I've got doors, she's got windows
I see in, but only she knows what goes on underneath the ceiling
I wonder what she's thinking,
Frank Hamilton's official lyric explanation
Flaws and Ceilings is about trying to figure someone out really. As the verse sort of says, like, “I’ve got doors, she’s got windows…” So she can, kind of, come into my house and see what’s going on and I can only really peer through her windows and try and figure out what’s going on. It’s just about trying to figure someone out.
