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

(chorus)



Oh I really should have known

By the time you drove me home

By the vagueness in your eyes

Your 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 insensitive



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 time

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 insensitive



(chorus)

    i love this song, it means being numb but having feelings at the same time.. because you are able to show deep emotions but at thye same time it does't mean anything to you, thus making you insensitive

    because of pain, we surely want to be numb and insensitive so that we can't feel the pain any longer. love truly hurts!
