"Fireside" as written by and Alex Turner....
I can't explain but I want to try
There's this image of you and I
And it goes dancing by in the morning and in the night time

There's all these secrets that I can't keep
Like in my heart there's that hotel suite and you lived there so long,
It's kinda strange now you're gone

I'm not sure if I should show you what I've found
Has it gone for good?
Or is it coming back around?
Isn't it hard to make up your mind?
When you're losing and your fuse is fireside

There's all those places we used to go
And I suspect you already know
But that place on memory lane you liked still looks the same
But something about it's changed

I'm not sure if I should show you what I've found
Has it gone for good?
Or is it coming back around?
Isn't it hard to make up your mind?
When you're losing and your fuse is fireside

And I thought I was yours forever
Maybe I was mistaken but I just cannot manage to make it through the day
Without thinking of you lately

I'm not sure if I should show you what I've found
Has it gone for good?
Or is it coming back around?
Isn't it hard to make up your mind?
When you're losing and your fuse is fireside

    General CommentAgree this could be the best song on the album. surprised there's not more comments.

    my interpretation is that this song is about a past big relationship, in my opinion its the same girl he broke up with in 505. (Alex's hotel number in ny)

    first verse - pretty obvious. hes thinking about her a lot recently.

    second verse - the secrets he cant keep is him thinking about her lately. he wants to tell her somehow.
    she used to stay with him in his hotel room all the time, now she's never there.

    chorus - I'm not sure if I should show you what I've found - he's found out he still has strong feelings for her after all this time, and doesn't know whether to tell her or not.

    Has it gone for good? Or is it coming back around? - does the relationship have another chance or not..

    Isn't it hard to make up your mind? - its hard for him to know whether to try again. clearly problems in the relationship before. but is it worth fighting for.

    When you're losing and your fuse is fireside

    third verse - the places they used to go are still the same, but the 2 people have changed since the split. or he feels differently about the places they used to go together, now they are separated.

    fourth verse - And I thought I was yours forever - clearly someone important to him, big relationship. thought they would be together forever.

    Maybe I was mistaken but I just cannot manage to make it through the day
    Without thinking of you lately - maybe he was wrong thinking she was the one, but he cant stop thinking about her lately, so maybe she is the one.

    I love this song. and I want to believe that its about Alexa Cheung
