"Marble Steps" as written by and Bonnie Leigh Mckee Bonnie Mckee....
I climb the marble stairs that lead away
Away from everything I used to know
I try to keep my eyes down on the way
The way my mother told me not to go

Well all I ever wanted was
A hand to hold me down
To keep the sky from swallowing me up
And all I ever needed was someone to come around
And tell me that I've suffered long enough

So take me away
Find me a home
I'm on my way
I'm on my way

I wonder when I'll see the stars again
I thought that they had faded long ago
With every step I'm closer to the end
I'm climbing 'cause I don't know where to go

Well all I ever wanted was
A place to store my faith
I thought that I could keep it locked away
It burns my eyes to look at him
And see the truth inside
And so I turn my broken face away

So take me away
Find me a home
I'm on my way
I'm on my way

I always dreamed of Sundays together with you
Only your echoes can break my heart
I need a hand to hold me, to keep me on land
I fear I'm drifting too far apart

Well all I ever wanted was
A hand to hold me down
To keep the sky from swallowing me up
And all I ever needed was someone to come around
And tell me that I've suffered long enough

Oh, take me away
Find me a home
I'm on my way
I'm on my way

I'm on my way
On my way
I'm on my way
And now I'm gone
I'm gone
I'm on my way

    My InterpretationI felt like it was about her just being so tired of everything going on, all she wanted was to have somewhere she was happy, someone who would look after her, hold her down from going too far, but at the same time love her and give her freedom. I think she's talking about either, knowing she's going the wrong way in life, but going anyway, "away from everything i used to know.... the way my mother told me not to go" or whether she's trying to pull herself AWAY from there. she's already gone down the wrong road, and is trying to lead herself away from it again. Either way, its one of my favorites on Trouble ♥
