So close,
Yet barely breathing,
My responses are weak.

Though my eyes are shut tightly.
May I see you brightly.

Handshakes and fake smiles
Always make me nervous...
Close the door.
Please, close the door.

We rise and fall
From you.
We rise and fall
Far from you.
Climb, climb, climb...
We fall.

May we learn from
The signals of our past,
The sharpest words we cast
And begin again.

I can hear their voices
Through the walls of this place...
This cold, cold place
We rise and fall from you,
We rise and fall far from you.

So close, Yet barely breathing,
My responses are weak.

Trace these fingerprints, closely now
And they will form what you're looking for.
We'll make new prints once more.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. It's hard for me to interpret what it means, but i'll give it a try. I think "Though my eyes are shut tightly. May I see you brightly." means that the person is praying to God and that he wants to meet with Him really bad. I have some ideas about the whole song's message, but they don't make any sense and they would take me too long to convey via my keyboard.

    General Comment"We rise and fall from you, We rise and fall far from you". This seems a reference of our praises, and then our human mistakes, especially because of the next line "Climb, climb, climb... we fall"

    "May we learn from
    The signals of our past,
    The sharpest words we cast
    And begin again"

    Again, we may disappoint God, but hopefully, we will learn from this. And try again.
