on Amazon Music

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off of you [x6]

And so it is
Just like you said it...

    This song is about lusting after someone.

    As if in a crowded room. You watch them from a distance, dreaming up conversation in your mind to the point of obsessing about them all evening. You leave the room, head home, maybe, and you are still thinking about them.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    It's my opinion that this song is about obsession. The singer does not actually love the person he is singing to, he just kinda can't stop looking at her (example: "I can't take my eyes off of you" repeated over and over). She is not the love of his life and he knows that it's the same for her (example: No love, no glory. No hero in her sky).

    In fact, he even states that he loaths the object of his infatuation (example: "Did I say that I loathe you?"). I really don't think that line was meant as an apology. It's said in a more "Did you know...?" way.

    The singer begrudgingly admits he is obsessed with this person, not because he loves her, but because it almost can't take his eyes off her. As the last line states ("'Til I find somebody new") he'll move on eventually, if he can find someone better.
