When we were lovers (lovers)
Feelings

Remembering the accident
The puppy love slipped from your heart
Along with the nonsense
Suddenly you burned our flag
Declared independence
Eternity was cut too short
But I admit

My lover was already gone
I just warmed up the seat
For somebody new
That you wrere bound to meet
That somebody who
Would take the place of me
In your feelings

Gradually you overstayed
Our memories would not be played
To friends in a slide show
There had never been that much to see
At the end of our rainbow
Humidity and last sunbeams
In a vacant lot

My lover was already gone
I just warmed up the seat
For somebody new
That you wrere bound to meet (lovers)
That somebody who
Would take the place of me (lovers)
In your feelings

Whoa, oh, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

My lover was already gone
I just warmed up the seat
For somebody new
That you wrere bound to meet (lovers)
That somebody who
Would take the place of me (lovers)
In your feelings

When we were lovers
When we were lovers
In your feelings

    My InterpretationSeems pretty straight-forward: a guy and a girl were dating and the guy lost interest pretty fast, assuming he ever had feelings for her at all, and she eventually felt strung along the entire time. She had stronger feelings for him than he did for her.

    I like how they use the metaphor of the end of a rainbow to signify the death of their relationship, comparing the usual pot of gold to what a rainbow truly is (mist and sunlight) and ... a whole lot of nothing (an empty lot). Very poetic, I think.

    General CommentWhat's the accident? That the love slipped away, or something that led to it?
