Out of touch and older than I look
I've got nothing to say
To my oldest friends
Warmth is in, the awkward silence
Carried on an anxious glance
Hold my hand, let's dance

Don't let it get lost
Don't let it get lost
At all cost
At all cost

When I'm calm and all out of line
All my doubts are dead
Take me back to bed

Don't let it get lost
Don't let it get lost
At all cost
At all cost [x2]

    General Comment"Out of touch and older than I look" I think it's about a person in the kind of relationship where you forget who you are, as you are too wrapped up in making the other person happy.
    "I've got nothing to say to my oldest friends" again they've sacrificed their friendships as their partner is maybe the jealous type.
    "Warmth is in the awkward silence, carried on an anxious glance" Conversations are dead in this relationship, and the only affection received, feels awkward. It makes them anxious and scared that they're not good enough, knowing something is amiss, but they pretend all is fine--"Hold my hand, let's dance"

    "When I'm calm..." After they've voiced their opinion about the lack of love or the problems in the relationship, they get silenced and told they're "...out of line"

    "All my doubts are dead," The partner eases all their doubts by explaining them away....
    "Take me back to bed" This is not said in an affectionate way but rather paints the image of someone being controlled or with the lack of confidence. They give in once more, forgive and forget whatever their partner has done wrong.

    "Don't let it get lost, at all cost." The common theory that you need to give it your all in a relationship, to make it work, was taken too literally by this person. And even though they've lost their essence, and all that was dear to them, they still believe this is needed to make this relationship work.
