I might be anyone
A lone fool out in the sun
Your heartbeat of solid gold
I love you, you'll never know

When the daylight comes you feel so cold,
You know
I'm too afraid of my heart to let you go

Waiting for the fire to light
Feeling like we could do right
Be the one that makes tonight
'Cause freedom is a lonely road
We're under control

We're under control

I might be anyone
A lone fool out in the sun
Your heartbeat of solid gold
I love you, you'll never know

When the daylight comes you feel so cold,
You know
I'm too afraid of my heart to let you go

Waiting for the fire to light
Feeling like we could do right
Be the one that makes tonight
'Cause freedom is a lonely road
We're under control

Waiting for the fire to light
Feeling like we could do right
Be the one that makes tonight
'Cause freedom is a lonely road
We're under control

We're under control

    It's about a guy who loves a girl but he can't express it. He chooses freedom over her - the freedom to be single but it's a lonely road. He wants her but he's just not ready yet - something's stopping him. And she can feel how he's pushing her away - that's why she feels cold in the daylight, that's when he goes all cold. He's waiting for something to make him go for it, he's waiting for the fire to light to he can express his love. Because as it is, she'll never understand how much he loves her, he can't show it.

    The guy is in love so he's under control (of his own heart). So the ones that decide to be alone are very few so it is a lonely road. The girl loves him too because he says "We're under control and both are feeling like they could do right. Moreover she is cold in the morning so probably she is waiting for him but he loves her so much or if you want to think that due to his heart control he is very worried because he can't loose her, he has to make it right "I'm too afraid of mine own heart to let you go". Be the first to make tonight means to make the first step so the they can express how they feel. Finally waiting to the fire to light, I assume that he is waiting for a party (cigarettes and fire) to see her again.

    Under Control - Under the spell of music, control of Humans. Fight for freedom will be difficult and not many people are aware or even know they are spell bound by music. So freedom would be a lonely road.
    Good song tho. Lots of artist drop hints of the bigger plan of the New World Order. Lots about the sky, and nuclear bombs. Food for thought. Could be wrong tho.
