A pussyfooting setting sun
Make a wish that weighs a ton
There are no handles for you to hold
And no understanding where it goes

Jealously in Technicolor
Fear by name, love by numbers
Street lamp amber, wanderlust
Hide her in a blunderbus

She looks as if she's blowing at kiss at me
And suddenly the sky is a scissor
Sitting on the floor with a tambourine
Crushing up a bundle of love
Don't take it so personally
You're not the only one
That time has got it in for honey
That's where you're wrong

All the old flames fastened on
Make a wish that weighs a ton
There are no handles that you can hold
And no understanding where it goes

She looks as if she's blowing a kiss at me
And suddenly the sky is a scissor
Sitting on the floor with a tambourine
Crushing up a bundle of love
Don't take it so personally
You're not the only one,
That time has got it in for honey

That's where you're wrong
That's where you're wrong
That's where you're wrong

    My InterpretationWell, i think it's like this.
    There is this girl who is 'man-eater' or whatever is the expression for seducing a lot of guys and playing with them.

    "There are no handles for you to hold
    And no understanding where it goes."

    - He doesn't know what is actually going on. She is probably playing with him and he doesn't know what is going to happen and where is everything going.

    "Jealousy in technicolor
    Fear by name, love by numbers"
    - He's obviously jealous of other guys she's also playing with. She's feared and loved by a lot of guys at the same time.

    "She looks as if she's blowing a kiss at me
    And suddenly the skies are sizzling
    Sitting on the floor with a tambourine
    Crushing up a bundle of love"
    - You see? She's toying with him, sending kisses and he's all crazy about her and sitting on a floor, playing songs for her, thinking about her and everything.

    "Don't take it so personally
    You're not the only one
    That time's got it in for honey
    That's where you're wrong"
    - And that part when he says he's not the only one and he shouldn't take it so personally and he's wrong because he takes it so personally. He's actually talking to himself that he's wrong about that.

    "All the old flames fastened on
    Make a wish that weighs a tonne"
    - All the old flames means that he's having that feelings for her for a long time and he can't get rid of them, and the next line says that he has only one wish, to be with her, and that wish is so strong (heavy).
