I'm on a trip,
I can't get off,
Can't get over...
I want it all,
I want it all
Inside of you...

I call you you up
You're getting off
I'm coming over

You're 21
I see your eyes, you're barely sober
I hear your voice
You're calling out
From me to you
I pour a drink
You move in quick,
You're moving forward

Then you said,
Noooo, whoahhhh
I'm never gonna be inside of you
And I said,
Noooo, whoahhhh
I'm never gonna see inside of you
Because, I know, I'm gonna fall
And you'll be waiting for it all
Because, I know, I know, I know
I can't get inside of you,
Inside of you.

This fragile game
It's like a train that's headed nowhere
It never stops
And I can't see the exit sign
We're headed North
I see the cliff
We're getting closer

So don't say that you just want to run away
Replay all the things that I tried to say
I'm 21
So you're getting off
I'm coming over

Then you said,
Noooo, whoahhhh
I'm never gonna be inside of you
And I said,
Noooo, whoahhhh
I'm never gonna see inside of you
Because, I know, I'm gonna fall
And you'll be waiting for it all
Because, I know, I know, I know
I can't get inside of you,
Inside of you.

I'm on a trip,
I can't get off,
Can't get over...
I want it all,
I want it all
Inside of you

I call you up,
You're getting off,
I'm coming over
(Yeah, yeah, yeahhh)

Noooo, whoahhhh
I'm never gonna be inside of you
And I said,
Noooo, woahhhh
I'm never gonna see inside of you
Because, I know, I'm gonna fall
And you'll be waiting for it all
Because, I know, I know, I know
I can't get inside of you.

I know, I'm gonna fall
And you'll be waiting for it all
Because, I know, I know, I know
I can't get inside of you,
Inside of you.

I'm on a trip,
I can't get off,
Can't get over...
I want it all,
I want it all
Inside of you

I call you up,
You're getting off,
I'm coming over
(Yeah, yeah, yeahhh)

    About two people; ones been hurt and is scared of taking a chance on a relationship, the other one when saying " i'm never gonna be inside of you " is referring to the heart. That person wants to take the chance and help the other person trust again, but the other person is too scared and won't open their heart.

    Its been awhile that i let my heart open, and after all this time. It wants to open up, rather i want it to or not. I am having strong feelings for this new guy in my life, and maybe poss, kinda sorta falling a little bit. To me this song means exactly what i am talking about. Being afraid to open up to him/her, being afraid to trip and fall into a love. That may or may not hurt you.

    It's not about sex. Two friends are 21 and they like to drink together (you're getting off i'm coming over)
    they get drunk and their true emotions come out "woahh ooh ooohhh i can't get inside of you" meaning that he'll never see her true colors and her true self.

    The line, "i'm never gonna see inside of you," conspicuously means that poor john o' isn't quite understanding his girlfriend or whoever it may be he is singing to. They say they love him and care about him, yet they like to see him fall. He just is baffled by why they do what they do, but deeply wants to know.

    It's about two people who are, most likely, having sex. They want to open up to each other emotionally, but they're both scared. "inside of you" sounds sexual, but it means inside the heart. He doesn't feel like he should express his feelings because she won't open up. And she probably feels the same way, but neither will admit it.
