Sarah Harmer: Basement Apartment Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Basement Apartment Lyrics
In a basement apt. With one of your friends
And the tap drips all night
Water torture in the sink
The furnace is burning
But it's still cold i think
I can smell the bleach
That they use in the hall

This song makes me think of the struggles of being a young adult, experiencing freedom and adult relationships for the first time.
The line 'there's holes in all the bottles and my lungs hurt' is a reference to smoking hashish by doing 'bottle tokes', and the hurting lungs also refers back to previous mentions in the song to breathing.
