The sounds of yesterday still echo in my head
Distant conflicts unresolved
We were young once,
and in love
Nothing was more real...
more real to feel.

Fools for lovers,
children are
in petty circumstance
Like razors seen
more clearly now
Watching from the outside
looking down
I feel so helpless

I see angels trapped beneath the ice
And strangers in my bed at night
Cloudy skies to cover up
the feelings buried in the dark
Helen, i think you understand
The night is silent in your hands
I give it everything I have
And when its gone
There's nothing left but me

sadness whispers her condolences
For the greatest tragedy of all is love lost
But the greatest virtue belongs to those
who will give everything
to love again...
It is a test

I don't think its fair to blame each other
For the happiness we sought but didn't find
Gibran's words i heard in angel's eyes
Too young to understand
But I pause as we grow between the lines
And if the walls of our communion fall to nothingness
How wrong the dreamers would be
But I won't accept it,
I won't give up
World be damned,
for love is hard
And this time...
This time...
I'm not running away

I see angels trapped beneath the ice
And strangers in my bed at night
Cloudy skies to cover up
the feelings buried in the dark
Helen, i think you understand
The night is silent in your hands
I give it everything I have
And when its gone
There's nothing left

I see angels trapped beneath the ice
And strangers in my bed at night
Cloudy skies to cover up
the feelings buried in the dark
Helen, i think you understand
The night is silent in your hands
I give it everything I have
And when its gone
There's nothing left but me

There is always hope,
and the strongest and the bravest
will always keep it close to them
For if you surrender hope,
then love was right to leave you

I see angels trapped beneath the ice
And strangers in my bed at night
Cloudy skies to cover up
the feelings buried in the dark
Helen, i think you understand
The night is silent in your hands
I give it everything I have
And when its gone
There's nothing left

I see angels trapped beneath the ice
And strangers in my bed at night
Cloudy skies to cover up
the feelings buried in the dark
Helen, i think you understand
The night is silent in your hands
I give it everything I have
And when its gone
There's nothing left but me

    General CommentWonderful song, especially with the spoken parts of holding on to hope. I feel the song's meaning is that it describes how the singer (whether it be Rogue or someone else) had given so much to someone, but after breaking up and looking back at the relationship, the singer believes there can be a second chance if given.

    But that's how I see it on the cover. There may be some different meaning underneath the veil.


    And a tip: the extended version has an added verse --

    "Everything in life has a purpose
    everything you feel has meaning in the world.
    Everything in life has a purpose
    sometimes that purpose is somebody else."
