Neon Trees – Sleeping With A Friend lyrics

All my friends
They're different people
Anxious like the Ocean in the storm
When we go out
Yeah, we're electric
Coursin' through our bodies til we're warm

And why mess up a good thing baby?
It's a risk to even fall in love
So when you give that look to me
I better look back carefully
Cuz this is trouble
Yeah, this is trouble

I said, ooh ooh
You got me in the mood mood
I'm scared but if my heart's gonna break before the night will end
I said, ooh ooh
We're in danger
Sleeping with a friend

All my friends
Stay up past midnight
Looking for the thing to fill the void
I don't go out
Much like I used to
Something about the strangers and the noise

And why leave when I got you baby
It's a risk but babe, I need the thrill
I never said you'd be easy
But if it was all up to me
I'd be no trouble
Yeah, we're in trouble

I said, ooh ooh
You got me in the mood mood
I'm scared but if my heart's gonna break before the night will end
I said, ooh ooh
We're in danger
Sleeping with a friend

We are both young
Hot blooded people
We don't wanna die alone
To become one
It could be lethal
Sleeping with a friend

All my friends
All my friends
All my friends
All my friends

Oh I said, ooh ooh
You got me in the mood mood
I'm scared but if my heart's gonna break before the night will end
I said, ooh ooh
We're in danger
Sleeping with a friend

(All my friends)
Sleeping with a friend
(All my friends)

If my heart's gonna break before the night will end
I said, ooh ooh
We're in danger
Sleeping with a friend

    Well, to me, the song meaning is much different than the actual one.

    It's about a girl, who has her eyes set on a boy, but he doesn't know about it. He thinks that she is just either eccentric or insane, seeing how she's not very good with others and is a pessimistic person. She's smitten, but only one of her friends knows it. Her friends, who are loud, very loud people, often draw attention, and not in a good way. She wants to get his attention in a good way, but knows that her heart's going to break in the end because she and the boy wouldn't get along well, in her opinion.

    The boy is oblivious, has a good life, contrasting to her pessimistic one, and is very optimistic. He's happy, although he doesn't know she isn't, as she hides it very well. Finally, he realizes that she likes him, and wants to go find her, but doesn't. His head is telling him to ask her friends, hence the repeated, "All my friends."

    When he finally does find her, she's thinking in a pessimistic manner that she'll never get married, have children, yes, but she wouldn't have a husband, even though she's wishing for at least a boyfriend to make her feel wanted, but she hides these feelings really deep down. The boy doesn't know what to do, but he knows he wants to 'fill her void', as she has been looking for that option for a long time.

    He needs the thrill of something unexpected and new, and she needs the attention and feeling of being wanted she doesn't get at school/work/etc., but neither of them want to die alone. In the end, they admit their feelings for each other, but both of them say two phrases at the unlikeliness of the fact:
    "We're in danger, sleeping with a friend. Even though we're technically not." (the boy)
    "I don't go out, much like I used to, something about the strangers and the noise. But. You're different, even though it's a risk to even fall in love with you." (the girl).
