"Untitled 1" as written by Timothy James Rice-oxley, Tom Chaplin and Richard David Hughes....
A house on fire
A wall of stone
A door that once was opened
An empty face and empty bones
Who ate your heart?
You're cold inside
You're not the one I hoped for
I'll see you on the other side
I'll see you on the other side

The wind wouldn't blow me home
To lie in your heart of hearts
Will I ever see you again

And lie in your heart of hearts

Who ate your heart?
You're cold inside
You're not the one I hoped for
I'll see you on the other side
I'll see you on the other side

The wind wouldn't blow me home
To lie in your heart of hearts
Will I ever see you again
And lie in your heart of hearts

    General Commentthis song is ace! What can I not say about it. this line alone sums it up for me..

    A house on fire
    A wall of stone
    A door that once was open
    An empty face and empty bones

    how sad is that!! He pleades to let him in, but he too feels empty. Great tune..

    General CommentWell I'm glad I'm not the only one here to adore this tune. Best one off the album, and that says a lot. I can listen to the chorus where Tim joins in every day and night.

    I think, judging by the title, that it's not entirely supposed to have a meaning, and it's more based on the music. This may tie in with why they never play it live.

    My own feeling is that it's about a love changing from everything you loved them for.

    General CommentI see this song, as being about a guy that likes/loves a woman, but shes been hurt before so she wont let him in "Who ate your heart? You're cold inside You're not the one I hoped for" so he has realised that he has to move on, and he will see her on the "otherside" meaning when shes in happy again maybe they will meet again. Shes the wall of stone from the first line, deflecting anything he gives her emotionally and he is the house of fire - ready to warm her heart.

    General CommentI agree with "my bule eyes" yes this could be about being deeply in love but, not exactly ina desparate way as in always together but the couple know they love each other, but may be too in love that the women doesnt let the singer in. who ate your heart. has something happened to the women?. empty face and empty bones. maybe the man has done something wrong or might not be in love any more. It's kind of a very complex song which could have it's own meaning. maybe thats why it wasn't titled.
