This can't just be a chemical
From now any other pain is bearable
I feel as if I'm skidding like Somerset skating

But when you need to puke
And you're feeling so weak
Yeah on the floor folded on your knees

I mean you had me on my knees

This can't just be a chemical
From now any other pain is bearable
I feel as if I'm skidding like Somerset skating

And maybe sending just one 'X'
Is my new goodbye-for-life text
And trying to think just what is next

You've got me on the floor again

All I can picture is held hands coming apart

    My InterpretationA story of lost love.

    The first time the chorus is sung, it is definitely about how love is more than a feeling. When in love anything is possible. Everything will be all right. The whole world is your small crustacean. Somerset skating is a treasured memory for the songwriter - a memory that is always right, and will always stay pure for them.

    Moving on the the first verse, it all goes wrong, but only at the end of the verse is it revealed that the cause of all this grief is the person they are in love with.

    The first verse makes the meaning of the repeat of the chorus change completely. His grief transcends feeling, just as love did before. From now on, any pain is bearable just because it can never compare to the pain he is feeling now.
    The memory of Somerset skating remains perfect, but it is all in the past now. He can never go back, no matter how much he wishes he can.

    The next verse speaks of how he didn't see this coming, and how this love was all he knew - he has no idea what to do with himself.

    All I can picture is held hands coming apart.
