"Do I Wanna Know?" as written by and Alex Turner....
Have you got color in your cheeks'
Do you ever get the feeling that you can't shift the tide
That sticks around like something's in your teeth
And some aces up your sleeve
I had no idea that you're in deep
I dreamt about you near me every night this week
How many secrets can you keep'
'Cause there's this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow
When I play it on repeat
Until I fall asleep
Spilling drinks on my settee

(Do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways
(Sad to see you go)
Was sorta hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying
things that you can't say tomorrow day

Crawlin' back to you.

Ever thought of calling when you've had a few?
'Cause I always do
Maybe I'm too busy being yours to fall for somebody new
Now I've thought it through

Crawling back to you

So have you got the guts?
Been wondering if your heart's still open and
if so I wanna know what time it shuts
Simmer down and pucker up
I'm sorry to interrupt it's just I'm constantly
on the cusp of trying to kiss you
I don't know if you feel the same as I do
But we could be together, if you wanted to

(Do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways
(Sad to see you go)
Was sorta hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying
things that you can't say tomorrow day

Crawling back to you

Ever thought of calling when you've had a few? (calling when you've had a few)
'Cause I always do ('cause I always do)
Maybe I'm too busy being yours to fall for somebody new
Now I've thought it through

Crawling back to you, (do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways
(Sad to see you go)
Was sorta hoping that you'd stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made for saying
things that you can't say tomorrow day

(Do I wanna know?)
Too busy being yours to fall
(Sad to see you go)
Ever thought of calling darling?
(Do I wanna know)
Do you want me crawling back to you?

    My InterpretationI REALLY love this song. This is one of those songs that everybody can inerpret in their own way. I think it's about 2 people who are in love and one of them (let's say the girl) doesn't want to admit her feelings and the boy tries to tempt her.

    Have you got colour in your cheeks?
    Do you ever get the fear that you can't shift the type that
    sticks around like summat in your teeth?
    Are there some aces up your sleeve?
    Have you no idea that you're in deep?
    I dreamt about you nearly every night this week
    How many secrets can you keep?
    Cause there's this tune I found that makes me think of you
    somehow and I play it on repeat
    Until I fall asleep
    Spilling drinks on my settee
    * He's telling her that he alredy knows that she's in love with him and he's trying to convince her with "pretty words" (even in a very lustful way).

    Do I wanna know
    if this feeling flows both ways?
    Sad to see you go
    Was sorta hoping that you'd stay
    Baby we both know
    That the nights were mainly made for saying things that
    you can't say tomorrow day.
    * But she has hidden her feelings so much that he isn't sure if what she feels is real so he doesn't know if he wants to know the answer to all of his questions anymore.

    Crawlin' back to you
    Ever thought of calling when you've had a few
    Cos I always do
    Maybe I'm too busy being yours to fall for somebody new
    Now I've thought it through
    Crawlin' back to you
    *He's complaining because she never does anything to show her feelings and he's asking if what she wants is to watch him fall for her when maybe she isn't really interested.

    So have you got the guts?
    Been wondering if your hearts still open
    And if so I wanna know what time it shuts
    Simmer down and pucker up
    I'm sorry to interrupt
    It's just I'm constantly on the cusp
    Of trying to kiss you
    I don't know if you feel the same as I do
    But we could be together if you wanted to
    *He's being impudent with her and asking if she is brave enoungh to tell the truth about her feelings. He still tempting her.

    And the rest repeats. This song is very very or maybe too sexy. And that's why I like it, cause it's sexy but it isn't dirty at any time like most of the songs in this times. That's maybe why it's so horny, because the sex nowadays is a very common thing in the music world but this song makes it look like something different.
