Tears for Fears are an English pop/rock band formed in Bath, Avon (now in Somerset since 1996) in 1981 by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Founded after the dissolution of their first band, the mod-influenced Graduate, they were initially associated with the new wave synthesiser bands of the early 1980s but later branched out into mainstream rock and pop, which led to international chart success. They were part of the MTV-driven Second British Invasion of the US.

So...I know little or next to nothing about song writing...I was in hs in the 80's so I didn't even have most of the words correct to my then fav songs.....but I'll give this a shot. (...because I have seen TFF 3 times live and had every LP...so that makes me the expert into their songs...um not)....but I think or feel the song is about marriage....a long marriage that has hit that spot...the spot where the couple have been together for many years and things are sort of dull at the moment. Lyrics say to me, marriage is dull...but I love you and don't want the marriage to end....but what the hell do we do now? There...my tiny thoughts.
