the waters colder at the edge
and they dived for hours
past sundown
until the body was wasted ,was wasted
did they conspire to this?
did you conspire to?
thirty three and a half
until the end
as we sway from ear to ear
and you heels look so beautiful
against the carpet, against the carpet
so gracefull, yet to so insecure
this ghost will haunt you
and i will judge you fair

    General CommentThis song has got to be a metaphor for something but i'm not quite sure what. Awesome song. Would have fit perfect on Casually Dressed and Deep in Conversation. Short and sweet, the typical Funeral for a Friend format.

    General Commenti think this song rocks and i know a few people that just think 'it is a load of words just thrown into a big paragraph and just sung with a bit of music' (as one of my friends said) but i think there is more to it than that and im not really into thinking about the music im more into thinking about the lyrics and the meaning behind them. so when i listen to it i always think of something diferent for some reason and i guess there is only realy one meaning to it but seem to think of diferent meanings, maybe because im realy random or maybe because there is more htan one meaning behind it.. we will never know. im a bit of a freek realy :S

    General CommentThe song has a really strong meaning to me.. Not sure if its right or not but.. (:
    I think someone was murdered && theyre searching for the body.. "and they dived for hours, past sundown, until the body was wasted" Clearly they didnt find it && the body rotted..
    The "33 and a half, until the end" i think the person died at 33 and a half.. seems pretty simple but i think thats maybe it?

    General CommentYou only really have to watch the music video to understand aswel, there is obvious inspiration from the surrealist artist Rene Magritte's The Lovers; 'The Lovers may be a visual depiction of the idea "love is blind". I personally interpret it as the mystery that veils our understanding of a lover, who is never completely known to us.'

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my best friend who is also the cutest girl I've ever known. This song is about everything love is about, and how is so magnificent and dangerous at the same time.
    **MG This song is for you. You are a dream, That's why I'll fall a sleep for you. Forever yours**
