Oh don't you think
That people are the strangest things.
Design of desire
Means all that the heart requires
Is what it can't recognize.

Oh no, hm

Oh don't you think
That people are the hardest things.
Design of desire
Means all that the heart requires
Is what it can't compromise.

Oh no
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I've made enough enemies.
No I've made enough enemies.

Forget now
How many must I
Forget now
How many must I
Forget now
How many must I forget?

Remember
As many as I
Remember
As many as I
Remember
I must forget.

Regret now
How many do I
Regret now
How many do I
Regret now
How many do I
Regret?

Slender
Oh there are some but they're
Slender
Oh there are some but they're
Slender
Oh there are some but they're
Slender sums I regret.

Oh don't you think
That people are the strangest things
Design of desire
Means all that the heart requires
Is what it can't sympathise.

    General CommentHe's talking about all the girls he has/was/or is in love with and that his desire will even push him to cheating/breaking up with. That's how I see it anyways. He's cheated/ or broken enough hearts and made enough enemies.

    General CommentI don't really know what he's talking about but I love the tune and I love the bit that goes "Oh, don't you think that people are the strangest things?" it's such a lovely song to relax to.

    My InterpretationTo me, dsign of desire means trying to consciously choose who you love. Trying to hard and not followig your instincts. It causes pain and sadness. Listen to the quiet voice of your instincts and be honest to yourself. He's learned this the hard way after a lot of pain.
