Cause it's cold out outside
When you coming home?
Cause it's hot inside
Is that not enough?
Not In Love by Crystal Castles (Ft. Robert Smith of the Cure)

It’s lonely on your own, in contrast to the comfort and warmth of Rob’s love. Will his ex come back to him?

A link to another one of the Cure’s all-time best love songs — if he serenaded his ex with this, she would definitely come home:

I saw your picture, hanging on the back of my door Not In Love by Crystal Castles (Ft. Robert Smith of the Cure)

If literally true, Rob has strange/slightly creepy tastes in interior decoration — it’s not usual to keep photos of your ex, or even your current, on the back of your door.

Rob Smith does enjoy creepy imagery (see below screen shot from one of his all-time most amazing songs, Lullaby), however, so this should not be entirely surprising.

A man who's pure of heart and says his prayers by night
May still become a wolf when the autumn moon is bright
Howl by Florence and the Machine

Anyone, even the most pure of heart can turn into a “wolf” under the right conditions, into a more animalistic, possessive dude.

The last line is a well-known quote from the 1941 movie The Wolf Man
