    white houses lol jk

    While we all know the most obvious meaning to white houses because of the bridge, it is about so much more than losing your virginity.

    In concert Vanessa analysis this song wonderfully, she says: "White Houses, they're so common and seemingly boring and they're just copies and copies of each other and all of the dirty and colorful and bold and beautiful things that happen in white houses, and thank God for white houses, and thank God for rows and rows of white houses. I know people get depressed and I don't know, it somehow simulates how artists and people come out of these kind of common white houses, so heres to all the dirty and wonderful things that go on in white houses. Thank God For White Houses."

    here is the lyrics of that song so i think now u can get complate meaning of this song...

    Crashed on the floor when I moved in

    This little bungalow with some strange new friends

    Stay up too late, and I'm too thin

    We promise each other it's till the end

    Now we're spinning empty bottles

    It's the five of us

    With pretty eyed boys girls die to trust

    I can't resist the day

    No, I can't resist the day

    Jenny screams out and it's no pose

    'Cause when she dances she goes and goes

    Beer through the nose on an inside joke

    I'm so excited, I haven't spoken

    And she's so pretty, and she's so sure

    Maybe I'm more clever than a girl like her

    The summer's all in bloom

    The summer is ending soon

    It's alright and it's nice not to be so alone

    But I hold on to your secrets in white houses

    Maybe I'm a little bit over my head

    I come undone at the things he said

    And he's so funny in his bright red shirt

    We were all in love and we all got hurt

    I sneak into his car's cracked leather seat

    The smell of gasoline in the summer heat

    Boy, we're going way too fast

    It's all too sweet to last

    It's alright

    And I put myself in his hands

    But I hold on to your secrets in white houses

    Love, or something ignites in my veins

    And I pray it never fades in white houses

    My first time, hard to explain

    Rush of blood, oh, and a little bit of pain

    On a cloudy day, it's more common than you think

    He's my first mistake

    Maybe you were all faster than me

    We gave each other up so easily

    These silly little wounds will never mend

    I feel so far from where I've been

    So I go, and I will not be back here again

    I'm gone as the day is fading on white houses

    I lie, put my injuries all in the dust

    In my heart is the five of us

    In white houses

    And you, maybe you'll remember me

    What I gave is yours to keep

    In white houses

    In white houses

    In white houses

    It's about how she lost her virginity and regretted it.
