Have you got colour in your cheeks?

from Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This girl’s got red cheeks, most likely due to handsome, cavalier demeanor of Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner

The pairing of “have you got colour in your cheeks” and the inquiry “do you ever get the fear” implies that the lyricist has a sense of dread and impending loss. If she felt the way he did, her cheeks would indeed be colorless.

Flush cheeks can be a sign of intoxication, nervousness, embarrassment and/or sexual excitement. The singer is looking for signs that she is reacting to him in some way, indicating interest is still there.
