I was slicing up an avocado
When you came up behind me
With your silent brand new sneakers
Your reflection I did not see

It was the hottest day in august
And we were heading for the sea
For a second my mind started drifted

You put your arms around me
You put your arms around me

Blood spraying on the kitchen sink
"What's this?" I have time to think
I see the tip of my index finger
My mind is slowly creating a link

From your mouth speaks your lovely voice
The softest words ever spoken
"What's broken can always be fixed
What's fixed will always be broken"

You put your arms around me
You put your arms around me
You put your arms around me
You put your arms around

I must have past out on the porch
Dreamt I was carried in a kangaroo's pouch
When I wake up I'm in the waiting room
On a dirty hospital couch

My hand iswrapped in toilet paper
And my body is wrapped in debris
You're sitting next to me reading the paper
I put your arm around me

    I don't think this song is quite metaphorical as it is just very straight forward. It seems to be telling how no matter what situation your in, your partners love is always there, putting their arms around you.
