I used to be lunatic from the gracious days
I used to be woebegone and so restless nights
My aching heart would bleed for you to see
Oh but now...
(I don't find myself bouncing home whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word

(The lover speaks about the monsters)

I used to have demons in my room at night
Desire, despair, desire... Sooo many monsters!
Oh but now...
(I don't find myself bouncing home whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me in silence
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word

(They were being really crazy
They were on the come.
And you know what mummy?
Everybody was being really crazy.
Uh huh. The monsters are crazy.
There are monsters outside.)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me in silence
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word
Outside the word

    It is a allegorical tale. The things that used to frighten you as a child no longer do so. But, with losing the fear of monsters, you also lose that "child-like" love of things. The reality of growing older means shedding both your fears and your innocence.
    Some may call this becoming jaded or cynical. I call it a healthy maturuity. Ideally, we gain wisdom and understanding, leaving behind the childhood dreams and flights of fancy for a more mature one, much closer to reality. But, we can acknowledge what those things meant to us.
