What's wrong? What are you afraid of?
The Love Below?

She stays alone, never sheds a single tear
She stays in the coolest moods, clearly woman of the year
She and all her girlfriends, they go out dressed to win
She comes back to the cooler side of town
But she lives in my lap

She lives in my lap
Forever my fiance
She lives in my lap
Don't leave, don't stay
She lives in my lap
I'll get the courage one day

Make me want you, make me miss you
Make me wonder where you are, then forget you
Girl remind me, just who we are
We're oh so close, but yet so far

Baby why are you acting like this?
I don't care about any of them
I care about you!
Baby I love you!

You've got me open wide (I love you)
Just Come inside (baby)
It's yours (it's yours)
I'm yours (I'm yours)
For sure (for sure)
Play baby play

She lives in my lap
Forever my fiance
She lives in my lap
Don't leave, don't stay
She lives in my lap
I'll get the courage one day

    General Commentjust a note, the lyrics in the album book say "Don't leave, don't stay" not "don't need no chain", like I've seen on several sights.

    I had always interpreted it, as some ppl here have said, as being about a difficult relationship in which one, or both don't want to committ. Or he knows she's not the one but wants her to be, after growing attached. "make me want you, make me miss you" Maybe Im biased by comparing it to situations Ive been in.
    "make me wonder where you are then forget you" Perhaps at the same time he's saying, make me/let me forget you (I'll get the courage one day) to face the truth that we're not meant to be. Until then forever my fiancee.
    this isn't going anywhere- so make me love you, or make me forget you.


    However it's use in Idlewild, I guess could make people go the Lost/Dead Love route
