So settle down
Feels like the earth moves
when I do.

So still, I'll sit... for you.
Until I can not move.

Did the bed shake, the house just fell down.
The city's in ruins, did you feel that too?

I'll admit I'm done.
That last earthquake was a knockout punch.

I'm bored again.
Torn between giving in, and getting lost for good
The silence is in my throat.
What time is it?

The bed shook and the house just fell down
the city's in ruins
and they're all dead and buried.
I'm sorry I had to move.

    My InterpretationBeautiful song and a beautiful music video, too. I think the lyrics are mostly about sharing bed with his wife. When he is tossing or turning in the night, it's like he's afraid that he'll wake her up. Every movement is like an "earthquake," and then he sits there in silence, wondering "did you feel that too?"

    The only line that confuses me is:
    "I'm bored again, torn between giving in or getting lost for good."
