"Come with me," he said and erased it from his mind
"be with me now," but of love we are frightened stiff
We'd rather leave and head for the skies
than say all the right words too soon

"And I never thought you would
But always knew you could"

"We take off from here," and in that
instant nothing remained of what was
whereas the soul provides, freedom
narrowed down for the taking

"I never wanted you to lie
-never needed fragments of your day"
A broken promise made,
to always come around
-never to stay

And as tired as cliches come
did not expect nor frown upon
lighter hearts have taken bait
Sweetened words now with bitter taste

A distance kept that never fails to close us in
and forget the days that still linger on
inside the single part of two
We'd rather leave no trace and not look back

    General CommentI think this song is about marriage. Marriage vows being the "right words" that are said "too soon."

    "Never needed fragments of your day" seems to mean that marriage breeds familiarity, which strains the relationship.

    The song talks about how it is a tired cliche that many have participated in, only to ultimately find disappointment.

    I really like this song and would be interested to hear what others think about it.

    General CommentThis is in fact probably about marriage (in a negative light :-), but I always imagined it as being about a couple of lovers (think romeo and juliet) who suddenly must be separated, and the song recounts their last night together, and the loneliness they suffer afterwards.
    But I'm probably wrong.

    DT rocks!

    General CommentWell,I don´t speak English,so there are parts of this song i don´t understand.I think it talk about pride in a relationship(maybe marriage):"We'd rather leave and head for the skies than say all the right words too soon",and this pride carries to infidelity:"And I never thought you would
    But always knew you could"
    But this is my opinion.
    Greets you all

    General CommentIt's about a guy avoiding marriage.

    "A broken promise made to come around, never to stay"
    To stay would be marriage, to come around is basically just to get some ass.

    It's more or less a song about pimpin'.
