Only ever be the girl who just almost died in my house
Half-naked, looking through your telephone
Run you a bath and try hard not to freak out

It's all free and too easy, giving it away, giving it away
It's not cheap, but here I am giving it away, giving it away
Giving it away

Don't deny, I won't deny, I won't deny that strange encounter
The moment you came to, I swore I would change
Though neither one of us will leave unscathed
At least we'll both go on living

Wanna find somebody
Not like this
Yeah, I'm a decent person
Little aimless

It's all free and too easy, giving it away, giving it away
It's not cheap, but here I am giving it away, giving it away
Giving it away

Don't deny, I won't deny, I won't deny that strange encounter
The moment you came to, I swore I would change
Though neither one of us will leave unscathed
At least we'll both go on living

    My InterpretationSomething went seriously wrong, like a drug overdose, during a "strange encounter" (aka, an encounter with a stranger/casual hookup), where the narrator suddenly realizes that the drugs and casual sex is "free" and "not cheap" but they were "giving [themselves] away." He was trying not to "freak out" about a stranger in desperate need in his house ("almost died in my house"), then "the moment [she] came to [he] swore [he] would change", i.e., would not treat such serious topics so casually.

    General CommentThese are the wrong lyrics!!!
    Don't be my, don't be my, don't be my last strange encounter are the correct ones.
