"Kept" as written by Mark Weinberg and Matt / Nathanson....
I watched the flames slow and strange
Make the walls fill my eyes
I heard your voice through the noise
I was cold and it was warm inside

And I should have kept my head
Should have kept my arms inside
I believe it now
I should have kept my head
I should have kept my heart, my heart

Shooting stars, falling leaves
The more things change, the more I sleep
I took her heart, I licked her wounds
And when morning came, it felt like truth

And I should have kept my hands
I should have kept my arms inside
I believe you now
I should have kept my head
I should have kept my heart, my heart

I'm on my knees
And I shoulda kept my hands
I should have kept my arms inside
Yeah I believe you now
I should have kept my head
I should have kept my heart, my heart

    My InterpretationFirst of all, I love this entire album. That being said, I think that a man meets the woman of his dreams. Unfortunately she does not feel the same. SHe has feelings for him...but not like that. He helps her through some problem she may have hence "I took her heart, I licked her wounds..." And just like on the rollercoaster he did not keeps his hands, (or his heart) inside the car. It was torn apart...
