If you call me at all
Don't tell me that I'm ordinary
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read

Turn off this light, call my name
Don't talk, just ride
Who wouldn't let you be all about,
About me
I'm only trying to work this out

So, if you call me at all
Don't tell me that I'm ordinary
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave.
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read
If you call me at all

Oh, I hear you breathing on the line
Oh baby girl, I'm not your type
I'll leave you hurting every night
So I won't be coming back
Who wouldn't let me be all alone
Who wouldn't let me be all alone
Who wouldn't let you scream ohh to a soft pillow

I'm such an animal
And baby honestly these teeth won't let you go

Don't tell me that I'm ordinary
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read
If you call me at all
Don't tell me that I'm ordinary
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read
If you call me at all
If you call me at all
If you call me at all
If you call me at all
If you call me at all

    Well kids, its about a man wanting to ride a pony at the mall when the mall closes
    but he doesn't wsnt to ride alone
    and then they are having so much fun that she say "ooh" to a soft pillow
    then you guys go eat and the man eats like an animal
    what am i kidding

    I think it's more a relationship that's slowly falling apart. The girl (most likely vic) is telling the boy (jonny as the boy) that the girl is special. No one will love or understand the boy as much as she does, and if the boy breaks up with her, then he won't find anyone like her. So, to repair the relationship a bit, they have sex, probably so they'll see how much they love each other. But even after the sex, the boy and girl continue to have problems and arguments. The boy is trying to repair the relationship, trying to see through his girlfriend's eyes, and the girl doing the same, yet they can't figure it out.

    It's how a lot of relationships seem to me. Two people in love, there's just a lot of obstacles they must face before they can both be happy.

    It's clearly about sex, but also clearly about the other emotions involved as well. It's a duality. They have sex, and on the one hand he knows that he's no good for her and just plans to move on, but on the other he likes feeling wanted by her and considers if it could be more.

    I think this song is about how vic and john from dance gaving dance secretly want to have sex with each other as its shown when they say "please don't leave"... "turn off this light, call my name" they just don't want to make it seem so obvious. This is so cute, how they secretly love each other.

    I think its a play on words for most of it. Its supposed to sound like sex but think about it. "ill leave you hurting every night" and "im such an animal" could mean he wants to be with her, but hed break her heart every night. And im guessing "dont tell me that im ordinary" isnt about his sex skills, but he wants to feel special.
