"The Garden Rules" as written by and Gary Lightbody Garret Jacknife Lee....
There's the river there's your house and there's the church
And there's us years ago
Deep in your garden where the nettle met the rose
Is where we'd hide ourselves
Yes we were just kids, but you couldn't tell us that
These are the garden rules, that's what you always said

Oh, you'll never know, how much I love you so
Oh, you will never know, how much I love you

You would call the garden rules out like commands
And we would all obey
But you'd stifle giddy laughter as you spoke
And puncture the pretend
Then we would chase our tails, until the sun forgot to shine
And our parents called our names, 'til just you and I were left

Oh, you'll never know, how much I love you so
Oh, you will never know, how much I love you

From your house we walk the river
To the church by the silent fields
Amongst the lavender and headstones
And the larks in our Sunday clothes
Your father calls to you as he's looking at his watch
You leave me with a kiss on my quickly heating cheek

Oh, you'll never know, how much I love you so
Oh, you will never know, how much I love you
Oh, you'll never know, how much I love you so
Oh, you will never know, how much I love you
Oh, you'll never know, how much I love you so
Oh, you will never know, how much I love you
Oh, you'll never know, how much I love you so
Oh, you will never know, how much I love you

    That is obviously a metaphor for sex.
