ain't it funny how we pretend we're still a child
softly stolen under our blanket skies
and rescue me from me, and all that i believe
i wont deny the pain
i wont deny the change
and should i fall from grace here with you
will you leave me too?
carve out your heart for keeps in an old oak tree
and hold me for goodbyes-and whispered lullabyes
and tell me i am still
the man i'm supposed to be
i wont deny the pain
i wont deny the change
and should i fall from grace here with you
will you leave me too?
too late to turn back now
im running out of sound
and i am changing, changing
and if we died right now this fool you love somehow
is here with you
i wont deny the pain
i wont deny the change
and should i fall from grace here with you
would you leave me too?

    My InterpretationThis song rang so true during my first and only heartbreak. "I won't deny the pain, I won't deny the change".

    Yet over the years this song is becoming even more real to me because I am seeing now that it is about the evolution of a particular love - a transition of one love to another, an institution of change which involves a serious skepticism based on the prospect of being hurt once again.

    "and should i fall from grace here with you
    will you leave me too?
    too late to turn back now
    im running out of sound
    and i am changing, changing"

    The difficulty and indecision of leaving one for another. It is about a conflicting love. Inevitable, undeniable change. Yet there will always be worry for what you're leaving.
