I would kill to be your clothes
Cling to your body and hang from your bones
But I could make a mark If you would let me start

You've been feeling smaller
Take a different number
Like you do
Like you do
When you talk about it
You don't want to hear it
Tell me more, tell it all, can you take it

I would kill to be the cold
Tracing your body and shaking your bones
But I can't sleep at night
I can't sleep at night

You've been feeling smaller
Take a different number
Like you do
Like you do
When you talk about it
You don't want to hear it
Tell me more, tell it all, can you take it

I can find the things that I have left behind tonight if I try
If I try
I could find the things that I have left behind tonight if I tried
If I tried

You've been feeling smaller
Take a different number
Like you do
Like you do
When you talk about it
You don't want to hear it
Tell me more, tell it all, can you take it

    My Interpretationto me, this song is sung from the perspective of a girl who is in love with a guy who doesn't love her back, or at least doesn't give her what she deserves. she sings about how desperate she is for him, but also sings about his problems. he is probably dealing with depression and/or self esteem issues, and when he feels small, he simply gets it on with another girl ("you've been feeling smaller / take a different number" could be a play on words: on the one hand, "different number" talks about his clothes cause he "feels smaller", on the other hand he takes a "different number" (another girls' mobile phone number) cause he "feels smaller" and wants to boost his self esteem by having sex, or he just wants to feel desired by and/or close to someone). the girl from whose perspective this is written, is, obviously, disappointed, hurt and angry. she knows that the guy is denying his true self and she knows he can't even really talk about his problems and about his many affairs because he would probably break down crying upon facing his life. so in her hurt and anger she kind of challenges him to talk about it all ("tell me more, tell it all, can you take it"). finally, before the last chorus, she realises that she is a lot stronger than this. that instead of sitting here with a guy who is obviously in a heap of shit but also completely unable and unwilling to get better AND who, on top of it all, has hurt her deeply, that instead of all of this she could seriously try to get better. cause she herself has been feeling down and depressed bc of her unrequited love and also bc of having to deal with the personal misery of him who has hurt her. I love this second to last stanza - it's her seeing a glimpse of a better future, realising she's better than this and it probably is the first step in cutting the ties to this guy. the guy who keeps drowning, but who she has to free herself from if she does not want to drown as well.

    alternatively, the guy has not hurt her on purpose cause they've never been together, but she loves him nonetheless and seeing him suffer and hearing about his women tears her down.

    one might also interpret the thing about his women differently -- but I am pretty sure that it's a song about a girl in love with a hopeless guy, who cannot give her what she deserves and who - ultimately - cannot even give that to himself.

    just my interpretation - feel free to comment :)
    also wrote this in a very heteronormative view - feel free to switch genders in your imagination!
