"Never Gonna Fall In Love Again" as written by and Lightbody/mcclelland/quinn....
Something snapped me out of a dream that I was having
I'd fall down an elevator shaft but now I'm back again
Tidying up after the fight we had
Happy with yourself?

Well, you've never looked so satisfied
Teasing me with stuff like a spoiled little brother
You finished yet?

Have you got what you really want?

    General CommentThe whole relationship was a nice dream, and around the bend was an elevator he stepped into, which that turned out to be missing, and he fell down the shaft. Probably was cheated on or the chick turned out to have some horrible personality lurking under the facade.

    Now he's back and realizes what a sham it'd been, and the girl is playing it off like her life is wonderful and she's got everything...and is rubbing it in his face.

    He wonders though, if she's got to rub it in his face, is she really happy at all? Does she -really- have what she wants? Or is she only trying to make herself feel better about the fact she's actually empty inside?

    I love the way he uses the spoiled little brother line to describe it, because child siblings are probably the most extreme case of people who like to tease with what they have when someone else doesn't have it. The thing is, most of the time, kids don't even enjoy what they're teasing people with all that much, and the teasing is usually the most fun they get out of whatever it is. Such a clever way to put it.

    General CommentI don't think so, I think it's after they've broken up, and he doesn't want to go through all of that gaian, hence the "Never gonna fall in love again"

    General CommentWhy is he singing to a someone acting like a spoilt little brother? Is he singing to a guy? Is he gay? I only ask because this is the second song I've heard that sounds like he's singing to a dude.
