[Intro]
If this room was burning
I wouldn't even notice
'Cause you've been taking up my mind
With your, little white lies, little white lies

[Verse 1]
You say it's getting late, it's getting late
And you don't know if you can stay, if...

    The whole song is about sex. And the girl trying to avoid it. And how it's driving the guy mad with her constantly making up excuses to why they can't do it, like "You say, it's getting late." When it's late, stuff goes down.
    "You don't tell the truth, no you like playing games." He's basically calling her a tease here.
    "Your hands touching me, they're touching me."
    "Lips getting so attached, they're so attached." Both of these lines are about foreplay.

    "You say you're a good girl, but I know you would girl." I mean c'mon, this is so obvious. The girl makes up another excuse saying she's a good girl but in all reality he knows that she would do it with him.

    "Now you wanna make some rules. Now cool- then we'll watch them break tonight." The girl has already drawn a line and told him we're not going past foreplay or kissing or whatever, she made "rules" and he's saying that they're going break them tonight.

    "I know what you want and I've been waiting so long." He knows that she wants to have sex secretly and he's been waiting so long for her to say yes.

    "I know you want it, I know you feel it to. Let's stop pretending that you don't know and I don't know just what we came to do." He knows she wants to do it, he knows she feels the chemistry. And he wants her to stop pretending that she came there NOT to have sex.

    This song perpetuates rape culture and reinforces the passive female sexuality as the object of male domination. Through framing the woman's continued refusal as 'little white lies', the song eroticises a lack of consent The boys also pledge to ‘break’ the ‘rules’ that their ‘good girl’ love interest has established. The final verse again negates the agency and validity of the woman's rejection, stating that he 'knows what we came to do', suggesting that if a man thinks a woman wants sex, it is impossible for him to be rejected. Consent is sexy - date rape is not!

    I think it's about sex that's just it.

    Guy is in love with this girl, she keeps telling him lies to preoccupy his mind. He keeps telling her what he is going to do and she keeps setting rules. In the song zany sings: you want to make some rules now, cool, then we will watch them break tonight

    Here, the guy is in love with a girl who is playing games with the guy. She's telling lies to the guy, these lies preoccupy the guy's mind. She's setting rules, but the guy is sure they'll see the rules break that night. Young Love is explicit in this song.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    This guy is in love with a girl, but she keeps on lying to him. He keeps on telling her what he wants do with her, and does it, but then she lies again. Still he lets her in.

    Some lyrics are: "I know you want it, and I, know you feel it too. Let's stop pretending, that you don't know, what I know, what we came to do."

    It's pretty obvious there that girl is denying is denying some of her feelings for the guy.
