What do the neighbors say When they hear us scream at night Do they talk about a love all in tatters What do the neighbors know About the heart and soul The fire down below that really matters They can never guess in the silences That all I want is you And the sexy hurricane we got here, oh, babe
All I want is you I don't want a man who says "Good morning, dear", no, I don't (All I want is you, all that I want is you) (All I want is you, nobody else, no one but you)
Let 'em listen at the door Let 'em listen through the floor Let 'em go ahead and draw the wrong conclusion So chase me 'round the room Make me crazy like the moon They can never guess in the silences And all I want is you And the sexy hurricane that we share (We share, yeah)
All I want is you I don't want a man who tiptoes up the stairs, no, I don't (All I want is you, all that I want is you) (All I want is you, nobody else, no one but you)
They can never guess in the silences That all I want is you (All I want is you) And the sexy hurricane that we share, oh uh oh
All I want is you I don't want a man who tiptoes up the stairs (He's gonna fall) All I want is you And your freight train Whistlin' over my track, oh uh oh All I want is you And your Mack truck loving Jumping me, Jack Oh uh oh, Jack
(All that I want)

Torque from StockholmI like Carly's sassy and charismatic lyrics. The last line of the song eludes my understanding tho. The one with "your Mack truck jumping...". Can anyone explain this line for me? Thanks in advance.
Robbie from Elizabethtown, KyI've always imagined this to be about an older couple who have been together for quite a while that bicker and argue but have developed a very strong bond and are still very passionate and romantic.

Dido helped shut down a Neo-Nazi Web site after learning it was using "White Flag" to promote its hateful messages. Owners of the site had misinterpreted the track as racist and thought they represented their white supremacy views.
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
