February skies
You cause the resurrection of my butterflies
We got dressed up in disguise
And I tried my best but I just can't recognize you

Well, you, you've got no excuse
Is this making you happy?
Is this making you happy?
Cause it's true, you're all I have to lose
So if it's making you happy,
Then it's making me happy too

Go do what you like
Cause you always find a way to be satisfied
But when all that glory dies
You can find me trapped behind your tired eyes

Yeah, you, you've got no excuse
This is making you happy
This is making you happy
And it's true, you're all I have to lose
So if it's making you happy,
It must be making me happy too

Well, I don't know who you are
Yeah, I don't know who you are
Well, I don't know who you are
Yeah, I don't know who you are, oh no

Well, I don't care who you are
Wanna fall in love, wanna fall apart
Yeah don't care who you are
Wanna fall in love, wanna fall apart

Well, I don't care who we are,
Wanna fall in love till we fall apart
Yeah I don't care who we are,
Wanna fall in love till we fall apart

    My OpinionHmm, the album came out in 2011, and yet no comments. Guess I'll be the first on this website for this song c: Before I analyze, I hope you guys love this song as much as I do, and for as long as I have (and continuing). Please take this with a grain of salt, everything I say here is just my (first) opinion probably badly explained.

    To me, this song sounds like a relationship that possibly started out with love, but turned out to be only for show.
    "February skies
    You cause the resurrection of my butterflies
    We got dressed up in disguise
    And I tried my best but I just can't recognize you

    Well, you, you've got no excuse
    Is this making you happy?
    Is this making you happy?
    Cause it's true, you're all I have to lose
    So if it's making you happy,
    Then it's making me happy too"

    In the beginning, it's just the girl singing. In this part, I always thought of a scenario where the girl has a crush on a popular, flirty guy at school. It's February and the Valentine's Day dance is coming up (we had one at our high school every year), and she imagines what it'd be like if he took her to the dance, which makes her feel all lovey-dovey (butterflies in your stomach). However, she feels like she has a one in a million chance that he would ask her of all girls, so she has her hopes up. Turns out, he asks her, and she gets all lovey-dovey again.
    In the time leading up to the dance, when they're getting to know each other better, she tries to be the kind of person she believes he and his friends would like--she uncomfortably tries to be someone she's not. If he's happy, then she should be too--she thinks this as a way to measure how well she's been doing.
    She realizes that he's nothing like what she imagined him to be, and she's suddenly aware that he might have chosen her for the way that she acts and looks clinging to his arm. She believes that her happiness isn't even a thought that goes through his mind and that he's really only in it for himself. Now she's wondering why she's going with this guy, whoever this guy really is, and sees that she's better off without him.

    "Go do what you like
    Cause you always find a way to be satisfied
    But when all that glory dies
    You can find me trapped behind your tired eyes"

    In this next section of lyrics, the guy starts singing with her in the background. They're both telling each other to do whatever it is they want, neither of them care to have a say in what the other person does since it'd make them both happier that way anyway (rather than one person telling the other person to do something and that choice ends up being not very satisfying). They're no longer interested in each other (trapped behind your tired eyes = tired of seeing each other), they're just with each other for the dance.

    "Yeah, you, you've got no excuse
    This is making you happy
    This is making you happy
    And it's true, you're all I have to lose
    So if it's making you happy,
    It must be making me happy too"

    Here we have both the girl and the guy singing a slightly different version of the chorus. Let's back it up a little for the guy's point of view: the boy may have picked the girl because he might have known that she wanted to go to the dance with him, so he wanted to be nice and give her a chance. She's not who he thought she would be (maybe he's not that funny, but she's giggling so he could feel funny; or maybe she's not as needy, but she's acting that way just so he can feel needed, etc--ie. she's just pretending to be someone she's not). He could have asked any other girl to the dance, but if it makes her happy that she got that one in a million chance, he should be happy that he enabled that in her--but he's not. He sees it more as she's taking him for granted, and he's ok with letting her go--they're both ok with dropping this fake relationship.

    "Well, I don't know who you are
    Yeah, I don't know who you are
    Well, I don't know who you are
    Yeah, I don't know who you are, oh no"

    Only the guy is singing this part, and he's admitting he has no idea who this girl is that he's taking to the dance, and maybe he's regretting it.

    "Well, I don't care who you are
    Wanna fall in love, wanna fall apart
    Yeah I don't care who you are
    Wanna fall in love, wanna fall apart

    Well, I don't care who we are,
    Wanna fall in love till we fall apart
    Yeah I don't care who we are,
    Wanna fall in love till we fall apart"

    They both sing a layered up version of these parts, and they're both admitting that, yeah, this was a train wreck of a hookup for some stupid dance. She's saying that she wanted to fall in love with a guy that she had a low chance with, and now that she's with him she wants the relationship to end and get this dance over with. If you listen carefully, the guy is saying he doesn't know who they are, saying that they were fake to each other the entire time.

    My second opinion is similar to the first, except applied to a longer relationship that started graying from what used to be strong and loving. Two people who once loved each other so dearingly are now tired of each other and find more satisfaction in other things. The only time something exciting happens is in February when the entire month is themed with love, and everyone is focused on that for the first 14 days. They start abusing each other with the fact that their relationship is failing to the point that they no longer know each other/remember what the other person used to be like.
    When relationships end this way, it's always kind of sad to look back on it. Just know that time is the best healer when it comes to breakups.
