You've Got Her in Your Pocket
The White Stripes Lyrics


You've got her in your pocket
And there is no way out now
Put it in the safe and lock it
Cause it's home sweet home

Nobody ever told you that it was the wrong way
To trick a woman, make her feel she did it her way
And you'll be there if she ever feels blue
And you'll be there when she finds someone new
What to do
Well you know

You keep her in your pocket
Where there's no way out now
Put it in the safe and lock it
Cause it's home sweet home

The smile on your face made her think
She had the right one
Then she thought she was sure
By the way you two could have fun
But now she might leave
Like she's threatened before
Grab hold of her fast
Before her feet leave the floor
And she's out the door
Cause you want

To keep her in my pocket
Where there's no way out now
Put it in the safe and lock it
Cause it's home sweet home

And in your own mind
You know you're lucky just to know her
And in the beginning all you wanted
Was to show her
But now you're scared
You think she's running away
You search in you hand for something clever to say
Don't go away
Cause I want

To keep you in my pocket
Where there's no way out
Put it in the safe and lock it
Cause it's home sweet home

Home sweet home

Robyn


on Candy Cane Children

The meaning of this song is basically saying the older you get, the less fun Christmas becomes usually do to adulthood. The lines "don't you know your name?...", probably refers to the adults telling kids to grow up as if they're saying "Do you know how old you are? You're getting too old for this stuff." Probably why he put the lines "nobody knows how to talk to children". Also, he puts the lines "think again" after a thought of one of the kids thinking of wishing to participate in Christmas activities. As if they're thinking "Yeah I probably AM too old for this.." "364 more tears girl" the sadness of getting older. Not participating feels like a missed opportunity and causes even more sadness..
