A cold winter sun
My feet underground
A pale winter city
A numbness for sound
I'll wait back here

All that you notice
A moment in time
A photograph lost here
Since you were mine
I'll wait back here

Or should I
Start pushing my way back
Yeah, should I start
Pushing my way back

I walk past your room
In deep silhouette
You're tired of racing
You're down and I said
I'll wait back here

A cold end, and evening
A soaked cigarette
I'm asleep on a shoulder
That I've never met
I'll wait back here

Or should I
Start pushing my way back
Yeah, should I start
Pushing my way back

Cold, and the whiskey is wearing
And I'm on the edge of my breath
Oh, and I'm thinking of leaving
I could just lay down
Lay down and freeze to death

Hey yeah yeah
Oh, hold on
Yeah...
Hey yeah yeah
Oh, hold on

A cold winter sun
My feet underground
A pale winter city
A numbness for sound

    General Commenti think it's about two people who haven't broken up yet but have grown apart. He feels cold because he remembers how much he used to love her, and now they are both tired of trying. He wonders if he should starting making an effort to get their relationship back to what it was, "should I start pushing my way back"

    General CommentI think it's about trying to decide how much space and time to give someone after a fight.

    General CommentI think it's about the time after a break-up. He feels desperate and everything around him is cold. He can't find his way back into his old life...

    General Commenti think its about being in to deep. he's in a situation he can't get out of, and can't deside whether to deal with it, or to just forget about it and be numb.

    General CommentI believe this song is about being in a relationship with someone with a mood disorder (bi-polar perhaps?).
    They live together and he is having a hard time dealing with her psychological problems- he wants to run but at the same time he wants to wait it out.
    He's sleeping a shoulder that he's never met because he doesn't know all sides of her.
    When he says, "You're tired of racing
    You're down and I said" I think he means she is coming down from a manic episode.
    In the end, again, he is contemplating running away from it all. If he sticks around, he will "freeze to death" from all the coldness around him and in the relationship.

    I love this song..

    General Commentits about the awkward couple of days after u hook up with someone that you want to start something with. sounds like she may have just gotten out of a relationship shes 'tired of racing' 'down and [UPSET]'. he obviously sees it going somewhere and is willing to wait for her but he second guesses himself like he may be passing up a better opportunity while waiting.
