Don't say hello or say goodbye
Just say it to some other guy
Oh, I know I've seen your face (Oh I know, oh I know)
Grounding planes from JFK to LA

Keeping no secrets in your bag beside me

You do absolutely nothing for me
You do nothing for me
Nothing
You do absolutely nothing for me
You do nothing for me
But don't ignore me
Please, don't ignore me

You've got my number
I've got your name
Tattooed upon my chest
Above a grave
Oh, you know I've chased your face (You and your pretty face)
Hopping planes from JFK to LA... X

Keeping my secrets in the seat beside you

You do absolutely nothing for me
You do nothing for me
Nothing
You do absolutely nothing for me
You do nothing for me
But don't ignore me
Please, don't ignore me

Keep your distance
And I'll keep mine
Just keep your distance
And I'll keep my...
My resistance
My resistance!

You do absolutely nothing for me
You do nothing for me
Nothing
You do nothing, nothing, nothing for me
You do nothing for me
But don't ignore me...

    My InterpretationI think this is about someone in a relationship with someone who's a narcissistic type who's on an ego trip and believes whomever they are with should just deal with it. This person thinks they're all that and that no one is good enough for them such as in the lines "You do absolutely nothing for me
    You do nothing for me
    But don't ignore me
    Please, don't ignore me" they are saying like all the others before you, you do nothing for me -- but they're ego also insists that they not be ignored. I dated a guy who was like this so I have some familiarity. He was very good looking and he knew it, everyone told him be looked like Jared Leto and he did, but he needed to curb his ego for sure. So the lyrics here point to someone so into themselves there's no room for them to love anyone else. As heard in these lines "Oh, you know I've chased your face (You and your pretty face)
    Hopping planes from JFK to LA... X. " here they are saying the person is just another pretty face (they've dated many others) but essentially you're nothing to me even if you think you're as good as me trust me you're not, is the vibe I'm getting. I think the other person in the song also has an ego, but not the same size ego as the other who tells them you do absolutely nothing for me (sounds like they won the ego war with that line alone). The rest of the lyrics fall in line with my theory I believe too.
