"The Space Between" as written by Henry Binns, Sam Hardaker and Tina Dickow....
Now that you're older
Taking the time to look
Back over your shoulder
On the days confusion took

Now that you're wiser
Surely you've learned to read it
You should know
No surface shines brighter
Than the light that burns beneath it

Never so sure
We always take more
Though we still don't know what it's for

Now that I've seen you
Stripped to the very core
I know that I need you
Less than I did before

Never so sure
We always take more
Though we still don't know what it's for

    General Commentamazing. if you have heard this song, then you will know what i mean. superficiality, that is what this song is about. when you realize that someone is shallow, you see them for what they are for: nothing. if you have been in a relationship like this before, then you know exactly what i am talking about. it takes time to become more aware of how the world and people work. no other comments needed.

    "alcohol lubricates the brain."

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a lost opportunity to be with someone. Now that the opportunity is lost, it is too late to ever be with that person.

    The singer (Tina Dico) and the fellow had an opportunity to be together, but there was confusion and uncertainty at the time. Now that time has passed, hindsight is 20/20. He should know that he missed out, "No surface shines brighter, Than the light that burns beneath it."

    After time has passed, she encounters him, but he's changed. Instead of being with her, he chose another path that had left him weathered and worn, he lost his verve. She realizes she doesn't need him anymore.

    The space between the time they had a chance together, to the day she saw him again.. made them strangers, instead of lovers.
