Burning House Lyrics
You were stuck inside, I couldn't get you out
I laid beside you and pulled you close
And the two of us went up in smoke
Love isn't all that it seems I did you wrong
I'll stay here with you until this...

She will always love him but he is poison. She feels guilty for leaving him but if she stays with him it will kill her so she can only be with him is in her dreams but she loves him so much she goes back to him and they both die...

It’s about love & not being able to let go or completely move on.
“You were stuck inside & I couldn’t get you out”
He is a constant thought & burning memory in her brain, unable to forget him.
“I laid beside you & pulled you close
And the two of us went up in smoke”
In her dreams she lives out a fantasy of their love & what could have been. The up in smoke can refer to the mystery of what she fantasizes it to be & lost. The burning house is her burning thoughts of the unknown & her memories
“Love isn’t all that it seem”
Sometimes we are unable to see things from inside or within clearly. Reflecting back from outside can bring clarity.
Maybe she realizes her faults & is better able to see them now. So she keeps the good burning memories alive in her dream.
Her sleepwalking is her thinking what she could have done or changed to fix it. Struggling with her past & her part in what happened. What could she have done to prevent it ending. So she keeps the burning heartache close. All she can do now is dream how good it was or seemed.
Seeing him @ a party could mean how easy It still feels right, the connection is still the same but what can the future hold. Could they get past what tore them apart. So she tells herself people don’t change, but is that really true or maybe time changes people. So wishing to go back in time seems her only option. Maybe she/he or they could rewrite it... for she still believes she is the one for him.
So she continues on in this burning house of thoughts & memories of what could have been until her dreams of him are gone...wondering.

It's a song about domestic violence. He's the abuser and she can't let him go. She's sleep walking and is willing to risk it all to keep him even when she knows there isn't a loving relationship.

She is in love with someone, but she can't have him because he sheated on her (I could take you back but people don't change.) She wants to be with him again, but she is afraid of him betraying her again. So she can dream of him an' all, but she can't really have him.
Just as I cannot tell my crush I like him, but I can dream of him.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

It's about a woman who is in love with the idea of what this man could be to her. She obviously has loved him for a long time but has not been honest with him about all the doubts in her mind that their relationship could ever work. He is content with her and only knows the woman she has pretended to be. She has been very close to overcoming her fears because she gets caught up in the moments that seem so so wonderful to her but the doubts and fears always come to
haunt her when she is alone. She hates to end it but after many times of trying she realizes its a lost cause and she leaves him abruptly only to miss the closeness she so enjoyed. All she has now is the guilt she must bear for letting things go so far. And of course the memory of how she felt in his arms.

It's about a woman trying to get over a relationship that didn't work. She loved him but she couldn't be what he needed her to be. She is aware that they were doomed to fail but she can't get him out of her head and the only way she can be close to him now is in her dreams.
