(Do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways

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

Meaning

Simply stated, Alex is wondering if the feelings he’s talking about in the first verse are what the girl feels as well.

Also he’s not sure if even wants to know if she has the feelings that he has. Because if she doesnt it will be hurt, so he’s better off not knowing at all.

This song is strongly about unrequited love or one-sided love. He almost knows the answer is no, yet he doesn’t want to even think about it because he’s so in love with her.
