Pack up;
I'm straight;
Enough;
Oh say, say, say; you'll
Say, say, say; you'll
Say, say, say; you'll
Say, say, say; you'll
Say, say, say

Wait, they don't love you like I love you;
Wait, they don't love you like I love you;
Ma-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-aps;
Wait! They don't love you like I love you.

Made off;
Don't stray;
Well, my kind's your kind;
I'll stay the same!
Pack up;
But don't stray;
Oh say, say, say;
I'll say, say, say!

Wait! They don't love you like I love you
Wait! They don't love you like I love you;
Ma-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-aps;
Wait! They don't love you like I love you!
Wait! They don't love you like I love you!
Ma-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-aps!
Wait! They don't love you like I love you

Wait! They don't love you like I love you;
Wait! They don't love you like I love you;
Ma-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-aps;
Wait! They don't love you like I love you!
Wait! They don't love you like I love you!
Ma-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-aps!
Wait! They don't love you like I love you

    This song is about a woman's heartbreak as she loses the man she loves to the magical and intoxicating world of cartography. What began as a hobby has transitioned to obsession and he is being forced to move out, as he searches the globe for bigger, better, and more obscure maps. Typical girl loves boy, boy loves cartography story.

    I'll start by saying that in it's simplicity this song is true work of art. and i am in complete agree-ins with (jaejeb) but on a side not i thing the punctuation is wrong it because she is asking the lover to say they will wait.

    Sounds like someone moving on, moving somewhere far away. They have need of "maps", plural. "They" is also plural, not just obscuring gender, makes me think the song is saying that the people, as in multiple people, waiting for this person, or who will be there wherever they go, don't love them as much as the singer does. So don't fall for someone else, it's not worth it.

    -OR-

    Could be about a fellow rocker ("my kind's your kind"), touring, packing up, maps. Perhaps asking that he remember his fangirls "don't love you like I love you."
