood Pressures. When consciously listening to all songs on Blood Pressures, you get the feeling that the songs all fit together somehow. the knives and the fire, and the context symbolizing the callousness, references to "wild charms" & "dna"
    the empty tank to "nail in my coffin"
    the days they'll never forget could reference to the door mentioned in "heart is a beating drum"
