You've got sparks
It's not enough and we make time
Speaking sheets
And closed doors to dull out words

But all you do is lay around
Spending time
Smoking cigarettes
Boy you know your heart's so big
And you could love
Give it all you've got
Sitting in clouds of smoke
Waiting all alone, why
Talking to me on the phone
When you're feeling low

And we make plans
But you don't see them
Keeping space

And open eyes
And empty minds
You're not anywhere

But all you do is lay around
Spending time
Smoking cigarettes
Boy you know your heart's so big
And you could love
Give it all you've got
Sitting in clouds of smoke
Waiting all alone, why
Talking to me on the phone
When you're feeling low

Fill your lungs, waiting, waiting
Fill your lungs, waiting, waiting
For yourself...

But all you do is lay around
Spending time
Smoking cigarettes
Boy you know your heart's so big
And you could love
Give it all you've got
Sitting in clouds of smoke
Waiting all alone, why
Talking to me on the phone
When you're feeling low

    My InterpretationThis is such a sweet song. Emma Louise's voice is so beautifully mellow :3 I loved "Jungle" but I think I love this one more.

    I feel like she's singing about a boy who she's friends with (or in love with??) that isn't doing anything with his life (sitting at home smoking cigarettes) but she thinks he could be something more than that. They make plans but he just seems to drift in and out of her life. He's not grounded, but he's not going anywhere either.

    So it's sad in a way. She wonders why he sits alone, why he doesn't do something about his life. :(

    That's just my take on it!
