"Life Round Here" as written by and James Blake Litherland....
Part time love is life round here
We never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done

Now we're at square one
And we waited too long
So we're back to square one

We never done

Part time love is life round here
We never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done

Now we're at square one
And we waited too long
So we're back to square one
So we're back to square one

Part time love is life round here
We never done
Part time love is life round here
We never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done
Every

Part time love
We never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done
Every

    My InterpretationI attached a different meaning to this song, this is a personal interpretation, but it feels like he got out of a serious relationship and he's trying to console himself by sleeping around.

    >Part time love is the life round here
    >We're never done
    It feels like he's bitter about serious relationships and instead has to rely on casual relationships to satisfy his needs. Maybe he was burnt in the past by someone that didn't care about him.

    >Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
    Like others said, it's awesome, but the problem is that it's still rainy and depressing. If it follows my interpretation, he's sleeping around and it feels good, but he's still not with a person he really cares about.

    >Now we're at square one
    >and we waited too long
    >so we're back to square one
    He wants to say something to this person he was in a serious relationship with, to try and get back together perhaps, and maybe even imagines that this person wants to say the same, but they're not talking. Now they're back to being friends.

    Maybe my judgement is clouded because this is my situation, but I attached this meaning to it. It's a personal interpretation, take that as you will.

    General CommentPertaining to the line "Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day", remember he's English. I'm sure he's not a bears fan. He might be talking about touching down in a plane, something I'm sure he's very familiar with at this point. Going along with the theme that he's not able to commit time to a relationship, touch down on a rainy day is a little victory. It means you haven't died in a crashing plane, but it's still kind of a bummer to be away from being able to find love.

    My InterpretationI can't believe no one's commented on this song yet. Such a good song. Best song on the album for sure. Just the way the song climaxes is brilliant.

    I think this song is about sex. "Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day" is what it feels like to orgasm (Touch down on a rainy day is awesome, because getting a TD in the rain is much harder than on a sunny day).

    The way the song advances also gives the feeling of sex. It starts off soft and sensual, before getting to the climax (around 2:25 of the song), then it calms down again, giving the very feeling of working up to an orgasm, and climaxing, and then having it be done.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about two people who care for one another, but due to circumstances or obstacles in their lives, it isn't possible for them to fully commit themselves to a deeper relationship.

    Perhaps every small step they take toward it is the "touchdown on a rainy day."

    Each time they meet (maybe periodically over time), they realize they are "never done," because of their inability to pursue more with one another. "Now we're back at square one..."
