Please wrap your drunken arms around me
And I'll let you call me yours tonight
Cause slightly broken's just what I need
And if you give me what I want
Then I'll give you what you like


Please tell me I'm your one and only
Or lie and say at least tonight
I've got a brand new cure for lonely
And if you give me what I want
Then I'll give you what you like


When you turn off the lights
I get stars in my eyes
Is this love?
Maybe someday
So don't turn on the lights
I'll give you what you like


Emotions aren't that hard to borrow
When love's a word you've never learned
And in a room of empty bottles
If you don't give me what I want
Then you'll get what you deserve


When you turn off the lights
I get stars in my eyes
Is this love?
Maybe someday
I've got the scene in my head
I'm not sure how it ends
Is it love?
Maybe one day
So don't turn on the lights
I'll give you what you like

I'll give you what you like
I'll give you one last chance to hold me
If you give me one last cigarette
By now it's early in the morning
Now that I gave you what you want
All I want is to forget


When you turn off the lights
I get stars in my eyes
Is this love?
Maybe someday
I've got the scene in my head
I'm not sure how it ends
Is it love?
Maybe one day
So don't turn on the lights
I'll give you what you like

    I think this song is about Avril's love or passion for someone very close to her like her husband since clearly this song is about loving someone as an adult...well that's what I think. It's about needing only that one person as the center of your world and no light needs to shine on them for them to be special or a star to you. I think that Avril was maybe writing about a personal experience from her older age as she normally does a good job documenting difficult or touchy topics. She makes this song really beautiful although it might have some more sentimental meaning to her or other adults in general since I think this song is about true love and passion that's very simplified down to the bear minimum. It's like when you find that one person and you guys are like at the peak of your love.
