Are these the official lyrics? Otherwise, I hear some different lyrics:
• "high heels" makes more sense than "high hills", especially in the line "stand up in the high heels".
• "and the time ticks slightly back" fits my interpretation below more than "in the time takes sliding back". Especially with the later line "twelve o'clock"
Sounds to me like the lyrics are running in reverse, starting with the relationship that's fallen apart, and winding back the clock to reveal previous stages in the relationship. Starts with "if i lose you in the street", the fear that it's over. Moves backward into a fight "wassup with your friends?", then back into the spawning of doubt: "raining in my room, sweet and sleepy/keep us together". Moves back again into some sweeter, personal relationship references: "forever
you can be me, swim". Toward the end we have "contact", possibly the lovers' first contact.
I would agree with startingfromrocks comment about all the music references. In my interpretation they fit in with the soundtrack running through the relationship, mixtapes, songs that mean something to the lovers etc.
