Well, she calls me up when she's broken,
Says to leave my front door open.
I come home to find her smoking,
With here eyes all fragile and thin.
She's always been hopeless at hoping,
Always coped badly with coping,
And I never know when she's joking;
She never lets anyone in.
I know I'd be a fool to let
Her run away with my heart.
She'll never tire of this game.
Loving her is like playing
Catch in the dark.
I'm a teardrop in an ocean of flame.

And we drink too much for a Wednesday.
She'll ask me why none of her men stay.
I tell her just what her friends say,
But it never goes down too well.
She'll stay here till late in the evening,
But she's always arriving or leaving.
She never decides to believe in
The people who know her so well.
And I know I'd be a fool to let
Her run away with my heart.
She'll never tire of this game.
Loving her is like playing
Catch in the dark.
I'm a teardrop in an ocean of flame.

Well, she says if we're single at forty,
We'll get married and move to the country,
But I know she'll never want me.
And it's 5:15 in the morning.
I reach for her whilst I'm yawning.
She leaves me with no warning...

    General CommentWell, she calls me up when she's broken,
    Says to leave my front door open.
    I come home to find her smoking,
    With here eyes all fragile and thin.
    She's always been hopeless at hoping,
    Always coped badly with coping,
    And I never know when she's joking;
    She never lets anyone in.

    Mike describes bad characteristics of a woman who needs him at her worst.
    He remembers she didn't changed much since the last time.

    I know I'd be a fool to let
    Her run away with my heart.
    She'll never tire of this game.
    Loving her is like playing
    Catch in the dark.
    I'm a teardrop in an ocean of flame.

    He realises loving her is a joke, he thinks he won't be enough to cope with her.

    And we drink too much for a Wednesday.
    She'll ask me why none of her men stay.
    I tell her just what her friends say,
    But it never goes down too well.
    She'll stay here till late in the evening,
    But she's always arriving or leaving.
    She never decides to believe in
    The people who know her so well.

    He plays along with her game, but she only worries about her own and
    doesn't trust other people to be with her.

    I think the woman in this story is using the man to
    solve her problems which she has made over and over again.
