Keys cut, three for the price of one
Nothing's free but guaranteed for a lifetime's use
I've changed the locks
And you can't have one
You, you know the other two

The brakes have worn so thin that you could hear
I hear them screeching through the door from our driveway
Hey, love, look into your glove box heart
What is there for me inside? This love is tired
I've changed the locks
Have I misplaced you?
Have we lost our minds?
Will this never end?
It could depend on your take

You, me, we used to be on fire
If keys are all that stand between
Can I throw in the ring?
No gasoline
Just fuck me kitten
You are wild and I'm in your possession
Nothing's free so, fuck me, kitten

I'm in your possession
So, fuck me, kitten

    General Commenti think its about these two people who are broken up at some point but are still attracted to each other and using each other physically.
    "Hey love, look into your glovebox heart.
    What is there for me inside? This love is tired.
    I've changed the locks. Have I misplaced you?"
    Its like things are getting more complicated and hes tired of making an effort and maybe not feeling as strongly anymore. So its just physical for him.

    General CommentThe Rolling Stones wanted to put a song about Groupies on Exile On Main Street (I think) called Starfucker but the record company said no so they renamed it Starstarrer (Star being a symbol for an expletive deleted). The "star" in "Star Me Kitten" is a reference to that and does indeed mean "Fuck Me Kitten"

    General Commenti think its a relationship that is on is last thread, that thread being sex. I think the two members of the relationship only connect physically. Stipe sings "This love is tired" Obviously they were once in love, but it has faded. the "fuck me kitten" suggests that there is still sexual connection. good song.

    General CommentAmazing song.
    I was also raised on my dad's REM collection.
    And never knew the words, but loved it anyway.
    One of my earliest memories is when i was about 2, I was in my living room in Toronto dancing with my Dad and my Uncle Mark to REM and my Uncle Mark had bought me a toy tambourine and was helping me tap it to the songs.
    REM always makes me remember this, so I love them.
    This song reminds me very much of the relationship I'm in at this moment, thats why I'm posting about it.

    He feels that he's got everything he can out of the relationship, so he doesn't care anymore.
    She can do what she wants, but he isn't going to pretend to be in love anymore.

    General CommentThis song is so great, I always felt like it was from a male point of view but I think it isn't gender specific. I think it's about a relationship that used to be great but somewhere down the line they fell out of love and all that was left was sex.
