Feb 14 Lyrics
On February fourteen
She says that I'll do great
That's not what's scaring me
I get up on my feet
Give her one last hug
They're all waiting for me
I wish that was enough
I got your letter
Hope you feel...

I'm interpreting this as how he is an aromantic, wanting to feel and reciprocate the romantic love of others but he can't and ended up breaking this girl's heart..

I actually read this as a love song to his mum. He was going out on tour (especially going to the U.S. for the first time [I saw him in Charlotte, NC. He was brilliant!]). I feel like the woman he is talking to is his Mum as he's about to be away from her for an extended period of time. (he's a very young man away from home for the first time!) The lyrics: "I got your letter
Hope you feel better than I do,
I miss you
She said she's here if I ever need someone to talk to,
But all I ever wanna talk about is you.
Think I zoned out again,
But I still tried my best.
They said it's my best show
I hope you were impressed."
Knowing what I do about Robbie, I feel like this is a love letter to his Mum.

I think this song is about heart break on Valentine’s Day.
She rubs your back
Saying you’ll do just fine without he
But at that moment that’s not what we think of. “That’s not what’s scaring me”
Getting up on your feet
To give her one last hug
“They’re all waiting for me, I wish that was enough”
Meaning all the fans of Cavetown are waiting and he wishes it was enough but he misses who knew him best.
Think I zoned out again
My best show?
Hope you were impressed...?
Meaning he’s playing gigs now. Touring around. But he feels alone and numb and empty. Blacking out before a show because nothing feels real or perminant anymore
The bridge is a flashback
Saying he’s just trying to buy those few seconds as she was walking out.
She turns around
And says happy Valentine’s Day.
And final crack in his stability. Completely breaking himself in that moment.
Feeling my body falling away, I’ll see you again someday
Implies (I believe at least) either suicide and hoping to see her again someday no longer able to bear the pain
Possibly that feeling of falling away is a drug trip of sorts. Numbing yourself with alchohol and drugs hoping one day she would come back through the door. Even though she wont

I'm pretty sure it's about him not wanting to go on tour because he's gonna be homesick and miss his friends (and we all know how much Robbie loves his friends) but I have no clue
