I know you eat your lovers when you sense that something isn't right
I hope that's over and you're letting him go
I always wondered what your gypsy heart would feel like
I got a feeling that you're letting me know
I told your sister that you're all I ever dream of
Your sister told me that I better move slow
And then she told me things I never could've dreamed of
And then she told me things I should not have known

Rain comes down like it always does
This time, I've got seeds on ground

Rain comes down like it always does
This time, I've got seeds on ground

Lay down your lantern, coat of arms, broken drums
And dance with me
Lay down your lantern, coat of arms, broken drums
And dance with me
Lay down your lantern, coat of arms, broken drums
And dance with me

I know you got your reasons when you're keeping your defenses up
It seems to me too much, try letting them go
The hips, two feet, the misses, and we knock each other senseless, love
We come together and we start to move slow
You've got me thinking that you're all I ever need now
I think I love you and it's starting to show
And if you haven't shown me all the things I never dreamed of
I do not think that I'd be missing you so

Now we face a choice of three
One is you, the other, me
Free as air is third, you see
It's all I wanna be

Rain comes down like it always does, this time, I've got seeds on ground

    My InterpretationMy interpretation is that this song is about a relationship that is dying for some reason or another. This is supported by the lyrics:
    "I told your sister that you're all I ever dream of
    Your sister told me that I better move slow"

    The lyric: "rain comes down, like it always does, this time I've got seeds on ground" seems to indicate the writer is seeing the end of his relationship coming, and he has prepared himself for the worst.

    "Lay down your lantern, coat of arms, broken drums
    And dance with me" In this lyric, it seems as though the writer is asking their partner to talk things over, maybe in some way trying to salvage the relationship.


    The lyric: "The hips, two feet, the misses, and we knock each other senseless, love
    We come together and we start to move slow" seems to imply an argument has occurred between the couple, and in the calm they've come together.

    "And if you haven't shown me all the things I never dreamed of
    I do not think that I'd be missing you so" seems to imply the writer is beginning to hate the idea of not having his significant other, right as the end of their relationship was about to happen.

    "Now we face a choice of three
    One is you, the other, me
    Free as air is third, you see
    It's all I wanna be" is the final lyric of the song, it explores the possibilities that could come out of the situation, either they go their separate ways or stay together.
