We can keep in touch if that's what you want,
you can call me too if that's what friends do.
It's not more than one, if that's what you thought.
You'd say I don't have the room for you,
But I do.

I could stay inside if that's what you want
I won't say a word for a day or two.
When I'm in my room I know what to do about you.

I can sleep,
soon.

When I get home I am kept from every room in the house
I'll walk down the hall where you have gone
to feel the way it felt again.

I am what you need when you can't find it somewhere else.
I am what you want when you don't want anything else.

    General Comment:This is definitely one of my favourites from the album. I think this song is about being led on by someone or an on/off relationship. I'm not really sure.

    General Comment:I agree with emilypowers.

    I think it's about trying to be friends after a break up, and the person who ended the relationship being confused about their feelings. Ultimately dragging this person along with them on their quest to try and figure out what they want and how they feel. I sense a lot of leading on, guilt tripping, and neglecting in the lyrics.

    My Opinion:yes most definitely agree with both above comments

    the last part of the lyrics
    "I am what you need when you can't find it somewhere else.
    I am what you want when you don't want anything else."
    is saying that the other person in the relationship isn't interested in them until they can't find anyone else so they keep taking them back and ultimately fucking with their heart, you know
