You never deliver
In the times when I need you
If you're tired from the day
I don't blame you
But I still need you to follow through
Late at night
You and I never work out quite right
You never want me to do anything
And when I'm in the mood I think you're pretty rude
When I'm full of energy you don't see me
I'm trying to be serious and you're just laughing
Late at night
You and I never work out quite right
I'm getting better at listening
But I don't know where you go late at night
And when I've moved along
You suddenly can't seem to get enough
Of what we had
Late at night
You and I never work out quite right

    My InterpretationThis sounds like a relationship that is going poorly. For anyone who has had a long term relationship go south, you know the feeling of the narrator in this song.

    "You never deliver"
    "I still need you to follow through"

    You can literally see someone fighting with their significant other asking them to be more available or try to find some sort of common ground. I think the next set of lyrics adds more background to the problems that's happening in the relationship

    You never want me to do anything
    And when I'm in the mood I think you're pretty rude
    When I'm full of energy you don't see me
    I'm trying to be serious and you're just laughing

    I can see the couple fighting again. This could be a simple interpretation of a person who wants to leave the house and go do things while their partner might be a couch potato and not wanting to do anything.

    There can also be some really deep meanings here. You can interpret this as the narrator wanting to do something that's more like a life goal and being ridiculed for it. You can somewhat reflect it on a sexless relationship if you put together the entire song that makes more sense. The basic meaning is that you can add whatever individual situation to it, but you have someone who wants something they aren't getting.

    The last verse is saying simply that when they leave the relationship then that person is willing to give 150% to be back in the relationship.

    I still feel like there's a sexual connotation to it disguised in a well crafted song that has a positive tempo to it. "Late at night you and I never work out quite right" kind of points me towards that.

    I think you can reflect on the line "I don't know where you go late at night." as a way of saying the person shut down or they physically are leaving. The line prior about listening kind of makes me think its the person is shutting down in the conversations.

    Anyway, I think its a great song that can be purely about the relationship or about their sexual life. Its fun to play too.
