You will move
With me we will
Stay still and
Words will move
Around us
Surround us in gold
And inn our world
We will be
Silent.

You will swim
To me we will
Be free
And words will
Swim around us
Surround us in
Schools and in
Our cool
We'll be reminded.

That you refuse to fade away
I hide to stay the same
Where do we go from here
I don't know.

For me you flower to be chosen
I fall down to be noticed
Where do we go from here I don't know.

It was a time
A way of life
The only secrets We talked about
Were all the fears
In all these years
We spent together.

    My Interpretationthis and "hated because of great qualities" really flow into eachother so smoothly... both musically, and in their underlying story in the lyrical content.

    General CommentDepending on your nature and self assurance, you flower or fall to be noticed, you are noticed, you grow with a person, and after all the time, all the words and discussions, and all the obsessions with each other's faults, you are reminded. You "love each other despite great faults". The "where do we go from here?" To me is about that plateau time, when a relationship is past initial enchantment, and drama (fears, etc). What does the relationship turn into? how to grow up and mature? In the end you are both together, you will move together, and all the words are over. You are finally free, as long as you stick around to find out.

    I love the last part:

    It was a time
    A way of life
    The only secrets
    We talked about
    Were all the fears
    In all these years
    We spent together.

    To me, this bit really is about all the relationships a person has when they are growing (and maybe when a person is a bit immature, but naturally so), until one day, with a particular person, all the words are over and you are free to finally stay in silence. If you are lucky enough to have parents, or maybe even grandparents that are still married, you will know what I'm talking about, they stayed to find out. They are free and move together, no matter what.

    General Commenta little bit of trivia: letting up despite great faults named themselves after this song (allthingsgomusic.com/…)
