"You don't have a Clue" as written by Svein Berge, Torbjorn Brundtland and Anneli Drecker....
It's late in the night, dancing is done
The music has died, you're ready to run

But you don't have a clue
This party hasn't ended yet not for me and you
Now you're just pretending

You're hiding from yourself
Yes you are, yes you are
Like golden rays of sun in the cloud

We're meant to be one, I know we are
If I am the sky then you are my star

Hey, you don't have a clue
This party never ended not for me and you
I know you're just pretending

You're hiding from yourself
Yes you are, yes you are
Like golden rays of sun in the cloud

I will make you see
Haven't you got, haven't you got it yet?
Just lay down for a while next to me

Didn't mean to make you panic
I didn't mean to put you off
Baby it's the way that you've got me

I listen to my heart and it takes you high
And you ask me how, can I show you how?
I need your love right now, now, now

    Song MeaningI agree with Coleman - this song is about the conclusion period of a relationship. It is like a snapshot of one of their last nights out together. She wants the relationship to go on (...this party hasn't ended yet, not for me and you). The way she emphasizes 'yet" and "I need your love" makes you feel her monumental pain and her heartache and mostly her longing for it to work out between them.

    She really loves this someone (We're meant to be one, I know we are, If I am the sky, Then you are my star) and she wants the love to reciprocate (You're hiding from yourself, Guess you are, yes you are, Like golden rays of sun, In the cloud).

    Although there are many songs written about this very fragile situation, this is the very best song written to date.

    General Commentwell , I read this song is about homosexuality
    and also I saw it in some web they used in this theme too
    You're hiding from yourself,
    Guess you are, yes you are,
    Didn't mean to make you panic,
    Didn't mean to put you off,
    Baby, it's the way that you got me,

    so I don't know
    but what I really know for SURE
    it's this song is the BEST SONG in the ALBUM ...

    General CommentSeems rather self-explanatory. She's hiding (perhaps emotionally) and he believes they'll be together. He perhaps frightened her with his zeal for a relationship.

    General CommentIts not about a relationship.
    Its about coming into yourself(gay, unique or anything). About not living a lie any more and being one with yourself. Its advice from a higher conciousness/angel etc

    Song MeaningI think, viewing it in conjunction with the music video, it seems to be like a story of a suicidal girl whose boy is trying to save her with his love and it doesn't work.

    The vidoe starts out with her being depressed, waking up late, looking at the homeless man and being introspective, perhaps pessimistic about life in general, and then she goes to "swim" but in reality it seems as if she's trying to submerge herself away and if not kill herself, at least remove herself from the world.

    I think the boy is the one who is singing the lyrics - he's trying to tell her how much he adores and loves her, that she's just hiding from the self that can be happy and that all she has to do is lie down next to him, let him love her, and he can help her. There are a lot of warm shots of them holding each other, but if you look carefully at one of the shots, it appears to briefly show broken glass and so I wonder if it's symbolic of her literally leaping to her death, of her flying away, or of her just gone but he doesn't know if she's dead or not.

    Unfortunately, it seems like his arms are empty by the end of the song and she has managed to "get away" after all (not so much from him, but from everything and everyone.)

    General CommentThe lyrics seem to be fairly obvious, at least this is what I thought:
    There was a relationship, but it ended, one of them (e.g. he) wants it to continue, but the other (e.g. she) doesn't think it will work. He thinks she is hiding from the truth that it will work, or is maybe just not seeing the truth (or at least his view of the truth).
    He is determined to show her it can work, and feels he can if she would just try.
    Last 7 lines suggest it ended because he was making it too serious. He loves her, but should of taken things slower because she doesn't seem to of been/be into him as much. And at the end he asks to try again, and tells her how he feels.
    OK, its only a song, but there's a whole story and I need to know what she said! Considering he screwed it up last time because he was taking things too fast, I don't think telling her he needs her love is going to help. A sad but universal story.
