Radiohead – Nude lyrics
Don't get any big ideas
They're not gonna happen
You paint yourself white
And fill up with noise
There'll be something missing
And now that you found it
It's gone
Now that you feel it
You don't
You've gone off the rails

She stands stark naked
And she beckons you to bed
Don't go, you'll only want
To come back again

So don't get any big ideas
They're not gonna happen
You'll go to Hell
For what your
Dirty mind is thinking

And now that you found it
It's gone
Now that you feel it
You don't
It's gone forever

    I'm quite sure that the song talks about a woman, but I like to think that the lyrics have a deeper meaning, about the life itself. They explain the ephemerality of love and happiness, when you find happiness is gone and when you feel love it's so short that you are not feeling it anymore, just an instant. And then, the rest of your life is noise, things you buy, things you think that are important but they only make you feel empty, like something is missing.
    For me, the song it's a great reflexion. It makes me value the moments that make my life have sense. Even if it's just a moment.

    What I understand is that he is in love with a woman far away from him, he thinks that maybe somehow he will be able to be with her, but at the same time his mid tells him to forget it, because it can't really be that way for whatever reason, so it would be better to pretend he is alright without her. I kinda feel something like that in my life actually.

    I think basically the song is about a woman who is a perpetual tease. He's warning the man who's in love with her to not keep falling in love with her because she's fake and won't really love him back. The man might actually be himself. He clearly lusts after her, but that's not enough to sustain their relationship. The thing that's gone forever is the love he thought they shared.

    These lyrics posted, sound like what thom originally wrote and they played on stage years ago, maybe around ok computer? I've seen concerts on YouTube where the song has an organ and the lyrics, if I remember right, match these from then. But of course they were modified for in rainbows. Also, back then, I believe they called the song "don't get any big ideas" instead of "nude". I think the meaning is a combo of his love straying for a girl, but he is already in a relationship he doesn't want to ruin. Plus, I believe it is about dashed dreams and hopes. I think a lot of thom's lyrics have dual/multiple meanings.

    Unrequited love. Quite ironic and humorous based on the music.
    "its gone forever" has never been a lyric to my knowledge. It should read "you've gone off the rails".
    These lyrics are more akin to those sung live around okc tour as others have eluded to, where I recall the line "she kisses you with tongues" as opposed to "she stands stark naked", but both lines have been sung in the past, neither of which made it in the final recorded ir verison.
