How do you cool your lips
After a summer's kiss
How do you rid the sweat
After the body bliss
How do you turn your eyes
From the romantic glare
How do you block the sound
Of a voice you'd know anywhere

Oh, I really should have known
By the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes
Casual good-byes
By the chill in your embrace
The expression on your face
That told me
Maybe you might have some advice to give
On how to be

How do you numb your skin
After the warmest touch
How do you slow your blood
After the body rush
How do you free your soul
After you've found a friend
How do you teach your heart
It's a crime to fall in love again

Oh, you probably won't remember me
It's probably ancient history
I'm one of the chosen few
Who went ahead and fell for you
I'm out of vogue, I'm out of touch
I fell too fast, I feel too much
I thought that you might have
Some advice to give on how to be

    I really don't know how to say the meaning.. But everytime i heard this song everything goes back to me the feeling of being left by someone you really love.

    Someone who doesnt care for one's feelings. That person is in it for themselves and not others. They put on a front and are not real. No feelings at all, just dull.

    It's a story of a girl who fell too much to a wrong guy.. She wanted to know how to be insensitive so that she wont fell in love again and to be insensitive so that she wont feel the hurt of being left behind..
