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...

    A man is head over heels for a girl. He does not know if his love interest loves him back.

    I think that this is a very cute song about a guy that is crazy over a girl and has a major crush on her and he fantasizes about her loving him too but doesn't want to tell her he likes her in fear that she doesn't like him back and that his dreams will be crushed and his chances of being with her completely thrown out of the window.

    Having been in a similar situation, i think it's about a guy and a girl who broke up, the girl is pretty popular amongst the men and gets what she wants form them, so why should she have to commit to some guy? But the guy is left wishing and wanting her, she is mysterious and has aces up her sleeves, she is ahead of them game and denies him. He continues to try and win her over for himself again, he misses the nights when they would whisper sweet nothings into each others eyes, but "those nights were mainly made for saying things that you can't say tomorrow day" they were empty promises, she left him anyways, even though she said it was forever. He wants her back, but she doesn't need to commit, she can have anyone she wants. The man is left "do i wanna know if the feeling flows both ways". HE doesn't know if he really wants to know what she thinks of him. She is in control, and he is a sad man in love. I was in a relationship where i was the girl in the story, it's sad and i hate to say it, but finally my boy left and now i am the empty one....here are the lyrics so you can compare the lines to what i said i think you'll find that it lines up pretty well:

    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?

    it means a nerdy virgin and he keeps on asking himself if he wants to know how sex feels its really simple. just watch the video its basically a nerdy virgin who does not know if he wants to lose his virginity.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    A person is stuck in loving someone and they wonder if that person feels the same they're scared that the person doesn't so they ask themselfes if they really want an answer to thenthat question wether the person loves them or not
