The person described in the song is suddenly overcome with joy as they release their ambitions. 'She hid around corners and she hid under beds. She killed it with kisses and from it she fled With every bubble she sank with a drink.' Now the person is free to play hide and seek, kiss playfully and relax. Part of the chorus shows that she has left 'longing' and wants behind her. 'Leave all your love and your longing behind you. Can't carry it with you if you want to survive.' The message is further explained when the singer says 'And I never wanted anything from you. Except everything you had.' The singer wanted everything but that desire trapped her and made her feel unhappy - now she is free.
