One second,
one letter,
one move,
I'm leaving after this,
I can't stand no,
the same words you preach me,
one second,
one letter,
one move,
I've had enough of this,
I can cope well without you, my ruler,

no-one will understand me, no,
because I don't know why,
we're too diverse in every way,

one second,
one letter,
one move,
I'm leaving after this,
I can't stand no,
the same words you preach me,

we're too diverse in every way,
because I don't know why,
???????,

I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
waiting for a better day,

but I've gotta wait,
I've gotta wait,
for a better day,
a better day now,

I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
there's nothing better to do,

no-one will understand me, no,
because I don't know why,
we're too diverse in every way,

I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
waiting for a better day,

but I've gotta wait,
I've gotta wait,
for a better day,
a better day now,

I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
waiting for a better day,

but I've gotta wait,
I've gotta wait,
for a better day,

I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away,
I can't get away

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
