Should you let the chance slip to see it crack
As it hits the floor?
You can't hold on to it and hang on to what you
Had before
Decisions hang in the air you leave them swinging
Back and forth

One thousand reasons to stay
One thousand reasons to come away
One thousand reasons to hold on to
What you have got in this life anyway

I push for what I really want so it moves
Away from me
It's like you've set your heart on ice and set a date
When you'll melt it free
Everything you really feel will remain
A mystery

    My OpinionAt first I thought it's about all those difficult decisions in relationships, but I was listening to this song again today and it kind of struck me that it can perhaps be a song about suicide contemplation?
