If I Never See Your Face Again Lyrics

Now as the summer fades
I let you slip away
You say I'm not your type
But I can make you sway

It makes you burn to learn
You're not the only one
I'd let you be if you
Put down your blazing gun

[Chorus:]
Now you've gone somewhere...

    I think this song is about a typical one-night stand, except the two accidentally fall in love, particularly the male half. In the song, variations of "it makes me burn to learn I'm not the only one" are repeated, making it obvious that this isn't meaningless. Also, the chorus line of "you keep me coming back for more" suggests that the couple has already gone past just a one-night stand.

    She denies her love for him, but he made her get really into it when they were together. He tells her it makes you burn to learn that you're not the only one and she tells him it makes him burn to learn that I'm with another man. He basically tells her he's probably not half the man he is in bed. They keep lashing out at each other, throwing low blows. He starts to look for her because he craves more. Each time he comes back, he feels a little better than the last time. It's not love because if he never sees her again, he doesn't mind. They got further in the relationship than they both thought they would. It sounds like an addiction to her. She might be a prostitute.

    i think the song is about a man and a woman who have a one night stand together and thought it wasn't going to lead anywhere but in the end they have some type of feeling that could be between lust and love but it was a good night to where if they don't see each other again it wouldn't be a bad thing.

    I think the girl's a hooker, they had a one night stand, but in the end, they ended up getting too involved, but it's not like they'll miss each other if they see each other again, because she was just a hooker, haha!

    I think this song is about a man and woman who think they are in love but face complications.
