Hey sister why you all alone?
I'm standing out your window
Hey little sister, can I come inside, dear?

I wanna show you all my love
I wanna be the only one
I know you like nobody ever, baby

Little sister can't you find another way
No more livin' life behind a shadow
[X2]

You whisper secrets in my ear
Slowly dancing cheek to cheek
It's such a sweet thing when you open up, baby
They say I'll only do you wrong
We come together cause I understand
Just who you really are, baby

    Alex you overreact :) you cant just GET RID of all your QUOTSA. Its not that simple. You have to go to rehab and get medication and become obssessed with another band.

    No! Lol, its not about incest, they asked Josh in an interview what it was about, and he said he wrote it cause he was going out with a girl, but then he ended up having the hots for her younger sister instead. Its not HIS little sister he's singing about.

    @alex88AFI: why is an AFI fan listening to queens to begin with. you should throw out all your AFI cds. they're all about hipsters.

    I agree with the alex who isnt over reacting.

    As for some of the comments:
    1. If you'd readily through away any bands cds over the lyrics, you don't deserve to listen to them.

    2. Music is about much more than hipsters or watever, most bands make what they feel is important. You either like it or you dont, theres no bad music.

    I dont want to cause trouble. There isnt alot i'll argue over, but music is one thing i will.

    Alexk554 is correct; it is about wanting to trade in a girl you are dating for her younger sister. Elvis had a song called little sister with the exact same theme
