I met you last month at a party
You brought me up, you brought me down
You came to me last night as an apparation
Now you came around

What's with you and all your talk of independence?
What's with me and my lack of innocence?

Keep it locked up inside the pocket
And maybe I will sleep
I'll be right there inside the pocket
And you'll be knee deep

My palms were sweaty and my heart grew big
My leg, my leg was shaking
How badly I wanted you with me
You came to me and said "This could be something"
I'll take something over nothing anyday

What's with me and the way that I've been lately?
What's with you and the way you make me feel?

Keep it locked up inside the pocket
And maybe I will sleep
I'll be right there inside the pocket
And you'll be knee deep

And I'm scared
'Cause these things fall apart
Electric baby
And I've known it from the start
So please forgive me for being like I am
But I'll take you if I can

Keep it locked up inside the pocket
And maybe I will sleep
I'll be right there inside the pocket
And you'll be knee deep

Oooooooh.

    General Commentyea, i agree with IOU_one_galaxy, it is about him liking some girl, and not wanting commitment, because of pain, and "'cause these things fall apart"

    General Commentthis song is exactly like a conversation i had with this boy i love, Joshua, and he lives in Wisconsin, and i am in Canada, so, its hard, and he doesn't want the commitment, he says he isn't strong enough for a long-diatance relationship, but htat he still feels the same.
